Kadapa: Jana Sena Party (JSP) president K Pawan Kalyan on Sunday said that Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy had no moral right to continue in the Chief Minister's chair as he does not bother about welfare of the State and instead was always concentrating on how to loot public money.
As part of his tour in Kadapa district, the JSP chief addressed party activists in a meeting at Railway Kodur. Pawan said Jagan was not acting in a diplomatic manner as Chief Minister. The JSP leader criticised YSRCP MPs for taking a decision in favour of continuing the uranium factory at Tummala Palli village in Pulivendula constituency despite people in surrounding eight villages expressing concern over the ill-effects on health due to the factory.
"Tomorrow I will visit Tummala Palli village to know the grievances of people. It is unfortunate that the Chief Minister is least bothered on the issue despite people suffering from various diseases due to the ill-effects on health caused by the uranium factory. The YSRCP activists are looting the mines, " Pawan said.
The Jana Sena chief lashed out at YSRCP government for its failure to exert pressure on Centre to sanction the Special Category Status to Andhra Pradesh. He also pointed out that Jagan has not been able to ask Centre to establish steel plant in Kadapa though the issue has been mentioned in AP Reorganisation Act-2013.
Stating that Rayalaseema region has a great culture, he however said backwardness is plaguing the area due to lack of clarity and vision among political leaders. Pawan wondered why Chief Minister Jagan failed to respond when turmeric farmers in Kadapa district expressed concern over lack of minimum support price. The Jana Sena chief said that he would write a letter to the Centre on the issue.
Saying that his party was not against introducing English medium in government schools, he said at the same time it is the responsibility of the government to protect Telugu language as it is the mother tongue of people residing in the State. Party leaders Nadendla Manohar, Lashmi Narayana, Sunkara Srinivas and others were present.
