- Mahila Samakhya critical of CM for dilly-dallying on loan waiver to DWCRA groups
- NDA lambasted for continuing UPA’s ‘anti-people’ policies
Vijayawada: Andhra Pradesh Mahila Samakhya (APMS) city general secretary P Durgamba on Wednesday flayed Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu for his ‘failure’ to implement his poll promise of waiving loans of poor farmers and DWCRA women groups even six months after coming to power.
Speaking to media persons at Dasari Nagabhushana Rao Bhavan here, she said that DWCRA women were facing untold hardships due to dilly-dallying of the TDP Government on its loan waiver promise. The banks were pressurising the women to repay the loans with interest. But the poor women were not in a position to repay the loans. Hence, the government should waive the loans of DWCRA women without any further delay, she demanded.
Durgamba alleged that the BJP-led NDA Government at the Centre was continuing the ‘anti-people’ policies of the previous UPA regime. The BJP, which opposed the Cash Transfer Scheme (CTS) when it was in opposition, was implementing the same now ignoring the fact that it would affect the poor and middle class families, she said.
She informed the media that the city convention of the Mahila Samakhya held on November 29 and 30 had passed many resolutions pertaining to women’s empowerment. The Samakhya demands inclusion of the provision of 33 per cent reservation for women in legislatures, setting up of vocational training centres for women and effective enforcement of enactments meant for women’s safety. The convention had elected Orusu Bharathi as president, R Rangam, G Rahelamma, Lanka Nagamani, Tammina Durga, A Nagamani and Ch Parvathi as vice-presidents, I Lakshmi, M Lakshmi, D Seetharavamma, D Ramanamma, M Indira and Krishna Kumari as secretaries and Subbalakshmi as treasurer, she added.
