Hyderabad: Upping the ante against TDP government for its alleged failures and apathy towards farmers, YSR Congress president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy would undertake a two-day deeksha on June 5 and 6 and his second phase of Rythu Bharosa Yatra will resume from May 11.
“TDP has no moral right to celebrate Vijaya yatra for completing one year in office as the term is littered with failures on all fronts and it has reneged on all the poll promises making a mockery of election manifesto. To highlight the failures of the TDP government during the one year, Y S Jaganmohan Reddy will undertake two-day fast at a venue which will be between Vijayawada and Guntur on June 5 and 6, while his Rythu Bharosa Yatra will continue from Anantapur on May 11,” said party leader Ummareddy Venkateswarlu and party Farmers’ Cell Convener M V S Nagi Reddy at a press conference here on Sunday.
Instead of Vijaya Yatra, TDP should observe Vyphalya (failure) Yatra and it owes an explanation for going back on all the poll promises, more so the failure of waive all agriculture loans, they said. They said Jagan during his two-day deeksha will give a blow-by-blow account on how Naidu had “fooled farmers and other sections of the people” during and after the elections besides exposing his “impractical” tall claims. He will also narrate how the women groups, students, youth and employees were cheated, they added. Jaganmohan Reddy had earlier gone on a two-day deeksha on March 31 and April 1 at Tanuku in West Godavari.
“The facts and figures are there for everyone to see as the State Level Bankers Conference has shown farmers’ debt at Rs 87,612 crores as on March 31, 2014 and it has gone up to Rs 97, 915 crores while the State is claiming to have cleared the loans in two phases,” the YSRC leaders alleged. “The second phase of Rythu Bharosa Yatra will take place from May 11 to 18 from Anantapur. Farmers are at the receiving end and the 11 months of TDP rule is reminding of the nine-year rule of drought and disaster under Naidu’s earlier term,” they said.
Ummareddy Venkateswaralu and Nagi Reddy said the farmers were not getting MSP and are forced to sell the products at less than the MSP, the input costs have gone up manifold and input subsidy was not forthcoming. On the irrigation front, funds are not allocated to the projects that are nearing completion while priority is being given to Pattiseema project which hampers the prospects of Polavaram project, they added.
