TDP legislature party meet
Amaravati: Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu warned his party MLAs to be cautious as only two years are left for the next general elections.
Naidu told the MLAs that they have to perform well and the next one year is very crucial.Addressing the TDP legislature party meeting at Velagapudi here on Tuesday, he asked the legislators to change their attitude and involve the public in the implementation of government welfare schemes.
- Tells MLAs that next one year is very crucial
- Asks them to create awareness among public on the govt welfare schemes
- They should take feedback from grass-roots level workers on implementation of the schemes
- The MLAs should work in coordination with party cadre and officials
- Reiterates that Polavaram will be completed on time
The MLAs should create awareness among public on the government schemes while coordinating with official and party workers.
Describing the changing role of MLAs, he said the MLAs should take up ownership and ensure proper implementation of the welfare schemes. If the government schemes are not implemented properly, the legislators should find the reasons at grass-root level, he suggested.
Expressing displeasure over some MLAs failing to change their attitude even after receiving the performance reports, Naidu made it clear that only those who perform well will retain their seats.
He said that sometimes small things like involving and greeting the people would do wonders by stating that 30 per cent additional benefits would come from such deeds apart from assessment of the real work.
Pointing out that the MLAs have not been coordinating with party leadership and official machinery, he blamed them for not properly highlighting the government schemes which were initiated while facing many challenges.
He said the TDP government is the only government in the country which introduced various welfare schemes for different sections including waiver farm loans to the tune of Rs 24,000 crore.
Explaining the financial challenges faced by the state post bifurcation, he said the government has been promptly paying pensions to 47 lakh beneficiaries and introduced corporations for SCs, BCs, Kapus, minorities, Brahmins and other upper castes to extend financial support to the poor among these sections.
The MLAs were suggested to build better coordination with grass-root level workers by giving priority to their recommendations towards implementation of welfare schemes.
If the legislators forget the democratic principles, the party would face more challenges, he said.
Issuing indirect warning to the MLAs, he said earning of money by following corrupt practices would pose severe challenges.
Following such a path would also lead to committing more mistakes to cover up the earlier wrongdoings.
He said the government would complete Polavaram project and Purushottapatnam Lift Irrigation Scheme on time even if the Opposition created hurdles.
He said the government would provide water for Krishna and Godavari deltas in advance for the ensuing kharif season while nearly 600 tmc ft of water would be diverted to Rayalaseema districts.
Explaining the GST bill, he said the P V Narasimha Rao government had introduced economic reforms in the country. China had introduced such reforms ahead of India.
He said after P V Narasimha Rao, the Congress government failed to take measures for the growth of the nation’s economy. Prime Minister Narendra Modi again has introduced economic reforms.
He hoped that the reforms would help India to emerge as a major player in world’s economy on part with USA and China.
Deputy Chief Ministers K E Krishnamurhty, N Chinarajappa, Finance Minister Yanamala Ramakrishunudu, several TDP MLAs and MLCs attended the meeting.
