Cong alone can save country: Raghuveera
PCC President N Raghuveera Reddy: Congress Alone Can Save Country, only after obtaining the written approval from the political parties the Centre went ahead with the division of the State.
Madanapalle: PCC president N Raghuveera Reddy criticised the YSRCP and TDP for carping on Congress party and singling it out as responsible for the division of the State. Addressing a public meeting here on Sunday, Raghuveera pointed out that only after obtaining the written approval from the political parties the Centre went ahead with the division of the State. As such, it is most improper, unethical and opportunistic politics to blame the Congress party alone for the division of the State, he said.
On the exodus of Congress leaders to other parties, he said that only those who misused the position they got from the party to amass crores of rupees and assets had left it, leaving behind the sincere and loyal, indirectly saying that his party was purged of the undesirable elements that were now in other parties. He further said, “Crorepathis in YSRCP, BJP and TDP were keen to win not with the support of the people but solely with money power.” Reiterating party commitment to implement the promises made in its election manifesto, he said that the sops announced, including nine-hour free power supply to agriculture, five per cent reservation to Muslim minorities, inclusion of Valmikis in ST list and Mursikapu sect of Reddy community into BC list, waiving SHG loans up to Rs 1 lakh, etc., were realistic unlike the tall promises made by TDP and YSRCP which were out to hoodwink the people with unrealistic and impractical assurances. Congress alone can save country, he said.
Rajampet MP A Saipratap said that he was elected MP six times only because of his services to the people and developing the constituency. Congress nominees for the 14 Assembly segments in Chittoor district, including Shajahan Basha (Madanapalle), Dr Inayatulla Baig (Piler), SK Ramana Redddy (Punganur), MN Chandrasekhar Reddy (Tamaballapalli), were present.
