TDP government is riddled with corruption and commissions: YS Jagan

Podili: Andhra Pradesh chief minister Chandrababu Naidu lacks leadership qualities as he does not have commitment towards the people, constantly misleads the people and consequently cannot be trusted, Leader of Opposition YS Jagan Mohan Reddy said.
The YSRCP president was speaking at a public meeting here on Monday on the 98th day of the Praja Sankalpa Yatra. "A chief minister should have certain leadership qualities and must implement the promises he has made to the people. However, the constant lying and misleading the people on the issue of Special Category Status (SCS) by the CM indicates that he cannot be trusted. Apparently, he does not have the commitment towards the welfare of the people," he said.
He is now speaking about special package for the state when it was SCS that was promised at the time of bifurcation in the Parliament, YS Jagan told the huge gathering of people. "The CM's lies are further exposed when he spoke about investments to the state. At a meeting in Vizag, he claimed Rs 4.39 lakh crore investments in the state resulting in lakhs of jobs. He also gave absolutely misleading numbers to the Governor when he mentioned that Rs 15 lakh crore investments were made in AP in the last financial year. However, the Central government reports state that AP received less than Rs 5,000 crore investments. If Chandrababu's claims are true, then where are the jobs that follow the investments," the YSRCP chief asked the massive crowd.
Speaking on the issue of drought conditions in Markapuram, he said the state government failed to provide input subsidy to the farmers, the Veligonda project is in shambles and hence no scope of providing water to the ryots. The kharif and rabi crops have failed due to scanty rainfall and the chief minister fails to announce any relief measures for the farmers, YS Jagan said.
The YSRCP chief called on the people to vote out the TDP government that is riddled with corruption, commissions and promises that were never fulfilled in the past four years.

YS Jagan will complete Veligonda project In A year

Prakasam: YSR Congress Party President YS Jagan Mohan Reddy will complete the long pending Veligonda project in one year time once he becomes Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, party senior leader and MP YS Subba Reddy said.
The project will fetch irrigation and drinking water needs in  Markapuram and Kondepi assembly constituencies in Prakasham district, he said while participating in a public meeting conducted as part of  Praja Sankalpa Yatra by YS Jagan in the Podili town.  
Chandrababu Naidu neglected the project for the last  four years.  During the YSR regime, the project workers were completed on 12 km stretch. The project  will also address florosis problem in the backward district.

Reiterating that YS Jagan will bring back Rajanna Rajyam in Andhra Pradesh,  YV Subba Reddy said the party will fight for special status till the centre consented its demand.  The party will fight insides and outside the Parliament on special status issue.The YSR Congress leader came down heavily on CM for not taking up the special status issue seriously with the centre.

Women narrated their problems to YS Jagan

P.C. Palli, Prakasam district: Leader of Opposition in Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy listened to the complaints of women of this arid area in backward Prakasam district, who narrated their problems to him. They told him that they were forced to buy a potful of water for Rs. 10 to quench their thirst in view of the widespread scarcity in the region. Further, they said the water which was supplied to the people of region was not potable. They simply could not drink what was supplied by the civic authorities and hence were compelled to buy water at such exorbitant costs. They requested the YSRCP Chief to ensure that pure drinking water was supplied to the residents of the area.

Irmiya of Veera Obunapalli was among those who met the YSRCP chief to narrate their problems. He lamented that the TDP government had not filled up backlog vacancies. The disabled were denied their rightful quota in employment and the few jobs that were given were being 'sold' by the Telugu Desam leaders, he said.

People of Billikurava mandal who have been taking part in the Praja Sankalpa Yatra for the past three days, expressed the view that the most deprived sections of society wished to see YS Jagan Mohan Reddy as the chief minister of the state, this time around.

YS Jagan's assurance to Mala Madiga Communities

Leader of Opposition in Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy said that his party would establish separate corporations for the welfare of Mala and Madiga communities.
The YSRCP would ensure their social and economic upliftment, he said. During the course of the 97th day of his mass outreach program, Praja Sankalpa Yatra which moved through Kanigiri and Markapuram constituencies today, YS Jagan compared the Mala and Madiga communities to his two eyes. Each community was equally dear to him and he would bend every sinew to ensure justice to them, he asserted. The YSRCP Chief added that he shared a special kinship with them and empathised with their condition. During lunch break, he met a delegation of SC leaders led by Kommuri Kanaka Rao Madiga, who had been fighting for the establishment of a Madiga Corporation. The delegation submitted a petition to the leader of opposition listing out their demands and sought his help.
Kanaka Rao Madiga requested YS Jagan to help them fight for their due place in society and in the alleviation of their socio-economic and educational status. He recalled the recommendations made by the Justice Usha Mehra Commission in this regard. He expressed anguish that funds earmarked for the SC community were not reaching Madigas. The TDP government had ignored their repeated pleas and a demand for a separate Corporation for the Madiga community which would help them overcome social, and educational backwardness and caste discrimination. YS Jagan assured them of all help in fighting against caste discrimination and reiterated the point that he was committed to setting up a separate Corporation for the Madiga community which would be done once YSRCP comes to power. He pointed out that relationships in villages were defined by fond familial terms and expressions such as pinni (aunt), chinnanna (uncle), anna (older brother) atha (aunt) etc.
The YSRCP chief observed that classification of SC communities came under the purview of the Union government and unlike Chandrababu Naidu, he cannot cheat people by giving them false assurances and commitments. However he requested members of the delegation to undertake a deeper study and meet him again on the classification of SC sub-castes. On the subject of reservations of SCs, the YSRCP chief pointed out that it was implemented differently in the North and South and a thorough background study was needed in this regard, as well. The YSRCP Chief assured the delegation of his support to their cause and in leaving no stone unturned to fight for the welfare of the SC community.

YSRCP to initiate no-confidence motion against Centre on March 21

Main opposition party YSRCP has announced that it would move no-confidence motion against the union government on March 21 in the parliament. 

YSRCP MP YV Subba Reddy would submit a notice to Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan under the Clause 184 to move the motion of no confidence. 

The opposition party has been intensifying protest with a slogan 'Don't betray us with Special Package, Special Status is our right'. 

As part of the protest, the YSRCP has already carved out a strategy to stage protests in the national capital in the coming months of March and April. The YSRCP MPs would resign from their posts on April 6 if there is no announcement from the Centre on Special Status. 

Speaking to media persons, spokesperson Ambati Rayudu said that YSRCP President YS Jagan Mohan Reddy had only accepted the challenge made by Jana Sena founder Pawan Kalyan to move the motion.

Pawan's statements on no confidence motion are childish

The YSRCP, on Tuesday, slammed Pawan Kalyan for his statements on the proposed no confidence to be introduced in the Parliament on March 21.
Addressing the media, YSRCP spokesman Ambati Rambabu  said that the Pawan's statements on the no confidence motion are childish and out of tune with reality. "It was the actor who first mooted the idea of no confidence motion. YSRCP president YS Jagan Mohan Reddy implemented that idea through a concrete plan of action," he clarified. However, the statements issued by Pawan are wrong where he stated that YS Jagan threw a challenge at him regarding the special status, Rambabu said. "While accepting the suggestion by Pawan, the YSRCP chief only said that the actor should also take his partner TDP into confidence on the issue.
Irrespective of the Jana Sena leader's comments, the YSRCP will go ahead with protests at the Parliament on March 5. This will be followed by moving a no confidence motion in the Parliament on March 21," he said. He also slammed CM Chandrababu's statement that the no confidence motion will not serve any purpose. "Pawan Kalyan should speak to Chandrababu on a united fight to implement the no confidence motion. It is common knowledge that 50 MPs should sign the motion for it to be debated in the Parliament. Failure to garner the support of the 50 MPs will result in the motion not being taken up for debate. Therefore, the YSRCP calls for a united fight by all political parties against the injustice done to Andhra Pradesh in the Union Budget 2018," Ambati Rambabu said.
The YSRCP spokesman also slammed Pawan Kalyan's statement that he will go to Delhi and conince all parties to support the no confidence motion. "Pawan Kalyan cannot convince his ally Chandrababu Naidu and therefore his plans to convince national parties is out of place," he said
