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.
