Hyderabad, Apr. 13: YSRCP president Y.S.Jagan Mohan Reddy released the party’s election manifesto on Sunday.
“We have included in the manifesto the issues which we have been saying for the last four years,” said Reddy.
He said that the GDP was much more during the time of YSR than during the time of Chandrababu and added that the rule of the late Dr.Y.S.Rajasekhar Reddy was like a golden age.
“GDP during Chandrababu rule was 5.7% only. But, the figure was 9.6 % during the rule of YSR and the figure went down to 6.8 % after YSR died. Even the agricultural growth rate during Chandrababu rule was 3.84 % and the figure went up to 6.14 % during the rule of YSR. But, the figure went down to 2.56% after the great leader died in 2009,” said Reddy.
“Over 65 public sector undertakings were closed down during his time and about 26,000 persons had lost their jobs. The total number of IT employees during the rule of Chandrababu was 81,000 only. But, the figure went up to 2.35 lakhs during the rule of late YSR,” he said. (ANI)
