Jagan flays BJP, TDP, urges people to vote for YSRCP

Tiruvuru (Andhra Pradesh), May 2: Coming down heavily on the BJP-TDP combine, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy ppealed to the people to vote for YSRCP fan symbol that would change the course of the state.

“Though BJP-TDP combo was in power between 1999 and 2004 it could not bring in any development to the state, unabashedly leaders of the two parties have been in Seemandhra doling out promises galore which reflects their politics of opportunism,” said Jagan.

“Within hours of the completion of elections in Telangana, leaders of both the parties came to Seemandhra with tall promises and weaving a Utopian dream to the people. It was the same set of people that has voted in the Parliament alongside of Sonia Gandhi-led Congress to divide the state,” he said.

“It is not just the voting pattern. Sushma Swaraj toured Telangana seeking votes to BJP for helping in creating the separate state and has put forward the Mata Mousi theory demanding her share of the booty. Chandrababu Naidu, BJP and Congress are responsible for dividing the state. TDP has given a letter of consent and its floor leader along with BJP and Congress had voted for the bifurcation bill,” he added.

He further said that the same set of people accused him of being responsible for the division.

“The same set of people now come to Seemandhra and tells people that YS Jagan Mohan Reddy is responsible for the division. Such opportunist and immoral politics should be rejected outright. The BJP-TDP leaders who have showered promises today never spoke of Polavaram, Pulichinthala, Galeru-Nagari, Hundri -Neva and other projects while they were in power from 1999 to 2004,” said Jagan.

“The extent of coastline did not increase from 1,000 km since 1999 but Modi speaking of it now shows his real motive as the group of persons who toured the region during the past two days is interested only in votes and seats but not real-time development. He speaks of taking the gas to the entire nation but never spoke whether how much gas our state will get,” he said.

“These people do not love us. They do not have affection towards us, they need only votes and seats. This is the time for you to think before you vote and keep in mind the welfare activities YSR has taken up. Give us 25 MP seats and we will get all that we need from the Centre and ensure that the Prime Minister will care for our needs and aspirations, “he added.

He also said that Chandrababu Naidu was making false promises to people.

“Chandrababu Naidu has been speaking of waivers to a tune of 1.5 lakh crores which is not possible. He is also promising one job per family which he cannot implement as there are 3.5 crore families. He has the record of closing down profit making PSUs and throwing people out of jobs,” Jagan said.

“He has been speaking many more such impossible promises as he lacks credibility. I cannot do that as I have to be in public life for 30 years while this would be the last election of Chandrbabu Naidu. I have been promising 11 things, which include signature on five files. They will be done immediately after I assume office and I have inherited the quality of not going back on my word from YSR,” he said.

“The eleven promises will change the course of the state and I appeal you to vote for YSRCP candidates in this battle between credibility and honesty on one side and opportunism and conspiracy on the other,” he added. (ANI)
