Reiterating its stand that TDP government has no reason to hold Jana Chaitanya Yatra as it has not fulfilled any of the poll promises in toto, YSR Congress has demanded that an ex-gratia of Rs 20 lakh should be paid to the kin of those who died in the hooch tragedy at Vijayawada.
“Our Party President YS Jagan Mohan Reddy had demanded a thorough probe into the incident and the Government should pay ex-gratia to the kin of the deceased,” party MLA G Srikanth Reddy told reporters here on Monday.
The TDP Yatra has become a party affair as the events were painted yellow and self boasting laced to tall talk though not a single promise was fulfilled and there was not people’s involvement in the programmes. Pensions were cut down, fees reimbursement took a beating and welfare was scaled down under the stewardship of Chandrababu Naidu.
Though the Government promised jobs to all but the Service Commission, which is supposed to recruit people, has been sending signals of no vacancy defeating the very purpose of its existence, he said.
Chandrababu Naidu, who is on a tour of North Coastal Andhra, never speaks his mind out on the bauxite policy. He has double standards on the issue. ‘He seems to be in a hurry to vacate Hyderabad city and has asked the administration to move to the new capital by June 1. As coincidence would have it, it was in June last year that the cash for vote case came to light and Chandrababu Naidu’s voice was recorded,’ he said.
The ploy of shifting is to keep the real estate prices high in the capital region and such statements of shifting the capital has no meaning unless proper infrastructure is developed, he said. ‘We demand that the assembly sessions to be long enough to discuss issues of public interest and not for a brief period,’ he said.
