Jagan Blows Poll Bugle, Plenary Huge Success
Guntur: YSRCP president YS Jagan Mohan Reddy blew the poll bugle at the party plenary on Sunday. He announced padayatra for six months across AP beginning Idupulapaya. He also announced ₹50,000 to each farmer owning less than five acres of land. This will help 66 lakh farmers. The amount will be paid in four instalments. He also announced prohibition in phased manner.
Jagan said his government would double the old-age pension from one thousand to two thousand rupees. He also promised benefits to Dwarka groups.
The plenary was a huge success and Jagan’s speech was received with thunderous applause. The party workers were looking confident.
The two-day plenary of the YSRCP has concluded here on Sunday with the party chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy giving a clarion call to fight for the welfare of the people.
Earlier, Jagan Mohan Reddy was declared elected unanimously as national president of the party.
Jagan spoke of the qualities of head and heart of YS Rajasekhar Reddy. He recalled that while Chandrababu Naidu stabbed his father-in-law to grab power, YSR came to power by the blessings of the people. The power that comes through manipulation does not have legitimacy. But power that comes with the blessings of the people would entail responsibility.
“I have a strong desire to continue as chief minister for thirty years. I want to ensure that people will have my photo by the side of my father’s photo after I am gone,” said Jagan.
Jagan criticised the government for not honouring any of the promises made in election manifesto. He said the TDP had promised to set a stabilisation fund of ₹3,000 crore to take care of the farmers in case the prices of agriculture products fall. But the promise remains unfulfilled even today.
