Jagan Hits Hard At Naidu On Betraying People
Amaravati: Leader of Opposition and YSR Congress President Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy launched his two-day protest at Guntur on Monday. Taking a dig at the Telugu Desam Government in the State for neglecting the farmers, he held the government responsible for the increasing suicides of the farmers.
The steep fall in the prices of the chillies, turmeric, black gram, red gram and mangoes in the State was due to the failure of the government, he said. He also took Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu to target for not implementing the promise of price stabilisation fund.
Jagan Mohan Reddy came down heavily on Chandrababu Naidu for going back on all his promises. He said that Naidu had promised total loan waiver for the farmers, self-help group women and the weavers during the election, and had promised to create price stabilisation fund with Rs 5,000 crore.
However, after coming to power the promises were either ignored or implemented partially leading to major crisis in the State, he said.
Jagan accused Naidu of pushing the State into crisis on all fronts with farmers, weavers and self-help group women committing suicides.
The YSR Congress leader sought to draw attention of the people toward the struggles of the farmers at the market yards where they were forced to destroy their crops in distress. He wondered why the ruling TDP leaders, including the ministers have failed to take a look at the farmers waiting in the market yards.
Jagan said that the ministers were visiting the market yards only after he visited the yard in Guntur on April 24. He alleged that the TDP leaders and the government of working only to counter him and not to help the people.
Jagan Mohan Reddy while stating that the TDP Government would not extend any help to the farmers or people wanted them to wait for the next elections. He said that the YSR Congress would come to power in the State and address all their problems.
Jagan also wanted people to start counting the days of the TDP misrule in the State.
