Jagan Welcomes MLC Elections Results, Dares Naidu To Face Fresh Polls
Amaravati: YSR Congress president Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy on Wednesday welcomed the results of the Teachers and Graduates constituencies elections. He said that the results of the three graduates and two teachers constituency elections were in favour of the Opposition and a slap on the face of the ruling party.
Jagan Mohan Reddy said that the YSR Congress and the candidates supported by it have won the elections. “We have won in four seats. The graduates and the teachers representing six districts have voted for us which is against the ruling party. Even in the one seat that we have lost, our voting was good. Chandrababu Naidu had terrorised the elected representatives of the local bodies and had purchased several of them to win the local body MLC seats. But, he could not do anything in the teachers and graduates seats,” Jagan Mohan Reddy said in a chit chat with the journalists in the Assembly lobbies.
He reiterated his demand for holding elections for the MLAs who have defected to the ruling party. He claimed that people were with the Opposition and this round of teachers and graduates elections have proved it.
Jagan Mohan Reddy took strong exception to the way the Assembly proceedings are conducted. He said that the ruling party was not giving opportunities for the Opposition to speak in the House. He accused the Chief Minister of misleading the House and the people by presenting false information on the economic growth, irrigation projects and prevailing drought conditions in the Rayalaseema districts.
Referring to Chandrababu Naidu’s speech in the Assembly, Jagan Mohan Reddy alleged that the Opposition was not given time to speak on Chandrababu Naidu’s speech. “They have not allowed us to speak even on Point of Order,” he alleged.
