Mahila Congress Leader Dares Naidu On Early Polls
Amaravati: Andhra Pradesh Mahila Congress president Sunkara Padmasri dared Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu to go for early polls in the State. Referring to the news about Naidu giving hints on early elections in the State, the Mahila Congress leader said that the TDP would be defeated in the next elections for its failures in fulfilling the promises made in the 2014 elections.
Padmasri said that the TDP was facing severe criticism from the people on issues like complete loan waiver to the farmers, self-help group women and weavers. She recalled the promise of Naidu to the farmers on the total loan waiver and said that the TDP chief had introduced scale of finance after coming to power denying loan waiver and going back on the promise. The weavers and the self-help group women were betrayed as their loans were not waived, she said.
The Mahila Congress chief also said that the TDP would get a beating from the people in the elections on issues like Polavaram Project and Amaravati city on which Naidu is set to go for elections. The TDP government was involved in heavy corruption in the Polavaram Project, she alleged and said that it was only for the commissions that the TDP government had taken up execution of the project though the Central government was to take up the project as per the AP Reorganisation Act. With Naidu not handing over the project to the Central government, the State had lost huge amount of Central funds, she said and regretted that the Central government was now giving the cost of the project as decided in 2014.
Padmasri came down heavily on Chandrababu Naidu and the BJP leadership for going back on the Special Category Status to the State. She said that both the TDP and the BJP have betrayed people on the Special Category Status and maintained that people would teach the two parties a fitting lesson in the next elections, whether they are advanced or held as per schedule.
