Youth Congress to hold peoples ballot on TDP poll promises
Amaravati: The Andhra Pradesh Youth Congress would hold peoples ballot on the election promises that Telugu Desam Party (TDP) president and Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu made during the 2014 election, said All India Youth Congress general secretary Abraham Roy Mani and secretary V Varaprasad.
Speaking to media persons after the AP Youth Congress executive meeting at Andhra Rathna Bhavan, the YC leaders criticized the Chief Minister for his failure to fulfill the election promises. The leaders said that Chandrababu Naidu had promised one job for every family and wanted to know how many jobs were provided to the youth in the State in the last three years. They also recalled the TDP promise of monthly stipend for the unemployed youth and regretted that not a single rupee was paid to a single unemployed youth in the State.
The YC leaders said that the AP youth had high hopes on the special category status that would bring more investments to the State resulting in employment creation. However, they alleged that Chandrababu Naidu had compromised for the special package and dumped the special category status. They accused the Chief Minister of making huge commissions out of the special package at the cost of the future of the youth. “The youth of this State had high hopes of special category status. A huge number of industries were expected and there were hopes of a large of number of jobs to be created. But, by compromising for the package, the Chief Minister had dashed the hopes of the youth,” the YC leaders alleged.
Referring to the Chief Minister’s claims on building a Golden Amaravati, the YC leaders ridiculed the claims and said that Chandrababu Naidu would not even build a copper Amaravati. They said that the YC would take up extensive campaign on the failures of the TDP rule in the last three years. The YC would conduct peoples ballot on the promises like job for youth, loan waiver for the farmers, women and weavers. The Youth Congress would also lead a campaign against the lies of Chandrababu Naidu and expose his intentions in compromising with the BJP government for the special package.
The Youth Congress leaders reiterated that they would continue to fight for the special category status which would bring more industries to the State and create employment opportunities.
AP Youth Congress leaders Madan Mohan, K Amarnath and others were present.
