Eluru, May 14 : Continuing with the Rachchabanda interactions during her Maro Praja Prasthanam Padayatra, YS Sharmila reiterated that people would get back YSR’s golden era only when YSRCP chief Jagan Mohan Reddy became the Chief Minister.
Addressing a big gathering of people, mostly women, who swarmed her Rachchabanda programme at Chintalapudi of West Godavari district on Tuesday, she assured them that YSRCP government, when formed with Jagan Mohan Reddy as CM, would revive all the welfare schemes once successfully implemented by Dr YSR.
“While the women will get interest-free loans, widows and differently abled people will receive their pensions regularly. Students of poor families studying in school, intermediate and degree will get Rs.500, Rs.700 and Rs.1000 each every month respectively for pursuing their academic careers after YSRCP Government is formed,” Sharmila assured them after listening to their woes.
All the villages in the state will also be free of belt shops, she said, charging the Government with imposing an extra burden Rs.30,000 Cr on people through hiking the power charges alone in the last three years. Lambasting the Government for the neglect of the welfare of the people, Sharmila said Kiran Kumar Reddy Government has diluted the fee reimbursement scheme, bus pass subsidies of the poor students, housing and several other schemes successfully implemented by YSR. “Is it the welfare that you are talking about?’ she heckled at Kiran Kumar Reddy.
She said while farmers got free power for 7 to 9 hours a day during the YSR times, now the famers are not getting free power even for 3 hour a day. “Kiran is simply following the Naidu regime’s policies. Besides limiting the interest-free loan scheme to a useless propaganda, the Government has also subjected the students with an additional Rs.300 Cr by hiking their bus charges,” she said.
The Government policies have been driving people, especially farmers, to commit suicides as in times of Naidu. “You should teach a fitting lesson to both TDP and Congress in the next elections to usher in the Rajanna Rajyam,” she told the gathering. INN
