Hyderabad, June 3 : Coming down heavily on Congress government for diluting YSR schemes on one hand and hijacking some others, YSR Congress has said that the ruling party has been displaying its raw opportunism by maintaining double standards on the issue.
“PCC President stating that the welfare schemes YSR has implemented belong to Congress is an attempt to hijack the welfare schemes as in no other Congress ruled states were the Aarogaysri, fees reimbursement and Jalayagnam included in the Party manifesto,” Party MLA B Karunakar Reddy told reporters here on Monday.
YSR has promised 9 hour free power supply and 30 kg rice in the 2009 elections, the two schemes were not honoured by the Congress government. PCC President revealing that the welfare schemes were not diluted and YSR Congress has been trying to hijack their welfare schemes is ridiculous, he said.
Aarogyasri has been heavily run-down, severe restrictions are imposed on fees reimbursement and Jalayaganam has lost its course in the Congress governance. YSR Congress believes that the welfare schemes announced by YSR are being defaced and watered down. Hence it has included in its agenda.
We are assuring people that his welfare schemes will be implemented when we come to power and people are aware that the present Government has gone back on the YSR schemes, he said.
Congress has been passing very damaging comments with the State President, Botsa Satyanaryana calling names on the acronym of our party. It is a conviction to call any Party by its short form and Yuvajana Sharmika Rythu Congress also coincides with our leader’s name and is called YSR Congress, he said.
On PCC President’s interpretation of Supreme Court remarks on economic offenders, he said, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy is in jail as part of the conspiracy of Congress, TDP and CBI. Our leader is only an accused and is not proved guilty of the charges. Botsa Satyanarayana should learn what the meaning of an accused is, he said.
False allegation and cases were foisted on YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and he will come out clean from the legal court and people’s court as well, he said.
TDP leaders questioning the meetings of people by Jagan in the jail shows his ignorance of the jail manual. Though YSR family members have been targeted by Congress and TDP, they have sacrificed most of their share in the allotted timings to party workers, he said.
Asserting that YSRCP has no fear of exodus, he said, people from other parties are prepared to join as they could sense the mood of the people, which is in favour of YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s leadership. INN
