Nandyala (Kurnool dist), Aug 10: Describing the by-poll as a precursor to the 2019 general elections, YSR Congress President YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has said that TDP has been blatantly using money and muscle power in the by-election by luring all sections of the people unmindful of the fact that none of the election promises of Chandrababu Naidu was fulfilled even three years after coming to power.
‘He is now repeating the same promises and is reiterating the same assurances which he did not fulfill during his three years in office. While the entire cabinet had hit the streets for this by-election and Chandrababu Naidu has been lavishly spending the ill-gotten wealth to lure voters, what I have to offer is the path shown by YSR whose welfare schemes had touched all sections of people,’ he told at a string of public meetings in the constituency here on Thursday.
‘What I have and Chandrababu Naidu lacks is credibility and values. He has been buying MLAs and has an indelible reputation of going back on his promises and a history of rampant corruption. What I have is the faith of people who are looking forward for YSR golden era and the Navaratnas I have promised as they believe that our family will always keep the promises given to people and we have history of honouring the election promises as YSR had done,’ he said amid cheers from the gathering.
While he has amassed wealth by corrupt practices, you the people and your faith is my biggest wealth as you carry the memories of the welfare schemes of YSR and have the immense faith in me that I will fulfill my assurances in the days to come, he said.
Chandrababu Naidu remembers sops like sewing machines and tractors only during elections while we have always believed in the welfare of farmers, women, students, youth and all sections of people who are badly affected by his election promises. He did not keep up a single poll promise.
YSR has shown how welfare schemes could be rolled out to benefit the various sections of people and the Navaratnas announced are a reflection of his ideals, he said.
Chandrababu Naidu has earlier assured that hospitals and other public utilities would be built in Kurnool and Nandyal but even the irrigation project of the region are neglected which shows the governance of TDP and if he comes to town again and gives tall promises no one will believe.
The vote in the by-election would be a vote against the corrupt governance of Chandrababu Naidu who failed to fulfill a single poll promise and will be a precursor to the 2019 general elections, he said.
