Addressing the public about the Polavaram project, YSRCP chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy said that in the last four years, only the foundation walls were built. But, the TDP leaders are claiming to have completed. Recently, Chandrababu took his grandson to the project, he added.
"The project is a centre of corruption. Finance Minister Yanamala Ramakrishnudu's relative is indulging in taking up the contract works in Polavaram project," he said.
Could Chandrababu build the Amaravati capital city in the last four years?
YS Jagan pointed that the women's self-help groups were cheated and were not given loan waivers. During Rajanna Rajyam, farmers availed interest-free loans from the banks, but, in Chandrababu's rule, the farmers' loans are completely ignored, he said.
Criticizing Chandrababu for not providing Minimum Support Price (MSP) for crops, YS Jagan said that the TDP government had completely failed to deliver on its 2014 election promises.
In the four years of Chandrababu's rule, not even a single crop was given MSP, he said. The reason lies in the fact that Chandrababu is the leader of the brokers in the market. Chandrababu's Heritage company purchases crops for a lower price from farmers and sells its products for 3-4 times the price, the YSRCP leader said.
The AP CM promised to build a house for every poor man in the state-- 1.72 crore lakh—"how many houses has he built till date?" he asked.
In Chandrababu's rule, the electricity charges, fuel prices, RTC bus charges, house tax , school fees, every single item of expenditure has skyrocketed, he observed.
Speaking about the fees reimbursement scheme introduced by Dr YSR, he said that the Chandrababu government completely diluted the scheme. "The government is paying just Rs 35,000 but the college fees totals to Rs 1 lakh. How can the poor afford such high fees?" he asked.
The YSRCP Chief told the mammoth gathering that Chandrababu had promised to give Rs 2,000 to every household without employment. It had been 48 months since he had come to power yet no household had got that amount. So the government owed Rs Rs 96,000 to every household in the state, he said and called upon all the unemployed youth to question the TDP chief on this pointedly.
