75% local reservation will be implemented in AP : YS Jagan

Leader of Opposition in Andhra Pradesh Assembly YS Jagan Mohan Reddy addressed a mammoth public gathering at Chilakapalem in Etcherla mandal of Srikakulam district today.
Launching a scathing attack at AP chief minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu, YS Jagan said the TDP government could not complete the remaining 10% works of the Thotapalli project in the region, 90% of which was completed during late Chief Minister Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy's rule. The project, which was conceived with a vision to irrigate 1,65,000 acres, is yet to provide waters to 85,000 acres.
Stating that the Narayanapuram anacut was in dire straits, he said the Chandrababu government could not complete the remaining works in the Madduvalasa project - phase II, for which Dr YSR had already spent Rs 28 crore out of the Rs 48 crore budget. Around 5,000 acres of land would have been irrigated had the project been completed, he said.
YS Jagan said seven industries in the Paidi Bhimavaram industrial corridor were closed down in Chandrababu's rule. Not even 20% of the jobs are filled by locals in the corridor. If YSRCP comes to power, 75% local reservation would be implemented in the State, he promised.
"The Amadalavalasa handloom weavers industry is in distress. Chandrababu's governemnt is not supplying wool for subsidy rates. The APCO debts worth Rs 1,200 crore are yet to be paid by government. In Rajem and Penubaka, the weavers are in severe losses," he mentioned.
