Amma Hastam is only Maya Hastam

Hyderabad, May 1, 2013: Calling the recently
introduced Amma Hastam scheme by Kiran Kumar Reddy-led Congress Government as
Maya Hastam, YSR Congress honourary president Smt. Y.S. Vijayamma alleged Government
has totally neglected the public welfare and kept aside the welfare schemes.

Addressing a big gathering of people at Addagutta in
Secunderabad after participating in a Rachchabanda programme and listening to a
string of complaints from the locals, mostly women and the aged on Wednesday,
she said the Government is not aware of the suffering of the people.

As a leader, Dr. YSR knew the suffering of the
people and introduced several welfare schemes to mitigate their suffering. “He
not only introduced the welfare schemes but also implemented them successfully
as he was sincere,” she observed.

The present Government, unconcerned about the
people’s problems, has been imposing new charges and hiking all sorts of taxes
to fill its coffers while neglecting the people’s welfare, she said.

Smt. Vijayamma said the Amma Hastam scheme is only
a Maya Hastam as the Government introduced it aiming at votes in the next
elections. “The Government is not sincere in its approach and hence people have
already started complaining about it.”

“We are feeling the void created by the death of Dr
YSR as no one is there to listen to our woes and address our grievances,” the
locals complained to Smt. Vijayamma.

They told her life has become difficult for them
with inflated power bills and hiked prices of essential commodities. While some
people told her they were not getting pensions, some others complained bankers
are collecting Rs.30,000 interest on a loan of Rs. 1 lakh though the loans are
sanctioned under the 25 paisa interest scheme.

Smt. Vijayamma assured them that YSRCP would
address all their problems on a priority basis after coming to power.

Party leaders Sobha Nagi Reddy, Srisailam and
Vijaya Reddy also participated in the Rachchabanda.
