BJP-TDP combo failed to address issues

Kaikaluru (Krishna dist)
May 2, 2014: Calling the bluff of BJP-TDP promise of development, YS Jagan Mohan
Reddy has said the same combination during its 1999-2004 term has done nothing
to the state and it has been playing opportunist politics by running with the
hare in Telangana and hunting with the hound in Seemandhra.

“Just a few hours of after
the polling was completed in Telangana region, the leaders went to Tirupati
blowing their own trumpet of development, which was not there, and started
singing the Seemandhra tune even as TDP and BJP have voted in for the Bill to
divide the state and both parties have sought their pound of flesh in Telangana

On the Seemandhra dais they
began drumming up the Semmandraha song with Modi and others chanting the
development mantra without naming what the NDA had done during 1999-2004 while
it was in power,” he said in a public meeting here on Thursday.

“This is raw opportunism.
Modi was speaking of development and about smaller states. The NDA has carved
our three smaller states Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand and Uttaranchal with Raipur,
Ranchi and Dehradun as capital cities. Till today these cities do not have an
international airport and it is sad that the BJP-TDP leaders speak of
development. The NDA government has said that it will give Rs 10,000 crores for
developing Raipur as a capital city but has given just Rs 400 crores. The three
cities do not have any super specialty hospitals, he said.

Modi speaks of a 1,000 km
coast line of Seemandhra now, the extent was the same even in 1999-2004 but
there was no focus on it then. He tells of gas and petroleum that can be
extracted from our cost but never says how much of it will be given to our

This is only election talk
aimed at winning some votes and seats.

Chandrababu Niadu and BJP
leaders have toured the Telangana region claiming responsibility for dividing
the state and when in Seemandhra they are blaming YSRCP for the division which
is irrational. Naidu, of all the people, started speaking on corruption. When
he began his political career, he only had two acres of land. Now he is a
multi-millionaire and his family-run Heritage Foods has a wide network.
 He has been on a Save Congress mission all the time only to save his skin
as he is facing severe corruption charges in Emaar and IMG cases.

While CBI came after me as
I left Congress, it has shielded Naidu on some pretext or the other. The law
which was applied to Jagan Mohan Reddy was not applied to Chandrababau Naidu.
“These divisive forces and opportunists should be defeated and I appeal you to
vote for YSRCP fan symbol and win all 25 MPs seats to see all round development
and welfare,” he said.
