Chandrababu 4/20 fast pooh-poohed

Pooh-poohing Chandrababu Naidu’s one-day deeksha for Special Category Status (SCS) on his birthday April 20, YSR Congress President YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has said that where his morals were when our party MPs have resigned and sat on indefinite fast seeking the status.

Addressing a crowded public meeting as part of the Praja Sankalpa Yatra here on Tuesday, the Leader of Opposition said, ‘on the fourth month of the calendar and on 20th day in short which would be called 4/20 is Chandrababu Naidu’s birthday and he announced that he would fast on that day seeking SCS.

It clearly shows that it is only a farce and can least be called as 420 fasting as he distanced himself and his Party when the opportunity of a national attention was readily available. He had deliberately ignored the opportunity when he did not join hands during moving the no confidence motion and he did not agree for the resignation of his MPs so that if all the 25 MPs from the state quit en masse the impact would be thumping.

He did not react when our MPs submitted their resignations and went on an indefinite fast in Delhi fighting all odds.

Now on the fourth month and twentieth day, which sums up to 420, he wants to go on a day’s fast seeking SCS which is ridiculous, sacrilegious and absurd, he said.

Reiterating that Chandrababu Naidu has been heading a government soaked with deep corruption, he said that the King and his ministers are deeply involved in irregularities.   
The King and his ministers have a single point agenda of looting public money and they have left no stone unturned and left no avenue without exploiting it to the hilt.

They have issued GOs to benefit their favoured few contractors while the welfare schemes were done away with or punctured. On either side of the Kirshna River bed sand mafia has been thriving while farmers were left in the lurch and not a single crop has got MSP so far.

The Chief Minister has been staying in house which was constructed illegally and has been governing the state from such an edifice.

Chandrababu Naidu has become a middleman by buying farm produce at cheap rates and selling them in retail at exorbitant rates making profit for his family run Heritage Foods.

For the past four years we have seen how Chandrababu Naidu and his ministers, more so the one from this district, were actively involved in sharing the spoils. All his poll promises did not see light of the day.

Though he has promised to close down the belt shops, he did not act on that but has gone to the extent of giving permissions to set up mini beverages which shows his priority. The power charges have increased.

PDS has been wakened and only rice is available and they have been resorting to unfair practices.

He has gone back on all the poll promises and now he will come back promising moon. Use your discretion while giving the mandate he said adding that such a corrupt chief minister should be taught a lesson.
