Chandrababu Leads The Most Corrupt State Government In the Country: YS Jagan

Kanigiri (Ongole): Chandrababu Naidu leads the most corrupt state government that has become synonymous with corruption, commissions and misuse of power, Leader of Opposition YS Jagan Mohan Reddy said.

Addressing a mammoth public meeting on the 96th day of the Praja Sankalpa Yatra, in the town on Saturday, he said every welfare programme introduced by the Telugu Desam government is aimed at filling the pockets of the TDP leader and cadre and not the state coffers. That is the reason, the state government is running on a deficit budget and does not have money for welfare of the people, YS Jagan said. Citing an instance, the YSRCP chief said several mandals in the districts that he has toured so far do not have access to clean drinking water. "However, liquor flows freely in all these districts so much so that people can order home delivery of alcohol," he pointed out.

Reeling out facts and figures of the past four years of TDP government, YS Jagan said power tariffs, petrol charges and RTC bus fares have been hiked more than three times. This placed untold financial burden on the common man, he said. Besides hike in prices of essential commodities, the state government failed to rescue farmers, students and DWCRA women from financial distress as it failed to fulfill its electoral promises, he added.

The YSRCP president also spoke about the plight of fluoride-affected people in 787 villages of Prakasham district. The state government neither provided dialysis units nor increased the number of doctors available in the region, he pointed out. In order to alleviate the suffering of the people from fluoride-related cases, it was the former chief minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy who brought the Ramathirtham water to Kanigiri, he said.

Concluding his address, YS Jagan said that the YSRCP government will ensure the welfare of every section of the society through its Navaratna programme. He called on the people to send their suggestions to improve the Navaratna scheme.
