Cong terrified of Jagan’s popularity: Vijayamma

 YSR Congress party
honourary president Smt. Y.S. Vijayamma said the Congress Government, which has
been hand in glove with the TDP, jailed her son and party president Y.S. Jagan
Mohan Reddy as it feared that Jagan might influence the people against the
Congress with his popularity and not the witnesses in his case.

“Even after filing
cases against him, Jagan had been with you for ten months agitating on various
issues but CBI arrested him in the name of investigation ahead of by-elections
just for the fear that he may influence you against the Congress,” she told people
at a public meeting at Sri Krishna Devaraya University as part of Sharmila’s
Maro Praja Prasthanam on Sunday.

“Their actual fear was
not that he might influence witnesses in the cases filed against him but they
had worried he might influence you against the Government,” she observed.

She reiterated the
party’s stand of supporting a no- confidence motion against the Congress Government
and challenged the TDP president Chandrababu Naidu to introduce it in the
assembly. Vijayamma said Naidu has the capacity to topple the anti-people Kiran
Kumar Reddy Government but has instead chosen to conduct Padayatra only to
protect it.

“The Government has
been taking anti-people decisions but Naidu is not doing anything to throw it
away,” Vijayamma said, adding this only shows Naidu has been in cahoots with
the Congress Government.

Vijayamma said the poor
and middle class people are being burdened with more and more taxes daily and
the growing power tariff and RTC bus charges. “Why is he hesitating to pull
down the rug from under the feet of the Government despite his having a
capacity to do it?” she questioned.
