Dharmana : Jagan Vox Populi

Aug 21, 2014:  Strongly objecting to the remarks of Andhra Pradesh Chief
Minister, YSR Congress has affirmed that YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has been the
voice of the people in the Assembly and TDP government has been shirking from
responsibility to downplay its inefficiency.  

“It is
unbecoming of a Chief Minster for N Chandrababu Naidu to pass irresponsible
remarks like the main opposition has inexperienced persons who have no grasp on
the budget while in reality Naidu was only trying to shield his inefficiency in
keeping up his poll promises by not providing enough funds in the budget to
cater to the needs of loan waiver and other core issues,” Party general
secretary Dharmana Prasada Rao told reporters here on Thursday.  

In a
parliamentary democracy it is the main opposition party that speaks on behalf
of the people and the Chief Minister stating that YSCP members are not aware of
the budget is derogatory. “We have the right to question and our leader YS
Jagan Mohan Reddy has posed very pointed questions which have no answers from
the treasury benches resulting in Chandarababu Naidu taking refuge in irrelevant
and irresponsible talk.  

people voted TDP to power believing that you would waive agriculture and DWACRA
loans and if a provision for such waiver is not reflected in the budget it is
the right of the Opposition Party to catch the government by the scurf of its
neck and question.  

of answering the questions, if the Chief Minister opts to pass remarks that the
people in the opposition are not aware of the budget, it is raw escapism,” he
said adding that the same strategy was applied during the debate on the motion
of thanks to the Governor’s address.  

the state budget as jugglery of figures which has no proper basis, he said, it
has no aim or any goal. The mention of grant-in-aid of Rs 28,000 crores from
the Centre must be imaginary as such an assurance was not reflected in the
Union Budget which was recently passed. No state has so far received such a
huge amount as grant-in-aid and the figure is only to deceive the people and is

Chandrababu Naidu has time and again said that we need Rs 4 lakh core for
building a new capital there is no mention of it and the TDP leaders are divided
lot on this and many other issues and have been issuing contradictory
statements. While some say that the State economy is rosy others say it is in
dire straits.

calls the budget disappointing

YSR Congress Party president Sri Y.S. Jagan Mohan
Reddy described the budget as most disappointing and hopeless.

Reacting to the budget presented by Finance Minister
Yanamala Rama Krishnudu, Jagan Mohan Reddy said there was no allotment for
waiver of farm loans, DWAKRA loans and weavers’ loans.

“The budget has evaporated the hopes of lakhs of farmers,
DWAKRA women and handloom weavers,” he said in an informal chit-chart with media
persons in the assembly lobbies soon after the budget was introduced.
