I Shall Quit Politics If Proven Wrong

  • Botsa's open challenge to TDP
  • Challenge to Venkaiah Naidu to be felicitated amidst the public
  • People's lack of respect to politicians due to leaders like Venkaiah and Babu
  • Polavaram to benefit Babu with commissions and contracts
  • YSRCP leader Botsa Satyanarayana speaks

Visakhapatnam: YSRCP's senior leader Botsa Satyanarayana challenged the central and the state Governments that he would quit politics if it was proven to have been mentioned in the AP reorganisation act that 70% of Polavaram national project's expenditure would be born by the centre and 30% by the state. Mentioning that Chandrababu's words and deeds were confusing, he slammed Chandrababu and Venkaiah Naidu during his speech on the occasion of Chaitanya Patham programme held at Visakhapatnam. He remarked that people were taking all politicians easy just because of the double entendre exhibited by leaders like Chandrababu and Venkaiah Naidu.

Botsa slammed the double entendre of a senior leader like Venkaiah Naidu. He criticised the way the latter had said that he had backed off when he realised special category status would not be given. Botsa questioned why Venkaiah could not convince the centre into sanctioning special category status. He reminded how Venkaiah had mentioned special status was a wonder drug while releasing BJP's manifesto in Visakhapatnam. He also added that Venkaiah had announced at the public meeting held at Nellore that he would take the responsibility of getting special category status for the state for 10 years and had declared at Tirupati that they would not sleep unless the status was achieved. He commented that half of industries deserved by AP had gone to Himachal Pradesh as it got special status, leading to the improvement of employment sector.
What has AP specially been given?
Botsa challenged Venkaiah Naidu to be felicitated amidst the people and not secretly amidst the police. He questioned why a national project like Polavaram was handed over to the state Government. Informing that the project was the responsibility of the centre according to reorganisation act, he commented that Chandrababu had taken up the responsibility only to fill his pockets through commissions and contracts. He questioned what objection Chandrababu had if the centre took up the project's construction. Mentioning Chandrababu and Venkaiah Naidu's boasting about AP's getting educational institutions, he questioned what the state was getting other than what was mentioned in the reorganisation act.
Botsa mentioned that the Governments were bluffing the people with numbers like Rs.1.60 crore and Rs.2.60 crore. He demanded to know if the Government was ready to sanction the promised railway zone for Visakhapatnam or not. He condemned Chandrababu for conspiring to take the railway zone to Vijayawada, deceiving the people of Visakhapatnam. He criticised Chandrababu for trying to develop only Vijayawada.
