Jagan asks Naidu to implement his promises

Hyderabad, June 23,
2014: In his lengthy maiden speech in the AP assembly, Leader of the Opposition
Sri Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy asked TDP government to implement all its poll
promises including the farm loan waiver immediately.

Participating in the debate
on the motion of thanks to the speech of Governor Narasimhan on  Monday, Jagan Mohan Reddy
said the farmers in the state are deeply worried as the much expected farm loan
waiver has not yet come to them.

“The farmers in the state
believed that Chandrababu would announce loan waiver immediately after taking
oath as CM with a fond hope of launching their Khariff operations in time. But
with Naidu adopting delaying tactics through committees on the issue, the
farmers are now worried that they may be taken for a ride by Chandrababu Naidu who
may pass the buck on to the Centre for his failure to implement it,” Jagan
Mohan Reddy said in his spirited and impressive address.

While the handloom
weavers and DWCKRA women are also eagerly waiting for their loans to be waived,
14 lakh students are also looking forward for their fee reimbursement, he said.

Quoting from the
election manifesto of the TDP extensively and referring to the party’s poll
promises, ,Jagan Mohan Reddy asked the Government to implement the TDP promises
on hiked pensions for the differently abled, widows and the old,  monthly allowance of Rs.2000 to the jobless
and free education form KG to PG.

Jagan Mohan Reddy also reminded the Government that
people are suffering in the rural areas with a 15-hour power cut. “I call upon
you to set right the power situation immediately,” he asked the Government.

Recalling the TDP advertisements on job creations
that said ‘Jobs will come along with Naidu’,  Jagan Mohan Reddy said thousands of people are
on the verge of losing their jobs in the state let alone think of people
getting new jobs with Naidu's arrival as CM.

“Termination notices were served on 24,000 model
farmers, 9000 field assistants working in the NREGS, 3600 employees of the
Housing Construction Corporation and 700 employees working in Jalayagnam schemes,”
he said , taking a dig at Naidu’s promise on giving job to a person in each and
every household in the state.

YSR regime

Objecting to the part of the Governor’s speech that faulted
the YSR regime for the state’s poor economic health, Jagan Mohan Reddy said
economy fared better during the YSR regime than in Chandrababu regime.

While the growth rate was 5.72 per cent when
Chandrababu stepped down as CM, it went up to 8.23 during YSR regime as against
a national average of 7.56 per cent, he said quoting from the official records.
per the human index, AP fell down to 10th position from 9th position during 2001
when Naidu was at the helm,” he said adding that the gross per capita income
went up to Rs.89, 214 in YSR regime from Rs. 25, 321 in Naidu period. As the
debt ratio in the GDP came down to 22.4 per cent in YSR period from a whopping
32.4 per cent in Naidu régime, the number of ration card holders went up to 2
Cr 35 lakh from 1 Cr 20 lakh,” Jagan Mohan Reddy said to prove his point that
economy fared well during YSR regime than during Naidu period.

He strongly objected to TDP member Dhulipalla
Narendra referring to YSR earlier in his speech blaming him for the present state
of affairs.
