Jairam's promises irrelevant now

Hyderabad, March 4, 2014: Taking
strong objection to union minister Jairam Ramesh statements during his visit to
the state, YSR Congress has said his announcements mean nothing to Seemandhra
and they are in violation of the code of conduct.

“Jairam Ramesh, who was
elected from the State to the Rajya Sabha, has never bothered about the state
while there was a huge movement against the division. He did not speak out like
a representative of the region but helped the Bill to get through.

Now the union minister
comes to Seemandhra region and goes on a promises spree unmindful of the
election code in force. This is in violation of the code of conduct and we will
bring this issue to the Election Commission,” party spokesperson Jupudi
Prabhakar told reporters here on Tuesday.

He has been promising of
educational institutions, capital city coming up within three to four years and
about other such vital infrastructure. These were not included in the Bill. How
can the minister give assurances on something that is not in the bill and will
it be binding on the next government as Congress will not cross the 100 figure
mark in the next general elections, he asked.

Whether it is Digvijay
Singh or Jairam Ramesh, the Congress leaders are playing with the sentiments of
Seemandhra people and the Party will face a rout in the next elections.

Though Congress has 33 MPs,
some of them ministers, not a single state representative was present at the
function alongside Jairam Ramesh, which shows the popularity of the man and the

Jairam Ramesh who was
instrumental in passing the Bill undemocratically in just 23 minutes switching
off the television, now comes to town and boasts of sops which will cut no ice.
“Not a single issue which he has been speaking in the state is included in the
Bill and his speech will have no credibility,” he said.

People of Seemandhra will
not fall for his bait and will teach a fitting lesson to Congress, he said. It
was YS Jagan Mohan Reddy who has toured the entire nation seeking support to
keep the state united and he will emerge as the true leader of the region while
other parties will be washed away, he said.
