Kiran claiming credit for what YSR did

Hyderabad, Nov 20, 2012:
YSR Congress party on Tuesday described as unfortunate the stance of the Chief
Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy and other Congress leaders in not mentioning the
name of YSR and his contribution during the inauguration of the Handri-Neeva

YSRCP MLA G. Srikanth
Reddy told media persons here that Kiran Kumar and Congress leaders mentioned
the name of even NTR but failed to remember the contribution of YSR towards the

“NTR initiated the
Handri-Neeva project but YSR spent Rs.3600 Cr and completed 90 per cent of the
works on it. The present Government wants to take credit for the entire project
by taking up some nominal works and releasing water for the name sake,” he

“Is the Government not
ashamed for forgetting to mention YSR and his contribution for the project?”
Srikanth Reddy said and asked Kiran Kumar and PCC chief Botcha Satyanarayana to
introspect over their stance.

Srikanth Reddy said the
Government failed to complete any of the major projects initiated by YSR in the
last three years. “Nothing has gone ahead on Pulichintala, Polavaram and
Pranahita-Chevella projects. But on Handri-Neeva, the Government has been
indulging in self-aggrandizement by taking up nominal works of the project
which was completed up to 90 per cent during YSR period,” he observed.

After coming to power,
Srikanth Reddy said, YSRCP would take the initiative and focus on the 86
projects which were part of the Jalayagnam initiated by YSR.

Speaking about TDP
chief Chandrababu Naidu’s promises to the farmers during his Padayatra,
Srikanth Reddy said people are laughing at his assurances and promises as Naidu
is known for changing his stances frequently.
