Naidu’s extravagance uncalled for : Jagan

YSRCP president Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy at a review meeting of the poll results in five 

                       north coastal Andhra districts at Rajahmundry on Saturday.

(East Godavari dist), June 7, 2014: Denouncing the pomp and show associated with the
coronation of N Chandrababu Naidu, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has said he does not
want to be part of the extravagant swearing-in ceremony when the state is in
deep crisis and affirmed that the people have given YSRCP the mandate to mount
pressure on TDP government to fulfill its poll promises. 

to reporters here on Saturday after the review meeting of five north coastal
Andhra districts he said: “On one hand Naidu has been seeking donations from
the people to build the capital city and on the other an estimated Rs 30 crores
is being lavishly spent on the swearing-in ceremony which at this point of time
is not wise and I leave it to their wisdom but I personally will not ratify
such a wasteful expenditure.  

A section
of media has been trying to project that Naidu has limited resources and empty
coffers suggesting that loan waiver may be difficult but people have given us
mandate to question TDP governance and the steps being taken to fulfill waiver
of agriculture loans.  

As things
stand, his friendly media is giving a grim picture of the ex-chequer and the
loan waiver signature has little or no meaning unless the date from which the
scheme will be implemented is announced before hand.”  

the entire exercise as a drama as there is no guarantee that the loans will be
waived, he said YSRCP will mount pressure on TDP government to fulfill its
promise to the farmers.  

On the
review meetings, he said : This is an exercise carried out to anayalise in
detail the shortcomings in some of the constituencies we lost which will enable
us to take corrective measure in the coming days. A false propaganda has been
unleashed that we are reviewing as to why we were defeated in the elections.  

“It is
not that we were in power and lost now and are searching for reasons. We
started off with one MP and one MLA went up to two MPs and 20 MLAs and we now
we have eight MPs and 67 MLAs and Seemandhra and nine MPs and 70 MLAs as a

Out graph
has been on the rise. What we have reviewed is if there is any lacuna in
organizational matters so that corrective measures will be taken in the days to
come. We have taken the feedback from the cadre which will be the basis for
strengthening the party structure, he said.
