Naidu will never come back to power

The impractical promises and nine-point
programme announced by TDP leader N Chandrababu Naidu stems out of frustration
as all options of getting nearer to the people have exhausted and his
padayatra, with an eye on coming to power, is a far cry going by the recent
surveys and the lukewarm response his trek is getting, YSR Congress has said.

“He is promising moon in course of his
padayatra. Yet people do not believe him as his promises are in total contrast
to what he has practiced while in power, be it the nine-hour
power,   waiver of loans or a new medicare scheme,” YSRCP spokesperson
Ambati Rambabu told reporters in Hyderabad on Monday.

Chandrababu Naidu’s dreams of returning to
power will not materialize as his use-and-throw policy has sunk in deep in the
people, his family members and party leaders as well. In order to cover up the
shortcomings, he has been on a promising spree during the padayatra, without
even considering the feasibility of the schemes he has been promising.

“Instead of explaining how he would implement
the schemes he has been promising, he is taking the hypothetical route saying
that he would implement when he becomes Chief Minister. This line of argument
clearly shows that the aim of his padayatra is for political gains.

Sharmila’s has been emulating her father YSR
in the padayatra which is aimed at meeting the people to know their problems
first hand and to expose the failures of the State Government and how it has
been diluted or destroyed YSR welfare schemes,” he said.

Sharmila has taken up the exercise in place of
YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, who is not in position to take up the padayatra and the
growing popularity has scared Chandarbabu Naidu further and he has stooped to a
new low and is whipping up religious and other issues attributing motives to
YSR family members, he said adding that the secular credentials of YSR family
need not be reestablished.

His frustration has been increasing with every
passing day of Sharmila’s padayatra and his incoherent speeches and promises
stand a testimony to it. “It is not true that everyone who undertakes padayatra
becomes a chief minister. Unlike Chandrababu Naidu, Sharmila is undertaking
padayatra in place of her brother and to know the pulse of the people and their
plight in the aftermath of YSR,” he said.

When asked about Sharmila’s padayatra in
Telangana region, he said: “In a free country anyone can carry out the
democratic process of meeting public anywhere. We don’t anticipate any trouble
during her padayatra in the Telangana region. Our stand on Telangana was
clearly told during the Plenary and we stick to it,” he said.
