Nandyal by-poll should be a benchmark

Nandyal, Aug 17: Reiterating that
Chandrababu Naidu lacks credibility as he never fulfills the promises he made,
YSR Congress President YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has appealed to the people to vote
for value based politics and set the by-poll as a benchmark for value-based

 Addressing a road show here on
Thursday as part of his electioneering he said, ‘Credibility is one
quality which every leader should have and those who go back on the election
promises should be summarily rejected by the ballot.

 Chandrababu Naidu has amassed Rs 3.50
lakh crores through corrupt means and is trying to buy the votes distributing
notes for votes. His role in the cash for vote case in the neighbouring
Telangana state is fresh in the memory of the people,’ he said.

 This is an election that will pave way
for a healthy trend in politics and I appeal to the voters to give their nod to
a candidate and party that has credibility and will stand by their side at all
times. Every vote counts and you have to decide the future course of the state,
he said.

Chandrababu Naidu has forgotten all the
poll promises and has taken many anti-people measures. The pensions were
reduced from 21,800 during YSR term to 15,000 after Chandrababu Naidu came to
power, he said adding that welfare schemes like Aarogyasri and Fess
Reimbursement have been watered down heavily and ration shops are not supplying
all the essential commodities now.

 The Special Category status has been
pushed back for his personal gains and the job opportunities to the youth has
taken a back seat. The promise of Rs 2,000 unemployment stipend is also not

 Chandrababu Naidu and his cabinet are
replaying the old cassette of elections promises made during 2014 polls. He had
promised to waive loans of farmers but failed. He said Rs 14,000 crores of
loans of DWACRA groups would be waived but went back on the word.

 He also promised to close down all the
belt shops but did not act on that front, he said. This election should be set
a trend with credibility taking the top spot, he said and appealed to the
people to vote for YSR Congress candidate.
