Our goal is to see smiles on the faces of farmers and common man

Guntur: YSRCP chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy asked if Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu had fulfilled any one of the promises he had made in the last four years. Speaking at a public meeting which was held as part of thr 115th day of Praja Sankalpa Yatra in Pedanandipadu in Pratipadu constituency here today, he said political change would come only when we defeat corrupt and manipulating leaders like Chandrababu.

The YSRCP chief mentioned that one need not be surprised if TDP promises one kilogram of gold and a Benz car to every household in the state during the next elections. "Why did Chandrababu welcome the Special Package instead of Special Category Status (SCS) to AP when it was announced on September 8, 2016? In fact, he welcomed it and even praised the centre in the Assembly. Later, he went to New Delhi and felicitated union finance minister Arun Jaitley. Now once again when the finance minister announced Special Package to AP, why did he ask his ministers to resign from NDA government? Why didn't he ask his ministers to resign then?" asked YS Jagan.

He added that the Andhra Pradesh chief minister had been playing drama with regard to SCS to AP over the last four years, "this is unpardonable." The goal of YSRCP is to see smiles on the faces of farmers and common man in the state, he mentioned. YS Jagan asserted that while the central government had constructed 40 lakh houses for the poor, Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy constructed 48 lakh houses in the state, "This was no mean achievement," he added.

YS Jagan pointed out that Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy's dream was to have houses for one and all. "I am here to fulfill that wish." He said that during the last four years TDP government had not constructed a single house. The YSRCP President recalled that his father Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy had constructed 24 lakh houses in 13 districts of AP and added that he would construct a minimum of one lakh more houses so that no poor man would be without a roof over his head.
