Political system in wrong hands: Jagan

Kothapallimitta (Chittoor
dist), Jan 22, 2014: Taking strong objection for rejecting the permission to install the statue of
YSR here, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has said the political system is in the wrong
hands that have selfish motives with Congress and TDP
playing divisive politics giving scant respect to the sentiments of the people.

“It was YSR who has brought
Congress from the brink to the power by his mass contact programme and the
Congress government has refused to give permission to install his statue which
is a shameful act. After his demise the quality of politics has taken a deep
dip and the degradation of the system has been awful as the rulers have no
concern to the people and their problems,” he said while addressing a large
gathering on Wednesday.

It is unfortunate that the
Government could not give three feet of land for the statue and such vindictive
politics have been in play for over four years now. YSR has redefined the
political thought by ushering in a welfare state in which right from infants to
old age persons were happy with the Aarogyasri, pension and other schemes.

The present day leadership
has a different agenda and its style of functioning is aimed at putting
political adversaries into jails, scheming and sketching dubious designs to win
a few seats and votes by dividing the state for selfish gains ignoring the
sentiments of the 70 % of the people who are in favour of a united state.

While YSR has introduced
fees reimbursement schemes with a vision to provide technical education to at
least one member in a family, the present leadership has taken up the agenda of
dividing the state and depriving the students of jobs by taking away the
capital city from them.

He has introduced
Aarogyasri scheme to provide quality treatment to poor, who otherwise would not
have had the access to corporate hospitals while the state leadership has been
looking after its own interests and the arithmetic of seats but not the welfare
of the people.

After his death,
credibility and honesty have lost their meaning in the political spectrum.
Intrigue, divisive designs and the policy of getting seats and votes by hook or
crook have become order of the day and the degeneration can be seen in the
assembly where the TDP leader N Chandrababu Naidu has been exhibiting his
double standards unabashedly.

He encourages leaders of
Telangana to take slogan for a separate state and directs Seemandhra members to
bat for a united state while he maintains silence. He neither withdraws the
letter he has given in favour of the division nor does he give a fresh letter
to support the united state but allows things to pass on their own.

The duality in his stand is
not perplexing but is a blot on the parliamentary democracy.

Chief Minister N Kiran
Kumar Reddy on the other hand has been very actively expediting the division
process in the garb of an integrationist. Advertisements are been seen all
around projecting him as an integrationist but in that mask he has been dutifully
following the dictates of high command.

Digviajy Singh meets him
and the Chief Minister clears the files with amazing speed as desired by the
high command and tables the division bill in the assembly. The mask he is
wearing has slipped many a  while carrying out the orders of the high
command and TDP leader has been a party to the division process as he refused
to take back the letter when APNGO leaders have asked him.

Chief Minister on his part
has coerced the employees and had seen to it that they called off their strike
seeking a united state.

Sonia Gandhi, Kiran Kumar
Reddy and N Chandrababu Naidu are equally responsible for the division and we
have to fight the battle to bring in clean political system and usher in golden
era of YSR.

The fight is between Telugu
self-pride and Delhi arrogance and we should show our unity and win 30 MP seats
which empower us to elect the Prime Minister who will stand for a united state,
he said.
