Sharmila takes Krishna District by storm

Vijayawada, March 26, 2013:
Sharmila took the Krishna district by storm with a colossus of an entry as the
Maro Praja Prastham padayatra was welcomed by a mammoth gathering at the
Prakasam barrage.  

While
the padayatra was coming like a whiff of fresh air from the banks of Krishna
river, the Prakasam barrage was packed with well wishers, sympathisers and
party workers who extended an overwhelming welcome to the Sharmila as slogans
of Jai Jagan rent the air.  

The
venue was spruced up to suit the occasion and the party flag running over one
km was fluttering at the barrage which connects the Guntur and Krishna
district. The farewell and welcome were equally rapturous.  

The
huge turnout at the entry point will have its signature tune to the course
ahead in the district as the politically sensitive region is looking towards
the change going by the sequence of events that unfolded during recent past.  

Sharmila’s
padayatra will cover 300 km spread across 14 constituencies and she will
interact with people at various places besides addressing public meetings.    

She
crossed the Prakasam barrage on the 102nd day of her padayatra
covering 225 villages in 14 assembly segments spread over 371.5 km. 

Later
addressing a public meeting, Sharmila lambasted State government for deflating
YSR schemes and adopting anti-people policies.  

“One
day Jagan will come and usher in YSR golden era,” drawing huge applause.  

Farmers,
students, women and workers are getting a raw deal and the Kiran Kumar Reddy
government has failed on all fronts.  

The
Chief Minister has been talking tall but when it comes to deeds he is blanking
out. The severe power crisis is affecting agriculture and many industries are
closed down rendering many workers jobless.  

In
the state 80 lakh people are depended on textiles and the state has imposed
high VAT on textiles and though they are protesting for 18 days, the government
is indifferent.  

“We
stand for them. YS Jagan has advocated for abolishing of VAT and he promised that
YSRCP will do away with VAT“ she said.  

 Recalling
the welfare schemes implemented by YSR, she said one man has made all the
difference. After his death all his welfare schemes were punctured and the
Congress government has been neglecting all sections.  

People
lost faith in the Congress government; only TDP leader has full faith in the
Kiran Kumar Reddy government which is the reason why he did not move a no
confidence motion.  

Naidu
acted as World Bank agent and hiked the power charges time and again and was
very harsh against the defaulters. Power sector got a beating during
Chandrababu Naidu term while YSR has revived it and has waived power dues, she
said.
