YSRCP faults Naidu’s remarks

Oct 7, 2014: Pooh-poohing the remarks of Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu that he
will shoulder the responsibility of clearing farm loans, YSR Congress has said
farmers are in utter confusion as he is going back on his promise on some
pretext or the other and the Party will hold dharnas on Oct 16 at all mandal
headquarters highlighting the failures of the TDP government.  

Chief Minister’s remark at Anantapur that it is his responsibility to clear the
loans of the farmers has been an old tune which he has been singing even before
the elections but did not fulfill a single promise and farmers are in distress
and confused with his delay and dilly-dallying. There is restlessness among the
farmers and we will be taking up their cause and hold dharnas across the State
on October 16,” Party spokesperson Ambati Rambabu told reporters here on

every passing day, the anxiety and disappointment among farmers and DWACRA
women groups have been increasing. As Chandrababu Naidu has time and again
promised and failed to keep it up, people are not in a position to believe him
though he has put up a brave face to pass some favourable remark at the
Anantapur meeting.  

the Chief Minister should persuade the RBI Governor, who will be in city soon,
to give this assurance which will bring some credence to his remarks. He has
given impracticable promises and has set up committees and also Farmers
Empowerment Corporation aimed at clearing 20 % loans and issuing bonds for the

concrete has been done so far and not a single loan was waived and the Chief
Minister telling that he is struggling to do the balancing act is ridiculous as
he has described as inexperience our leader YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s apprehension
on clearing loans to a tune of 1.27 lakh crores.  

experienced TDP leader has also told the Election Commission that he has full
grip on State economy and his Party has done its homework for the loan waiver.
People believed and voted TDP to power. Still he is finding ways, escape routes
and the methodology to drastically reduce the quantum of loans.  

The total
agriculture loan waiver has been reduced to crop loan then loans against gold
were deleted from the list, which was shrunk further to one loan per family.  

With such
a dubious record of the Chief Minister, farmers are bound to be at the
receiving end and as a responsible opposition party we will take up the cause
by holding dharnas and we will chalk out future course of action,” he said.
