YSRCP MPs Slam Budget 2017-18

Delhi: YSRCP MPs spoke to the media after participating in the budget sessions of the parliament. Expressing dissatisfaction towards the budget, Mekapati opined that sanction of special category status as mentioned in reorganisation act would have been helpful. Slamming the double standards followed by TDP, he recollected how Chandrababu suggested at the time of elections that SCS should be sanctioned for 15 years and how he recently started projecting special package as a better option.

CM Chandrababu was worried more about making  his son, Lokesh, the CM of the state, than about the welfare of the people, commented YSRCP MP, Mekapati Rajamohan Reddy.

Reminding that SCS would bring with it industries and employment, Mekapati stated that they would keep fighting for the status under the leadership of YS Jagan. Welcoming the tax exemption announced to farmers who had given away their lands for land pooling in the capital area, he said that no other things mentioned in the budget were useful for the state. He added that this factor also would benefit TDP leaders more than poor farmers.

YSRCP MP, Butta Renuka, exclaimed that the budget introduced by cabinet minister, Arun Jaitley, was dissatisfying. She expressed concern about it and commented that there was nothing positive about it except the tax exemption in capital area.

Tirupati MP, Vara Prasad, denied to accept special package as an alternative for special category status.

YSRCP MP of Ongole constituency, YV Subbareddy, opined that the budget 2017-18 had done injustice to AP. Speaking to the media after the budget session, he condemned not sanctioning special railway zone to AP. Slamming the negligence of Chandrababu towards the state's development, he informed that YSRCP's fight for SCS would further be consolidated.

YSRCP MP, V.Vijaya Sai Reddy, opined that the central Government was tricking the people of AP, just as the state. Expressing discontent for the budget 2017-18 introduced by cabinet finance minister, Arun Jaitley, not benefiting AP state in any way, he spoke to the media to opine that the budget only benefited the TDP leaders who had bought lands at the time of land pooling in the capital region, recollecting how the TDP MPs showed their delight when the budget had been announced. He called it unfortunate for the TDP MPs to support special package while YSRCP was seriously fighting for sanction of SCS.
