YSRCP will take up people’s issues

Hyderabad, Dec 16: YSR Congress will
highlight in the Assembly, beginning tomorrow, various people’s issues
including the Call Money cum sex racket that rocked the state and the
government has budged to the pressure from opposition prompting the top police
official to cancel his leave to handle the serious case.

‘We will take up the Call Money cum sex
scandal, in which TDP leaders are involved and as a knee-jerk reaction, Police
Commissioner Goutam Sawang had cancelled leave to continue the investigation
ahead of the assembly session besides other issues of public interest,’ Party
Deputy Floor leader Jyothula Nehru, Pillii Subhashchandra Bose and MLA Uppuleti
Kalpana told reporters after the legislature party, chaired by Party President
YS Jagan Mohan Reddy here today.

A bad precedent has been set in with
ministers announcing the number of days of the assembly session which is
otherwise the prerogative of the Business Advisory Committee (BAC). We demand
that the session should be long enough to discuss the pressing issues
concerning the people.

Besides the Call Money cum sex racket,
we will also raise the Government policy on bauxite mining which goes against
the tribal interests and harms the ecology of the region. This apart, the issue
of anganwadi and asha workers who have very just demands and the plight of
contract workers and the issues of drought and floods will be taken up on
priority basis. We will also demand the payment of MSP and purchase of decoloured
paddy and failure to control the prices of essential commodities, they said.

The Vijayawada Commissioner of Police
cancelling his leave and resuming duty has raised the hopes of many people and
we hope that there will be no interference in his functioning and a Special
Investigation Team (SIT) should be set up to expedite the investigation and
protection should be provided to those women who have openly come out and
complained as they have a threat from the scam operators.

The persons involved should not be
spared, however big they are in stature and however strong their political
affiliations are, they said. Meanwhile, in a separate press conference, Ambati
Rambabu echoed similar views and said that the Commissioner of Police should
take the Call Money issue to its logical end.
