Congress remarks on YSR family flayed

Press Release

Hyderabad, May 22, 2013: Lashing out at Congress for targeting YSR and his family members in its extended state executive meeting, YSR Congress has said the ruling party has cheated the people by dumping the 2009 poll promises and sailing with TDP for mutual benefit.  

“Targeting YSR and his family members using exaggerated expressions and trying to hijack YSR welfare schemes and dubbing them as Congress schemes amounts to treachery as YSR steered Congress to a victory in 2009 while his pet schemes were either diluted or done away with,” party spokesperson Jupudi Prabhakar told reporters here on Wednesday.  

It is also saddening to note that YSR picture was not seen at the venue. The nine-hour free power and 30 kg rice schemes are the twin promises of YSR which the Congress government has never tried to own up while the Aarogyasri, fees reimbursement and pension schemes were totally scaled down, he said.  

On one hand the speakers were very vocal in criticizing YSR and family members in the name of economic offences and tried to project that the welfare schemes were that of Congress party. Congress leaders went on patting their backs that they have been implementing many welfare schemes including Aarogyasri.  

In reality, Aarogyasri scheme has been deflated and an eligibility criteria has been fixed for the fees reimbursement scheme which has diluted the scheme drastically, he said.  

The tone of the leaders who spoke on the economic offences was high and had little or no substance. It was the State government that has filed an affidavit stating that all the 26 GOs were in order the there were no deviations as they were issued as part of the government policy.

Only the other day, Dharmana Prasada Rao, has said that there is no quid pro quo in the 26 GOs issue and the decisions were taken complying with the business rules. Cabinet decisions are collective in nature and no single individual can influence the process. He also made it clear that the GOs form part of the industrial policy of the day.

The ruling Party instead of targeting main opposition TDP has devoted its entire day of deliberations to criticse YSR and his family members and try to own up his welfare schemes.

Sidestepping TDP by important leaders and aiming at YSRCP shows the level of understanding it has with the main opposition party and the duo is working in tandem against the common adversary YS Jagan Mohan Reddy.  

“This farce is being watched by the people and in the general elections they will give their verdict in a clear tone putting an end to the game of nexus between the ruling and main opposition parties,” he said.  

YS Jagan Mohan Reddy is the true heir of YSR and in the coming days, it will be proved beyond doubt and YSRCP will get a clear mandate in the next elections, he said.
