Cong. TDP politicising dalit issue: YSRCP

Press Release

, December 5: The SC, ST representatives of YSR Congress will go to the
people to highlight the anti-dalit and anti-tribal policies of Congress and TDP
and to expose the conduct of the two parties during the just concluded special
session of Assembly on SC, ST Sub-Plan. 

“A meeting of
our SC, ST cell has taken a decision to this effect and the action plan will be
chalked out in an extensive executive committee meeting to be held on December
10,” Party leaders Golla Babu Rao, Srinivasulu, Sucharitha, N Surya Prakash and
others told reporters here on Wednesday after the meeting. 

Both Congress
and TDP have tried to use the SC, ST Sub-Plan Bill for political gains with an
eye on elections and we will go to the people to expose their game plan, they

We will also put
across the contrast of TDP regime, YSR term and the present Congress rule with
facts and figures to drive home our point. It was YSR who had drafted nearly 75
welfare schemes for dalits and tribals and the Kiran Kumar Reddy government has
either shelved or diluted many of the schemes. 

TDP was never
sincere in welfare of the downtrodden and has diverted nearly 17,000 crores
from SC and Rs 3,000 crores from ST welfare funds. Our focus will be to
enlighten people about hardships the backward communities have faced during the
nine-year TDP governance and
how tables were turned when YSR took over the reins of State and how the clock
has been moved backward by the Congress after YSR death. 

“One man had
made all the difference to SCs and STs and only YS Jagan Mohan Reddy can take
forward the ideals of YSR and bring in social justice, “they said. 

On categorisaton
they said the Party’s stand is very clear and it was during YSR term that the
resolution was passed twice. The Supreme Court ruling has come in the way, but
we were never against any community, they said adding that Congress and TDP are
trying to rake up the division issue to eke out political mileage.
