Govt trumpeting over hollowness of its schemes

Press Release

Hyderabad, May 3, 2013: YSR Congress party on Friday came down heavily on the Government’s trumpeting of its newly announced schemes saying they are only meant for publicity and the Government is not sincere in their implementation.

Addressing newspersons here at the party headquarters, party MLA G. Srikanth Reddy said the Government has been indulging in useless blitzkrieg over the schemes wasting people’s money though their implementation is nowhere to be seen.

While the people are suffering due to lack of water and power across the state, the Government has been unabashedly indulging in useless publicity over the schemes while wisely covering its failure to implement the schemes, he charged.

Lashing out at the Government for failing to implement the schemes such as Re.1 a kg rice, Rajiv Yuva Kiranalu, Ammahastam, Bangaru Talli, Pachchatoranam and for diluting the Arogya Sri, fee reimbursement, 25 paisa interest, 104 and 108 schemes implemented successfully by the YSR regime, Srikanth Reddy said the failure of the Government to implement the schemes exposed its hypocrisy and lack of sincerity towards the public welfare.

The Re.1 a Kg rice scheme, introduced with much fanfare, has been forcing the poor  families to spend an additional Rs.400 each every month for purchasing rice in the open market as the Government is only supplying 20 kg.

“The government has not provided any new permanent jobs under the Rajiv Yuva Kiranalu scheme despite the CM’s promise of providing 10 lakh jobs. While the Indiramma Kalalu has left people with day-dreaming, no new bore wells were dug up under the Indira Jala Prabha,” he said, adding the Government has diluted the YSR’s Arogya Sri Scheme by removing 130 diseases from its purview.

The Government has only allotted Rs.600 Cr in the budget for the Amma Hastam scheme while actual requirement of funds was Rs. 2300 Cr to supply provisions for 2.5 Cr white ration card holders, he said, adding the meager allotment of funds only exposed the lack of Government’s sincerity over its implementation.

The hollowness was exposed when the PM refused to attend the inauguration of the Rajiv Yuva Kiranalu scheme. “The PM refused to attend it as it was a sham,” Srikanth Reddy said.

He said professional students were left high and dry as the Government imposed limitation to the fee reimbursement scheme and added: “Only a leader like Sri Y.S Jagan Mohan Reddy will implement the welfare schemes successfully as YSR did.
