Jagan: State needs change

Press Release

Nayudupeta (Nellore dist), Jan 31, 2014: Strongly advocating a change in the political system which has been decayed as the public figures are keeping personal and political agenda ahead of the people’s welfare, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has said the welfare state of YSR golden era should be brought back by rejecting the divisive and opportunistic forces.

“YSR has been remembered by everyone as his welfare schemes have touched every section of the society and the present day politicians have been working for their personal and political gains by dividing the state unmindful of the majority opinion and they should be thought a lesson in the elections,” he said while addressing a public meeting as part of his Samaikya Sankarvam here on Friday.

“We shall fight a united battle against the divisive and selfish forces and win 30 MP seats to keep the state united and reject the divisive designs of Sonia Gandhi, Kiran Kumar Reddy and N Chandrababu Naidu who had given a go by to morals and best practices in parliamentary democracy.

This is a battle between Telugu self-pride and Delhi arrogance and we should wage a united battle and get a decisive mandate to show Delhi that we can see a person who is in favour of a united state as Prime Minister,” he said.

Unlike YSR, the present day politicians have a different definition and meaning for politics. Division of state and vindictive policies form the core of the political system which should be rehashed and good practices should be brought in.

YSR is still remembered by the people as he had a vision and could understand the plight of the people. He had interacted with the people first hand which was basis for the slew of welfare schemes he has launched.  

He wanted the provide quality treatment to the poor as the major ailments have been pushing many of them into indebtedness. He has started Aarogyasri and 108 ambulances which would ferry the patients to hospitals.

His vision was to provide technical education to at least one person in a family and has introduced fees reimbursement scheme besides launching Pavala Vaddi scheme to empower women. All these form part of the vision of YSR.

“We should elect a leader who would bring back the golden era of YSR, who has increased the pensions from what Chandrababu Naidu was giving during his term. He could see the welfare of people beyond caste, creed, regional and political affiliations,” he said.

 The rotten political system had come to the fore in the just concluded assembly session during which Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy had helped the Bill to get clearances in 17 hours from various Departments and helped at every juncture for the division process.

Chandrababu Naidu on the other hand had been openly encouraging his members to speak according to their regional affiliations. With such double standards, he has no face to go to any one region to seek votes.

Had the Chief Minister resigned the moment Congress high command took the decision to split the state things would not have come this far, he said.

We have to stand united and give a decisive mandate to keep the state united as the students who are deprived of job opportunities in Hyderabad and farmers who will not get water and other sections that would be affected by the division giving a thumping mandate to the Party that has stood for a united state throughout.
