Mysura: YSRCP ahead in panchayat polls

Press Release

Hyderabad, July 19,
2013: Asserting that the Party candidates and sympathizers have won most of the
unanimous seats in the first phase of the panchayat elections, YSR Congress has
said that it will continue to put up the good show in the other ensuing elections
as well.

“YSRCP is ahead of
other parties in the first phase where the Party affiliated candidates won 855
panchayats. The figure we are giving is based on authentic data collected from
ground zero and it stands the scrutiny of the State Elections Commission,” Party
senior leader Dr MV Mysoora Reddy told reporters here on Thursday.

This is just the first
phase and since the withdrawal of nominations is over, the data we have given
is that of the candidates elected unopposed. Elections will be held wherever
there is a contest and in the second phase as well our Party will get maximum
number of seats. The MPTC and ZPTC elections too will be in favour of YSR
Congress, he said.

Congress is scared of
elections and has tried to delay the polls on one pretext or the other right
from the by-polls of rebel MLAs, whose disqualification was announced after the
four year term of the assembly is complete leaving no scope for by-elections.

“Due to constitutional
obligation the Government is forced to conduct the local bodies’ polls. Though
the panchayat polls are held on non-party basis, our sympathisers and cadre
took the majority of the unopposed seats with the ruling party coming second
and TDP finishing a poor third.

Our tally will improve
further after the voting and the same trend will continue in all the subsequent
elections, he said.

Though some political
parties are giving false figures and are attempting to malign our image, we
stand by the figure we have given, he said.

On Fees Poru, he said,
“the government is watering down the fees reimbursement scheme by capping the
fees at RS 35,000. Only 175 colleges are the minimum fees of Rs 35,000 while
all other colleges either have a higher slab or have approached court to
increase the fees.

With the government
agreeing to reimburse only Rs 35,000 that too with some riders, students of the
weaker sections will not have access to higher and technical education.
