Vote for unity: Jagan

Press Release

Pileru, Chittoor Dist, Jan 7, 2013: Taking on the Chief Minister on his home turf, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has reiterated that Sonia Gandhi has been dividing the State for political gains while TDP has been helping her and if the people of the region resolve for a united state we will win 30 MP seats and dictate terms to the national politics to keep the State united.

Addressing a large gathering here on Tuesday during his Samaikya Sankharavam meeting, he said Sonia Gandhi has been dividing the state to make her son Prime Minister while Kiran Kumar Reddy, who represents the local constituency, has been obedient and subservient to her and N Chandrababu Naidu has been helping Congress in the division process.

The two leaders are playing truant while the Assembly is in progress. TDP leader has been double crossing by asking his MLAs to raise slogans as per their regional affiliations and he has never said the word Samaikyandhra and he has given a letter in favour of the division of the state.

The entire nation is well versed with the injustice being done to Andhra Pradesh but the two sons of the soil, Kiran Kumar Reddy and N Chandrababu Naidu are pretended deaf and blind as they have other priorities.

For any state the division process begins with the assembly resolution that will be sent to the Centre which will prepare a draft Bill and send it to the President who in turn will return it to the assembly for further discussions.

“The process is not followed in case of Andhra Pradesh. The state division decision was first taken and then the Bill was sent to the Assembly for discussion. This is the arrogance of Delhi which our Telugu pride should fight against and emerge victorious by winning 30 MP seats and decide the Prime Minister candidate who will express solidarity with our cause,’ he said.

Farmers and students will he victims if the state is divided as the youth after completing education will be deprived of the chance to go to Hyderabad for job if the division takes place and farmers will not get water if the Krishna waters are to be shared by a fourth state.

With more than 50 % of the revenue coming from Hyderabad, there will be no money to pay salaries to the other region as well. If seaports and capital city are divided the development will take a back seat and the two new states will be relegated to lower grading, he said.

Training his guns on Chandrababu Naidu, he said, “the TDP leader has been promising moon during his recent meetings. He is speaking in terms of loan waivers, free power and loans to women groups.

His past will tell his attitude as he was the one who has diluted all the schemes and failed to keep up the poll promises. He did not implement prohibition after elections on the grounds that the state will lose revenue and has encouraged belt shops.

He has collected higher percentage of interest from women groups and it was YSR who has reduced it drastically and introduced pavala vaddi scheme.

“More than anything else Naidu lacks credibility. No one will believe him has he has gone back on all the promises he made. He has antagonized the farming community by imposing higher tariff for power, brought in GOs to arrest defaulters which led to the suicide of farmers.

On the other hand, people have faith in YS Jagan Mohan Reddy as he carries the lineage of YSR who is known for keeping up promises and has shown to the people what a welfare state actually means, “he said.

YS Jagan Mohan Reddy is currently touring Pileru constituency represented by Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy in the assembly.
