Kakinada: YSRCP chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy called upon Kakinada people to teach a stern lesson to the TDP government in the Kakinada Municipal Corporation elections by siding with truth and justice.
The YSRCP president was speaking at a road show at Annammaghat Centre here on Sunday as part of the party’s campaign for the civic polls scheduled to be held on August 29. Addressing a massive gathering, YS Jagan said that the TDP government owed a whopping Rs 78,000 to every household in Andhra Pradesh state following poll promise that AP Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu had made to the public before 2014 elections.
Chandrababu failed utterly in implementing the promises he had made to the people of the state. “As the Chief Minister himself announced that elections are on the cards in next one and half years, lets us develop our corporation by voting for the YSRCP,” he told the gathering.
“Besides ignoring loan waiver scheme for real beneficiaries in the state, the TDP government has hiked power charges considerably making a hole in the pocket of a common man,” YS Jagan said. “If a consumer used to a pay Rs 200 nominally for certain units power, now he has to shell out Rs 500 for the same units of power consumption which is unfair. The government also increased the property tax by Rs 1,000. The Chandrababu government also watered down the fee reimbursement scheme, which was started by late YS Rajasekhara Reddy with a noble objective to educate the poor and marginal income students.
List of promises that Chandrababu Naidu made to people of the East Godavari district before coming to power:
— Petroleum university in East Godavari district
— Setting up a commercial port at Kakinada
— Petro corridor
