Dubbing Lok Satta president Jaya Prakash Narayan as the marketing agent of TDP President Chandrababu Naidu, YSR Congress Party today asked him to close shop and merge his party with TDP.

Taking umbrage at Jaya Prakash Narayan saying that he couldn't understand the Amma Vodi scheme mentioned in the YSRCP manifesto, party spokesperson Gattu Ramachandra Rao asked the Lok Satta leader to behave like a politician.

"There is nothing complex in the scheme. The scheme is meant to encourage children in the poor families to go to schools and colleges and pursue higher education for their future development in all respects," he said.

YSRCP President Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy toured more than 30,000 km meeting people and understanding their problems, he said. 'With a strong resolve that all children should pursue education for their economic wellbeing, our party President has incorporated the scheme in the election manifesto.

"Jaya Prakash Narayan never goes near to people as he is always away from them. How can he understand the important issues concerning the people, especially the poor?" Gattu remarked.
