Do not fall prey to false promises: Vijayamma
Cautioning the people not to fall prey to the hyperbolic promises of development and grandiose talk of creating jobs of TDP, YRS Congress party president YS Vijayamma today said the party's promises were down-to-earth and YSR family was known to keep the and appealed to them to vote for YSRCP fan symbol,in the ongoing Lok Sabha polls.
All the promises made during the elections campaign by TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu are false and it is very difficult to implement them, Ms vijayamma said while addressing a public meeting here.
His (Naidu) claim that he developed Hyderabad into an Information Technology (IT) hub is a stark lie as the city has slipped from third to fifth place after he took over as Chief Minister, she said.
While 81,000 IT professionals had employment during his term, it has swelled to 2.5 lakh jobs after YSR has taken over, she said and added that he (Naidu) has promised of converting Hyderabad in to Singapore and the state as 'Swarnandhra Pradesh' while he was chief minister but did nothing other than making merry with public money and going to places and following the World Bank dictates.
He was party to division of the state and joined hands with Sonia Gandhi who has divided the state to see her son Rahul Gandhi as Prime Minister, she alleged.
Ms Vijayamma said it is time to use prudence in electing the right leader at this very important point of history.
"We need to develop the new state with the necessary infrastructure, including airports, seaports and industrial corridors and this could be possible only with a leader who has been with you and had taken up your cause at various platforms,
She appealed to the public to "strengthen YS Jagan Mohan Reddy's candidature for the Chief Minister post and give the party maximum MPs to ensure that we get enough funds and be in a position from where we can have access to the Prime Minister to develop the new state," she said.
Mr Reddy will bring back the golden era of YSR and pursue with all his welfare schemes and sign five files, she assured.
Mr Reddy will not privatise RTC and State Electricity Board but will regularize all contract employees, she added.
