Lack of vision is reason for power crisis: Sharmila

YSR Congress Party leader Sharmila, who is on a Maro Praja Prasthanam Padayatra on behalf of YSRCP Chief and her brother Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy, today alleged that Andhra Pradesh is facing power crisis simply because of the negligence of Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy.

Speaking to a group of women at an impromptu interaction at Chinna Kadaburu in the district as part of her walkathon on the 29th day today, Ms Sharmila claimed that the present Congress Government lacked the sort of vision displayed by her father and former Chief Minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy in anticipating the problems.

"There were no power problems when YSR was there," she said, adding that people are being burdened with new taxes and additional power bills now.

Calling upon the people to wait patiently for the return of Rajanna Rajyam, she said 20 lakh pucca houses were built during YSR regime in Andhra Pradesh alone while 45 lakh houses were built in the entire India. "When it comes to power, YSR Congress will ensure that pucca houses are built for the shelter less," she assured. Women complained to Ms Sharmila that they were not regularly getting monthly pensions and were being forced to pay interest though the loans are meant to be interest-free.

"Wait for the good days of Rajanna Rajyam wherein you will be able to solve your problems," she told them, adding the present government has no helping nature.

Ms Sharmila also assured the women that YSRCP, after assuming power under the leadership of Mr Jagan Mohan Reddy, would also implement the 'Amma Odi' scheme for enabling children go to school.

"Under the programme, two kids can pursue their education and money will be directly deposited in the bank accounts of mothers," she said.
