Cong, TDP politicising Dalits issue: YSRCP
The SC, ST representatives of YSR Congress party will go to people to highlight the anti-dalit and anti-tribal policies of Congress and TDP and expose the conduct of the two parties during the just concluded special session of Assembly on SC, ST Sub-Plan.
A meeting of our SC, ST cell has taken a decision to this effect and the action plan will be chalked out in an extensive executive committee meeting to be held on December 10, Party leaders Golla Babu Rao, Srinivasulu, Sucharitha, N Surya Prakash and others told reporters here today.
They alleged both Congress and TDP have tried to use the SC, ST Sub-Plan Bill for political gains with an eye on elections and we will go to the people to expose their game plan, they said.
We will also put across the contrast of TDP regime, YSR term and the present Congress rule with facts and figures to drive home our point.
It was YSR who had drafted nearly 75 welfare schemes for dalits and tribals and the Kiran Kumar Reddy government has either shelved or diluted many of the schemes, they further said.
The TDP was never sincere in welfare of the downtrodden and has diverted nearly 17,000 crores from SC and Rs 3,000 crores from ST welfare funds, they said and added Our focus will be to enlighten people about hardships the backward communities have faced during the nine-year TDP regime.
