VIJAYAWADA: APCC chief N Raghuveera Reddy has announced that the Congress party will extend support to the state government in making the ‘Janmabhoomi’ programme a success provided the ruling party does not use it as a propaganda for TDP.
He, however, demanded that the government fulfill all the promises made by the party in the run-up to the elections without imposing any kind of condition.
Raghuveera Reddy expressed doubts over the motive behind the removal of the 50-page poll manifesto from TDP’s official website which had a litany of promises including waiver of the farm loans and DWCRA loans.
Addressing a press conference here Sunday, he said, “The website is having all the information about the party activities for the last four to five years. But the 50-page manifesto is missing.” The PCC chief also warned the government not to make an attempt to remove any name from the existing pensioners list and cancel the white ration cards. “We (Congress government) have increased the number of pensioners from 18 lakh to 72 lakh. Do not dare delete a single name from the list,” he warned.
Speaking on the defeat in the Nandigama bypolls in which Congress candidate bagged nearly 25,000 votes, he said the party is slowly gaining support.
Party senior leader C Ramchandriah attacked TDP chief Nara Chandrababu Naidu for allowing Diwakar Reddy to join the yellow party though he had been accused of murdering several TDP men.
