HYDERABAD: YSRC chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has asked his party MLAs to get ready for a face-off with the ruling TDP during the maiden session of the Assembly of truncated Andhra Pradesh, which will begin on Thursday here, on the delay in implementing the crop loan waiver scheme.
The YSRC boss, who will be entering the House for the first time in his political career after being elected from his family’s bastion, Pulivendula segment, on Wednesday had an interactive session with the newly elected legislators of his party.
Of the 67 MLAs, as many as nine skipped the meeting. The absence of nine MLAs assumes significance as the TDP leadership is claiming that some of the YSRC legislators are in touch with it.
The session which was conducted at Jagan’s residence here on Wednesday was aimed at formulating the strategy of YSRC Legislature Party (YSRCLP) to be adopted in the maiden sitting of AP Assembly.
According to sources, while addressing his party MLAs, Jagan Reddy told them that instead of attacking the new government on every issue, the party should adopt a cautious approach in such a way that the government is pushed to the corner on its “anti-people policies”.
“Let’s play a constructive opposition role in the Assembly. If the government ignores the problems of common man and implements anti-people policies, then we will have to attack it,” Jagan Reddy was quoted as saying.
The YSRC boss, however, decided not give any concession to the treasury benches on the delay in implementation of the crop loan waiver scheme.
