Alleging that all systems in the state became destroyed with  YS Rajasekhara Reddy assuming charge as chief minister in 2004, Telugu Desam supremo N Chandrababu Naidu has said that all sections of people are facing hardships during the Congress rule.

Addressing the villagers of Chayapuram on the 12th day of his padayatra in Anantapur district on Saturday, he said farmers were reeling under drought, and steep rise in the prices of fertilisers and seeds, and promised to lift farmers from debts and hardships if his party came to power.

Saying that the state lost its pride due to the large-scale of irregularities and corruption during the Congress rule, he said some investors had to go behind bars due to the selfishness of YSR, his family members and ministerial colleagues. As a result, no one was coming forward to invest in the state, he noted.

Accusing the Congress leaders of committed irregularities in the execution of schemes, including housing where Congress leaders themselves constructed tens of houses, Naidu assured to construct houses for all  poor families by sanctioning Rs 1 lakh for each house. He also assured to provide a minimum pension of Rs 600 for widows and the aged.

Naidu started the day from Chinna Hoturu of Vajrakaroor and made night halt at Hanuman Circle in Guntakal after passing through Gade Hotur, Chayapuram and Konagandla villages.
