NANDYAL: YSRC chief Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy has cautioned the electorate of Nandyal of yet another attempt by Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu to take them for a ride with tall promises which “he never intends to fulfil”.
“He will switch on his tape recorder. Don’t be misled by what he says. Be on the side of dharma and pray to God before casting your vote,” Jagan said during his road shows in Gospadu, Srivivasapuram and Yaluru in Nandyal Assembly segment on the fourth day of his campaign on Saturday.
He said Chandrababu Naidu after becoming the Chief Minister had cheated the farmers by going back on his promise of farm loan waiver and forgot his promise of the creation of a price stabilisation fund with a corpus of `5,000 crore for the benefit farmers.
He reiterated that the right punishment for a leader like Chandrababu Naidu who conveniently forgets promises made to people is to hang him. “Tell me, will it be wrong if he is hanged,” he asked the people, despite Election Commission issuing a notice to him earlier for making a similar intemperate comment on Naidu. Now, Mirchi farmers too are left in the lurch, unable to get the right price. They are setting their Mirchi crop on fire, he said.
The YSRC chief recalled the promise made by Naidu that once he became CM, he would announce `2,000 as unemployment dole for them. “What happened to the promise?,” he asked and wondered whether Naidu, who had promised three cents of land to the disadvantaged sections, had built even one house for the poor. Before Naidu became CM, ration shops used to provide nine types of grocery items but now except rice, there is nothing in the ration shops, he said.
Naidu had promised airport, Urdu university, smart city status, IIIT, railway wagon factory, food park, industrial city and completion of Gundrevula project for Kurnool. “Did Naidu fulfil any one of the promises made to the people of Kurnool,” he asked.He wondered why the TDP legions were saying that no one should question Naidu even though he glosses over his responsibility owf keeping his promises. “Jagan will not lie. He will do what he says,” he said.
