Jagan giving Rs 10, looting Rs 100 from people: Nara Lokesh

“Jagan is the only Chief Minister in the country to cancel 100 welfare schemes,” he said, urging the people not to believe the YSRC false propaganda ahead of elections.

VIJAYAWADA: TDP general secretary Nara Lokesh on Sunday accused Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy of deceiving the people by giving them Rs 10 each through welfare schemes, and looting Rs 100 from them in the form of excessive taxes and power tariff and abnormal increase in the prices of essential commodities.

Addressing a series of public meetings in Visakhapatnam district as part of his Sankharavam campaign, Lokesh described Jagan as a good ‘cutting and fitting master’. The YSRC government had discontinued several schemes like Anna Canteens, Pelli Kanuka, Chandranna Bima, Best Available Schools, Videshi Vidya and Fee Reimbursement, and halted pensions for 6 lakh old people, besides suspending the drip irrigation scheme. “Jagan is the only Chief Minister in the country to cancel 100 welfare schemes,” he said, urging the people not to believe the YSRC false propaganda ahead of elections.

Lokesh said, “The upcoming electoral battle in a couple of months is between egoistic Jagan and the self-respect of the people. It is ridiculous that Jagan is terming the elections a war between the poor and feudals when he himself is a multi-millionaire.”

Calling Jagan a blatant liar, he felt that Bharathi Cements, which is set up by looting the public money, belongs to the people but not Jagan. “The TDP-JSP government, which will be in place in another two months, will seize the palaces of Jagan constructed with ill-earned money and hand them over to the public,” he said.

Mocking that Yatra movie produced by spending crores of rupees was not being watched even by YSRC MLAs, he said the last political journey of Jagan had commenced. TDP supremo Nara Chandrababu Naidu and Jana Sena Party chief Pawan Kalyan have come up with the Super Six schemes only after studying the real problems being faced by the common man.”I am assuring you all that the Super Six schemes will be implemented effectively and I will personally take the responsibility,” he added.

Accusing the ruling YSRC leaders of grabbing land in Visakhapatnam in the name of setting up executive capital, he questioned the need for construction of Rs 500 crore palatial building on Rushikonda.
