Chandrababu is worse than Narakasura, says Jagan
May 26: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy on Friday termed TDP president N. Chandrababu Naidu as unreliable and worse than Narakasura.
He appealed to people not to believe Chandrababu Naidu and fall prey to his hollow promises.
Addressing a public meeting here after launching the distribution of house sites among the poor, the Chief Minister said that Chandrababu Naidu remembers the poor at election time and goes on making false promises to hoodwink them.
Not even a cent of land was given to the poor during the TDP rule, he said, stating that Naidu threw the 600-page TDP election manifesto into the dustbin after coming to power with false promises.
"Chandrababu cheated all sections of society including unemployed, women and farmers," he said, adding that the former Chief Minister begins making empty promises as the election time draws nearer.
He said the government worked hard even during the Covid-19 pandemic to acquire land for allotment of house sites to the poor, treating the YSRCP election manifesto as sacred as Bhagavad Gita, Quran and the Bible unlike Naidu who never cared for the poor.
"I earnestly call upon you not to believe in Naidu. You can believe even Narakasura but not Nara Chandrababu Naidu," he said, adding that Naidu is trying to create obstacles even after the Supreme Court gave nod for distribution of house sites for the poor in the R-5 zone.
"Just think why Naidu failed to implement the welfare programmes which the government is implementing now, though percentage wise the budget now is low," he said, adding Naidu only implemented the policy of plunder, stash and devour while his foster son and friendly media had silently supported him.
The Chief Minister further said that the government has been fighting a class war unleashed against it by the TDP which is against the poor.
"You should not fall prey to the evil designs of the TDP and the gang of thieves," he appealed to them.
While Naidu looted the exchequer during the TDP rule, his foster son and friendly media were silent but now all of them joined together to hoodwink the people once again, he said, reiterating that the government spent more than Rs 3 lakh crore through DBT and non-DBT welfare schemes in the last four years.
"If you feel you have benefitted through the welfare schemes, stand by YSRCP and bring us victory in the next elections to continue the good work in future too," he told the people.
