YSRCP chief and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, on Saturday, 6 April, said that TDP supremo N Chandrababu Naidu did not fulfil even 10 percent of the promises he had made as a chief minister.

However, he claimed that the YSRCP government has fulfilled 99 percent of the poll promises while addressing a public meeting in Kavali as part of “Memanta Siddham” (we are all ready) election canvassing bus tour.

“Chandrababu Naidu didn’t even fulfil 10 percent of his promises during his terms as the chief minister, while YSRCP has completed 99 percent of the poll promises,” said Reddy.

Jagan questions Naidu

Questioning Naidu if he had done any good to the state, the Chief Minister also asked him about the motive behind the alliance between TDP, Jana Sena, and BJP.

According to Reddy, TDP ganged up with Pawan Kalyan and BJP, which failed to accord the “special category” status to Andhra Pradesh, adding that he had been asking Naidu to list his accomplishments as a 14-year chief minister, but did not get any answers.

Asking people if they were ready to support the ruling party to safeguard the interests of the poor, the Chief Minister alleged that the TDP supremo did not have the guts to tell people what he had done.

Reddy asserted that every household in the state benefited from the YSRCP government’s welfare measures and said that ₹2.7 lakh crore has been deposited in the accounts of the poor in the past 58 months.

CM meets ex volunteers

Meanwhile, the Chief Minister met a bunch of former government volunteers from Nellore district who have resigned their jobs after the Election Commission barred them from discharging electoral and welfare duties.

He told them that the good work done by the volunteers has greatly impacted Naidu and appreciated their efforts.

“In the past, we have also recognised your contributions by awarding Seva Mitras, Seva Vajras, and Seva Ratnas. Upon our return, we will standardise these awards,” he added.

On the ninth day of his electioneering tour, the YSRCP chief passed through Kovuru, Sunnabatti, Tippa, Gouravaram, Kavali, Yelurupadu, Kandukuru, Venkupalem, and others. He will stop at Juvvigunta Cross for the night.

Reddy has embarked on a 21-day election campaign bus tour from Idupulapaya in Kadapa district to Ichchapuram in Srikakulam district.

Elections for the 175-member Assembly and 25 Lok Sabha seats in Andhra Pradesh are scheduled on 13 May and the counting of votes is slated for 4 June.
