Jagan alleges Chandrababu mortgaged Special Category Status of AP for self interest
While Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu seems to be severely embarrassed after Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitly in his Union Budget 2018-19 fully ignored Andhra Pradesh, leader of opposition YS Jaganmohan Reddy is leaving no stone unturned in taking full advantage to expose TDP chief's inability in safeguarding the interests of the state.

During his 11th week of state-wide `pada yatra' (tour on foot), he dubbed the four-year Chandrababu Naidu government as a total sell-out and asked the people to decide as to what type of leader do they need, one who forgets people after elections or the one who keeps promises.

Addressing a large gathering as part of the Praja Sankalpa Yatra in Sangam of Nellore district, he accused that 'Chadrababu Naidu has been talking of development but what he has done during the past four years is a total sell out as he has mortgaged Special Category Status (SCS) for his personal gains and has breached every promise he had made. He said that development should reflect in the increased standard of living of people. But, he deplored that all sections are betrayed with RTC charges, power charges, petrol charges going up, public distribution system (PDS) reducing to an outlet supplying just rice and not the remaining essential commodities as Chandrababu Naidu has been siding with middlemen and corportes to sell the produce while the farmers are not getting MSP even for a single crop.

Stating that over 1.42 lakh jobs lying vacant, he said that the State Public Service Commission was not conducting any exam neither the government was filling up a single vacancy. Though five reservoirs were planned in the uplands of Atmakur and Udayagiri constituencies by his late father Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy, Jagan deplored that nothing had moved forward during the past four years, despite Chandrababu Naidu talking about development.

When it comes to Special Category Status (SCS), he lamented that Chandrababu Naidu has mortgaged it for his personal gains and people are deprived of the jobs that would be coming along with the SCS. Aarogyasri scheme has been punctured and patients are being faced with many hardships, he said.

"Chandrababu Naidu will come again and promise moon but use your discretion in electing the next government," he added. He assured that when his government comes to power with people's blessings, the Navaratnas would benefit all sections of the society. Farmers would be given nine-hour free power, besides interest free loans and an advance of Rs 12,500 ahead of the sowing season, free borewells and funds for checking price fluctuations and to rescue farmers during natural calamities.
