YSRCP chief Jagan says if one has pen, it is easy to sign but difficult to implement what one promises with that signature. YSRCP is set to launch a struggle over not just the promises made in the election manifesto of Telugu Desam Party but also the first signature by Chandrababu Naidu after becoming the chief minister. YSRCP during its campaign will stress the point that signature alone is not enough, there should be credibility. YSRCP leaders say Chandrababu signed five files after becoming the chief minister. Jagan has appealed to his party cadre to create awareness among people and pull up TDP over the fact that despite signature, the files were never implemented. Jagan has decided to launch a big attack on Chandrababu for not fulfilling his promises.
Jagan’s argument is that during the four-year-rule Chandrababu uttered all lies. He says that Chandrababu is pulling up Centre for going back on its promises but he is forgetting his own promises. He alleged that even 10 percent of the promises made by Chandrababu were not implemented. Jagan asked his party cadre to bring this to the notice of the people during padyatra in all the constituencies on 14th and 15th of this month. Jagan’s praja sankalp yatra will be completing 2,000 km on 14th May. The party has directed the leaders to organize padyatras on this occasion in all 175 constituencies of AP.
Jagan has made some suggestions to the party leaders on this occasion. Chandrababu’s first signature was to shut all belt shops but he has forgotten this. Today, one can see belt shops everywhere in the state. He also reminded Chandrababu of his promise to supply 20 liter mineral water to every household. Chandrababu had also signed a file to waive agriculture loans. Jagan wants him to come before people and tell them where were these loans waived.
Jagan is also targeting Chandrababu who vowed to build Amaravati as a wonderful capital city but despite the central government providing Rs.1,500 crore, did not build a single permanent building. Thus, YSRCP has decided to conduct large scale campaign among people over Chandrababu’s signatures and promises. For this the party is sending white papers in large numbers to villages and it has also asked party leaders to educate people during the public meetings to be held at district collectorates on May 16. The party leaders have also been asked to tell people about the government’s failure to fulfill the promises made to 13 districts on August 15, 2014. To sum up, YSRCP is beginning to launch a counter attack on Chandrababu who is busy telling the Centre to fulfill its promises. It remains to be seen whether the party succeeds in this effor or not.
