Former Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu did the padayatra to get pylons constructed and not to find out the problems of the people, YSR Congress leader P.Gowtham Reddy.

Mr. Gowtham Reddy who is on a door-to-door campaign in different neighbourhoods of the city went around Ayodhyanagar on Tuesday.

Addressing the media he said that Mr. Naidu went on a padayatra in the night to escape the sun. There was nobody to give representations because all were sleeping at that unearthly hour. His partymen constructed pylons to mark the number of kms. he walked, but every morning walker would have covered more kms. then Mr. Naidu, he quipped. Mr. Naidu made several promises during his padayatra, but he should remember all the promises he made before becoming the Chief Minister and tell the people how many of them he fulfilled, Mr. Reddy said.

He said the people were demanding the development of an IT city to provide jobs for the youth, pollution-free drinking water, bus facility to their locality and registration of house site pattas. Former corporator Y. Srinivasa Rao and others accompanied Mr. Reddy in the door-to-door campaign.

Meanwhile, in Guntur, YSR Congress city convener Lella Appireddy on Tuesday alleged that Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy was launching several welfare programmes, which were practically impossible to implement. Speaking to reporters, he said that the YSRC is holding a women’s convention at Bapatla on May 5 in which party honorary president Y.S Vijayamma will take part. Bapatla coordinator Kona Raghupati is overseeing the arrangements for the convention, he said.
