‘Jagan, if voted to power, will encourage land grabbing’

Telugu Desam Party president N. Chandrababu Naidu on Friday continued tirade against YSR Congress president Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy saying that the latter would encourage land grabbing in the State if he comes to power.

He claimed that real development was possible only with the TDP which had ensured clean administration earlier.

Addressing public meetings at Itchapuram, Palasa and Patapatnam, he said anarchy would prevail if the YSRC was voted to power in residuary Andhra Pradesh and added that only his party could ensure secure future to people.

He also took a dig at TRS president K. Chandrasekhar Rao and said that the latter was warned against ‘loose talk’ about Seemandhra people.

During his meetings, the TDP chief, in an attempt to woo farmers, assured them that loans would be waived if the party comes to power. In the same vein, he said that a protective mechanism would be put in place to curb crime against women. “The TDP will implement loan waiver at any cost and make agriculture lucrative. We will waive DWACRA loans and also work for women empowerment,” he added. He assured enhancement of pension up to Rs. 1,500 to differently-abled persons and senior citizens.

“Our priority will be people’s welfare. The new government will create more jobs and ensure decent life to youngsters,” said Mr. Naidu.

Party Srikakulam MP candidate Kinjarapu Rammohan, who took part in the meetings, exuded confidence that the TDP would will all the 10 Assembly seats and a Lok Sabha seat with comfortable majority. He said the people were fed up of poor administration and therefore were supporting the Telugu Desam.
