Congress accused of creating problems for the programme

Telugu Desam Party firm on exposing the government, says party leader

Over 40,000 party activists from the district to attend the event

Kakinada: The district in-charge of Telugu Desam Party’s ‘Yuva Garjana’, Y.B. Rajendra Prasad, has exuded confidence that the programme will earn a place in history as an unprecedented event in spite of the Congress attempts to create problems. “The government has, for instance, refused to supply the full number of RTC buses requested by the TDP whereas the RTC was made to deploy a huge number of its vehicles at nominal charges during the visits of AICC president Sonia Gandhi. The TDP is, however, undeterred by such cheap tactics which are meant to undermine its efforts to expose the government’s wrongdoings,” he said.

Addressing media persons here on Sunday, Mr. Rajendra Prasad said that the TDP would explain to people, particularly youth on whose shoulders lied the burden of protecting the State’s resources in future, how the Congress leaders were achieving personal advancement in collusion with contractors.

“Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy has earned the dubious distinction of being one of the most corrupt Chief Ministers in the country and he was able to sustain his goodwill in the party high-command by sending money bags,” Mr. Prasad alleged.

“The Yuva Garjana will focus on corruption in high places, which has become the bane of people of Andhra Pradesh. Besides, the Congress has failed to keep many promises it had made during the 2004 elections. To compound the people’s woes, it sought to promote projects like the coastal corridor and Special Economic Zones which were obviously intended to benefit capitalists. The people will be therefore asked to exercise their choice properly and be not lured by the overtures of the ruling party,” Mr. Prasad added.

TDP district president N. Chinna Rajappa said nearly 40,000 party activists from the district were expected to take part in Yuva Garjana.
