Jagan accuses TD of colluding with Congress

YSR Congress Party president and Kadapa MP-elect Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy on Friday charged the Kiran Kumar Reddy government with failing to provide succour to the poor and termed it ‘anti-poor'.

Mr. Reddy, who is on a three-day tour of Kadapa district, today unveiled statues of YSR at Pendlur and Chagaleru at Vemula mandal in Pulivendula constituency.

Addressing people at Chagaleru, Mr. Reddy asserted that farmers were deprived of minimum support price after YSR's demise. Accusing the Telugu Desam Party of not playing the role of the main Opposition but colluding with the Congress, he claimed that YSR Congress Party alone was playing the role of an Opposition effectively.

Mr. Reddy recalled that TDP chief N. Chandrababu Naidu had planned to move a no-trust move against the YSR government when his party had 49 MLAs. He questioned why the party was reluctant now to move such a motion against an ‘inept government' despite having 90 MLAs.

Mr. Naidu's attitude towards the present government amply indicated the nexus between the Congress and the TDP, he claimed and alleged that Mr. Naidu was shedding crocodile tears trying to highlight plight of farmers.

People were eagerly awaiting the fall of the Congress government in the State, Mr. Reddy said and added that time for restoration of YSR's golden rule was fast approaching. People would teach a lesson to the Congress and the TDP, he said.

Mr. Reddy will participate in his grandfather Y.S. Raja Reddy's death anniversary at Pulivendula on May 23.

The MP-elect visited Kadapa and consoled the bereaved family of socialist leader Maseema Rajagopala Reddy, who passed away on Thursday, at Mochampet here. He garlanded the leader's portrait and offered condolences.

Congress MLAs – C. Adinarayana Reddy (Jammalamadugu) and A. Amarnath Reddy (Rajampet) were also present.
