“The YSRC leader amassed wealth illegally during his father’s regime”
Listing out the Government’s welfare programmes, Finance Minister Anam Ramanarayana Reddy launched a scathing attack on the YSRC saying that its president Jaganmohan Reddy misused his father YSR’s name without any scruples.
The Minister charged Jagan with looting the State by misusing power during the regime of former Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy.
Addressing as chief guest at the Congress party’s meeting held at Indira Bhavan here as part of the membership drive on Monday, Mr. Ramanarayana Reddy said that in the name of YSR, Jagan committed unprecedented and massive frauds which were worth one lakh crores rupees. He asserted that the YSRC leaders had no moral right to criticise the Congress considering the scandals in which Jagan was deeply locked up.
Mr. Ramanarayana Reddy also recalled that nearly one and half lakh acres of mining lands were given away on a platter to evangelist Anil Kumar, who is the brother-in-law of Jagan and husband of YSRC lead campaigner Sharmila. He deplored that thousands of acres of land were snatched from innocent farmers in the name of developing the Vadrevu Nizampatnam Port and Industrial Corridor (VANPIC) project in Prakasam district. MLC Vakati Narayana Reddy and other leaders spoke. The Congress leaders also garlanded the statue of Indira Gandhi and paid rich tributes.
