APCC chief flags off ‘Vijayotsava padayatra’

Staff Reporter

ANANTAPUR: The Congress government in the State had kept 95 per cent of the promises made in the party’s 2004 elections manifesto and the party was on high morally to seek people’s support again based on its achievements, Andhra Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) president D. Srinivas said near Penna Ahobilam Balancing Reservoir (PABR) in the district on Monday.

Speaking at a meeting before flagging off a nine-day ‘Vijayotsava padayatra’ taken up by Minister for Agriculture N. Raghuveera Reddy and others to mark the completion of N. Srirami Reddy Drinking Water Scheme intended to provide safe drinking water to 900 habitations in five Assembly constituencies, he said the Congress government had changed the destiny of drought-prone Anantapur district after 2004 elections and it was for the people of the district to show confidence in the ruling party in 2009 elections.

Change

He recollected that he had toured a large number of villages for three days along with Dr. Reddy before 2004 during the bus yatra and he could see a sea-change in the district now. DCC president P. Venugopal Reddy said the people of Hindupur did not believe in the words of Congress leaders, including Mr. Raghuveera Reddy when they promised supply of safe drinking water everyday before the 2009 Assembly elections.
