Chandrababu mortgaged Special Status for self interest: YS Jagan

Dubbing the four-year Chandrababu Naidu government as a total sell-out, YSR Congress President YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has said that people should decide as to what type of leader do they need, one who forgets people after elections or the one who keeps up the promises.

Addressing a large gathering as part of the Praja Sankalpa Yatra here on Tuesday, the Leader of Opposition said, Chadrababu Naidu has been talking of development but what he has done during the past four years is a total sell out as he has mortgaged Special Category Status (SCS) for his personal gains and has breached every promise he had made.

Development should reflect in the increased standard of living of people but all sections are betrayed with RTC charges, power charges, petrol charges going up, Public Distribution System (PDS) reducing to an outlet supplying just rice and not the remaining essential commodities as Chandrababu Naidu has been siding with middlemen and corportes to sell the produce, farmers not getting MSP even for a single crop and 1.42 lakh jobs lying vacant and the State Public Service Commission not conducting any exam nor the government filling up a single vacancy, he said.

Though five reservoirs were planned in the uplands of Atmakur and Udayagiri constituencies by Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy nothing has moved forward during the past four years, despite Chandrababu Naidu talking about development.
