Amaravati, Nov 28: Terming BJP’s Prajagraha Sabha as a farce, Information and Public Relations Minister Perni Venkataramaiah said the meeting is being organized according to the script and direction of TDP.
Speaking to media at party central office here on Tuesday, the Minister said no one was angry on the YSRCP government except TDP leaders who joined BJP. He flayed BJP leaders for alleging that the Chief Minister was not meeting the people and said Prime Minsiter Narendra Modi would tour to meet people only during elections for votes and added that BJP leaders are targeting the Chief Minister only to implement TDP’s agenda. He said BJP leaders should feel ashamed for protesting over liquor prices and dared them to speak over increasing fuel prices and added that it was BJP government which is responsible for increase of fuel and fertilizers prices.
Asserting that YSRCP government is committed for the welfare and development of farmers, the Minister slammed BJP for implementing anti farmer policies. He said they have introduced farm laws and repealed them after opposition from farmers and now again claiming that they would reintroduce them and added that BJP is acting against the interests of the farmers. He lashed out at BJP leaders for targeting state government over debts and said it has been taking loans by following Central Government finance department and RBI guidelines. He questioned BJP leaders over debts of Central Government and reminded that they have been increased from Rs62 lakh crore in 2014 to Rs 135 lakh crore at present.
The Minister said Sujana Chowdary and Ramesh Naidu are setting the agenda of BJP in the state on the direction of Chandrababu Naidu and questioned their authority to make statements on recalling IPS officers. He said BJP leaders should focus on putting pressure on Central Government for sanctioning R&R package for Polavaram project. He said BJP leaders don’t have any stand on the issues in the state and they are parroting the script of Naidu. The Minister dared BJP leaders to speak on increasing urea prices, fuel prices, essential commodities prices, special category status, privatization of steel plant.
