Minister slams Naidu

Amaravati, May 31: Stating that the people of the state have welcomed ‘Samajika Nyaya Bheri’ bus yatra, Minister Jogi Ramesh slammed Opposition Chief Chandrababu Naidu for encouraging abusive and provoking language in Mahanadu and said Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has delivered social justice in the state.

Addressing media at party central office here on Tuesday, the Minister said the Chief Minister was committed for the political empowerment of BCs SCs, STs and Minorities and thus introduced an Act for 50 percent of reservation to them in nominated posts and works and added that BC community people have distanced themselves from TDP because of Naidu. He questioned Naidu what has he done to BCs in his tenure.

Condemning the remarks of Naidu on anti incumbency in the state, the Minister said the state government has disbursed 1.41 lakh crores directly into the accounts of poor people under DBT schemes and questioned why would there be anti incumbency on the government. He said Naidu would have sold Rajya Sabha seats unlike the current Chief Minister who gave prominence to BCs.

He said the Chief Minister has been following the footsteps of Gandhi and Phule and committed for the welfare and development of the weaker sections in the state and they were also commited to vote for the Chief Minister in 2024 elections. He said ‘Badude Badudu’ campaign of Naidu was a complete failure and the proposed padayatra of Nara Lokesh would be also a disaster as people don’t have belief in them.
