-Seeks Peddireddy dismissal over mining frauds
-Prices should come down, Jagan should step down
-YCP defensive amid rising public discontent

AMARAVATI: TDP National President and former Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu on Monday accused the Jaganmohan Reddy Government of ‘miserably failing’ to control the skyrocketing prices of petrol, diesel, gas and essential commodities in the State.

Naidu slammed Minister Peddireddy Ramachandra Reddy for ‘spearheading’ the massive and illegal mining frauds all over the State in the past three years. Peddireddy should be dismissed from the Cabinet immediately to check the exploitation of natural resources. Already, the mafia gangs have looted thousands of crores in the mining, liquor, sand, land and drugs.

Addressing a meeting with party important leaders here, the TDP chief called upon the cadres and leaders all over the State to step up their agitation against the mining mafia gangs. The party will hold State-wide protests against rising prices of commodities, fuels and gas. The protesters would raise the slogan ‘Prices should come down and Jagan should step down’.

Naidu said within two and half years of its regime, the YSRCP leaders at village and district levels were not able to defend their Government’s failures. The ruling party cadres were in a defensive mood in the face of rising criticism from the people against the Jagan Reddy misrule. The steep rise in prices of commodities put an unbearable burden on all sections of people.

The TDP chief demanded that the Chief Minister should fulfill his election promises and review the PRC urgently in the best interests of the Government employees. The employees of the grama and ward secretariats should be regularities without further delay. The arrest of a farmer in Vinukonda after filing a false case against him was an insult to the entire farmers’ community in the State.

Chandrababu Naidu said that the poor people were not able to celebrate Sankranti festival this year because of increased current bills, rates of petrol, diesel, gas and essential commodities. Jagan Reddy had miserably failed to check prices. Sankranthi Kanuka,
Naidu-s-call-for-State-wide-protests-against-price-rise Ramzan Thofa and Christmas Thofa, introduced during the Chandrababu regime, were arbitrarily cancelled. Protests would be held in all assembly segment headquarters on Tuesday.

The TDP chief said that Peddireddy and other YSRCP leaders were creating havoc in the elections by using money that came from the mining mafia. Peddireddy turned into a big mining mafia don. Officials were not taking action though illegal mining was going on in 150 acres of Dravidian University. Illegal sand transportation was going on.

Naidu deplored that there was no security to the properties and lands of common people. Jagan Reddy began a Rs. 25,000 Cr massive scam by supplying harmful cheap liquor in five years. The Government should call for an all party committee on the looting of mines and stringent punishment should be given to the culprits.

Expressing concern, Naidu recalled that the Vinukonda farmer just requested for timely payment of dues but the YCP MLA threatened to slap him with chappal. YCP ZPTC’s husband Kondreddy was implicated in false cases just for questioning the oppression by the Peddireddy family. The Jagan regime should immediately roll back the hiked taxes in panchayats.

The TDP chief advised the CM to withdraw his conspiratorial plan to form a corporation with just 19 villages of Amaravati. All the 29 Capital villages should be kept together. The CM had promised to bend the necks of the Centre for Special Status and reorganization promises but could not do so till now. Instead, Jagan had bent his own neck. The CM raised the expectations of the employees and now breached their trust.
