New Delhi: YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) chief YS Jaganmohan Reddy has accused both the Congress and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for neglecting Andhra Pradesh and said whoever fulfills the demand for a special category status for the state would get his support.
Jaganmohan said in the ensuing Lok Sabha polls it is going to be a battle between reliability versus deception. Chief minister Chandrababu Naidu has deceived Andhra Pradesh’s people. His entire governance, his commitments of 2014 and what he delivered all have fallen flat. This also includes the special category status.
Jaganmohan said Naidu was with the BJP for four years and his MPs were in the National Democratic Alliance cabinet. But he did nothing about it. Corruption is also a big issue and in Andhra Pradesh, it has gone way beyond anybody’s imagination. People see through it.
Then you have Amravati scam. Naidu knew where the capital was coming and he purposely tricked that capital was coming elsewhere and then he and his benamis bought land where the capital was actually coming. That is a big scam.
Reddy said last time, the difference between winning and losing was just 1%. Today, the situation is completely different. Last time, Naidu was in the Opposition so had no anti-incumbency against him. But this time things are different.
