Vijayawada, Nov 16: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy on Wednesday said that his YSR Congress Party is the natural ally of people unlike TDP which has ganged up with friendly media to cheat the people with false election promises.

Addressing a huge public meeting in Macherla in Palnadu district, the Chief Minister mocked the mini election manifesto of TDP and Jana Sena Party and said that people are not ready to believe the 11- point false election promises of Naidu and his foster son.

The state government has so far spent Rs. 2,40,000 crore and Rs. 1,70,000 crore through DBT and non-DBT schemes respectively implementing 99.95 per cent of its election promises besides creating 2.7 lakh government jobs during the last 53 months.

The YSRCP government has been striving hard for the social, political, economic and educational empowerment of the SC, ST, BC and minorities, he said, adding that the welfare schemes and people’s confidence in the government are his courage.

“Despite Covid-19 pandemic and heavy borrowings thrust on us by the TDP rule, we never stopped implementing welfare programmes and development works. That was our commitment,” and this is the right time for people to compare present and previous regimes.

While we have changed the landscape of rural economy and village administration with village and ward sectarians, revolutionized the Medical and Health sector with new medical colleges, village clinics, family doctors and Jagananna Aarogya Suraksha, strengthened educational institutions and hospitals with Nadu-Nedu and digitalization and handholding the farmers with the unique RBKs, but TDP Chief N Chandrababu Naidu only talks of the vision 2047 while neglecting the present, he said.
