YCP MPs interested in cheap gimmicks but not AP welfare


Killings, kidnappings and threats condemnable: Anitha
Attacks on Atchannaidu, Pattabhi to divert public attention

AMARAVATI: Telugu Mahila State President Vangalapudi Anitha on Wednesday accused the YCP MPs, Ministers and MLAs of misusing the police and Government machinery to create a fear psychosis among the people in the midst of the ongoing panchayat elections in the State.

Ms. Anitha said that the YCP MPs were solely interested in resorting to cheap election gimmicks in AP rather than using their good offices to bring a better to the State in Delhi. There were no funds for Polavaram, metro rail projects, etc in AP. But, MP Vijay Sai Reddy preferred to make a visit to Nimmada only with the intention of creating tensions there.

Addressing a press conference here, the Telugu Mahila leader found fault with the AP Police for filing false cases against the TDP leaders whenever Vijay Sai Reddy would make his politically provocative visits to different places. The same happened in Ramatheertham and now in Nimmada. Atchannaidu has not used any threats but only appealed to the rival candidate to think while leaving the final decision to him only. Based on these comments, the police filed a wrong case and arrested the TDP leader.

Ms. Anitha also objected to the manner in which TDP National Spokesperson Kommareddy Pattabhi was attacked and injured just for his constructive and well informed criticism of the Government’s corruption and illegalities. No action was initiated against the culprits in the attack till now. The police bosses would consider leaving their khaki uniform and start wearing the YCP blue dress instead. The Chief Minister was misusing the police force as if he was paying their salaries from his own pockets. Jagan Reddy should learn from former Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu how to run the administration for the benefit of one and all in the State.

The TDP leader deplored that while NTR and the TDP brought respect to the Telugus the world over, the YCP MPs and CM Jagan were mortgaging the welfare of AP people at the feet of the Delhi leaders. Mr. Jagan Reddy met with the Prime Minister and Amit Shah a number of times when the people innocently believed that AP would get funds and projects. But, it was now becoming clear after the Union Budget that all those visits of the AP CM were only meant for getting relief from his own personal cases. Because of the YCP MPs’ miserable failures, AP has become orphaned by the Central Government with no industries, no incentives and no funds for the backward regions.
