YSR Congress party on Wednesday challenged the Telugu Desam Party government in Andhra Pradesh headed by chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu for an open debate on the fulfilment of promises made by the ruling party before the elections.Senior YSRC leader Bhumana Karunakar Reddy alleged the TDP had removed its election manifesto from the public domain and was taken off the party website. Naidu’s book “Manasulo Maata” also vanished from book shelves as they do not match to what the TDP leadership has been talking of late.
“We challenge Chandrababu Naidu to come for an open debate on the election promises he has fulfilled which will separate chalk from cheese as he has been going on a publicity spree that he has fulfilled 90% of the poll promises,” he said.Starting from waiver of loans of farmers and women groups to providing jobs and paying unemployment stipend, he has failed on all fronts and has been boasting that he has fulfilled all promises.
“He has been shamelessly asking people to give 25 parliament seats in the ensuing elections while his track record says that despite having 20 seats, including those he had bought from Opposition and that of the ally BJP put together, he could not get a single assurance given in the State Reorganisation Act done during his four year term of which he was part of the NDA coalition,” Bhumana said.
He pointed out that the TDP had not raised even once the issues of Special Category Status (SCS) along with Kadapa Steel Plant, Vizag Railway Zone, Vizag-Chennai industrial corridor, Petrochemical complex and others, while it was part of NDA coalition.
