YCP pooh-poohs TDP poll manifesto
Metro news/ Hyderabad: Pooh-poohing the TDP manifesto for municipal polls, YSR Congress Party (YCP) has said Chandrababu Naidu has never kept his promise and is known for going back on the elections promises.
“The 1994 manifesto of TDP had three vital components of Rs 2 kg rice, subsidised power to farmers and prohibition which were done away with by Naidu after he took over the reins from NTR. This time around his manifesto has no relevance and many of them remained unfulfilled during his nine-year term,” said party senior leader Konatala Ramakrishna on Friday.

Naidu who has killed the spirit of local bodies by appointing special officials and humiliated elected representatives by not giving them even cheque signing powers in panchayats, mandals and Zilla Parishads has no moral right to speak on local bodies’ elections. He is notorious for going back on his promises. After imposing taxes in the name of subsidies and prohibition announced by NTR, Naidu has increased the price of rice and reduced the quantity and finally closed the scheme. Even prohibition was lifted after imposing taxes to a tune of Rs 2,000 crore and he started cheap liquor shops all over the State. He has promised moon during 1999 elections said that the government would take care of the education of girl child, deposit amount in the name of newly born girl child, announced sops to artisans but did not fulfill any of the promises. YCP has promised to provide tap connections to all white card holders but the scheme was not continued by the Congress government after his death.
