Sharmila will be AP CM, if Cong comes to power!

All India Congress Committee president Mallikarjun Kharge announced that if the Congress was voted to power in Andhra Pradesh in the coming assembly elections, PCC president Y S Sharmila would become the chief minister.

Kharge, who launched the party’s election campaign at a public meeting, named as Nyaya Sadhana Sabha, at Anantapur town, said Sharmila, sister of present chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy, is the right choice for the CM post in AP.

“Andhra Pradesh had produced the most popular leader like Y S Rajasekhar Reddy, who made the entire country proud with his welfare schemes. His daughter is now heading the State Congress. One day or the other, she will become the chief minister of Andhra Pradesh,” he said.

The Congress party, which came to power in Telangana with its six-guarantees agenda, has come out with one guarantee for Andhra Pradesh, where it has little chances of coming to power.

Kharge said the Congress, if voted to power in Andhra Pradesh in the coming assembly elections, would extend financial assistance of Rs 5,000 per month to every poor household in the state.

He said the guarantee, which was named as “Indiramma Abhayam,” would be implemented for all the poor sections of the society.

“We shall definitely implement the scheme in letter and spirit. It will have an indelible imprint on the hearts of the people,” he said.

He alleged that Andhra Pradesh was meted out injustice for the last 10 years, as both the Telugu Desam Party and the YSR Congress party had failed to get any funds for the development of the state.

The AICC chief said the Prime Minister had conveniently ignored granting special category status to AP and neglected Polavaram project.

“Unfortunately, neither the TDP nor the YSRCP had the guts to question Modi,” he criticised.
