YSRC intensifies campaign for three capitals

YSRC intensifies campaign for three capitals

Even as the Amaravati to Aarasavilli padayatra by the farmers of the present capital region entered East Godavari district, the ruling YSR Congress party has decided to intensify the campaign for the three-capitals proposal of the Jagan Mohan Reddy government.

While conducting workshops, round-table conferences and debates across the state starting with north-coastal Andhra, the YSRC leadership on Monday held a meeting with all MLAs, assembly constituency coordinators and party district presidents to take the three-capitals plan to every nook and corner of the state.

Addressing the meeting, YSRC general secretary Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy told them that decentralization and comprehensive development is our only target and only mantra of the party hereafter.

He said the chief minister’s idea decentralization for the state's comprehensive development.

“Round table conferences are being led by the public to discuss decentralisation. Such discussions have already happened in Kakinada and Rajahmundry. We should take these discussions further,” he said.

Sajjala said the YSRC leaders should take the message strongly into the people that TDP president N Chandrababu Naidu’s Amaravati capital was nothing but a real estate venture for 29 villages. 

“It is a mirage which will never become a reality. Naidu has chosen Amaravati as the capital for his selfish reasons and to loot the state. On the contrary, Jagan has decided to decentralize the administration, hence wanted to set up 3 capitals in the state for all round development. Jagan has stuck to this decision keeping in mind the aspirations of the people of all the 3 regions,” he said.

The best example that public is with us is reflected in recent local body election results. But, opposition parties are still trying to incite the farmer community. 

“As part of their plan, TDP leaders incited violence in their Tirupathi Padyatra. Now, they are doing a padyatra for the same reason in Arasavelli. They even went to Rayalaseema and tried to incite violence. Now they are trying the same in Vizag,” he said.

“Our motive behind the three capitals initiative is to develop all the regions in the State equally. The only mean is to go deep into the public ourselves to seek their support on 3 capitals,” he said.

Stating that decentralization is for everyone, Sajjala said it is for social justice and development.

“Those who have social awareness and who want development will support our cause. Jagan recently asked us to have a discussion with the public. We have planned these round table conferences upon his orders,” he said.

He said every party worker should offer special poojas in temples across the state seeking Decentralization.

“There should be only one  echo – that is, we support decentralisation. Decentralization is the first step towards all round development,” he added.
