The ruling Telugu Desam Party in Andhra Pradesh, which has been under constant attack from the main opposition YSR Congress party for its failure to implement the poll promises, has launched a counter-attack on the latter’s president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy personally.
TDP official spokesman Varla Ramaiah said the TDP government does not have to take suggestions from a person facing corruption charges.
Coming down heavily on the YSRCP leaders, Ramaiah advised the former to play as a constructive Opposition party instead of leveling baseless charges against the ruling party and its president and Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu.
Stating that “power does not mean to loot the State”, Ramaiah said the YSRCP leaders have not learnt lessons despite drubbing in the elections.
“The government cannot take suggestions given by an accused in corruption cases,” the TDP leader said, adding the YSRCP is trying to create confusion in the minds of people though farmers were coming forward to give their lands for the development of new capital for the State.
Ramaiah further warned that YSRCP leaders will have to face ire of the people if they tried to provoke them by propagating false information on loan waiver. The AP government has worked on the beneficiaries of the loan waiver and the farmers would get benefit in a day or two, he added. The YSRCP leaders are desperately seeing the support of the people and popularity of Chandrababu Naidu, Ramaiah said.
