Andhra Pradesh BJP says it will expose Jagan’s negligence on water disputes

YS-Jaganmohan-Reddy

Andhra Pradesh Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Somu Veerraju on Saturday said that the party will soon come up with a plan to expose the alleged negligence of Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy over violation of existing water pacts.

“Very soon we will strategise a clear movement to ensure the completion of all the pending projects across the state and expose the negligence of Reddy even as Telandana CM’s antics are causing injustice to AP by violating existing water pacts,” said Veerraju.

He alleged that the chief ministers of both the Telugu states have colluded for personal and political gains, resorting to newer controversies and thereby preparing to sabotage both Rayalaseema and the people of the state.

Terming Reddy’s letters to the Centre as a drama, the BJP leader asserted that the party will not tolerate any alleged loss caused by those missives to the state at any cost.

“Disregarding several non-controversial projects, only the Polavaram project is being brought to the fore to inflate cost estimations and move around to approve them. On the other hand both these CMs talk to each other at night for their selfish gains,” claimed Veerraju.

Continuing his tirade against the neighbouring state’s Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS), the opposition leader claimed that the foundations of the TRS have been jolted by the BJP’s ‘onslaught’, leading to TRS bringing Telangana sentient during elections to cause injustice to Rayalaseema people.

According to Veerraju, the water resources which Rayalaseema people were supposed to utilize are being wasted into the sea due to the poor understanding of Rao and Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP).

He claimed that the movement being devised by the BJP will not let even a drop of water due for AP go waste and make sure to complete all the pending projects.

 Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai has no faith in democracy and a parliamentary system of governance, Siddaramaiah, the Leader of the Opposition has said, adding the entire government, including Bommai, is behaving like a puppet of the RSS and working on their orders,

The Congress party will start a statewide protest against price rise from October 2 till the prices are reduced, he said.

The position of the Speaker is above politics and political parties. His/Her decisions should always be unbiased. What is the sanctity of the position, if the speaker behaves like a member of a political party, he said.

“New National Education Policy is an attempt to enable upper caste and RSS to enslave marginalised sections, Dalits and women. If we try to oppose, Speaker jumps to justify the government,” he charged.

The BJP government has decided to hand over KIADB land that was acquired at a cost of Rs 1.5 crore per acre amounting to Rs 175 crore to acquire 116 acres. The same land is now being given to CESS at just Rs 50 crore. The current market price is Rs 300-400 crore, he said.

“The prices have increased drastically after Narendra Modi became Prime Minister. Both Central and State BJP governments are looting from the common man. Narendra Modi government has increased the excise duty of Diesel from Rs 3.45 to Rs 31.84 and excise duty of Petrol is increased from Rs 9.21 to Rs 32.98. Let him reduce excise duty by 50 per cent. The Narendra Modi government has collected about Rs 23 lakh crore as excise duty in the last 7 years,” he said.
