People of Andhra Pradesh who are above 45 years of age can rejoice if the YSR Congress Party comes to power in the next elections, for party chief Y S Jaganmohan Reddy has promised that pensions would be provided to all those above the age of 45 years if his party came to power.
On the 18th day of his walkathon in Kurnool district on Sunday, Jagan showered other promises, too, upon the people of Andhra Pradesh. Among the notable ones is paying Rs 15,000 per year to mothers of school-going children. Jagan alleged that students were not getting scholarships under the present TDP government, and his scheme would rectify the anamoly.
Recalling Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu's poll promise of recognizing the Rajakas as SCs, the YSRCP leader asked Naidu whether it was justified to deceive the people by not fulfilling the election promises.
The YSRCP chief said that he, on the contrary, would bring back the late YSR's golden era after coming to power.
