Naidu has been telling brazen lies only to wade through the padayatra, and is speaking without any substance - says YSRCP member Konathala Ramakrishna.

"Prodded by the Maro Prajaprasthanam Padayatra of Sharmila, which is drawing tremendous response, TDP President N Chandrababu Naidu, who is also on a padayatra, has been doling out promises which are impossible to fulfill". This is the popular opinion in the YSR Congress.
“Chandrababu Naidu promised that his first signature after coming to power would be on a waiver of farmers' loans but he
did not mention the mechanism as to how that promise would be fulfilled. He should clearly specify if it would be from the budgetary or not,” Party CGC member Konathala Ramakrishna told the media here on Friday.
Commenting further on Naidu's "promises", Ramakrishna said, "YSR had promised free electricity and it had been included in the budget. Naidu should tell if the present loans amounting to Rs 1,00,000 crores, after taking into account term loan, would be waived and include the State budget which less than that total sum. These are brazen lies Naidu has been telling only to wade through the padayatra and is speaking without any substance. He has been telling things which cannot be implemented. He should also tell whether the waiver would be from the State funds or the Central funds,”.
“YSR has never promised waiver of farmers’ loans. As a policy matter, he took up the matter with the Centre and got the waiver scheme on a national level,” he said.
The tumultuous response to Sharmila’s padayatra is nothing but the anger people have against the State Government and main opposition TDP as the two parties have been drifting away from people and reality, he said. Working to fulfill the ideals of YSR and under the guidance of YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, the party will take up all programmes in the interests of people, he said adding that Sharmila’s venture has baffled both Congress and TDP as they thought that the Party will be affected by confining Jagan to jail.
“When things went wrong, TDP leader in a knee jerk reaction went on promising things which are not practical and impossible to meet,” he said. (INN)
