Hyderabad | 7th July 2021
JSP chief and actor-turned-politician Pawan Kalyan today said that the main objective of his party was to"wipe the tears" of the people of Andhra Pradesh.
He made these remarks while addressing a meeting of the party's political affairs committee at the JSP's Mangalagiri headquarters.
At the meeting, Kalyan handed over a cheque of Rs 5 lakh to the family of one Somasekhar who succumbed to Covid-19 recently.
Speaking on the occasion, the leader said, "Members of my family, as well as some of my close friends, have lost their lives due to the pandemic. Our party, too, has lost many soldiers. I would like to take this opportunity to pay my tributes to all those who have succumbed to Covid-19. Amidst this health crisis, the JSP rank and file have collected crores of rupees for the party's insurance scheme and I am proud to say that everyone has been contributing to this effort. I have myself given Rs 1 crore to the insurance fund."
He then vowed to work hard to protect the democratic values of the country.
The meeting was attended by many representatives of the unemployed and student unions of the state who complained to Kalyan that Chief Minister Y S Jaganmohan Reddy was "cheating" them. They lambasted the CM for declaring, in the state's recently released employment calendar, that there were only 10,000 jobs in AP when there were lakhs who needed employment.
At this, the leader assured the unemployed that he was aware of the problems they were facing, and promised that his party would devise an action plan through which to address the same.
Speaking to the media after the meeting, he flayed Jagan for his "anti-people" ways, and thundered, "People residing near the CM's camp office are suddenly being forcefully evacuated without any notice on the pretext of security protocol. Many of those affected by this are people who have been residing in the area for three decades or more. Where exactly does the government expect them to go now? What is been done is utterly shameful. It is also condemnable that when the displaced persons are questioning the move, government officers are responding by using utterly offensive language, humiliating the already dependent people."
The JSP head then demanded that the Jagan regime take immediate measures to rehabilitate each of the 350 affected households before proceeding with the evacuation at Tadepalli, and threatened to stage protests outside the CM's residence if his demand was not met.
