Dharmana Prasada Rao challenges TDP’s commitment to social justice

Must read

Minister of Revenue Dharmana Prasada Rao launched a scathing attack on the Telugu Desam Party (TDP), particularly targeting former Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu. During a media conference here on Wednesday, Minister Rao accused the TDP of failing to uphold social justice, especially for the backward classes, during their governance. Minister Rao highlighted the constitutional mandate for justice in three aspects but stressed the specific need for social justice, citing the backward classes’ desire for improved social status. Minister Rao argued that true social justice required both economic empowerment and political representation.
“Social justice is not possible with words alone. It doesn’t even come with the law if you ask me,” asserted Minister Rao, emphasizing the need for concrete actions beyond legislative measures. The Minister questioned Chandrababu Naidu’s commitment to the backward classes, citing the absence of any backward class representation in the Rajya Sabha during Naidu’s tenure. In contrast, Rao praised the current government’s efforts in appointing four backward class members to the Rajya Sabha within five years.
A challenge was extended to the TDP for a public debate on the issue, with Minister Rao confident in proving the YSR Congress Party’s dedication to constitutional power, economic independence, and social justice for the backward classes. Minister Rao criticised the TDP’s past promises and alleged deception in addressing the needs of the backward classes. He presented data on Direct Bank Transfers amounting to Rs 1,22,000 crore, claiming that financial aid had been directly deposited into the accounts of backward class individuals.
Addressing specific communities, Rao pointed to initiatives supporting Nayi Brahmins and Shetty Balijas, highlighting direct financial assistance and increased representation in various sectors. He urged the public to scrutinize the TDP’s claims of development, challenging their definition of progress. In a final appeal, Minister Dharmana Prasada Rao cautioned the public against falling for what he termed as “hypocritical words” from the TDP. He vowed to expose the alleged shortcomings of the opposition party and reiterated the commitment of the YSR Congress Party to social justice, political power, and economic independence. The challenge has set the stage for a potential showdown between the two political parties as the state approaches the upcoming elections.
