Telugu Desam party national general secretary Nara Lokesh alleged that Chief Minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy has not visited the flood affected areas and met victims so far and he did not hold a review meeting with the officials on the flood devastation either. Addressing a mammoth gathering at Vinukonda as part of his Yuva Galam pada yatra, Lokesh said that the State Government announced that essentials would be supplied to the flood victims after the flood water receded. “Till that time, what should the flood victims eat? Does the Government want them to succumb to hunger,” Lokesh asked.

Expressing concern on negligence of the rehabilitation centers in serving quality food to the flood victims, he slammed that too poor quality food is being supplied to the flood victims who are in relief camps.

The TDP national general secretary said that Jagan Mohan Reddy is taking vicious pleasure in the suffering of the flood-affected. When Chandrababu Naidu was the Chief Minister, he used to visit the flood-hit areas much before the officials, he claimed. Observing that Jagan Mohan Reddy wants the youth to always remain poor, Lokesh said the Chief Minister has vitiated the future of the youth very badly by not filling up the vacant posts in various government wings. What happened to the Group-2 posts, vacancies in the Police Department and the DSC, he asked and pointed out that the existing Ambedkar Study Circles and BC Study Circles have been ordered to be closed. “The TDP, immediately after forming the coming government will pay Rs 3,000 per month to every jobless youth till he or she gets employment,” Nara Lokesh assured, adding that in five years 20 lakh employment opportunities will be created.

Maintaining that the farming community too is the worst-hit during the YSRCP rule, Lokesh said that facilities like input subsidy, drip irrigation and other benefits would be extended to the farmers by the coming TDP government. “On the one hand, salaries of the employees are not being paid on-time and on the other, this Government is not in a position to pay the pensions too,” he lamented.

The latest development is that the allowances of the police officials have been reduced drastically; the TDP national general secretary said and noted that this is exposing the poor financial condition of the State Government.

Before the public address, the farmers of Nuzendla mandal met Nara Lokesh at Uppalapadu and submitted a memorandum to him in which they raised several issues, including lack of drinking water facility.

Responding to them Nara Lokesh said immediately after the TDP is back in power all the pending projects would be completed and safe drinking water would be supplied to every doorstep.
