Vijayasai dares Oppn alliance to include spl tag in manifesto

Must read

YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) candidate for the Nellore parliamentary seat, V Vijayasai Reddy, has issued a bold challenge to the coalition formed by TDP-JSP-BJP, urging them to include a promise in their manifesto assuring the people of Andhra Pradesh that the Central government will grant Special Category Status to the state for 10 years.
In a statement on Sunday, the Rajya Sabha member threw down the gauntlet to the tripartite alliance, suggesting that they are reluctant to make such a commitment due to their allegiance to the alliance rather than prioritizing the progress of Andhra Pradesh. “But they would not do so because they want their alliance more than the progress of AP,” remarked Vijayasai Reddy. He urged voters to support a party that prioritises the interests of Andhra Pradesh. Vijayasai Reddy himself is contesting for the Nellore Lok Sabha seat under the YSR Congress banner.
In a separate social media post, the YSR Congress leader alleged that certain prestigious private schools are backing the TDP. “It appears that there is a significant lobby of prestigious private schools supporting the TDP. Following the success of Nadu-Nedu, these numerous private schools are finding it challenging to impose high fees on parents. They are seeking a resurgence at the expense of Government Schools,” he stated.
Nadu-Nedu is a programme initiated by the YSR Congress government aimed at enhancing learning outcomes and reducing the dropout rate in all government schools by implementing various measures, including the modernization of school infrastructure. The state is gearing up for simultaneous elections to the 175-member state Assembly and 25 Lok Sabha seats, scheduled to take place on May 13. The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) has allied with the BJP and the Pawan Kalyan-led Jana Sena Party in an attempt to challenge the ruling YSR Congress.
In the 2019 elections, the YSR Congress secured a resounding victory, wresting power from the TDP by capturing 151 Assembly seats and 22 out of 25 Lok Sabha seats.
