Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu on Saturday said there was a huge wave in favour of the TDP across the State, thanks to the good governance and welfare schemes of his government.
Developmental activities would continue without any break only if the TDP was voted to power again, Mr. Naidu said while addressing public meetings at Itchapuram, Narasannapeta, Rajam, Etcherla and Srikakulam.
During his whirlwind tour of the five Assembly constituencies in the district, Mr. Naidu exuded confidence that the TDP would win at least 150 of 175 Assembly seats in the State.
‘Jagan unfit for top post’
Lashing out at YSRCP president Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy, the Chief Minister said the Opposition leader was unfit to be at the helm as he had many criminal cases pending against him.
Seeing a conspiracy to destablise the party and the State, he said, “Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao are providing financial assistance to Mr. Jagan Mohan Reddy to help him win the elections by hook or by crook.”
“The ₹2,000 pension scheme, distribution of ₹10,000 to DWCRA women members under the ‘Pasupu Kumkuma’ scheme, NTR housing, Anna Canteen, Mukhyamantri Yuvanestham and other welfare programmes will ensure victory for the TDP,” Mr. Naidu asserted.
Claiming that farmers were happy with the loan waiver and other schemes meant for their welfare, Mr. Naidu said, “The TDP government has accorded top priority to irrigation in Srikakulam district. Vamsadhara Phase II and modernisation of Nagavali will improve the irrigation facility in the district and check migration too.” During the roadshow at Rajam, Mr. Naidu urged people to vote for Kondru Murali Mohan, and said he had given a new look to the industrial town when he was the Minister.
Mr. Murali urged the Chief Minister to take steps for the revival of sick industries in and around Rajam.
Reviewing the party prospects later, Mr. Naidu suggested TDP State president, Energy Minister and Etcherla candidate K. Kala Venkata Rao, Srikakulam candidate Gunda Lakshmi Devi and others to reach out to maximum number of beneficiaries and ensure the victory march of the TDP in the district.
