Nellore: Assuring that justice would be done to the affected people of AgriGold, YSR Congress party president Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy said that unlike Chandrababu Naidu government, his governance would look after the minorities.
Speaking at an event at Hasanapuram in Atmakur segment of SPSR Nellore district on Wednesday, Jagan said, “When our government comes to power with your blessings, the assets of AgriGold would be taken over and all the affected people would get back their money."
Chandrababu Naidu, in his party manifesto, promised to provide free education to minorities from KG to PG and working capital to Muslim traders but failed to fulfil any of the poll promises.
Chandrababu Naidu has been playing hide-and-seek with minorities, Jagan said, pointing out that he ignored Muslims when he wanted to get closer to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and appeased them to distance the BJP.
He said, “Since the Union Budget was presented, Naidu has not come out in the open to announce his stand but was only confined to leaking views through his friendly media."
Village secretariats would be set up to ensure that all welfare schemes are implemented for the minorities besides giving employment to locals.
“Education would be taken up on a priority basis. All professional courses would be entitled for fees reimbursement and under Amma Vodi scheme, the mother would get money for sending her two children to schools which would improve the standard of living.
Aarogyasri scheme would be applicable for treatment in big cities like Hyderabad, Chennai and Bengaluru. Pension will be paid during the period of recovery, he said.
On reservations, he pointed out that some technicalities were hindering the plan.
to provide reservations in jobs as the constitution does not allow reservations based on religion, however all weaker sections would be benefited from the Navaratnas.
Sincerity, integrity and credibility are the three qualities of a good politician which lack in Chandrababu Naidu and the system has to be changed by infusing good practices into politics by rejecting people who go back on the poll promises, he said.
