Nellore: Congress will return to power at the Centre in 2024 while the BJP’s strength will drop to 100 seats, said former Union minister and special invitee at the Congress Working Committee Dr Chinta Mohan.
Speaking to the media on Saturday, the former MP said the ongoing Bharat Jodo Yatra by Rahul Gandhi will enter Andhra Pradesh on October 17 and the country’s future will also follow the path of the yatra.
Pointing to the rousing reception to Gandhi’s yatra thus far, he said people were expressing their love and affection to the young leader.
Dr Mohan alleged that the BJP was dividing people on the lines of caste, community, language and region for political benefits, adding that Rahul Gandhi alone can unite the people of the nation.
Referring to the election for the post of AICC president scheduled for October 17, he said an honest and clean person who has faith in the Congress’ policies is set to emerge as the party’s president.
Dr Mohan also expressed concern over the drop in standards of education in the state, claiming that teachers were being used for activities other than academics. He also faulted doctors in government hospitals for their negligence in treating patients. He slammed the state government for renaming the NTR University of Health after former chief minister Y.S. Rajashekar Reddy.
“Andhra Pradesh has become Adani Pradesh. All sectors in the state, including ports, Vizag Steel, Genco, airports and others have been handed over to Adani,” he alleged. Dr Mohan also expressed concern over the high level of pollution in Krishnapatnam due to industries as well as the condition of roads in Nellore city.
“Not a single Dalit or OBC person benefited during the eight-year term of the BJP,” he said....
