Why will people vote for YSRC govt again?: Venkatagiri MLA

TIRUPATI: Even as Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy began ‘Mission 175’ to win all Assembly segments in the state in the 2024 elections, his party’s MLA from Venkatagiri, Nellore district, is reportedly causing trouble for the party with his critical statements against the government.

During a meeting with volunteers and convenors in Ravuru on Wednesday, Venkatagiri MLA Anam Ramnarayana Reddy outlined the government’s pending and incomplete projects and lamented his helplessness. “What have we done to ask them for votes? What has the government done for the people in the previous four years?”, the MLA questioned.

He claimed that the state government was in a position where it had to promise that it would provide drinking water to villages if funds were provided under the central government’s Jal Jeevan Mission. He pondered why this government exists if the central government finances it?

“Potholes on roads remain unfilled. The roads are in poor shape. No drinking water was provided. None of the projects have been completed. Neither have we launched any work. Despite undertaking layout works, houses are not built." Anam commented while asking how can we expect the people to vote for this government again?

Expressing discontent over the non-completion of the SS Canal in the constituency, Anam recalled, “In the runup to the Tirupati parliamentary constituency by-election, state leaders claimed that they would take up the SS Canal construction. Voters cast their ballots in favour of the party based on those assurances, but that pledge has remained a nonstarter until now.”

MLA Anam claimed that the poor were given houses under the Indiramma housing scheme in the past, but that not a single house was built in this government unless Jagananna layouts were laid. Commenting on the public welfare programmes and direct cash benefit schemes for people, Anam noted, “Even the previous government had given pensions and other welfare schemes. Do such schemes receive public support?”
