If we win,we wont have to wait till 2014 : Jagan
YSR Congress chief Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy has said that his party would not have to wait till 2014 for general elections, if it won all the 18 Assembly and one Lok Sabha seats, by-elections for which were scheduled to be held shortly.
Jagan, on Tuesday, led his party’s protest against hike in the power tariff at the native place of Chiranjeevi.
Speaking on the occasion, Jagan said that his party would surely win all the by-elections. Through its clean-sweep, YSR Congress could cause the collapse of the Kiran Kumar Reddy government, he said. Mid-term poll would be immediately held, giving way for the new government, he told the gathering.
Jagan has called upon the people to give a verdict to giving vent to the troubles they have been undergoing. He alleged that the Congress high command was running the present government, with the remote control from New Delhi. He said that no one was able to predict when there would be power and when it would be cut. Instead of the power cables, it was the power bills that were giving electric shock, he said sarcastically.
Stating that the present government was reminding the TDP government under Chandrababu Naidu, Jagan alleged that the Naidu government had issued GOs ordering arrest of farmers, who failed to pay their bills. Stating that like Chandrababu Naidu, who ordered shooting down protesters, the Kiran Kumar government was also trying to harass the farmers and general public alike. Stating that the government has already hiked power charges twice, Jagan has demanded its immediate rollback.
