YSR pet schemes in talk

YSR Congress Party on Tuesday said the speeches of Congress leaders displayed a sense of frustration and fear of defeat in the June 12 by-polls.

YSR Congress spokesperson Jupudi Prabhakar Rao told media here said that while addressing poorly attended public meetings at Nellore, Ongole and Tirupati, Ghulam Nabi Azad said that YS Jaganmohan Reddy would have become union minister and later chief minister had he been with Congress and the statement was ‘tantamount to admitting that those who leave Congress will be harassed’.

“Azad, who has been advocating that YSR only implemented Congress schemes, should also answer as to why other Congress ruled states were not implementing Aarogyasri, fee reimbursement and other YSR pet schemes,” he said.
