Vizianagaram: Former Chief minister N.Chandrababu Naidu accused chief minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy of crushing the poor under a huge tax burden. Naidu was addressing people during a road show from Bhogapuram to Cheepurupalli Mandal. "He has imposed taxes on every sector. Stamp duties, registration charges, garbage tax, property tax, house tax what not? They have simply painted schools and claimed that they have been developed. The SSC result has exposed their claims," he said
He said it is ironic that liquor baron Botcha Satyanarayana has been made minister for education. "How funny it is? Does he know anything about education? The scarcity of sand has badly affected the construction sector. Laborers have lost their jobs. Not even a single project was completed in Vizianagaram district. Thotapalli project, medical college, and many more were initiated by the previous TDP government. The present government couldn't complete even a single project," he said.
Naidu said the government had promised to release a job calendar every year. "Unfortunately our educated youth is forced to look for odd jobs in fish marts and mutton marts of the government. Jagan couldn't build a bus stand in Pulivendula. How he can construct three capitals for the state? The state has been plunged into darkness because of the government's faulty power policy. This is a kingdom of demons," he said. Naidu said Ashok Gajapathi Raju was targeted and tortured by the government. "Even I also was booked for visiting Ramateertham. We all should join hands and save our state from such politicians. People and workers of TDP need not scare of such goons. Let us join hands and teach them a strong lesson," Jagan said
