Removing disparities in society is on top of the combined mini-manifesto of the TDP and the Jana Sena, said former minister and TDP politburo member, Yanamala Ramakrsihnudu, on Monday.
Briefing media persons after the combined meeting of the manifesto committees of both the TDP and the Jana Sena, Ramakrsihnudu said that Monday’s meeting is only a preliminary one. Pointing out that the TDP has already released its mini-manifesto in the name of ‘Babu Surety-Bhavishyathuku Guarantee’ (Babu surety is guarantee for the future), the TDP politburo member said that the TDP is already on the campaign on Super Six in this manifesto.
Making it clear that the TDP and the Jana Sena alliance has been finalised, Ramakrishnudu said that the TDP and the Jana Sena proposed six points each to be included into the manifesto. “Combining both we have prepared the mini-manifesto and it will be sent for the approval of the committee,” he added.
Expressing confidence that all these points will be useful for the people, Ramakrsishunudu made it clear that the main aim of both the parties is removal of disparities in society, financial system should be improved, better welfare for farmers and people in all walks of life should become stronger. This is the reason Rs 15,000 financial assistance for each child under Talliki Vandanam per annum has been proposed, each girl who attained 18 years of age will get Rs 1500 per month under Aada Bidda Nidhi and three free cylinders for every family per year under Deepam scheme besides free bus travel facility for women, he explained.
Also, 20 lakh youth will be provided employment opportunities under Yuva Galam, Rs 3,000 to be paid per month as unemployment allowance for every jobless youth till he or she gets employment, Yanamala said. The proposals made by the Jana Sena like 20 per cent subsidy to small and medium industries besides Ankura industries amounting to Rs 10 lakh maximum, has been accepted and included in the manifesto.
Farmers and tenant farmers will get Rs 20,000 financial assistance every year and aqua farming, horticulture will be encouraged through extending subsidies, Ramakrsihnudu said. Each house will be provided safe drinking water connection under Intintiki Manchi Neeru scheme and a legislation will be enacted for the safety and security of Backward Classes (BCs), he said.
Keeping in view the welfare of the common man, taxes on all commodities, including power, will be brought down and basic amenities will be provided, Yanamala said, adding that steps will be taken to improve the State’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Through the Poor-to-Rich scheme the P4 (public, private, people partnership) will be implemented to make the poor rich with the aim of achieving at least double income in five years.
Declaring Amaravathi as the capital, all the regions in the State will be developed while continuing the construction of the people’s capital of Amaravathi, the former minister for Finance noted. The manifesto aims at realising the dream of the poor to own a house and also coming to the rescue of the construction industry besides revising the minimum wages for the welfare of the workers, he added.
The Monday’s meeting resolved to check migrations, Yanamala said and felt that inclusive growth is necessary now. He felt an immediate need to remove the imbalances as poverty and disparities are on the rise.
Jana Sena member of the committee, Mutha Sasidhar, said that the meeting is conducted under a friendly atmosphere. When Chief Minister, Jagan Mohan Reddy, has been claiming ‘why not 175’, the people are making fun of him and are now repenting as to why they have given 151 seats for him in the last elections, he said.
Jagan is taking the people for a ride by saying that all the promises made to them have been fulfilled, Sasidhar said, adding that the Jana Sena made six proposals which have been made on the appeals received when Jana Sena chief, Pawan Kalyan, has taken part in various programmes in the State.
The Jana Sena resolved that Amaravathi will continue to be the capital of the State, he said and stated that providing employment to the construction workers, transforming the jobless youth as industrialists through Sowbhagya Padham scheme, improving the financial condition of the farmers and tenant farmers by encouraging farming, ‘Our Andhra Pradesh-Our Jobs’ have been suggested by the Jana Sena which are included in the manifesto.
Regretting that all sections of youth are now the suffered in the YSRCP rule as there are no employment opportunities, Sasidhar said that all the issues that are finalised on Monday will be sent to Pawan Kalyan and the chairman of Political Affairs Committee of the party, Nadendla Manohar.
“We are going to promise the youth a much better future for them and the main manifesto will be formulated keeping in view the welfare of all sections of society,” Sasidhar observed. Besides Ramakrishnudu, P Ashok Babu and Kommareddy Pattabhiram participated in the meeting on behalf of the TDP while D Vara Prasad, Prof K Sarath Kumar and Mutha Sasidhar were present for the Jana Sena.
