Flow of appeals to Lokesh during Praja Darbar

0

The Praja Darbar being organised by the Minister for IT, Electronics and Education, Nara Lokesh, is getting huge response from the people of Mangalagiri.

People from various parts of Mangalagiri are gathering at the residence of Lokesh to submit memoranda to him seeking assistance and hundreds of people gathered there early in the morning on Monday. Lokesh, who treats people of Mangalagiri as his own family members, is personally hearing the problems of everyone and promising them to resolve their problems at the earliest possible.

Anganwadis, teachers and others brought the problems that they are facing to the notice of Lokesh and made an appeal to him to resolve their issues. While Anganwadis wanted their salaries to be revised, the teachers sought transfers to the places of their choice and the jobless made an appeal to Lokesh to initiate steps to provide employment to them. Also, several others sought financial assistance to meet their medical expenses and the educational expenses of their children.

More important of all is that Lokesh received appeals on a largescale seeking justice as the YSRCP leaders, taking advantage of power in the previous government, had forcibly occupied their lands. Lokesh, who patiently heard the problems of everyone, promised to take proper remedial measures at the earliest possible.

Lokesh actively participated in the Praja Darbar for the second consecutive day on Sunday to have first hand information on the problems that the people of his home constituency, Mangalagiri, are facing.

Representatives of the Andhra Pradesh Veugu Teachers Association made an appeal to Lokesh that the services of the 2,193 employees who are now on contract basis, be regularised. A student, Jagadeesh, appealed to the Minister to initiate steps to clear the fee reimbursement dues to the Nuzvid college so that he will get back his polytechnic certificate from the college.

The non-teaching staff members of Acharya Nagarjuna University wanted their retirement age to be extended to 62 years while Sheik Nazina of Mangalagiri wanted financial assistance to her five-month-old nephew who is suffering from a strange disease. K Kiran Babu of Tadepalli wanted employment for him and his sister, Mounika, who had completed their MBA.

A physically challenged Mr B Srinivasa Rao of Tadepalli informed Lokesh that though he is now 40-year0old he did not get any kind of employment till now and wanted some kind of livelihood be provided to him. Yerramsetti Sriramulu and Bothala Maruthi Prasad of Radha Ranga Nagar of Vaddeswaram wanted some shelter be provided to them as they do not own a house till now.

Kolanukonda Rajeswari, an anganwadi helper from Vundavalli, informed Lokesh that the previous government did not give her promotion and requested Lokesh to direct the officials concerned to clear her promotion file. Lokesh, who has accepted all these appeals from the people, promised them to take necessary steps to resolve their problems at the earliest possible.

Minister for IT and Electronics, Nara Lokesh, on Saturday directed the officials of the Education Department to see to it that all the schools in the State are provided all kinds of basic facilities within one year.

At a review meeting held with senior officers of the Education department at his Vundavalli residence in Amaravati, the Minister for IT and Electronics directed the officials to complete all the pending works in all the schools within one year, including the incomplete phase-2 and phase-3 works taken up by the last government. Lokesh inquired about the quality of food being supplied to the students for mid-day meal and asked the Director of the Mid-day Meal Scheme, Ambedkar, to submit a detailed report on the steps to be taken to provide quality food to the students.

The Minister also directed the officers to conduct a detailed study on the policies adopted by the New Delhi Government on sanitation and maintenance of cleanliness inside the schools. Lokesh also directed the officials to submit a detailed report on how many students have migrated from the government schools to private educational institutions in the past five years and the reasons for their migration besides a detailed report on the drop-out rate in these five years. How far their respective schools are located to the students in their villages should also be included in these reports, he said.

Lokesh also sought the details on how many schools were closed in the State in these five years and the reasons for that. He specifically asked the Director of Libraries to find out where the best model library in the country was and submit a detailed note on that library after a review. The Minister for IT and Electronics directed the officers concerned to submit a comprehensive report on the quality and utilisation of content of BYJU’s and the IFB.

Lokesh specifically asked the officials about the steps being taken on providing the quality of coaching to the 82,000 students who are appearing for the !0th class exams this year besides a detailed report on the CBSE schools in the State and directed them to complete by end of this month the exercise of providing kits to the students. He also wanted the official machinery to complete by July 15 the process of supplying text-books, note-books and other material to the students of government junior colleges and expressed surprise on knowing that the former government had failed to supply this material to the students last year.

Lokesh inquired about the cycles purchased by the earlier TDP regime but were not supplied to the beneficiaries and wanted all the details on these cycles to be submitted to him soon. The Minister made it amply clear that hereafter the transfers of the teachers will be done in the most transparent way and all the facilities provided to the educational institutions by the earlier TDP regime will be revived.

0

Thanking Chief Minister, Chandrababu Naidu, on allocating the Human Resources Development (HRD), Information Technology (IT), Electronics and Communication besides the Real Time Governance (RTG) portfolios for him, the Minister, Nara Lokesh said on Friday that he is provided a very good opportunity by the Chief Minister to function with utmost responsibility.

In a press note released after the allocation of portfolios, Lokesh said that as the Minister for Panchayat Raj in the earlier government he was provided the opportunity to totally transform the profiles of the rural areas and as the Minister for IT and Electronics too he could invite several companies to the State to set up their units here thus providing employment to the youth.

“With the lessons that I have learnt from my experience as the Minister in the earlier Government, I am confident of functioning more responsibly and efficiently,” Lokesh said in the press note.

Recalling the promise that he has made to the people during his Yuva Galam pada yatra that he will bring in radical reforms in the education system from KG to PG, the Minister for HRD, IT, Electronics and Communication said that as the product of Stanford University he feels that it is his bounden responsibility to strengthen the education system in the rural areas.

Lokesh terms Naidu as master of welfare

Terming the Chief Minister, Chandrababu Naidu, as the master of welfare, the Minister for HRD, IT, Electronics and Communications, Nara Lokesh, said here on Friday that Chandrababu Naidu has clearly displayed his affection towards the poor by revising pensions.

With a single signature, the Chief Minister has increased the pension of the old from Rs 3,000 to Rs 4,000, the physically challenged from Rs 3,000 to Rs 6,000 and to those who are suffering from various kinds of serious diseases from Rs 5,000 to Rs 15,000 per month.

Hot Topic: The Pulse of Four Key Constituencies in Andhra Pradesh

The general elections in Andhra Pradesh have wrapped up, and the results are set to be revealed in a couple of hours. With a record turnout on May 13, anticipation is high, especially in four pivotal constituencies that have become the center of heated discussions. While most of exit polls have predicted the victory of TDP-JSP-BJP alliance, still the results are much awaited as there are multiple exit polls with varied predictions doing rounds.

Pithapuram: The Pawan Kalyan Impact

Pithapuram has captured attention due to Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan’s candidacy. Supported by the film industry, his campaign has been robust. YSRCP’s candidate, Geetha, has been bolstered by Jagan Mohan Reddy’s promise to make her Deputy Chief Minister if elected, making this constituency a key battleground. As of now most of the surveys predicted the victory of Pawan Kalyan but Janasena fans are keen on the majority Pawan is going to get. Undoubtedly he is the man of the match called 2024 AP elections.

Hindupur: Balakrishna’s Hat-Trick Attempt

Nandamuri Balakrishna seeks a third term from Hindupur, having won previously with significant margins. Confident of his victory, Balakrishna is aiming for a hat-trick. YSRCP’s candidate, BC leader Koduri Deepika, poses a challenge, but prevailing sentiments still favor Balakrishna. YSRCP attempted to do social engineering by consolidating BC votes this time. Fans are keen on this constituency and they are expecting Bala Krishna to join the cabinet this time.

Kuppam: A Stronghold Under Siege

Kuppam is the stronghold of Chandrababu Naidu. This time, Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy is determined to unseat him, promising unprecedented development and a ministerial position for local candidate Bharat. Despite YSRCP’s strong efforts, many believe dislodging Naidu remains a formidable challenge. A close contest would still be a moral victory for YSRCP.

Mangalagiri: Lokesh’s Redemption Bid

Nara Lokesh, who lost in 2019 by a narrow margin, is determined to reclaim Mangalagiri. Competing against Murugudu Lavanya, fielded by YSRCP, Lokesh is optimistic about a decisive win this time. The constituency’s outcome will be crucial for Lokesh’s political future. Lokesh has put his best efforts this time to secure victory from Mangalagiri.

As Andhra Pradesh waits for the final results, these constituencies are at the heart of the state’s political discourse, each holding significant implications for the involved parties and their leaders. In addition to these, Pulivendula assembly is keenly monitored to see whether any of the above four leaders will get more majority than Jagan this time.

Modi is world’s most powerful leader, says Lokesh

0

Describing the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, as the most powerful leader in the world, TDP general secretary, Nara Lokesh, on Wednesday felt that the country gets all kinds of benefits only if there is a stabilised Government at the Centre.

Addressing a huge gathering at Kalikiri in Pileru Assembly segment of Annamayya district as part of electioneering flanked by Modi, the TDP general secretary said that the people have witnessed how the country progressed well and marched on the developing path in the past 10 years. Showering all praises on Modi, he said that Modi is a guarantee for the whole country and only Modi knows how to create assets for the nation.

Terming Chief Minister, Jagan Mohan Reddy, as the cancer cell plaguing Rayalaseema, Lokesh said that the people from this region got carried away in 2019 elections as Jagan claimed that he is the son of this soil. In fact, Rayalaseema has moved 30 years backward with the destructive rule of Jagan, he remarked.

Praja Galam is formulated only to correct the prevailing conditions in Rayalaseema, Lokesh said and stated that Jana Sena chief, Pawan Kalyan, has sacrificed several things only to enter into an alliance with the TDP and the BJP. Pawan has openly and daringly declared that power is not important for him but the welfare of the people of the State, he said.

Vikasitha Bharat is the dream of Modi while Vikasitha Rayalaseema is the dream of TDP supremo, Nara Chandrababu Naidu and Pawan Kalyan, the TDP general secretary noted. Recalling how the journey of Andhra Pradesh has started in 2014 after the bifurcation of the State, Lokesh said that with the experience and the vision of Chandrababu Naidu Rayalaseema is marching on a much progressive path.

Informing the people about various welfare programmes implemented during the TDP regime like safe drinking water to every doorstep and establishment of Kia Motors company in Anantapur, Lokesh said that he is fortunate enough to hold the portfolio of Panchayat Raj which helped him totally transform the rural parts in Rayalaseema through Employment Guarantee scheme. “During my pada yatra, I have personally witnessed the problems being faced by the people in this region and the coming TDP allied NDA government will certainly focus on these issues and find a solution,” he said.

Lokesh also declared that Kadapa will be upgraded as the sports capital of Andhra Pradesh and sought the cooperation of the people here to realise this. Lokesh gave a call to the people to cooperate for “phir yek baar Modi circar” and assured Modi that the people of the State will certainly become partners in achieving the goal of winning 400 Lok Sabha seats in these elections.

Lokesh suspects YSRCP planning to create disturbances in polls

0

The people of the State who had bitter experiences in the past five years in this chaotic rule are now ready to vote for the TDP allied National Democratic Alliance (NDA) with huge majority, observed TDP general secretary, Nara Lokesh, on Saturday.

The umpteen conspiracies being hatched by Chief Minister, Jagan Mohan Reddy, will not stop the triumph of the NDA in these elections, Lokesh said while interacting with the residents of Samruddhi Apartments and the nearby areas in Tadepalle of Mangalagiri Assembly segment as part of his election campaign. Maintaining that these elections are very crucial for the future of the State, Lokesh suspected that the ruling YSRCP leaders will deliberately create some trouble in these elections.

“The people should patiently bear this and exercise their franchise,” the TDP national general secretary told them. Regretting that the YSRCP Government has turned the ganja cultivation as a cottage industry, Lokesh said that during his recent visit to Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu the people there too complained that ganja is being supplied to them from Andhra Pradesh.

The pressing of the button is after raising large amount of loans, he said, adding that the ruling party is imposing a heavy financial burden on those who are receiving these benefits in the shape of taxes. During the TDP regime globally famous industries like Kia, TCL, HCL and other companies launched their units in the State providing employment to lakhs of youth, Lokesh said and pointed out that not even a single industry has been launched in the State after Jagan came to power.

Jagan, who started his rule by demolishing the Praja Vedika in 2019, totally damaged the State with his reverse rule, he regretted. But Jagan has built a palatial bungalow in Visakhapatnam with Rs 500 cr totally violating the norms and the Centre has imposed a fine of Rs 200 cr on this as there is no permission for constructing this palace, he pointed out. Thus, Jagan has wasted a whopping Rs 700 cr public money for his personal gains and housing units would have been built for the poor in Mangalagiri with the same amount, he remarked.

Promising to focus on setting up industries across the State by the coming NDA government after a detailed study on the facilities available locally, Lokesh said that Information Technology (IT) industries will be set up in Visakhapatnam, pharma companies in Srikakulam, aqua industry will be developed in the Godavari districts, electronics in Chittoor district and automobile industry in Anantapur besides promoting the defense industries in different parts of the State. “Thus, we are planning to create 20 lakh jobs for the youth in the coming five years, almost doubling the State revenue,” he added.

Stating that the goal of the TDP is to transform the State into a trillion dollar economy, Lokesh made it clear that the coming TDP allied NDA government will certainly strive hard to achieve this target.

TDP demands immediate replacement of DGP, Intelligence chief

0

The famous mobile manufacturing company Apple has sent a security alert to TDP general secretary, Nara Lokesh, that his phone is being hacked.

The Apple company has sent an e-mail to Lokesh that efforts are being made to hack and tap his phone with some unidentified software and alerted him to take some precautionary measures. The TDP leaders on Friday said that only the YSRCP leaders are resorting to this criminal offence.

Senior TDP leader and former MP, Kanakamedala Ravindra Kumar, who is also a senior advocate, on Friday lodged a complaint with the Chief Election Commissioner (CEC). In a letter addressed to the CEC, Ravindra Kumar said that Lokesh’s I-Phone has been tapped using Pegasus software by certain unknown agencies.

Mentioning that similar alert was received by Lokesh a few days ago also, the Rajya Sabha member said that the Director General of Police (DGP), Rajendranath Reddy, and the Intelligence chief, PSR Anjaneyulu, have become virtual lackeys of the ruling YSRCP resorting to highly unethical and unlawful activities only to jeopardise the prospects of the NDA alliance partners in the ongoing elections to the Assembly and the Lok Sabha.

Rajendranath Reddy has been holding the position of the DGP only as the incharge for the past two years, Kanakamedala said in the letter and felt that this is violative of the Supreme Court orders. The TDP MP also said that Anjaneyulu has been acting as a henchman to the State Government and there are several allegations against him on his biased functioning.

Ravinda Kumar demanded immediate action by the Election Commission of India (ECI) against these officers. The MP also wanted neutral and reputed officers in these posts to ensure free and fair elections.

RK blocked Mangalagiri development with court cases, says Lokesh

0

Mangalagiri sitting MLA, Alla Ramakrishna Reddy, has created obstructions for the development of the area by filing cases before the courts and the seed access road connecting Amaravathi with Mangalagiri is the best example of this, said TDP general secretary, Nara Lokesh, on Sunday.

If Ramakrishna Reddy has any commitment to develop Mangalagiri he should immediately withdraw the cases pending before the courts, Lokesh said while interacting with the residents of RR Rachana Apartments and nearby areas in Kolanukonda as part of the election campaign in the Assembly segment. “I am promising you all that within a short period of the people’s government formed I will take measures to complete all the roads linking the State capital Amaravathi,” Lokesh said.

The TDP general secretary is confident that once the Amaravathi reconstruction is started by the coming TDP allied NDA government in the State, lakhs of youth will get employment opportunities. Lokesh made an appeal to the youth and intellectual community to think how the development of the State got totally damaged by electing Jagan Mohan Reddy as the Chief Minister, who sought one chance.

Jagan is interested in building palaces at every town than on developing the State, he remarked. Calling Ramakrishna Reddy as the Karakatta Kamal Hassan, the TDP national general secretary said that the MLA is misleading the people by claiming that there are no opportunities for the industries to be set up in Mangalagiri. If that is the case and if RK is correct how the Information Technology (IT) companies launched their own units in Mangalagiri during the TDP regime between 2014 and 2019, he asked.

Lokesh felt that commitment is needed to develop any area and said that though the TDP is not in power now he managed to get an IT company to set up its unit in Mangalagiri thus providing an opportunity to the youth to get 150 jobs. “I have implemented 29 various welfare schemes with my own funds but what RK who has enjoyed power for 25 years did for the area” he questioned.

Asking whether RK has taken at least 10 per cent of the developmental works till now that he has undertaken in the past five years except imposing heavy financial burden on the Tadepalli-Mangalagiri people in the name of upgrading it as a corporation, Lokesh said that if he is elected as MLA now he will take up more developmental works making the Assembly segment as number one in the country. Lokesh also promised to provide employment opportunities to the goldsmiths by setting up a gold cluster here.

This apart, Lokesh assured the youth that he will also provide maximum employment opportunities to them by inviting various IT companies to establish their units in this area. The residents of Kolanukonda wanted approach roads to be built connecting Amaravati which Lokesh promised to take up immediately after coming to power.

Observing that the ruling dispensation is deliberately creating some hurdles to the people here to prevent them from exercising their franchise, Lokesh made an appeal to them to go the polling booths and utilise the right to vote. The coming TDP allied NDA government is going to decide the future of the State and the people, he added.

Will inviting industries to provide jobs to youth, says Lokesh

0

“The majority that the people of Mangalagiri are going to give to me in these elections will give me great strength which will boost my morale to take up new projects in the coming days for the overall development of Mangalagiri,” said TDP general secretary, Nara Lokesh, on Saturday.

Lokesh had a meeting with the residents of the Pujitha Apartments and the nearby residential buildings at Tadepalli in Mangalagiri as part of the election campaign. “The inefficient YSRCP leader and sitting MLA, Alla Ramakrishna Reddy, has been making ameturish statements that industries will not come to Mangalagiri. If such an opportunity is not available here how Continental Coffee, Coca-Cola unit and Information Technology (IT) units were launched in Auto Nagar during the TDP regime, he asked.

Observing that due to the destructive politics in the past five years not even a single new industry has been launched in the State and not even a single job opportunity was created, Mr Lokesh said and felt that the YSRCP leaders who are now holding power do not have even a basic knowledge as to how to invite industries to the State. This is resulting in the youth migrating to other States in search of employment,” the TDP national general secretary said.

Observing that he had implemented 29 kinds of various welfare programmes in Mangalagiri in the past five years, Lokesh said that he was instrumental in setting up an IT company here to provide 150 jobs to the local youth. Lokesh is of the opinion that Mangalagiri has all the amenities to develop as one of the developed Assembly segments in the country and promised to establish a gold cluster once the people’s government of the TDP allied NDA is into power to provide jobs to 40,000 youth.

Implementing the welfare schemes by raising loans will only result in imposing a huge financial burden on the people, Lokesh said and felt that the development should always be taken up by creating assets but not by hiking taxes and prices that will only have a major impact on the common man. “I am confident that we will certainly reach this target and provide 20 lakh jobs to the youth by inviting various kinds of industries to the State,” he added. Lokesh also promised to allot lands in Amaravathi within two months of coming to power to those who have sacrificed their lands for the extension of the airport.

The residents of Pujitha Apartments and other buildings in the area narrated their cup of woes that the buildings owners are not giving them the necessary documents despite clearing all the dues. They also wanted Amaravathi to be developed as a cultural and heritage centre. Lokesh promised to resolve their issues immediately after coming to power and also an underground drainage facility will be provided in the area.

Lokesh confident of Jagan’s defeat

0

As the people of the State, who are fed up with the five-year atrocious rule, have already decided to confine Chief Minister, Jagan Mohan Reddy, to the Tadepalle palace, he is now trying to manipulate the public opinion with cheap politics, said TDP general secretary, Nara Lokesh, on Wednesday.

Since the YSRCP leaders have already come to a decision that it is not possible to win the polls they are now making attempts to lure the electorate by offering some gifts, remarked Lokesh in a press note released here after a truck carrying this material.

The local officials have seized a dump consisting of 52 varieties of material including wrist watches, speakers and cookers from a godown in Renigunta which belongs to Chandragiri MLA, Chevireddy Bhasker Reddy, that is to be distributed to the voters across the State, Mr Lokesh said.

No doubt, this dump of the YSRCP has been seized after a complaint has been lodged by the TDP, Lokesh said and asked who will seize the dump of the huge amount of money minted by Jagan by looting the natural resources like the sand, land and liquor, which is ready for distribution in these elections.

“Jagan should realise the fact that he will not win the elections even if he distributes one kg gold for every house as it is not possible for him to face the people who are very angry at him,” Lokesh remarked.

We’ll rescind GOs 5, 6 as they are brought in to grab lands, says Lokesh

Immediately after the TDP, Jana Sena and BJP alliance government is formed the ruling dispensation will take all possible measures for the welfare of the motor workers, TDP general secretary, Nara Lokesh, said on Sunday.

Lokesh had a meeting with the representatives of the Auto Workers Union, AP Workers Union, Auto Workers and the Auto Union at his residence at Vundavalli. Addressing all of them, Lokesh said that this Government has brought in the GOs 5 and 6 only to illegally occupy the valuable lands of the auto workers in Auto Nagar and promised to rescind these GOs soon after the alliance forming the coming government as these GOs are linked with the lives of lakhs of auto workers.

This apart, the Auto Nagar in Mangalagiri will be extended to allot shops and lands for the eligible beneficiaries besides providing better facilities there to transform it as the best Auto Nagar in the country, the TDP national general secretary said. Making it clear that those who are resorting to attacks on the TDP supporters in Auto Nagar will not be spared by the coming government, he promised to impart training to the auto workers to see to it that their revenue goes up.

When the auto workers brought their problems to the notice of Lokesh like the Andhra Pradesh Industrial Infrastructure Corporation (APIIC) has taken back 120 plots belonging to them and forcing the auto workers to vacate the shops if they are supporting the TDP, Lokesh assured them all their problems will be solved on a warfooting basis by the coming government. He also expressed concern that the auto workers are facing untold difficulties with the fines being imposed on them by this Government.

The steep hike in petrol and diesel prices too is hitting them hard, he said and promised to establish a corporation by the coming government for their welfare and to give them some lift financially. A separate parking zone will be set up at all the urban areas in the State, Lokesh said and assured them that they will not have to face any kind of problem or financial loss with the free bus facility for women. The demand for autos in Karnataka and Telangana still is the same, he said and promised to take steps to increase their revenue and no fines will be imposed on them besides bringing down the green tax.

The Chandranna Bheema will be of great relief for them, Lokesh said and made it clear that Amaravathi is going to remain the capital which will help this area to progress well to create job opportunities for the youth. Lokesh promised the AC Workers Union members to impart better training for them besides providing the necessary infrastructure.

Lokesh promised all of them to bring down the power charges and the taxes besides providing them the insurance facility under Chandranna Bheema. All the auto union and AC workers union representatives brought their problems to the notice of Lokesh who promised to resolve all these issues immediately after forming the government.

Coming TDP-Jana Sena govt will revive quota for BCs in local bodies, says Lokesh

Pointing out that the YSRCP Government has brought down the reservation for Backward Classes (BCs) in local bodies by 10 per cent, TDP general secretary, Nara Lokesh, on Sunday promised that the quota will be revived by the coming TDP-Jana Sena government.

Addressing a public meeting at Uravakonda in the combined Anantapur district as part of the ongoing Sankaharavam programme, Lokesh said that the coming TDP-Jana Sena combine government will spend Rs 10,000 cfr for the empowerment of BCs and Rs 5,000 cr will be spent under Adarana scheme. Stating that the Kia car company set up in Anantapur district during the TDP regime is a tremendous success, Lokesh said that the Kia cars manufactured here are being operated across the country.

Comparing Chief Minister, Jagan Mohan Reddy, with Kim of North Korea, the TDP national general secretary said that the only difference between the two is their hairstyle. “Kim had 17 palaces in North Korea while Jagan has six palaces in various parts of the country while Kim killed his own paternal uncle and everyone in the State knows about who killed Babai (paternal uncle),” he stated.

Regretting that the spurious liquor being sold in the State is claiming several innocent lives, Lokesh said Jagan has the habit of giving Rs 10 for the beneficiaries by pressing the button from one hand and taking back Rs 100 from them by pressing another button. He asked as to why the prices of various commodities have been revised several times.

Observing that Jagan has the credit of withdrawing over 100 welfare schemes, Lokesh said that TDP president, Chandrababu Naidu, and Jana Sena chief, Pawan Kalyan, have announced the Super-Six only after feeling the problems of the common man. Within a very short time all these schemes will be implemented to bring the people out of their problems, he remarked.

The increasing number of farmers suicides is an issue of serious concern, Lokesh said and stated that the TDP-Jana Sena government being formed within a short period, will extend Rs 20,000 to each farmer as a financial assistance. Reiterating that free bus travel facility will be provided for women, he said that all possible steps will be initiated for the uplift of the BCs.

Stating that Anantapur district has a special place in the heart of the TDP supremo, Chandrababu, he recalled that the voters of Hindupur have elected his uncle, Bala Krishna, twice. Those who were allotted lands in Anantapur district have invested in the companies owned by Jagan, Lokesh said that 8,000 acres have been acquired in the name of Science City but not even a single company has been set up yet.

Asking the TDP-Jana Sena activists to take the Super-Six schemes to every doorstep, Lokesh said that the services of those who are working hard for the success of the combine will be recognised and they will be given nominated posts in the coming TDP-Jana Sena government.

Presidents of various organisations, trust board members of different temples in the area and many panchayat ward members besides others on Sunday joined the TDP.

All of them are unanimous in their opinion that the days of the YSRCP are numbered and very soon the TDP-Jana Sena combine is going to form the government to develop the State in all sectors. Heartily welcoming all of them into the TDP fold, Lokesh called upon them to work together to transform Mangalagiri as a model Assembly segment in the State.

Several local TDP leaders, including coordinator of Mangalagiri segment, Nandam Abadhiah, Potineni Srinivasa Rao, Mummidi Satyanarayana, Tota Parthasaradhi and others were present on the occasion.

Coming war is between egoistic Jagan and self-respect of people, says Lokesh

0

The upcoming battle coming in a couple of months is between egoistic Chief Minister, Jagan Mohan Reddy, and the self-respect of the people, said TDP general secretary, Nara Lokesh, on Sunday.

“How Jagan, who says that the coming election is between the poor and the feudals, can call himself as poor since he has assets worth lakhs of crores, the chappals that he wears are worth Rs 1 lakh, drinks Rs 1,000 worth of water bottle and who owns palaces in Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Tadepalle, Idupulapaya and Visakhapatnam,” Lokesh asked while addressing a huge public meeting in Visakhapatnam East Assembly segment during his ongoing ‘Sankharavam’. Terming Jagan as a blatant liar, Lokesh felt that the Bharathi Cements which is set up by looting the public money belongs to the people but not to Jagan.

Lokesh feels that the foundations of the palaces owned by Jagan are also laid on highly corrupt money and thus they too belong to the people. “The TDP-Jana Sena government which will be in place in another two months will seize these palaces and hand them over to the public,” Lokesh said.

The Yatra movie produced spending crores of rupees is not being watched even by the YSRCP MLAs, the TDP national general secretary said that and stated that the last journey for the YSRCP MLAs has begun. Jagan has silently grabbed the Krishnapatnam and Gangavaram ports resulting in 10,000 employees of the Krishnapatnam Port losing their jobs. “Lands, hillocks and ports are no exception for these YSRCP leaders to occupy illegally,” he remarked.

The revenue of Jagan through the sand mafia is Rs 3 cr per day and he has looted Rs 5400 cr in these five years, he said, adding that after Jagan came to power the cost of sand has gone so high. Observing that Jagan has affection towards prisoners, he stated that Rs 2,000 each is being paid to the prisoners every month while the BC students are not being paid even the cosmetic charges.

Pointing out that the Videsee Vidya scheme implemented during the TDP regime was revoked by Jagan, he promised to reintroduce all the welfare schemes that were in force during the TDP regime, including the Videsee Vidya, by the coming TDP-Jana Sena government. The prices of all commodities, including the power charges, RTC fare and house tax, have been increased drastically, Lokesh said.

TDP supremo, Nara Chandrababu Naidu, and Jana Sena chief, Pawan Kalyan, have taken the initiative to announce the Super-Six only after having experienced the real problems being faced by the common man, he said. “I am assuring you all that all the schemes mentioned in this Super-Six will be implemented and I will personally take this responsibility,” he said.

In the name of making Visakhapatnam as the capital city for the State, these YSRCP leaders are grabbing the expensive lands in the city, Lokesh said and pointed out that Jagan has built a palace in Rishi Konda with a whopping Rs 500 cr. “Still he is not staying here while the ruling party leaders like YV Subba Reddy and Vijayasai Reddy, too are active in illegally occupying the costly lands here,” Lokesh said.

Recalling how Chandrababu, as the then chief minister of the State, had come to the rescue of the locals when the Hud Hud cyclone had hit the city, Lokesh mentioned how Visakhapatnam was developed during the TDP regime. Promising the people that the TDP will stand by its promises made to the people, Lokesh called upon the gathering to work for the success of Velagapudi Rama Krishna with a thumping majority.

“Velagapudi does not know what is corruption and he is still using some outdated model phones. Thus, he deserves to be your leader to work for your progress,” Lokesh said. Stating that the coming two months are very crucial, Lokesh called upon the TDP and the Jana Sena activists to be among the people to bring awareness among them. Visakhapatnam (East) should stand on top three in the majority that the combine is going to win, he added.

0

TDP general secretary Nara Lokesh, will adopt the handloom sector once the TDP-Jana Sena combine is into power after the upcoming elections, said Brahmani, wife of Lokesh in Mangalagiri on Saturday.

Nara Bhuvaneswari, wife of TDP supremo, Chandrababu Naidu, on Saturday toured Mangalagiri Assembly segment as part of her ‘Nijam Gelavali’ (truth should prevail). Mrs Brahmani accompanied her during her visit and both the women leaders said that Lokesh has taken up a programme to save the handloom sector beyond any political considerations. Wearing a handloom saree during her visit here

Bhuvaneswari made it amply clear to the locals that she respects the handloom sector and the handloom workers.

Brahmani made it clear that she will always extend her full cooperation to her husband, Lokesh, during his endeavor to bring the past glory to the handloom sector. She visited the latest weaving machines and the handloom dyeing shed at Atmakur and inquired from the weavers about their problems that they are facing.

When they said that they are getting some health issues during the dyeing process, Brahmani said that soon a permanent solution will be found to their problems. Bharhmani also made it clear that proper prices will be offered for their products soon as Lokesh will be adopting the whole sector and measures will be taken to ensure that there are no middlemen for marketing their products.

Brahmani also visited the Sri Sakthi training center launched by Lokesh and those who are managing the centre briefed her that already thousands of persons have undergone training at the centre in 47 batches. She praised the efforts of those who are heading the centre and termed it as a great effort.

It’s TDP which transformed Vizag as City of Destiny, says Lokesh

0

Visakhapatnam which was once known as the economic capital of Andhra Pradesh and the city has been transformed as City of Destiny during the TDP regime, said Nara Lokesh, TDP general secretary, on Saturday.

Visakhapatnam was the job capital of India during Chandrababu Naidu’s regime but now it turned into ganja capital, said Mr Lokesh while addressing a public meeting at Vepagunta in Pendurthy Assembly segment of Visakhapatnam district during his ‘Sankharavam’ programme. Vizag was the most happening city when the TDP was ruling the State but now it has become the most miserable city, Lokesh stated.

When Chandrababu Naidu was the chief minister of the State, he strived hard to set up several Information technology companies in this city and also units established by the Adanis like Adani Data Centre and AM Teaser which manufactures medical devices after the YSRCP came to power the local leaders are focussing only on encroaching lands, kidnaps and looting besides illegally occupying the tanks, Lokesh said. Before the 2019 elections, the YSRCP leaders trumpeted on Nava Ratnas but after coming to power they made it as Nava Mosalu (nine defrauds), he remarked.

Recalling the recent call given by Chief Minister, Jagan Mohan Reddy, for his party workers asking them to get ready to fold their shirts, Lokesh said “When I said that my party activists are also getting ready for folding the chairs, a Minister in the State Cabinet, Ambati Rambabu, said that it is not chair but a throne. I am now telling you that our people are ready to dethrone Jagan,” he remarked.

Stating that Jagan has not implemented even a single promise made to the people like granting of monthly pension for SC, ST, BC and minority women after they cross 45 years of age, and announcing job calendar every year and filling of all vacant posts in different government wings, Lokesh said that learning about the problems being faced by different sections the TDP supremo, Chandrababu, has announced the Super-Six. The Super-Six has been announced to chase out the psycho rule, to solve the problems being faced by women, he said.

Observing that Jagan is making a mockery of the Super-Six, Lokesh said that the Almighty has already made the draft ready for dethroning Jagan. The YSRCP is not getting even candidates to contest the polls and this clearly indicates the future of this party, he added. A leader from the neighbouring district has been asked to contest from Visakhapatnam while Chevireddy Bhaskar Reddy, who is known for various things, is the candidate from Ongole Lok Sabha constituency, he said.

Anil Kumar Yadav, who is rejected by the Nellore voters, is being fielded from Narasaraopet while Ambati Rayudu, who has been asked to contest from Guntur has run away from the YSRCP and this party is not getting candidates for 75 of the 175 Assembly segments, he stated. Before the last Assembly elections, Jagan has said that BCs are his backbone but now several innocent persons from the BC community are mercilessly being murdered and the bodies being door-delivered, he said.

Narrating several such incidents, Lokesh felt that Jagan is scared of him. “When I was on my Yuva Galam pada yatra, GO Number One was brought in and mike was snatched from me. But I made it amply clear that there is no question of giving in,” he said. Maintaining that attempts are being made to arrest him as he is exhibiting the red book at every meeting, Lokesh said that he never moves behind curtains.

Flatly denying the statements that if the TDP is back in power the volunteer system will be wound up, Lokesh clarified that in fact, the party is planning to strengthen the system. It is the TDP that introduced various welfare schemes like Rs 2-a-kg rice scheme by the Late NT Rama Rao and Deepam, Pasupu Kunkuma and Chandranna Bheema by Chandrababu Naidu, he added.

YSRCP MP, Vijaysai Reddy, has completely looted Visakhapatnam city and this Government is taking away every rupee generated by the Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation (GVMC), he said. This Government has stooped so low that even the 1500 PhD posts in Andhra University too are sold for a premium and the Rs 200 cr University Grants Commission (UGC) grant too is looted, he said.

When the Hud Hud cyclone hit this area, Chandrababu Naidu, in his capacity as the chief minister, rushed here even neglecting his own family members, he said that Chandrababu did not spend even 10 minutes at a function celebrated at home during that time, he recalled. Making it clear that the coming TDP-Jana Sena government will implement all the promises made to them till now, Lokesh called upon the people to elect the alliance candidate to enable the upcoming TDP-Jana Sena regime to implement them.

This poor condition of roads reflect dirty rule of Jagan, says Lokesh

0

On passing through the road from Palakonda to Kurupam in Srikakulam district on Tuesday to take part in the ongoing ‘Sankharavam’ programme, TDP general secretary, Nara Lokesh, said that this poor condition of roads clearly reflect the dirty rule of Chief Minister, Jagan Mohan Reddy.

Later, in a press note released on the bad condition of the roads in the State Lokesh said “when I inquired from the local people there they said that the contractor left the works half-finished as the State Government did not pay his bills.” At least Rs 1.8 lakh cr dues are to be cleared for the contractors who completed their works in various parts of the State and thus they are refusing to complete even the works which are still pending, Lokesh said.

Lokesh said that the ruling party leaders are interested only in looting the State rather than development. What else is needed which clearly reflects the dirty rule of Jagan, the TDP general secretary said in the press note.

YSRCP psychos getting scared of red book, says Lokesh

0

Maintaining that North Andhra is TDP’s fortress, party general secretary Nara Lokesh said that Srikakulam is the ground for struggles.

Thanking profusely all those who gathered for the huge public meeting at Itchhapuram of srikakulam district, Lokesh said that all the psychos of the ruling YSRCP are now getting scared of the red book. Regretting that North Andhra has been turned into a centre for ganja after the YSRCP came to power, Lokesh fondly recalled that this land has a great history of giving birth to renowned personalities like Garimella, Sardar Gouthu Latchanna and Yerran Naidu.

“I really feel proud to begin my Sankharavam programme at Itchhapuram,” Lokesh asked Chief Minister, Jagan Mohan Reddy, for which he is ‘Sidhham’ (getting ready). Perhaps, Jagan must be getting ready to go to jail, he said and asked the people whether they are ready to send him to jail.

“Are you ready to send Mr Jagan home who is responsible for the murder of the BC leader, Amarnath Goud, and the Dalit, Dr Sudhakar besides several minorities. Jagan always says he is ‘Sidhham’ (getting ready). For what he is getting ready,” Lokesh asked in a sarcastic manner. Jagan is responsible for the killing of his own paternal uncle, he said and asked whether he is getting ready to finish off more family members and damage the State totally.

Regretting that the local MRO, Ramaiah, was done to death by the YSRCP leaders as he was not cooperating with them in land encroachments, Lokesh said that the agricultural assistant, Pujitha, was forced to commit suicide in Bapatla as she questioned the theft of fertilisers. Pointing out that the junior engineer, Rama Krishna, handed himself to death in Vizianagaram as he strongly opposed the local YSRCP’s misdeeds, Lokesh said that Jagan has now started a new drama in the name of my SCs and my STs.

Asking Jagan as to why he has not fulfilled the promise made to the unemployed youth to fill 23,000 posts through the DSC, Lokesh felt that the ruling party leaders started feeling unnerved on observing the massive response to ‘Yuva Galam’ among the youth. Recalling that 1.7 lakh posts have been filled during the TDP regime, Lokesh promised to fill all the vacant teacher posts every year by the coming TDP-Jana Sena government.

How Jagan, who wears Rs 1 lakh worth of chappals and who consumes Rs 1,000 worth of water bottle, can understand the problems of the poor, he asked. When there is no security for his own sister how others can expect protection in this Government, Lokesh felt. The Chief Minister is giving Rs 10 each to the beneficiaries of various welfare schemes by pressing the blue button but taking back Rs 100 from them through the red button, he remarked.

Stating that the common man is being squeezed through high bus fares, power charges and other taxes, Lokesh said that TDP supremo, Chandrababu Naidu, and Jana Sena chief, Pawan Kalyan, have announced the Super-Six only to provide relief to the people. Assuring the gathering that 20 lakh jobs will be provided in five years once the TDP-Jana Sena forms the next government, he said Rs 3,000 per month will be paid each as unemployment allowance till the youth get jobs.
