JSP Slams Jagan For Cheating Amaravati Farmers
Jana Sena Party (JSP) chief Pawan Kalyan, on Saturday, slammed the ruling YSRCP government saying that it had cheated farmers and people of the Amaravati region.
Pawan Kalyan was speaking as part of his tour in the Amaravati region, where he visited protest camps at Tulluru, Annavaram, Velagapudi, and Mandadam. He spoke to farmers who have been protesting for nearly about 2-months over the Jagan government's proposal to have 3 capitals — a legislative one (Amaravati), an executive capital (Visakhapatnam) and a judicial capital (Kurnool).
"The successive governments must implement the policy decisions of previous governments, making corrections if there are any mistakes. They should not reverse the decisions. Amaravati was decided as the capital city in 2014 itself," JSP Chief said.
Stating that he had taken up the issue with PM Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah, Pawan further said, "The situation has arisen where the Centre has to pay because of mistakes committed by the state government. No deliberation has taken place between the state government and the Centre on the shifting of the capital. If the Jagan government says that the decision has approval from the Centre, then ask them to show the written assurance."
Pawan also said that it is not possible in a democracy to say that the govt would do anything because it has the majority in Assembly. The actor-politician stated that the BJP and the JSP, which are in an alliance in AP, stuck to the decision taken by the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and its chief, N Chandrababu Naidu when they were in power.
Last month, the BJP and the JSP said that they had decided to form an alliance in Andhra Pradesh, in view of the situation arising out of the YSRCP government's proposal to decentralize the state's capital.
