Naidu ridicules CM’s job scheme

Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu on Saturday accused Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy of cheating the unemployed youth by making bogus statements of providing 15 lakh jobs.

Talking to media persons at NTR Trust Bhavan after swearing in ceremony of Telugu Nadu Trade Union Council president G Rambabu and 135 other office bearers, Naidu reminded that the cabinet ministers themselves have raised doubts over the generation of employment in the recently held Collectors’ conference. He asked how the government could provide 15 lakh jobs within next three years when the industrialists are moving to other states due to plethora of problems in the state.

Naidu demanded that the government make its stand clear on job security of contract employees before announcing of 1.16 lakh jobs by this year end. He alleged that the `middlemen’ in Congress party would benefit from the Rajiv Yuva Kiranalu scheme. He said that the TDP would launch unrelenting fight to protect the interests of employees.

The TDP chief stated that YSR Congress president Jagan Mohan Reddy would dissolve his party if the Congress party lifts all cases against him. Stating that Jagan was waiting for an opportunity, he said once the Congress withdrew cases, he would stop targeting it and merge his outfit in the parent party.

Naidu also predicted that just like Praja Rajyam Party, the Telangana Rashtra Samithi would also merge in Congress party soon. He said that the Chief Minister and Pradesh Congress Committee president Botsa Satyanarayana were focussed on politics and have no time to resolve the people’s problems. (INN)
