TDP seeks Governor's intervention to stop Cong 'misrule' in AP
Hyderabad, May 5 (UNI) The opposition Telugu Desam Party today alleged that two years of Congress rule in Andhra Pradesh was marked by ''corruption, misrule and political vendetta'' and sought Governor Rameshwar Thakur's intervention for redressal of the grievances.
The party youth wing would chalkout a series of state-wide stirs at its state meet here tomorrow against the Rajasekhara Reddy Government, which was allegedly foisting cases on many TDP leaders, ''physically elminating'' TDP functionaries and selling away more than 74,000 acres of government land at throwaway prices to ''their henchmen,'' Youth Wing president T Srinivas Yadav told reporters after submitting a memorandum to the Governor.
The state had witnessed 3109 farmers' suicide and 391 starvation deaths by weavers in the last two years, the party claimed in the memorandum.
Complaining to the Governor that about 80 TDP functionaries were massacred under the Congress regime, he alleged that Congress Government had become a ''symbol of corruption'' in award of contracts for irrigation projects, purchase of medicines, postings and transfer of officials.
Referring to the alleged corruption in the Sripadasagar project, the party contended that instead of acting democratically and transparently, the government had registered criminal cases against TDP legislators for raising the issue in the State Assembly.
The Congress, which had promised to fill 2.50 lakh vacancies in government jobs as also 50,000 SC/ST and 70,000 BC backlog posts in the last elections, had disatisfied the unemployed youth, the party claimed.
