Ongole (AP): The war of words between TDP
leaders and Congress MP Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy continued today
with the latter regretting that his father Y S Rajasekhara
Reddy is attacked even though he is no more.
"One year has passed since our beloved leader Rajasekhara
Reddy died. But they (TDP) are attacking him even today. They
forgot the basic courtesy that it is not good to attack some
one who is no more. It shows the fall in political values,"
He was speaking at Pedda Dornala village in Prakasam
district during his ongoing `Odarpu yatra`.
Maintaining that his father had a permanent place in the
hearts of the people, Jagan said those making allegations
would get "washed away" due to the love and affection people
have for late Rajasekhara Reddy.
"Our beloved leader Rajasekhara Reddy showed, not just to
the state, but to the entire country, how a Chief Minister
should be. It was he who initiated schemes like free medical
treatment for poor, loans at three per cent interest rate, old
age pensions and four per cent reservations for minorities,"
"As long as I have God`s grace, my father`s blessings and
people`s love, nobody can do anything to me," he said.
Jagan was apparently referring to Naidu`s allegations in
Srikakulam district yesterday that Rajasekhara Reddy was
corrupt and hurt the state a lot. The TDP leaders also
questioned how Jagan has acquired so much wealth.
Jagan has earlier said the TDP leaders were making
allegations against him and his father as they are jealous of
the good response to his yatra.
