Kurnool: Maintaining that the May 7 elections in Seemandhra was a battle between the “politics of credibility and honesty” on one side and the “politics of conspiracy and opportunism” on the other, the YSRCP chief Jagan Mohan Reddy today appealed to people to reject the forces that have been doling out impossible and hyperbolic promises and vote for his party.

Addressing a campaign meeting here, Reddy said, "I appeal you to vote for safeguarding the Telugu pride which will take its due place at the centre and dust away those forces that are willingly scrambling to obey the Delhi dictates."

"We will win all the MP seats and show our might to Delhi and bring enough funds to develop the state from centre without being submissive unlike TDP which has surrendered to BJP for the sake of votes and seats and has again shown its ugly face of opportunism," he said.

Reddy charged the TDP President N Chandrababu Naidu with "again coming to people with false promises." "This time around his dichotomy has been blatant. The person who made snide remarks on YSR (Reddy’s father and former Chief Minister late Y S Rajasekhara Reddy) free power while he was chief minister has started promising free power."

"The person who spoke of ill of farmers and never even thought of waiving interests on loans is now coming up with an impossible promise of waiving agriculture loans," he said.

The state budget itself was less than the amount he promised to waive.
