Hyderabad: The Chief Minister, Mr N. Kiran Kumar Reddy, was cheating the youth with false promises, alleged the TDP general secretary, Mr Varla Ramaiah, and questioned how 15 lakh jobs could be created in three years.
Talking to the media here on Sunday, Mr Ramaiah said this was part of the strategy of the Chief Minister to cheat the youth and attract them towards the ruling party. He has questioned the government to state how many posts would be created in the government and private sector clearly. He demanded a white paper to be released on the creation of employment.
Mr Ramaiah has reminded the Chief Minister that the former chief minister late Dr Y S Rajasekhara Reddy had promised to create 2.5 lakh posts and the promise remained unfulfilled till date. He has demanded how many of the promised 2.5 lakh jobs were created so far. He also said that the Congress party has stated in the 16th page of its manifesto in 2004 that 70,000 backlog posts and 50,000 SC, ST backlog posts would be filled within six months of the government formation and this also remained unfulfilled so far.
Mr Ramaiah also reminded that late YSR had promised in a programme on February 23, 2008 in Ravindra Bharati that 5,000 Dalit entrepreneurs would be provided Rs 5 crores as loan and turned into Tatas, Birlas and Ambanis. He said that so far not a single Dalit entrepreneur was given Rs 5 crores as promised. He also questioned about the promise of late YSR that every woman would be made a lakhpati in five years and asked the government to inform the people through a white paper how many were made lakhpatis so far. He alleged that the Congress government only made promises so far and the new Chief Minister, Mr N. Kiran Kumar Reddy, was adding to the false promises.
