Speaking on the occasion, he said that rule of late Dr.Y.S.Rajasekhar Reddy was like a golden age. He said that no other chief minister ruled the state like him.
He said that their party would work for development and welfare of the people of the state.
Y.S.Jagan said, “We have included in the manifesto the issues which we have been saying for the last four years.’
He commented that Chandrababu Naidu was so expert in managing the media.
“GDP during Chandrababu rule was 5.7% only. But, the figure was 9.6 % during the rule of YSR and the figure went down to 6.8 % after YSR died,” explained Y.S.Jagan.
He said, “The agricultural growth rate during Chandrababu rule was 3.84 % and the figure went up to 6.14 % during the rule of YSR. But, the figure went down to 2.56% after the great leader died in 2009.”
Y.S.Jagan gave some figures to prove that the rule of late YSR was so better than that of Chandrababu Naidu in all fields.
“During the rule of Chandrababu, about 65 public sector undertakings were closed down and about 26,000 persons had lost their jobs,” said Y.S.Jagan.
“Total number of IT employees during the rule of Chandrababu was 81,000 only. But, the figure went up to 2.35 lakhs during the rule of late YSR,” explained Y.S.Jagan.
