YSRCP committed to workers’ welfare: Vijayamma Hyderabad, May 1: YSR Congress Party honorary president YS Vijayamma has reiterated that the party is committed to the welfare of the workers and will take all possible steps to look after their welfare after coming to power. Addressing party workers and the members of the party’s trade union wing at the party central office here on Wednesday on the eve of the May Day, Vijayamma said the very name of YSR Congress party has an inherent reference to workers (Sramika) as the party’s main intention is to serve workers, youth and farmers earnestly. The party name itself reveals our

commitment to the welfare of the workers, she said. Dwelling at length on the importance of the May Day, Vijayamma said Dr.YSR gave utmost importance to the welfare of workers. “Workers were very happy during his regime as YSR gave priority to both welfare and development in equal measure,” she said, adding that workers are now in distress as Government itself has been forcing closure of the

industries by imposing longer power cuts. More than four lakh cottage and small industries have been closed due to lack of power and 20 lakh workers have become jobless, she said and added: “The Kiran Kumar regime is no different from that of Chandrababu who made lakhs of workers jobless with his high-tech policies and neglect of cottage industries and agriculture.” Earlier, she had unfurled the national and YSRCP Trade Union Congress flags and greeted the workers. Party trade union wing convener Janak Prasad also addressed the gathering.

Amma Hastam is only Maya Hastam: Vijayamma Hyderabad, May 1: Calling the recently introduced Amma Hastam scheme by Kiran Kumar Reddyled Congress Government as Maya Hastam, YSR Congress honourary president YS Vijayamma alleged Government has totally neglected the public welfare and kept aside the welfare schemes. Addressing a big gathering of people at Addagutta in Secunderabad after participating in a Rachchabanda programme and listening to a string of complaints from the locals, mostly women and the aged on Wednesday, she said the Government is not aware of the suffering of the people. As a leader, Dr. YSR knew the suffering of the people and

introduced several welfare schemes to mitigate their suffering. “He not only introduced the welfare schemes but also implemented them successfully as he was sincere,” she observed. The present Government, unconcerned about the people’s problems, has been imposing new charges and hiking all sorts of taxes to fill its coffers while neglecting the people’s welfare, she said. Vijayamma said the Amma Hastam scheme is only a Maya Hastam as the Government introduced it aiming at votes in the next elections. “The Government is not sincere in its approach and hence people have already started complaining about it.”

“We are feeling the void created by the death of Dr YSR as no one is there to listen to our woes and address our grievances,” the locals complained to Vijayamma. They told her life has become difficult for them with inflated power bills and hiked prices of essential commodities. While some people told her they were not getting pensions, some others complained bankers are collecting Rs.30,000 interest on a loan of Rs. 1 lakh though the loans are sanctioned under the 25 paisa interest scheme. Vijayamma assured them that
