Equal importance for women in legislative bodies soon: Naidu

Equal importance for women in legislative bodies soon: Naidu

Vizianagaram, April 23 (UNI) Telugu Desam Party national president N Chandrababu Naidu promised to provide equal importance for women on a par with men in all the legislative bodies after the TDP-allied National Democratic Alliance (NDA) formed the government in Andhra Pradesh.
In an interaction with women at Gajapathinagaram of Vizianagaram district on Tuesday, Chandrababu Naidu also promised a Rs 10 lakh interest-free loan for all DWCRA groups. "I will personally take on the responsibility of making all women in the state rich," Naidu told the women at the interaction.
Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, who does not have the basic knowledge to supply even a mouthful of drinking water to the people, is masterful in arranging door-delivery of liquor and ganja. Naidu lashed out and reiterated that the development of the State is possible only if Jagan Mohan Reddy is kicked out of power. Observing that creating assets is possible only with the TDP, he promised to take all the necessary measures for the progress of all sections of people in the State.
Delighted at the tremendous response from women at Gajapathinagaram, Chandrababu Naidu said that women's empowerment was possible only with the TDP. He made a fervent appeal to them to elect Kalisetti Appala Naidu, who is in the race for the Lok Sabha from the constituency, and Konpalli Srinivas, who is the NDA candidate for the Assembly, with a huge majority.
Asking the women not to get carried away by the words of those fraudsters, he told them that it was the late NT Rama Rao, the then Chief Minister of the combined Andhra Pradesh, who provided equal rights for women in ancestral properties. But Jagan did not give a share for his sister in the ancestral properties.
"As the Chief Minister of the State, I had set up one primary school for every km, one upper primary school for every three km, and one high school for every five km in the state only to ensure that every girl should get educated. One junior college for every Mandal, one engineering college for every division, and one medical college for every district too were established," he recalled and he told the women that 33 percent reservation was also provided for women in all the local bodies.
Chandrababu Naidu felt that the day is not too far when women get equal representation on par with men in legislative bodies. Regretting that the prices of all commodities have gone up so steeply since Jagan came to power, Mr. Chandrababu said that this Chief Minister is responsible for women becoming widows due to the sale of spurious liquor. Even atrocities against women have gone up in these five years, he added.
Chandrababu Naidu promised to implement all the welfare schemes as promised by him, including three free cooking gas cylinders for every household. This part, the TDP-allied NDA government will work to create assets in the state to provide employment to every youth in the coming five years.
