By Abdul Basheer: Telugu Desam Party (TDP) state president Kingerapu Atchen Naidu on Saturday came down heavily on the Jagan Mohan Reddy government alleging that it cheated backward classes by diverting Rs 34,000 crore from sub-plan funds.

The TDP state unit president said that the Chief Minister, Jagan Mohan Reddy, “is a cheat who diverted Rs 34,000 crore funds from the Backward Classes (BCs) sub-plan. Mr Jagan Mohan Reddy discontinued the 100 welfare programmes implemented during the TDP regime,” he added.

“Jagan, who had already deceived the BCs, conducted a meeting of the community leaders from his party, including his cabinet ministers belonging to the BCs, only to take them for a ride again,” Atchen Naidu said.

Naidu further added that the chief minister made the ministers issue a statement that special schemes are implemented for BCs, but the fact is that “the same schemes are being implemented for other communities too.”

“In the past three-and-half years, Rs 34,000 crore funds meant for the BCs welfare, have been diverted hitting the morality of the community,” the TDP chief said adding that even the Adarana scheme has been discontinued.

“The reservation ratio in local bodies has been brought down by 10 per cent thus causing the community to lose 16,800 posts,” he added.

“This apart, the 8,000 acres of assigned lands of backward classes have been illegally occupied and other schemes like foreign education, wedding gifts and the best available schools too have been cancelled. What is more shocking is that 26 backward class leaders have been done to death after Jagan became the CM, while false cases have been filed against 650 leaders belonging to the community,” Atchen Naidu alleged.

No funds for the 56 corporations set up by the government and the cabinet ministers from the backward class community can never raise their voice, the TDP chief said. “Their voices are being stifled and the CM is ruling the roost, and thus they could not question the diversion of Rs 34,000 cr funds,” he maintained.

Atchen Naidu demanded that the reservations for BCs and the Adarana scheme be revived with immediate effect.
