BJP vows to continue anti-corruption campaign

Staff Reporter

VIJAYAWADA: Senior BJP leader Bandaru Dattatreya on Wednesday said that their party will continue anti-corruption meetings in all districts and extend this campaign at the mandal and village levels in order to expose what he described as the total failure of the United Progressive Alliance Government at the Centre in respect of tackling corruption.

He asserted that the BJP would do everything possible to spread awareness among people on the many scams like the 2G, Commonwealth Games, and also black money with the purpose of exposing the true nature of the UPA Government.

Addressing a press conference here, Mr. Dattatreya reiterated that in the first term of the UPA, Manmohan Singh was hailed as the best Prime Minister but in the second term, he was being dubbed the “worst PM” India has ever had.

Through pamphlets and public meetings, anti-corruption campaign would be taken deep into the grass root people.

The day would come when the people would teach a fitting lesson to the UPA Government, he added.

Mr Dattatreya criticised Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy saying that the latter had done nothing to ensure purchase of paddy from the farmers by offering remunerative prices to them. Instead of helping the farmers in their hour of need, the Chief Minister was showing interest in cosmetic activities like riding a bullock cart at Tuesday's public meeting apparently to win the favour of the farmers.

Earlier, he addressed a meeting held as part of anti-corruption campaign at the AP Lorry Owners Association Hall. BJP city president K. Venkata Pichchaiah presided over the meeting, while party district president Ramineni Venkata Krishna, state secretary Laka Vengalarao Yadav, state official spokesperson Uppalapati Srinivasa Raju and others were present.
