Praja Rajyam Party has allotted 96 seats to BCs out of 240 it announced so far for contesting in the Assembly. This showed the party’s commitment towards social justice, said actor and Yuva Rajyam State president Pavan Kalyan.
Addressing people at public meetings at Kothavalasa and Vizianagaram on Friday, Mr. Kalyan said that communities representing artisans were given tickets, if problems of artisans were to be raised in the Assembly.
He assured the gathering that that PRP would provide basic amenities in proportionate to the growing population and education of international standard to the poor. It was unfortunate to learn that people in the fort town lacked adequate drinking water.
On the adverse reaction to his speeches from the Congress leaders, he said that he would not hesitate to point out their mistakes, adding that the Congress Government had been adopting anti-poor policies.
He said that the “Abhaya Hastham” of Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy, Chief Minister, was nothing but “mondi cheyyi” (empty hand). He appealed to voters to elect PRP nominee Meesala Gita from Vizianagaram.
The actor sang ballads criticising the Congress and the Telugu Desam to amuse his fans. Braving the scorching heat they waited for him at Ayodhya Maidan here an hour before his scheduled meeting at 11 a.m. But the actor reached at the spot at 1.45 p.m.
