Amaravati: AP Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has said the government introduced historical bills in the Assembly. He said that these bills would bring the good name to the government.
Chief Minister said that the government has decided to provide 50% reservation to SC, ST, and BC in nominated posts and works. But, the Opposition has the lousy intention to prevent these bills, he said.
CM YS Jagan said that he had put those promises in the YSRCP manifesto and that he had reiterated them in meetings held in each constituency. Chandrababu has never thought about BCs, SCs, and minorities, he said.
"As promised in the manifesto, we are bringing the bills. Chandrababu is in fear that our government gets the good name. We are providing 50% reservation for women in nominated posts and works," Jagan said.
As nowhere in the country, the government is providing 50% reservation for BC, SC, ST, and minority in the nominated posts. He said the paper clipping shown by Chandrababu belongs to October 2017.
Jagan said that he promised 'YSR Cheyutha' scheme on September 3, 2018. "During the Praja Sankalpa Yatra, I mentioned 'YSR Cheyutha' scheme in all meetings. Even in the election manifesto, we have placed the YSR Cheyutha scheme. The people who saw our manifesto has voted for us," he said.
Speaking on the occasion, Jagan said that during the first Assembly sessions, they introduced the historical bills to ensure justice to BC, SC, ST, and minorities.
Meanwhile, a debate on pensions was taken up in the Assembly session on Tuesday, which led to the war of words between the ruling and opposition members.
