Nandyal: The YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) will implement all its promises in a very transparent and effective manner as the people are my only asset, party president YS Jagan Mohan Reddy told the people of Poluru here on Friday.

Addressing a roadshow in Poluru, he said the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) has never fulfilled its election manifesto and its failures are revealed in the actions and speeches of chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu. "Though a villain seems winning in the entire movie, it is actually the hero who defeats the villain and steals the heart of the audience at the end. The same will be seen in the ensuing elections in Nandyal and also in 2019," YS Jagan said.

"Unlike Chandrababu Naidu, I do not have police force to crush the opposition nor money to shower on the corrupt and sweep away all scams under the carpet. My real assets are the people and I urge them to use their conscience when they caste their vote in the by-election," he said.

Akhila Priya Waylaid

TDP minister Akhila Priya was waylaid by people of Gaddipadu in the ninth ward of Nandyal municipality here on Friday. The minister and her brother Vikyat Reddy were campaigning in the area for the TDP, when she was confronted by the people of the ward. They were questioned about the promises made in the earlier elections. They wanted her to explain about houses that the TDP promised during the elections. A red-faced Akhila Priya and her followers made a hasty retreat from the ward following the incident.
