Both TDP, Congress corrupt: PRP leader


Praja Rajyam spokesperson Vasireddy Padma on Monday said both the Congress and Telugu Desam parties were mired in corruption, for which they would have to pay a heavy price in the ensuing elections.

The PRP was bound to give the two major parties a befitting lesson and people were aware that theirs were mere public postures devoid of real achievements.

Addressing a press conference here on Monday, Ms Padma said PRP possessed enough strength to defeat the Congress and the grand alliance of TDP, TRS and Left parties. The Congress regime was replete with instances of squandering of people’s money in different forms. Many senior leaders of the ruling party were involved in scandals and they were once again shamelessly seeking a positive mandate.

The TDP was by no means a good party and it entered into an opportunistic alliance with TRS and Left parties with whom it crossed swords on various issues. All constituents of the ‘grand alliance’ have conflicting interests but they put up a show of unity just to share the spoils of power if they happened to score over the Congress and PRP. The PRP was explaining all these issues to the electorate, who might be under the impression that the Congress and other major parties would make their lives better. It (PRP) was truly committed to social justice which has been and would continue to be its mainstay irrespective of the changing ‘political seasons’. PRP leader P.V. Viswam and others spoke.
