Addressing the media, YSR Congress leader and Nagari MLA Roja slammed AP CM Chandrababu Naidu for trying to lure voters through bogus schemes before the elections.

MLA Roja said that CM Chandrababu had promised Rs 10,000 under the Pasupu Kumkuma scheme but only managed to hand out post-dated cheques worth Rs 3000.

She went on to accuse the TDP chief of cheating women voters in the name of waiving DWCRA loans. Further accusing the CM, Roja questioned “Earlier he could not even afford giving out Rs 1000 pensions, but now, he is giving Rs 2000! How?”

The Opposition leader lashed out at Mr Naidu in front of the media and said: “His schemes, appeasements and protests just before the elections are a clear indication of his utter desperation.”

Also criticising the Chandrababu’s efforts of making the womenfolk take a vow to vote for TDP, RK Roja further drilled her point on the CM’s desperation.

On the topic of Special Status (SCS) protests, Roja said “For four-and-a-half years, Chandrababu had kept mum on the issue and is now taking a U-turn because of YS Jagan’s relentless struggle.
