Telugu Desam Party president N Chandrababu Naidu on Friday called upon the people of the state unite and wage a war against the government’s anti-people policies and schemes.
Talking to media persons in Kakinada on the second day of his three-day tour of East Godavari district, Mr Naidu said the TDP would create awareness on problems being faced by people and wage an relentless fight against them.
The Leader of the Opposition also took the opportunity to call on women to fight against menace of liquor in the state. He said that the free flow of liquor is spoiling the lives of the citizens socially and economically. Mr Naidu alleged that liquor syndicates, which won the bids in the recent auction, are selling liquor on pushcarts instead of opening shops.
The liquor syndicates were looting people economically by increasing the price of liquor and violating rules and regulations, the former chief minister said.
Due to lackadaisical approach of excise officials, there was no control on liquor traders, who were violating all guidelines by forming syndicates, he alleged.
Expressing serious concern over the exploitation and harassment of micro-finance companies, the former chief minister alleged that Dwacra group women are committing suicides unable to bear their torture.
Demanding action against micro-finance firms, he pointed out that the micro financing system is defeating the very concept of empowerment of rural poor women and diluting the Self-Help Group (SHGs) movement.
If the situation has to improve in the state, the people should be aware of developments, cautioned said.
