Chandragiri (Tirupati district): Bahujana Rashtra Samithi (BRS) Associate Convener of Andhra Pradesh Venjarla Ramesh strongly criticized that Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has forced teachers to act as security guards before liquor shops and expressed deep concern over the humiliation meted out to the teaching community.
Ramesh interacted with leaders of AP Teachers Federation (APTF), who leaders explained their series of problems and wanted a fixed policy for transfer of teachers and also payment of their salaries on the first of every month.
They also wanted the facial recognition system to be withdrawn and biometric system be reintroduced. Ramesh came down heavily on the Jagan Mohan Reddy government for registering cases against the teachers who fought for their genuine demands.
Ramesh promised to solve all their issues once the BRS forms the government again and also create a friendly atmosphere in which they can discharge their duties in a free and fair manner.
Earlier, Ramesh visited the level causeway at Thanapalli. The locals explained to him that the causeway was washed away in the floods that lashed the area in November 2021. He felt that inefficient administration and due to poor knowledge of the issues concerned, such situations arise.
The causeway across the Swarnamukhi river too got damaged due to the floods and till now no remedial measures have been initiated. He promised to take up the causeway works soon.
Interacting with representatives of the Backward Classes (BC) community at Bhagyanagar, he said that his sole aim of BRS was to see to it that no person from the Bahujana communities should suffer from poverty.
Assuring them that all the welfare schemes that are discontinued now will be revived, he told them that it is the primary aim of the BRS that was fighting with the anti Bahujana forces for not conducting census of BCs, SCs, STs and minorities for the proportional allocation of the budget to them for their empowerment.
Expressing concern over the sale of spurious liquor brands in the State, Ramesh alleged that CM Jagan was encouraging manufacture of such liquor.
