Senior politician Daggubati Venkateswara Rao on Tuesday declared that his son Daggubati Hitesh would join the YSRCP in the attendance of party president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy at the new residence of Jaganmohan Reddy in Guntur district on Wednesday.
He said Y S Jaganmohan Reddy is a dedicated and hardworking leader and knew the people’s problems because of his long Padayatra. Daggubati along with his son Hitesh, speaking to the media at the Press Club here, said his son Hitesh would fight the Assembly polls from Parchuru constituency in Prakasam district.
He said politics means duty and not glamour. He said his son has been in touch with the people of Karamchedu and other areas for three years and may become a strong leader. He said he was not active in politics and chose to promote his son.
Daggubati came down massively on Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu alleging that he has no balance and never sticks to his word. He claimed Chandrababu Naidu failed to fulfil promises given to farmers on loan waiver and self-help groups.
He claimed that the TDP government is claiming the credit on the Central government schemes like PMAY, construction of Polavaram Project and laying cement roads in the rural areas.
Daggubati questioned why the Chief Minister was blaming the BJP government despite receiving regular help from the Centre. “I am not jealous of Naidu,” he said. Daggubati said he feels pity for Naidu because he finds many sarcastic posts every day in the social media against the Chief Minister and his decisions.
He said a native daily had stated that Daggubati Venkateswara Rao was jealous with Chandrababu Naidu and his image. He pointed out that he was not jealous of Naidu but he was feeling pity for the condition of Naidu.
He said his co-brother Chandrababu Naidu is a peculiar creature and never sticks to his words. Daggubati Hitesh said that he is thrilled to work with Jaganmohan Reddy.
He felt that YSRCP would win the elections and fulfil the commitments made by Jaganmohan Reddy to the people of Andhra Pradesh during his Padayatra.
