P.C. Palli, Prakasam district: Leader of Opposition in Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy listened to the complaints of women of this arid area in backward Prakasam district, who narrated their problems to him. They told him that they were forced to buy a potful of water for Rs. 10 to quench their thirst in view of the widespread scarcity in the region. Further, they said the water which was supplied to the people of region was not potable. They simply could not drink what was supplied by the civic authorities and hence were compelled to buy water at such exorbitant costs. They requested the YSRCP Chief to ensure that pure drinking water was supplied to the residents of the area.
Irmiya of Veera Obunapalli was among those who met the YSRCP chief to narrate their problems. He lamented that the TDP government had not filled up backlog vacancies. The disabled were denied their rightful quota in employment and the few jobs that were given were being 'sold' by the Telugu Desam leaders, he said.
People of Billikurava mandal who have been taking part in the Praja Sankalpa Yatra for the past three days, expressed the view that the most deprived sections of society wished to see YS Jagan Mohan Reddy as the chief minister of the state, this time around.
