YS Jagan Mohan Reddy did ‘Button Nokkudu’ in Tenali the other day to release the third installment of Rythu Bharosa. But then, the 1000 Crore amount Jagan claims to have released was already deposited in the accounts of farmers a day before itself.
The 1000 Crore Jagan claims to have released are actually PM-KISAN funds released by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday in Bengaluru. This blatant lie has become a buzzing topic everywhere in Andhra Pradesh.
At this juncture, something very interesting has happened on. VijayaSai Reddy who is reportedly disgruntled with Jagan Mohan Reddy did tweet about PM-KISAN funds but not about Rythu Bharosa.
“Hon’ble PM @narendramodi ji released 16,800 crores for farmers under his flagship #PM-KISAN. It will be of great help to the agriculture sector. Over 8 crore farmers received Rs 2000 each directly and Rs 6000 per annum. I appreciate the scheme which is the brainchild of Modi Ji,” Sai Reddy tweeted on February 27th.
He did not tweet anything about Rythu Bharosa on the 28th.
Eenadu published a story about how Sai Reddy did not endorse Jagan’s lie indicating that there is some gap with the party in the wake of the recent turn of events.
Hours after the story is out, Sai Reddy posted a tweet praising Rythu Bharosa.
But much to the displeasure of the party he debunked the lies of 13,500 Rupees help to the farmers. He wrote in detail how YSR Congress adds only 7,500 to the 6,000 Rupees being given by the Modi government every year.
This explanation is much worse than not writing anything about the scheme. While a damage control is what YSRCP supporters expected, he in fact, caused more damage.
