Dr. YSR guilty of impropriety: Lok Satta

Chief Minister Dr. Y. S. Rajasekhara Reddy has thrown constitutional proprieties and democratic norms to the winds in his feverish bid to return to power at any cost, charged the Lok Satta Party today.

Issuance of 844 Government orders in 72 hours in the twilight of its term and on the eve of elections exposes Government’s scant regard for propriety. That the Government was burning midnight oil to favor its cronies reflected its insecurity over the election outcome, pointed out party spokesman P. Ravi Maruth and Secretary P. Bhaskara Rao.

Talking to the media, the Lok Satta leaders said that most of the orders were meant to benefit Government followers and supporters and not the common man, highlighting Dr. YSR’s claim that he was not given to saying a ‘no’ to any favor sought from him. In the process, the Chief Minister is squandering precious Government resources forgetting that he is the custodian of public interest.

The Lok Satta leaders said that the Government, which had hitherto encouraged or ignored encroachment of Government lands by its cronies, now stooped to monopolize even newspaper front pages to give personal publicity to Dr. YSR at the cost of the exchequer.

The Congress Government has hit the nadir in its pursuit of politics of impropriety, said Mr. Ravi Maruth and Mr. Bhaskara Rao.
