Telugu Desam Party (TDP) President N. Chandrababu Naidu said on Monday that women’s empowerment is possible only with his party, alleging that all the welfare schemes implemented during his government were scrapped after Jagan Mohan Reddy became the Chief Minister.

Addressing a meeting of women in his home constituency Kuppam in the Chittoor district, he alleged that to mint money, the Jagan government resorted to supply of spurious liquor which resulted in women turning widows.

The TDP supremo said that the state government is giving just Rs 100 each per the beneficiaries of various schemes but looting Rs 1,000 from them through heavy prices of essentials, petrol, diesel and other commodities, including the power tariff hike.
