YSRCP president Jagan Mohan Reddy addressing the AgriGold victims at the deeksha pranganam here on Thursday assured that the party continues to fight till complete justice is done to the AgriGold victims and there is no compromise in this regard, he promised.

Jagan said by now three years had already gone and wait for another two years till your government comes to power where you get cent per cent justice. He said after YSRCP comes to power, the government will do complete justice within one week. He said that Rs.1,182 core would be allotted to 14 lakh victims. The present government’s assurance of Rs.3 lakh ex-gratia to the kin of those dead will be given another Rs.7 lakhs.

Jagan visited the AgriGold victims deeksha pranganam at Hanumantaraya Library at Gandhinagar in Vijayawada and gave a clear-cut assurance to them. He along with CPI (M) State Secretary P.Madhu and CPI State secretary Ramakrishna offered lime juice and put an end to the fast.

Jagan addressing them said that when they took up the matter in the Assembly, he said that Nara Chandrababu Naidu has no patience to hear our voice. He said that Chandrababu has given statement first and we were given time ranging to 10 to 20 minutes and cut the mike several times. He reminded that so far 105 persons were killed due to the scandal. He said that even we wanted to hike the ex-gratia of Rs.5 lakhs from the Rs.3 lakh, the government has no tolerance to hear.

As a responsible Opposition leader, I took up the issue in the Assembly and fighting for justice. Pulla Rao is not an enemy to me and I do not know Seetharam, the brother of AgriGold Chairman but fighting for your sake, he said. I raised the purchase of the lands by Minister Pulla Rao of the lands belonging to AgriGold with the evidences given by you, he said. Truth will only come out when it is inquired by a sitting High Court Judge, he said.
