BJP Andhra Pradesh unit today urged the state Chief Minister K Rosaiah to fulfill the assurances of late Y S Rajasekhar Reddy who had promised to bring down prices of red gram and sugar.

In a letter addressed to Rosaiah, the BJP state unit president Bandaru Dattatreya said that the late YSR had assured the people from the floor of the house that all possible measures would be taken to bring down the prices of essential commodities, particularly of red gram and sugar.

YSR also had said 50,000 tonnes of red gram would be imported and made available to the people at a cost of Rs 60 per kg from October one, Dattatreya said in his letter.

One of the promises that YSR made just before his tragic death was to make red gram available for a price of Rs 60 per kilo and to reduce the price of sugar while continuing the efforts of bringing down the price of fine rice, the BJP leader said.
