Hyderabad, Aug 19 (INN): Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) President and MP Capt. N. Uttam Kumar Reddy accused both BJP and TRS of enacting the fake drama of political rivalry only to mislead people and damage Congress party.
In a live interaction with Congress party workers on social media platform Facebook and tele-conference on Monday, Uttam Kumar Reddy expressed wonder over the statement of BJP National Working President J.P. Nadda wherein the latter accused Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao of indulging in corruption. “Congress party has been exposing the corrupt practices and mass irregularities of TRS Govt for the last five years. However, Prime Minister Narender Modi or his government never took note of our allegations. Instead, PM Modi and many Union Ministers openly praised KCR Govt. Similarly, he said KCR has always behaved like a true ‘Modi Bhakt’ and never criticised the BJP Government,” he said while asking Nadda to explain the reasons behind sudden change in BJP’s policy towards TRS.
Uttam Kumar Reddy said that BJP and TRS, which are true, but secret allies in Delhi, were enacting the rivalry drama in Telangana. He challenged BJP leader Nadda to make his party’s government at the Centre to order a CBI probe against KCR if BJP was serious against exposing the corruption in TRS Government. He pointed out that TRS supported the BJP Government since 2014 and KCR was such a great fan of PM Modi that when the latter visited Telangana for the launch of Mission Bhagiratha, KCR delivered a speech saying he just wanted a little space in Modi’s heart and nothing else. He said there were innumerable occasions when KCR supported Modi Government’s decisions, although they were irrational and anti-people. Likewise, Modi Govt provided the required shield to KCR facilitating him to indulge in huge corruption and irregularities.
The TPCC Chief said that the Congress party has continuously exposed the irregularities and corruption by KCR regime in Mission Bhagiratha, Mission Kakatiya and other irrigation projects. Unlike BJP and TRS, he said Congress party never cheats people with double-talk and dual-standard and it still stands on its allegations.
Uttam Kumar Reddy said that the BJP leaders were ‘day-dreaming’ of coming to power in Telangana after the party won four Lok Sabha seats. He said BJP would never gain strength in Telangana as Modi Govt did nothing for the State in the last five years. He reminded that the promises made in the Telangana Act like a Railway Coach Factory in Qazipet, Steel Plant in Bayyaram or the establishment of Tribal University, remained unimplemented. He said people of Telangana were secular in nature and there was no space for communal parties like BJP who tries to win through polarization. He said that the Congress party was only alternate to TRS and it would bounce back to power in 2023 elections.
The TPCC Chief announced that a delegation of senior leaders of Congress party would visit Tummadi Hatti in in Adilabad district on August 25 to review the status of availability of Godavari waters. He said KCR Govt has wasted thousands of crores of public money by constructing the barrage at Medigadda instead of Tummadi Hatti by re-designing the Kaleshwaram project.
Uttam Kumar Reddy also warned against harassment to Congress workers by TRS leaders and a few police officials. Asking the party workers not to worry, he promised that the Congress party would defend them under all circumstances. He informed that one MPTC of Congress party in Devarkonda Assembly segment attempted suicide due to harassment by one police Sub-Inspector. He said a representation was immediately made with Director General of Police and concerned Superintendent of Police. He said that SI has reportedly been transferred.
The TPCC Chief also informed that 75th birth anniversary celebrations of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi would be organised at a grand scale across Telangana on August 20 (Tuesday). He said that the celebration, in different forms, would be held continuously for the next few months. He also informed that the AICC was organising a grand celebration of Rajiv Gandhi’s birth anniversary on August 22 at Indra Gandhi Indoor Stadium in New Delhi. (INN)
