Kurnool: The TDP is keenly interested in lobbying with the voters to select their candidate unanimously during the by-elections to Nandyal Lok Sabha seat. The continuous visits of the Chief Minister and other cabinet ministers to Nandyal is heating up the political atmosphere.
Rumours are making rounds that ministers P Narayana, Kalva Srinivasulu and KE Prabhakar of the ruling party are approaching their respective sects and convincing them to avoid by-elections and unanimously support Chief Minister’s nominated candidate Brahmananda Reddy.
Bapanapalle Narayana of Nandyal, during an interaction with this correspondent on Thursday said that Telugu Desam Party has failed to fulfill its promises made to develop Nandyal. It is very unfortunate that the ruling party is not in a position to construct the protection wall to Shyama Kalva, Kundu River and Maddileru Vagu despite funds sanctioned by the earlier government.
The then Chief Minister, YS Rajasekhara Reddy had sanctioned Rs.100 crores for the construction of protection walls that would save the colonies from submerging. The Telugu Desam Party just started by spending Rs.20 crore and left the construction in the middle and what happened to the remaining Rs.80 crore is a billion dollar question to this day, he quipped.
As a result of this several colonies like Harijana Peta, Baiti Peta, RTC bus stand, Deva nagar, Saleem Nagar, VC Colony, Kasturi Peta, CPM and NGO colony are submerged with flood waters.
This is a routine that is occurring every year and the leaders of ruling party are very well aware of the situation but don’t initiate any action, stated another resident, Hussain of Mitnala village. Despite several agitations by the residents of the respective colonies supported by left parties it reaped no results of saving the people from rain waters. Rainy season to Nandyal residents is nothing but a nightmare, he stated.
Spitting fire on the ruling party’s attitude, Mastan Vali of Nandyal town alleged that the government has totally failed to widen roads due to which people face traffic snarls. He said the Chief Minister Nara Chandra Babu Naidu has now sanctioned Rs.60 crores for the widening of roads at that time when rainy season has almost approached. This is nothing but to benefit his own party men and nothing more than that, he alleged.
He made a demand to take up the widening of roads according to the town planning designed during 1992. The fly over bridge at Bommala Satram is still crying for attention for its completion but the ruling government is not at all interested he added.
He further stated that the villagers of Gopadu Mandal and Nandyal Mandal are still running up and down to the government offices for getting ration cards. Around 35 villages are covered under these two mandals. Even the doom stricken villagers are not sanctioned with a single house from the government till date, decried Mastan Vali.
He said the government is gripped with fear to contest the by-elections as it knows very well that it is sure to taste the ire of the voters. He also spelled out that the Telugu Desam government has resulted in job losses for thousands by closing the sugar factory and spinning mills. All these voters are waiting for the right time to teach a good lesson to the Telugu Desam Party, added Mastan Vali.
