Hyderabad: Promising a slum-free Hyderabad, TRS chief K Chandrasekhar Rao on Sunday promised to spend Rs 10,000 crore for building permanent houses for the poor in the twin cities. Addressing public meetings in various constituencies in Hyderabad, Ranga Reddy and Medak districts, he said that Modi, Naidu and Pawan were out to harm the interests of T State.
Modi and both the Naidus (Chandrababu and Venkaiah) are conspiring to make Hyderabad as a Union Territory, he alleged. He said that Pawan’s remarks were reflective of “Seemandhra arrogance.” Rao demanded that the film industry declare their stand on Pawan Kalyan who, he said, had made insulting remarks against the Telangana community. He claimed that he had information that Modi would make announcement during campaign in Seemandhra to make Hyderabad as a Union Territory. There are many questions to be asked since BJP manifesto for Seemandhra promised to give special category status to that region for ten years, Rao said. Reiterating his promise to build two BHK houses, each costing Rs 5 lakh, for city poor by taking Rs 10,000 crore loan from HUDCO, he said that construction of 20,000 houses would be undertaken in Secunderabad, Boduppal and Film Nagar soon after TRS formed the government. He vowed to transform Hyderabad into an international city. The ITIR project would change the outlook of Hyderabad. Not only 30 lakh job opportunities would be created. The city would see major infrastructural changes to meet the growing needs in the future. He flayed the flyovers concept of Chandrababu Naidu and stated skyways between Ramchandrapuram-LB Nagar and Barkas-Cantonment would have solved the traffic woes to a major extent. Reaching out to Muslim voters, the TRS chief stated that they had earmarked Rs 1000 crore annual budget for the welfare of the community. He asked them to repose faith in TRS party this time in view of Congress not bringing changes in their lives even after decades of support to it.
