Hyderabad: Leader of Opposition in Legislative Council Mohammed Ali Shabbir alleged that Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao had a hidden agenda behind his recent visit to the national capital. Addressing a press conference at Gandhi Bhavan here on Saturday, Shabbir Ali said while Chandrashekar Rao selectively met a few Union Ministers during his visit to New Delhi, he had sent his daughter and Nizamabad MP K Kavitha to meet the Prime Minister to extend his party’s support to anti-farmer Land Acquisition Bill.
While Chandrashekar Rao met Defense Minister Manohar Parikkar and sought land to construct new Secretariat building, Kavitha claimed that she had made representations pertaining to her Nizamabad constituency, he said. “Is the new Secretariat building more important than farmers? People had a lot of expectations that the Chief Minister would meet Prime Minster to seek Central assistance for farmers who were hit hard due to drought and untimely rains.
However, instead of meeting Union Agriculture Minister and the Prime Minister, Chandrashekar Rao met Parikkar seeking a few acres of defense land for Secretariat. This is highly condemnable as he completely ignored problems of families of hundreds of farmers who committed suicide,” Shabbir Ali said.Shabbir Ali asked the Chief Minister to mend his ways and start thinking about farmers’ welfare. Else, he said people would teach TRS a fitting lesson.
