Karimnagar: Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy on Saturday announced a Government medical college to Karimnagar district. Following the representations submitted by the elected leaders from the district, the Chief Minister conceded their plea and asked the district administration to start the process of acquiring land and other requirements. After launching 'Amma Hastam' at Mulkaluru village of Bheemdevarapalli mandal in Karimnagar district, the Chief Minister informed that the State Government had also decided to allocate 30 acres of land for women in every district for setting up an industrial corridor. Speaking on the occasion, the Chief Minister criticised the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) for failing to fight for the people's problems and said that the TRS leaders were running the party only depending on the sentiment. Referring to the demand for the separate Telangana State, Kiran Kumar Reddy said that the issue was now with the Centre and he would abide by whatever the decision taken by the Centre. On the occasion, he showered many sops to the people of Huzurabad Assembly constituency and agreed to increase from 30 beds to 50 beds in the Huzurabad Government hospital. Ministers Botcha Satyanarayana and D Sridhar Babu, Government Whip Arepalli Mohan, MLCs Santosh Kumar and Bhanu Prasad, Huzurabad MLA Praveen Reddy and former Minister T Jeevan Reddy, District Collector Smita Sabharwal and other officials were present. As part of his one-day visit to Karimnagar district, the Chief Minister laid the foundation stone for several developmental works and inaugurated several other works, all worth about Rs 100 crore in the segment on the day. Ponnam takes a dig at Seemandhra leaders on T-issue Karimnagar: Taking advantage of Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy's official programme, Congress MP Ponnam Prabhakar took a dig at the Seemandhra leaders for obstructing the creation of Telangana state and asked them to cooperate for the bifurcation of the State. As part of Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy's visit to Karimnagar district, a public meeting was held at Mulkaluru village of Bheemadevarapalli mandal on Saturday. Addressing the meeting, Ponnam Prabhakar said even though the Congress high command and the Union Government were in favour of a separate Telangana State, leaders of the Seemandhra region were not cooperating with the Government and were also creating obstruction for the Telangana state. Ponnam cited the Chief Minister's post was also one of the reasons for the delay in Telangana State as majority of the Chief Ministers in the successive Governments have been representing the Seemandhra region for the past few decades and they were not cooperating sincerely for the Telangana cause. Ponnam Prabhakar asked the Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy and PCC chief Botcha Satyanarayana, who were present at the dais, to recognise the sentiment of Telangana people and cooperate with them for creating the Telangana State. The Congress MP also found fault with the State Government for allocating the Bayyaram iron mine to Visakhapatnam plant and demanded it to set up a steel plant only at Bayyaram without rushing its ore to other places in the State.
