SCCL polls: Cong mocks at TRS roping in Ministers for campaign
Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) Working President Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka claimed that Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao “feared rejection by the people” and hence was utilising the services of several Ministers in the campaign for SCCL elections, despite expressing confidence of winning 100 seats in the next general elections.
Bhadrachalam: Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) Working President Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka claimed that Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao “feared rejection by the people” and hence was utilising the services of several Ministers in the campaign for SCCL elections, despite expressing confidence of winning 100 seats in the next general elections.
Addressing a press conference, Bhatti questioned the need for deploying Ministers, MPs, MLAs, corporation chairmen, besides the deputy CMs for the campaign, when KCR was confident of TRS bagging 100 constituencies.
“Since fear of losing SCCL poll gripped the CM, he is using all means for the TRS-affiliated union Telangana Boggu Ghani Karimka Sangham (TBGKS) to emerge victorious,” he asserted. He alleged that the government in the last three years had miserably failed to build even an education institution, let alone projects and hospitals.
He expressed surprise at the administration’s claim of building all the bridges during the TRS regime. The TPCC leader charged that “there has been no limit to the loot of the natural resources by the TRS government”.
He wanted the TRS leaders who claimed that development has taken place by building highway/ roads should specify what they had done in the district. He accused the administration of failing for several years to appoint regular project officers for Integrated Tribal Development Authorities.
Mallu further pointed out that an allocation of Rs 1,500 crore should have been sufficient for taking up the balance works of the Dummugudem Rajivsagar and Indirasagar projects taken by the Congress government. But the TRS regime was taking up fresh works costing Rs 10,000 crore, by claiming to have changed the plans, he said.
He stated that there would be pollution if “sub-critical turbines were used in the 1,080 MW Bhadradri Thermal Power Project, adding that they have been banned in the country.
He questioned as to whose benefit the technology was being used, when super critical technology was in vogue. “The use of raw material meant for utilisation within 30 years would entail an additional burden of Rs 10,000 crore,” he added.
Among those present at the press conference were former Pinapaka MLA Rega Kantha Rao, Yellandu constituency in-charge Bhukya Dalsingh Naik, Bhadrachalam division party leaders Budagam Srinivas, Bolisetty Ranga Rao, Nallapu Rudraprasad, Chintarela Ravikumar, Nakka Prasad, Sarella Naresh and Bogala Srinivas Reddy.
