CPI seeks CB-CID probe into TBGKS funding
CPI state joint secretary Kunamneni Sambashiva Rao alleged that Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao was deceiving people of Telangana with his honey-coated words and hollow promises.
Khammam: CPI state joint secretary Kunamneni Sambashiva Rao alleged that Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao was deceiving people of Telangana with his honey-coated words and hollow promises.
Addressing the newsmen at Giriprasad Bhavan in Khammam on Monday, Kunamneni came down heavily on KCR and the TRS. He alleged that the ruling TRS had spent nearly Rs 300 crore on its subsidiary Telangana Boggu Ghani Karmika Sangham (TBGKS) to help it win the Singareni elections. He demanded a through probe by CB CID into it.
Alleging that ruling party MLAs, MPs along with Ministers had played a key role in distribution of money, he said, “Bribing others or accepting is a crime. Then what action the Chief Minister is going to take against the MLAs, MPs and Ministers involved in it?” he questioned.
Announcing a bonus of Rs 87,000 on the occasion of Dasara and Diwali was also a way of luring the voters. The ruling party has won the elections along with support extended by the Singareni Chief Managing Director Sridhar, he alleged.
Alleging that many of TRS leaders were siphoning the Mission Bhagiratha and Mission Kakatiya funds, he said the TRS government tried to hand over the Thadicherla open cast mines to Dart Private Company and a contract was also given to Boinapalli Venugopal Rao in this regard. The government was also trying to hand over nearly six open cast mines to Adani Group, he charged.
Demanding the government to regularise the services of Singareni out sourcing employees and fulfill the promise dependent jobs, the CPI leader said people would teach KCR a befitting lesson if he failed to keep his promises.
CPI District Secretary Bagam Hemanth Rao and representatives Potu Prasad, Jammula Jitendar Reddy, Shingu Narasimha Rao, S K Jani Miya and B G Climont were present along with others.
