Kothagudem: CPI state secretary Chada Venkat Reddy has called upon Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao to draw lessons from TDP leader Revanth Reddy who joined Congress recently by resigning membership from the Legislative Assembly, returning gunmen and surrendering official quarters.
He dared the Chief Minister to make 30-odd MLAs, who had defected to the pink party, to resign from their membership of the House and face elections.
Addressing the media here on Tuesday, Chada reiterated KCR to accept the challenge and face elections instead of exuding confidence of winning at least 105 seats in next polls.
The state government was ruling against the wishes of people, he said, observing that the KCR had forgotten the fact that statehood to Telangana was realised due the contribution of various outfits and people from different walks of life. It was not right on the part of the Chief Minister to belittle a leader of the stature of the TJAC president Prof Kodandaram, he said.
Opining that Bhadrachalam Assembly constituency had lost its identity after its division into various parts, Chada said there was no use of meeting the Telugu Chief Ministers and urging them to restore the five mandals merged with the Andhra Pradesh.
He said that the CPI would meet President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi and strive to bring back the five panchayats to Telangana.
He mocked that the development of the state took a back seat and statehood to Telangana brought cheers to only four members of the KCR family.
CPI state assistant secretary Kunamneni Sambasiva Rao, Bhadradri-Kothagudem district secretary SK Shabeer Basha, CPI state executive body member Ravulapalli Ram Prasad and others were present.
