Mahbubnagar: As the Telangana Rastra Samithi (TRS) busy celebrating Deekha Diwas commemorating the indefinite hunger strike taken up by its supremo K Chandrashekar Rao for separate state, the pink party leaders from Kodgal village of Jadcherla assembly constituency joined Congress party on Wednesday much to the displeasure of their bosses.
Kodgal, a TRS bastion, was recently adopted by Health Minister Dr C Laxma Reddy. As it as seen no development since its adoption, nearly 150 activists from the Kodgal have switched their loyalties to the grand old party.
Kodgal village, located about 20 kilometres from Jadcherla mandal headquarters, was devoid of any development in the last four years. As the local TRS leaders lost hopes on the government and the TRS party, they joined the Congress on Wednesday in the presence of Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee working president Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka.
Speaking on the occasion, Mallu alleged that Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao was wasting hundreds of crores of tax payers’ money for his own luxuries and neglecting the development of poor farmers and downtrodden in the State. “Instead of working from Secretariat, the Chief Minister has wasted crores of rupees on construction of Pragati Bhavan.
He has turned it into his private Durbar reflecting the Nizam era rule. The TRS party has forgotten its promise of providing jobs to the youth and resorting to aggression on the university students for asking jobs,” said Bhatti. He further termed the TRS as Temporary Rajakiya Party and forecasted that Congress party would come to power in next general elections.
