Nalgonda: Minister for Energy G Jagadish Reddy on Thursday exuded confidence that the TRS candidates would win in the MLC elections to both the Local bodies and Graduates Warangal-Khammam-Nalgonda Constituencies.
In view of the coming Legislative Council elections, an extensive meeting of Nalgonda district TRS elected representatives was conducted in the district headquarters. Party MLAs, MLCs, Municipal Chairpersons, Councillors, ZPTCs, MPPs and MPTCs attended.
Speaking at the meeting, Jagadish Reddy said that that the elected representatives of local bodies and graduates in the district now got another opportunity to back the leadership of Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, who has been giving top priority for development of Nalgonda, by voting to the TRS candidates in the coming Legislative Council elections. Nakkalagandi Lift Irrigation project, 7,600 MW thermal power plant at Damaracharla and AIIMS at Bibinagar are a few schemes to explain the special interest of the Chief Minister towards the district, he felt.
Quoting the figures which supported his prediction on victory of the TRS candidates in the ensuing Legislative Council elections, the Minister claimed that the party had strength of 450 elected representatives in the district including MPPs, ZPTCs and MPTCs. Another 50 local bodies elected representatives of opposition parties have already sought his appointment on Saturday to join the TRS in his presence, he added.
With this, the strength of the Congress representatives in local bodies would reduce from 380 to 330 in the district, he added. The elected representatives of opposition parties are evincing interest in joining the TRS with a hope that it would help them fulfill the promises made to the people. He also underlined the need to launch massive campaign for the victory of TRS candidate in the elections to Warangal-Khammam-Nalgonda Graduates’ constituency. He alleged that the Congress leader, who was planning to contest in the Legislative Council elections from the local body constituency, has already started his efforts to lure the TRS elected representatives from the local bodies. It is time to prove once again that the TRS elected representatives of the district do not get lured by money at any cost, he added. The results of the Legislative Council should be a befitting lesson to such leaders, he added.
Legislative Council Deputy Chairman Nethi Vidya Sagar, Government Whip Gongidi Sunitha, Zilla Parishad Chairman Balu Naik, Parliamentary Secretary (Health) Gadari Kishore, MLCs Karne Prabhakar and Pula Ravinder, MLAs Vemula Veeresham, Pailla Sekhar Reddy and J Prabhakar Reddy also attended the meeting.
