New TPCC president N. Uttam Kumar Reddy hit out at TRS government under Mr K. Chandrasekhar Rao for only being “interested in strengthening family rule” rather than developing Telangana, which had been gifted by Congress president Sonia Gandhi.


Taking charge of the TPCC mantle on Sunday, Uttam said KCR was encouraging defections of legislators into TRS and wondered if there's just one community and one family in Telangana? "Why have no women, no SCs been given Cabinet berths?" he asked.


TPCC president, and Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka, as TPCC working president, took charge of their posts on Sunday at a meeting held at Gandhi Bhavan in the presence of several party leaders from the state and hundreds of party workers with huge fan fare of car rally and cheers from party workers. Outgoing president Ponnala Laxmaiah handed over the charge to Mr Uttam Kumar Reddy in the presence of senior party leaders Jaipal Reddy, D. Srinivas, K. Janareddy and AICC secretary R.C. Kuntia.


Speaking at the meeting he accused the TRS leadership of dashing the hopes of crores of Telangana people by 'imposing family rule instead of concentrating on the welfare of the public'. The TPCC president promised to give more representation to youth and women in all party posts and said that he would also involve all senior leaders of the party in key decision making.


Referring to the ongoing CID investigations into alleged irregularities in the Indiramma Housing, taken up during the erstwhile Congress government in which he had served as housing minister, he said: "If any irregularities are proved, then hang me; we are not afraid of any investigations and probes, but in the name of investigation if you try to harass the gullible public, we will not tolerate and resist all such moves. What happened to the two-bed room houses that the government had promised?”


He said that the Chief Minister had been making statements that the Congress was finished in Telangana, which everyone knew was impossible. He said people were already angry with KCR over his false promises.
