Party chief K Laxman says failed governance prevailing in State comes down heavily on the Chief Minister
Sangareddy: Newly-elected BJP State unit president K Laxman strongly condemned the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) government’s allegation that the NDA government had done nothing for Telangana so far. In fact, he blamed the State government for failing to acquire land for some of the Central government’s projects, thereby delaying them.
Addressing a meeting of BJP cadre of Medak district in Sangareddy on Tuesday, he said that the Central government had sanctioned Rs 200 crore for the Horticulture University in Mulugu, Rs 300 crore for NIPER (National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research), Rs 100 crore for the development of Siddipet, 8,500 sanctions for housing in Medak district alone, 90,000 houses for Telangana, Rs 21 crore for each of the six municipalities in Medak district, Rs 43,000 crore for the construction of four-lane roads across Telangana, Manoharabad-Kothapally railway line and Rs 100 crore for Swachh Bharat in Medak were all meant to develop Medak district in particular and Telangana as a whole.
He blamed the TRS government for failing to acquire land for projects like National Industrial and Manufacturing Zone (NIMZ), four-lane NH 61, Krishi Vigyan Kendra and other developmental activities. He questioned why the Chief Minister was only interested in building 2BHK houses in Erravelli and Narsannapeta, when poor people without proper housing were living all across the district.
He alleged that Rs 85 lakh which were directly allotted to each gram panchayat were being wrongly utilised for payment of past arrears, when they were actually meant for development of gram panchayats. He spoke about underutilisation of SC/ST sub-plan funds in the State and termed the government anti dalit and anti tribal.
He said that the redesign of irrigation projects were only meant to fill the pockets of contractors and questioned why projects like Koilsagar, Nettempadu, Bheema and other pending projects were not on top priority of the government. He asked what steps were taken by the government to address issues like cattle being sent to slaughter houses, high migration among farmers, large scale farmers’ suicides after formation of Telangana, protection of traditional skilled professions, high unemployment among youth and provision of drinking water to rural households.
Observing that the people of Telangana had already started getting a reality check done about the failed governance in the State, he said the only alternative in the State was BJP. He concluded saying that the BJP would work towards strengthening the party in rural areas and would become a party of weaker sections.
