Hyderabad: Leader of Opposition in Telangana Legislative Council Mohammed Ali Shabbir accused Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao of intimidating leaders of Opposition parties in the State.
Party senior leader Mohd Ali Shabbir says the Chief Minister has created a shield of lies and deception around him
Speaking after paying rich tributes to former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi on his 25th death anniversary at a function organised by Congress MP V Hanumantha Rao at the Rajiv Gandhi statue at Somajiguda on Saturday, Shabbir Ali said the Congress would never get influenced with such threats.
“We will continue to raise people’s issues and expose the failures of the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) government. The Congress brought freedom for the country and granted statehood to Telangana. While doing so, its leaders faced several difficulties.
Therefore, it would be an honour for the Congress leaders to go to jail for the sake of common people and it is not uncommon for them,” he said.
He said that the Congress leaders and workers were ready to have a direct confrontation with the ruling TRS on public issues. He said that the Congress believed in the ideology of revolutionary poet Bismil Azimabadi who said “Sarfaroshi Ki Tamanna Ab Hamaray Dil Mein Hai, Dekhna Hai Zor Kitan Bazuai Kaatil Mein Hai,” (The desire to make a sacrifice is in our hearts; Let us see what strength there is in the arms of our executioner).
Shabbir Ali said the TRS government had been trying to suppress the voice of Opposition leaders since beginning. However, he said the Congress leaders had been exposing the failures of K Chandrashekar Rao and his government at regular intervals.
“We will not keep quiet on the injustices being done to the people. Chandrashekar Rao has created a shield of lies and deception around him and doesn’t want anyone to expose his face.
Earlier, Shabbir Ali recalled the services of Rajiv Gandhi for the country. He said after Mahatma Gandhi, the sacrifices of former Prime Ministers Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi would always be remembered in the history.
He described Rajiv Gandhi as the architect of modern India and said it was due to his vision that India had witnessed a technological revolution.
