Hyderabad: State Congress has strongly come out in support of All Indian Congress Committee (AICC) general secretary Digvijay Singh’s tweets on ‘fake website’ being operated by the State police to encourage Muslim youths to join ISIS.
Leader of Opposition in Telangana Legislative Council Mohammed Ali Shabbir on Saturday asserted that Digvijay Singh has in his possession evidence to substantiate his charge. In fact, Digvijay Singh took up the gauntlet. He would give details to the investigation agency, he said.
He said the Congress would organise a meeting in front of the house of Minister for Animal Husbandry Talasani Srinivas Yadav or at Monda Market, if the police gave the permission. He dared the Minister to try to stop the meeting.
Shabbir Ali alleged that the TRS government had failed to live up to its promises made in its election manifesto. Addressing the media at Gandhi Bhavan, Shabbir Ali alleged that all-round development of Hyderabad had not happened as claimed by the TRS.
The poor planning by the State government led to lower Swacch Bharat ranking for the city compared to previous year. He said, “Hyderabad’s Swacch Bharat ranking dropped to 22nd position whereas Visakahpatnam stands at 3rd and Tirupati at 9th positions.”
He pointed out that the Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister K T Rama Rao had promised to develop Hyderabad on the lines of New York, Dallas and Istanbul, but miserably failed.
He challenged Rama Rao for a debate on three years’ city development. He said the GHMC was not ready with contingency plan for monsoon season, road development programmes, he said.
Recalling the achievements during Congress regime, he said whatever the progress was visible in Hyderabad today was the result of Rs one lakh crore projects sanctioned by the Congress government. Accusing the State government of failing on every front, Shabbir Ali said health sector was ailing.
Every day there were news reports maternal deaths and deaths of children in government hospitals. Stating that Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao was issuing statements from Prgathi Bhavan, Shabbir Ali said.
