Warangal: Even after the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) leaders were spitting fire at each other, senior Congress leader Gandra Venkata Ramana Reddy suspected them to be colluding with each other protecting mutual interests.
He alleged that ongoing Jana Chaitanya Yatra led by BJP State unit president K Laxman was sponsored by the ruling TRS party in the State. There has been a secret pact between the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao.
Speaking to the press in Hanamkonda on Friday, Ramana Reddy also alleged that the political front mooted by the Chief Minister was done at the behest of the Prime Minister Modi. The purpose was to divide the Congress votes and thus gain mutual benefit in the State and at the national level and keep Congress away from power.
He appealed the public in the State to vote neither BJP nor TRS as they both were one and the same. Ramana Reddy felt that the minimum support price (MSP) to agriculture produce announced recently by the centre was done in view of the ensuing elections.
The MSP proposed was unscientific in nature and could not benefit the farmers in any way. For the past four years the farmers have been asking to implement Swaminathan Commission recommendations in offering MSP, but the BJP government failed to do so.
There was no MSP offered to chilli, he complained while demanding the centre to review the MSP offered by it. After coming to power Congress would enhance the MSP and set up market intervention fund, he added.
He demanded the BJP leaders to answer why the centre failed to establish railway coach factory in Kazipet, steel plant at Bayyaram and Tribal University at Mahabubabad as promised in AP Reorganisation Act.
Referring to recent news reports that there has been a 50 per cent increase in the black money stashed in foreign banks, the Congress leader pointed out that it reveals the false side of the demonetisation move.
