Convene assembly session to discuss issues: BJP
BJP assembly floor leader G Kishan Reddy has demanded that the State government must immediately convene assembly session to discuss public issues.
Hanamkonda: BJP assembly floor leader G Kishan Reddy has demanded that the State government must immediately convene assembly session to discuss public issues.
The TRS government failed on all fronts. The implementation of double bedroom houses, fee reimbursement, free education from KG to PG, pending irrigation projects and many other programmes were in doldrums. However, the government was acting in a negligent manner, he pointed out.
Kishan Reddy was here on Monday to appear for a hearing at railway court in connection with rail-roko in which he took part at Kazipet railway station during statehood movement. The opposition has the right to know about the status of welfare programmes, hence assembly session must be convened now, he said.
It was distressing that people in Telangana, where lot of people have committed suicides for the cause of statehood, were again compelled to end their lives due to failure of the government in delivering election promises. The suicide of home guard in Kamareddy district proves the fact, Kishan stated.
The Chief Minister, K Chandrashekar Rao, sometime back claimed that his party would win 98 per cent seats in the next assembly elections. But now went into defensive mode fearing his party’s prospects in the elections in view of the growing public outrage against the ruling party, the BJP leader pointed out.
That was why he set aside development agenda and was introducing programmes offering personal benefits to TRS workers in the form of farmer coordination committees. Caste specific programmes like sheep units, fish seeds distribution and others were also aimed at appeasing certain sections.
But in the distribution of sheep units, the only share of the beneficiaries was being used to purchase the cattle. There was no contribution from the State and no account related to Central contribution, he alleged.
The CM once claimed that Telangana was rich State with surplus budget but has rendered the State debt-ridden with lack of proper planning and administrative skills. The proposed land survey would end up being a futile exercise like integrated household survey that yielded nothing, Kishan Reddy noted.
Moreover, the collectors of the newly formed districts and the revenue officials were inexperienced to carry out the survey in an effective manner. It was sad that the CM was keeping the local bodies aside in the process of the survey. The CM was also taking the assembly into confidence, he said.
The TRS government has also failed to come up with welfare measures for 40 per cent population, who lives in urban parts. The SC/ST/BC and minority corporations were ineffective in offering loans to unemployed youth, he added.
The party Warangal urban district president Rao Padma, state vice-president M Dharma Rao, general secretary Ch Sambamurthy, Kishan Morcha state president G Madhusudhan Reddy, official spokesperson A Rakesh Reddy and others were present.
