BJP, TRS governments exploiting poor even during coronavirus pandemic: Congress leader Shabbir
- Shabbir accuses BJP government of handing over country to private sector
- KCR buying MPTCs, Councillors to make daughter Kavitha win MLC polls: Shabbir
Kamareddy: Former Minister and ex-Leader of Opposition in Telangana Legislative Council Mohammed Ali Shabbir alleged that the BJP government was trying to hand over the entire country to private companies in the garb of corona relief package.
On Sunday, he distributed food and essential commodities among Asha workers, auto-drivers and other weaker sections in Baswapur village of Bhiknur mandal of Kamareddy district.
Speaking to the media, Shabbir Ali said that the BJP government at the Centre has ruined the country's economy by implementing an unplanned lockdown in the name of preventing spread of Coronavirus. Now, in the name of relief, it is handing over everything to private sector, instead of helping the poor, migrant workers and other weaker sections, he alleged.
Similarly, he said the TRS government has been working for the welfare of KCR family only and to benefit a few contractors. Alleging that both the BJP and TRS government have failed in achieving the actual purpose of lockdown, i.e., preventing coronavirus spread, he said corona cases are on the rise even after 56 days of lockdown. Wine shops were opened even in Red Zones and many people had spent their savings on liquor than food. Today those families are starving and begging for food, he alleged.
Shabbir Ali criticised that Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao is still focussing on winning elections while the entire country is combating coronavirus. He alleged that the CM is busy in buying ZPTC, MPTCs, corporators, councillors from other parties to ensure his daughter K Kavitha's victory in the MLC elections.
KCR is still silent on Andhra Pradesh Government's move to expand Pothyreddypadu Head Regulator to steal Telangana's share of water from Krishna River, he pointed out.
The Congress leader said that history would remember Prime Minister Narender Modi and Chief Minister Chandrashekar Rao as leaders, who exploited common people even during a pandemic.
Earlier, Shabbir Ali also distributed food and financial assistance among physically handicapped and senior citizens at Baswapur village of Bhiknur mandal.
