Hyderabad: Leader of the Congress in Legislative Assembly Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka on Tuesday alleged that Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao was taking away constitutional rights of the people in the State.
He accused the chief minister of making a mockery of the Indian Constitution by allowing 12 Congress MLAs into ruling TRS fold.
Speaking to the media, Vikramarka made it clear that the 12 Congress MLAs, who had joined the TRS, had never announced that they were merging the party with the TRS.
He stated that the rebel Congress MLAs had announced that they were joining the TRS on different dates and asked the chief minister as to how he would call it to a proper merger.
Vikramarka came down heavily on the chief minister for misleading the Assembly by stating that the CLP had merged itself with their party.
He said they had lodged a complaint with the Assembly Speaker requesting him to take action against all the Congress MLAs, who have announced of joining the TRS.
He said the issue of merger would not have come to fore if the Speaker had taken action against the Congress MLAs as per the 10th schedule of the Indian Constitution.
Commenting on the RTC strike, he expressed his shock over the comments made by the in-charge managing director of the corporation Sunil Sharma.
MLC T Jeevan Reddy said that the High Court of the State had also never termed the strike as illegal. He alleged that the RTC managing director had crossed his limits by announcing that he would not allow the RTC workers to resume their duties. He mentioned that the strike had become a big issue due to the failure of the chief minister.
The MLC said that the corporation was incurring a loss of Rs 720 crore due to hike in diesel price. He also said that the corporation was being burdened with the subsidy amount of Rs 500 crore.
