Hanamkonda: The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) MPs will take up the unfulfilled promises listed in the AP Reorganisation Act-2014 in the ongoing Parliament Winter Session, TDP State organising secretary Gattu Prasad Babu said.
Speaking to media persons here on Friday, he criticised the TRS government for its failure to pursue the Central government on assurances given to the Telangana State incorporated in the Reorganisation Act.
"Many assurances enacted in the Act are not being implemented by the Centre. This has been resulting in hardship to lakhs of people," he said, accusing the TRS government for its failure to exert pressure on the Centre. He said that there was no effort on part of the TRS government to pursue the major provisions assured under the Act such as establishment of steel plant in Bayyaram, railway coach factory, AIIMS, tribal university etc. He found fault with the Centre for not resolving the disputes between Telangana and Andhra Pradesh over division of assets that were listed in the Schedule IX and X of the AP Reorganisation Act, 2014.
"The State government has failed to get national project status to the Kaleshwaram Lift Irrigation Project (KLIP). The government is yet to secure the status of National Festival even though the biennial Medaram Sammakka Saralamma Jatara has assumed global significance due to its increasing popularity and patronage," Prasad Babu said. He said that the KCR government failed to secure funds for the proposed Kakatiya Mega Textile Park in Warangal. The TRS government lacked commitment on SC categorisation, he alleged. Prasad Babu urged the TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu to tell the party MPs to raise their voice in the Parliament in the ongoing Winter Session.
Senior leaders Hanmakonda Sambaiah, Bairapaka Prabhakar, Vallabhi Srinivas, Kumaraswamy, Ravinder Gupta, Pittala Srinivas and Kagitala Shankar were among others present.
