Hyderabad | 4th October 2018
Caretaker Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao today again vilified the Congress, calling it a curse to Telangana.
Addressing a public meeting at Nalgonda along with caretaker minister G Jagadish Reddy, KCR took on the previous governments for deceiving the people of Nalgonda in the name of the Nagarjuna Sagar project that was eventually shifted 19 km down towards the Andhra region. The then leaders had conspired to deny its rightful share of the Nagarjuna Sagar waters to the Telangana region, causing the latter to have several barren lands. The Godavari waters would soon be given to the villages of Nalgonda for their standing crops, KCR said.
KCR also claimed that plenty of destruction of human resources and professional communities had happened in the Telangana region due to the "ulterior motives" of the erstwhile Andhra rulers, who had gotten the police to kill several Telangana protagonists. The Congress and TDP rulers had ignored the welfare of the Telangana region by design, and there were many atrocities that the Andhra leaders had indulged in that caused serious injustice to Telangana and resulted in the state taking a back seat in all sectors, KCR said.
He slammed local Congress leaders including K Jana Reddy and PCC chief N Uttam Kumar Reddy who he claimed did not know anything and were making false charges due to that. And while the TRS government had been making efforts to irrigate one crore acres by completing the various irrigation projects, the Congress was without shame moving the courts against them, he lamented. Uttam Kumar Reddy had even run away from the Assembly skipping the presentation on irrigation projects that he (KCR) had made, KCR alleged.
He praised power minister G Jagadish Reddy who he said may not be tall as Uttam Kumar Reddy or as stout as Jana Reddy, but was stronger than both in his capability for development, and was almost solely responsible for getting a power plant to Damaracherla in Nalgonda district through which 4,000 MW of power would be available in two years.
"Jana Reddy and Uttam Kumar Reddy did not even think of power, but we got Rs 30,000 crores for the purpose," KCR claimed. "And Jana Reddy, Uttam Kumar Reddy and Komatireddy Venkat Reddy did not oppose then Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy offering Rs 7,000 crores for Chittoor waters but denying even Rs 1 for Telangana," he added.
The TRS boss appealed to the people to not believe the opposition's "misinformation" campaign.
"While the Congress leaders swallowed all the funds released for the district, ignored the people who had been fighting for 25 years and basically destroyed the district, our Nalgonda MLAs have turned the lands green. We have sanctioned Rs 250 crores for completing three canals in the segment, and have taken up the development of all segments. If I speak falsehoods do not vote for the TRS, but if you believe me then defeat the opposition to teach them a befitting lesson," he said.
