Demanding that Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao tender his resignation by owning moral responsibility for the dismissal of GO No 123 by the Hyderabad High Court, the TPCC said that the dismissal of the controversial GO by the court was the best example that KCR had no understanding of how to rule the State.
Speaking to the media at Gandhi Bhavan on Thursday, TPCC working president Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka said, "It is atrocious on the part of the Chief Minister that he didn't respond on the dismissal of GO No 123 by the High Court."
He also said that the High Court had slapped the TRS government 16 times so far by quashing its orders and decisions, but there was no respect yet in the government for the courts. And instead of introspecting and making a friendlier offer to the displaced, the government was now only planning to approach the Supreme Court to somehow get the GO reinstated.
Pointing out that the farmers celebrated the High Court verdict, he said that the situation came to this pass since the government had never lent its ear to the Congress' opinion on Mallanna Sagar.
He congratulated the Medak district Congress leaders for waging fight against the GO No 123 successfully. He also said that the State government should now give back the lands acquired under GO No 123 from the farmers.
He also castigated the Chief Minister for failing to respond on the agitation going on in his own constituency.
Vikramarka promised that the Congress would continue to battle on behalf of the people for use of the Land Acquisition Act 2013 in coming up with the relief and rehabilitation package. He also asked the government to release a white paper on acquiring 8 lakh acres.
The Congress leader also wanted to know why the CM had failed to initiate action against the education and health ministers for the leakage of the EAMCET-2 question paper. He criticised KCR for being confined to his farmhouse all the time forgetting his job, and being an "absentee Chief Minister".
