Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee chief N Uttam Kumar Reddy today alleged that Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao was talking about a third front only to divert the people's attention from the Congress party's Praja Chaitanya Bus Yatra, which he claimed was becoming a big success.
"A Chief Minister who never went to the Secretariat is now dreaming of becoming a national leader. A person who is responsible for the suicides of over 4,000 farmers in Telangana wants to make policies on agriculture at the national level. This is ridiculous and condemnable," he said while addressing a press conference in Nizamabad today before starting for Armoor as part of the party's Praja Chaitanya Bus Yatra which entered its fifth day today.
The proposed third front would remain a non-starter as the Congress was all set to win the next elections both in the state and at the national level, Reddy claimed.
"Forget being king or kingmaker, KCR will not have any relevance as the TRS will not win a single Lok Sabha seat in the next elections," the TPCC chief said.
Reddy said that the TRS leaders had failed to call on a single one of the families of the farmers who had committed suicides. "In fact, there is a need to conduct a debate on KCR's rule rather than on a third front," he said.
Stating that the Praja Chaithanya Bus Yatra was going on successfully, Reddy said that the elections would be held in December itself and the Congress would set up the next government in the state. Claiming that KCR's surveys were bogus, he exuded confidence that the Congress would get 100 seats and the TRS only 10 seats.
Reddy also slammed a section of the media for creating a hype around KCR's announcement. He said that the mainstream media was not giving space with the same zeal to incidents of farmers' suicides and other failures of the TRS government.
Leader of Opposition in the Legislative Council Mohammed Ali Shabbir said that KCR wanted a third front because he was afraid of CBI cases.
