Intensifying her election campaign for the upcoming Telangana Assembly elections, TRS leader and Nizamabad MP K Kavitha called the Congress' alliance with its arch-rival the TDP, the TJS and the CPI, unholy.
"The alliance of these parties does not enjoy the support of the people, and its candidates will lose their deposits in the December 7 polls," she said.
Addressing a public meeting at Ramajipet village in Jagtial district, she said that previous MLAs of the Jagtial constituency including Jeevan Reddy of the Congress and L Ramana of the TDP had failed to bring in funds for the development of the segment, and that the TRS candidate Dr Sanjay Rao should be elected its development.
She also slammed Jeevan Reddy for "misguiding the people" by claiming that the Sriram Sagar Project (SRSP) had no water, and for making false allegations against the TRS. She said that the people of Jagtial were well aware of the abundance of waters in the SRSP, and asked them not to get misled by the statements and promises of the Congress-led Praja Kutami (the alliance of the Congress, the TDP, the TJS and the CPI).
Pitching for another term for the TRS, Kavitha reiterated the primacy of the welfare and the development of the people of the state for the TRS, and stated that the TRS regime had set a record at the national level by spending 43% of the state's budget on welfare activities alone.
She also promised that the TRS, if voted back to power, would take steps to resolve the issues of the beedi workers, pensioners, SCs, STs, BCs and youth. She said that special care would be taken to ensure loans to SCs, STs and BCs, and that pensions would be hiked. There would also be a Rs 3,016 unemployment allowance for the youth, Asara pensions to all those above 58 years of age (instead of to those above 65 years of age), and an increase in the retirement age for government employees to 61 years.
