KCR Diverting Municipalities' Funds: Congress

The leaders also asked the TRS government to explain the "irregularities" in the spending of the funds of the Ramagundam Municipal Corporation.
Hyderabad | 24th January 2021
Congress leaders MLC T Jeevan Reddy and MLA D Sridhar Babu today demanded that Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao and IT and Industries Minister K T Rama Rao issue an explanation regarding the "irregularities" in the spending of the funds sanctioned to the Ramagundam Municipal Corporation (RMC), and the utilisation of the funds for the SC and ST sub-plans, meant to bring development to the two marginalised communities.

Addressing the media, they alleged that the Peddapalli district Collector and the RMC Commissioner had been negligent in allocating the funds of the sub-plan in a proper manner.

They lashed out at the CM for protecting such officials, and condemned the arrest of the Congress leaders who had attempted to submit a representation on the issue of the irregularities to the officials concerned at the RMC meeting held on January 7.

"The actions of the CM have left the local MLA and the Mayor of the corporation feeling insecure about the future of the area. They feel that the proposals made at the general body meeting will not be approved, and that the RMC will not receive adequate funds for development," they said.

The Congress leaders also expressed their displeasure at the police "attack" on the conference hall where the general body meeting was being held.

The Congress has been rebuking the TRS government on the issue of the "misallocation and diversion" of the funds meant for the development of the state's municipalities. Recently, TPCC chief N Uttam Kumar Reddy also assailed the Chief Minister for "misusing" such funds, and alleged that there was no transparency in the spending of developmental funds by the state's local administrative bodies, while T Jeevan Reddy accused the TRS government of "looting public money" through the Kaleshwaram Lift Irrigation Project.
