Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao today said that the merger of the Congress Legislature Party into the TRS Legislature Party was done as per Constitutional norms.
He said this in the special session of the Assembly when the Congress members protested against the TRS "suppressing them in violation of democratic norms", and criticized the Congress for trying to make baseless allegations and targeting the TRS for mileage.
"What we can do if Congress MLAs join the TRS?" he demanded to know.
He pointed out that the Congress had experienced a similar fate in other States, too, and that the party was weakening across the country.
KCR also asked the Congress members to stop making a hue and cry and levying false charges regarding heritage structures and irrigation projects. The State government would appoint an expert committee on heritage structures and take a decision on Irrum Manzil later, he said.
Promising to continue the free power supply and Rythu Bandhu schemes for farmers, KCR asked the Congress and BJP members to support the schemes.
