KCR Speaking Lies About Electricity Bill: BJP

BJP State president Bandi Sanjay offered to resign if KCR could show anything in the proposed Electricity (Amendment) Bill about installing meters for pumpsets.
Hyderabad | 12th September 2022
Telangana BJP president Bandi Sanjay Kumar on Monday lashed out at Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao for making "false accusations" against the Centre that it had introduced an electricity bill making it mandatory for the States to install electricity meters to agriculture pumpsets.

Addressing a massive rally at the Ramlila grounds at Qutbullapur on the city outskirts before embarking on the fourth phase of his Praja Sangrama Yatra, Sanjay said that KCR had completely misled the State Assembly by showing some outdated papers.

Displaying the proposed Electricity (Amendment) Bill, the BJP State president said, "Here is the bill. Let KCR show if there is any provision on installation of meters for agriculture pumpsets. He should resign from the Chief Minister's post and apologise to the people. If I am wrong, I will quit my MP seat," he said.

Stating that he was ready to prove KCR wrong, Sanjay alleged that the Telangana government was trying to impose a burden of another Rs 4,000 crore by increasing power tariffs in the name of installing meters to farm pumpsets and throw the blame on the Centre.

"If the meters are installed, we will break the walls of Pragathi Bhavan," he warned.

On the allegation made by the Chief Minister that the Centre was bringing pressure on the Telangana government to sell the assets of the Road Transport Corporation (RTC), Sanjay said that it was KCR who was conspiring to lease out the assets of the TSRTC, including depots and lands, to his family members and stooges for 99 years.

"We will not allow the privatisation of RTC's assets at any cost," he said.

Ridiculing the TRS chief projecting himself as a national leader, the BJP leader said in a sarcastic tone, "Desh ka neta, din bhar peetha, farmhouse me sotha, amas-punnami ko baahar aatha." (This national leader consumes liquor all through the day, sleeps in his farmhouse, and comes out once in a blue moon). The Chief Minister had converted Pragathi Bhavan into a virtual KCR Bar and Restaurant, Sanjay alleged.

"He had also announced a payment of Rs 1,000 for pointing out every pothole. If he wants to pay the money, his entire State budget will not be sufficient - there are that many potholes on the roads all over the city," he said.

He also alleged that there was no proper drainage system in Hyderabad, while the TRS leaders were encroaching nalas and tanks. "KCR had even promised to make Musi river water as pure as coconut water. Can he drink the same or at least with take a bath with it?" he asked.
