Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Reddy today profusely thanked the people of Huzurnagar for "reposing confidence in him and his functioning" by extending overwhelming support to the TRS candidate S Saidi Reddy and ensuring his victory with a record majority in the by-election.
Speaking to the media after the announcement of the Huzurnagar Assembly by-election result, the Chief Minister said that though he could not visit the constituency due to bad weather conditions, the people had given a stupendous majority to his party's candidate, and that it showed how strongly the people felt about the TRS.
"This is not a routine or normal verdict. The people have given the verdict after thinking deeply. The by-election was held almost one year after the TRS came to power for the second time, and is a kind of referendum on our performance. The election result will work as a great tonic for the government. It will enable us to work with greater vigour and enthusiasm," he said.
KCR said that the Opposition leaders had made several false allegations and had carried on a vicious campaign against his government, and had also resorted to personal accusations against him. However the people showed that they saw through all of that by giving his party a thumping majority of 43,000 votes. He said that at least now the Opposition parties should stop unnecessary criticism.
KCR also promised that the wishes and aspirations of the people of the constituency would be fulfilled "100%", and said that the party would hold a public meeting at Huzurnagar on October 26 to thank the people.
