KTR Responses On Twitter To Fake Questions: Congress
The Telangana Congress asked IT Minister K T Rama Rao to share his office address and the timings for people to meet him to express their grievances.
Hyderabad | 9th August 2020
Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) Treasurer Gudur Narayana Reddy on Sunday asked IT Minister K T Rama Rao to share his office address where, and the timings when, people could meet him to express their grievances on the problems being faced by them.
Reacting to the #AskKTR campaign of the minister on Twitter on Sunday, Reddy said that the campaign was a publicity stunt to grab headlines in the newspapers.
Most of the questions were posted from fake IDs, and KTR gave replies selectively, Reddy alleged.
"A minister should be available to the people at his office and home all the time, or should have fixed timings when the common people can meet them to make representations. But no TRS minister has a permanent address. Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao lives in a palace called Pragathi Bhavan to which no one, including ministers and MLAs, has any access. There is no Secretariat. Some ministers are operating on a part-time basis from temporary offices in different parts of Hyderabad. There is no way that the people can connect with the ministers to get their problems solved," he said.
Reddy said that KTR was handling several important portfolios including municipal administration & urban development, industries, and information technology. Therefore he must start acting in a mature manner and provide easy access to him to the common people, he said.
"Instead of connecting with the people, KTR is focused on performing some stunts on the social media to get himself some cheap publicity," he said.
The Congress leader pointed out that not all the citizens were capable of using Twitter or other social media platforms.
"Not everyone knows how to post their complaint in a limited number of characters. The poor people look for someone who can listen to their grievances and resolve them. But the KCR government has deprived the people of the opportunity to express their grievances. The people then have no option but to suffer in silence. And all the while, KCR, KTR and other ministers make tall claims that their government is doing fine," he said.
