BJP leader and Dubbaka MLA M Raghunandan Rao today slammed Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao for allegedly having used the recent Budget session
of the state legislature as a platform to "gain popularity" with the people of the state.
Speaking to the media, the MLA alleged that the CM had given developmental funds of Rs 250 crore to the Warangal Municipal Corporation and Rs 150 crore to the Khammam Municipal Corporation after finding out that the BJP was going to "clinch the two corporations".
Further, he said that the ruling party had continuously raised issue of the delay in establishing the Kazipet railway coach factory and the Bayyaram steel plant only in a bid to negatively impact the saffron party's prospects in the upcoming Nagarjuna Sagar by-election.
"Why did the TRS keep raising the issue of the Kazipet railway coach factory and the Bayyaram steel plant? The concerned Union Ministers have already made statements on both the matters," Rao fumed.
Condemning the decision of Speaker Pocharam Srinivas Reddy to cut his microphone connection when he was talking about the problems being faced by the people of Dubbaka, his constituency, the leader also alleged that the Telangana Assembly was used by the TRS leaders to sing paeans for the CM, and not to meaningfully discuss the problems facing the people of the state.
He demanded that the state government involve the BJP in any future meetings of the Business Advisory Committee and that it provide a room for the BJPLP on the Assembly premises.
