Hyderabad | 10th January 2021
TPCC president and Nalgonda MP N Uttam Kumar Reddy today strongly condemned the Telangana government's "repeated protocol violations", claiming that the regime had been ignoring the elected representatives of the Congress.
Speaking to the press after visiting the Mattapally bridge in Huzurnagar in his constituency, he said that the works for the bridge, which connects Mattapally village in Suryapet district to Tangedu village in Andhra Pradesh's Guntur, were initiated by the Congress regime in early 2014.
"The construction began in January 2014 in the undivided state of Andhra Pradesh, and was completed in 2018. The bridge reduces the distance between Suryapet and Guntur by almost 50 km, helping commuters save both time and money. This bridge, constructed almost wholly due to the efforts of the Congress regime, has helped hundreds of commuters in both AP and Telangana. However, just to deprive the Congress from getting the credit for its construction, the succeeding TRS government delayed its inauguration by not laying the approach roads to the bridge. The government has now become an expert at claiming as its own, the achievements of the previous Congress regime. This bridge is the most obvious example of how the government is cheating the people by making false claims to exaggerate its achievements," he alleged.
Expressing his displeasure at not being invited to the inauguration of the bridge, Reddy said, "Even though the bridge falls under in my Lok Sabha constituency, the government did have the decency to even extend a proper invitation to me for its recent inauguration. I will not tolerate such insulting behaviour, and will lodge a complaint with Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla against the government for violation of protocol."
He also assailed the government for allegedly claiming to have resolved the power crisis in Telangana after "simply inaugurating" the power projects started during the Congress regime.
The leader vowed to soon expose all the lies of the government.
Talking about the ongoing farmers' protests, Reddy said that the Congress would be organising dharnas in front of all the district Collectorates on January 11 to demand the withdrawal of the Centre's new farm bills, and to demand that the TRS government repeal its decision to do away with the
