Refuting IT Minister K T Rama Rao's criticism, Congress Legislature Party leader K Jana Reddy today said that the TRS would be buried the moment the Congress returned to power in Telangana and at the Centre.
He also claimed that all TRS leaders would join his party.
Speaking at Assembly Media Hall on Thursday along with Alampur MLA S A Sampath Kumar, Reddy said that conducting counter press meets against people like KTR was lowering himself, and that this was the last counter press meet against KTR.
Elaborating on his claim that when the Congress came to power all TRS leaders would join it, Reddy said that he was actually opposed to political defections. He recalled that he had resigned from his post when he shifted to another political party. And as for Kodangal MLA A Revanth Reddy, Jana Reddy said that Revanth Reddy had joined the Congress as the TDP was on the verge of extinction in Telangana.
But the TRS needed to be responded to in kind since it had made defections part of its core philosophy, he said. He accused the TRS of even inducting Telangana betrayers into the party in its spree of getting leaders to defect to it.
An angry Jana Reddy also thundered that a "power-drunk" KTR had crossed all limits when he likened Congress leaders to "Alibaba's 40 thieves". He also alleged that the IT minister had formed a "gang" to attack the Congress.
KTR had a habit of taking credit for schemes launched by the Congress, Reddy claimed. For example, he said, the Congress was the first party to raise the fluoride problem, and had allotted funds to eradicate it, but the TRS routinely took credit for it. The CLP leader said that he had also laid the foundation stone and allocated Rs. 100 crores for the water scheme launched by KTR for 66 villages. And it was the Congress that had brought the Krishna waters to Hyderabad and solved the water scarcity in the capital.
The TRS should stop making allegations against the Congress and instead prove them, Reddy said. For example, instead of saying that irregularities had taken place in the Indiramma housing schemes, the government should prove it and punish the guilty, he said.
