TRS Asks Congress 12 Questions On TDP Alliance
The TRS asked the Congress if it could get it in writing from Naidu that he would stop fighting against the state's projects, return the Polavaram mandals, and release the state's rightful share of waters.
Hyderabad | 9th October 2018
Telangana caretaker Minister and senior TRS leader T Harish Rao today asked Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) chief N Uttam Kumar Reddy why his party had "shamelessly" joined hands with its arch rival, TDP chief and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu.
Rao released a letter comprising 12 queries and sought answers to them from the Congress chief. Expressing anguish and dismay at the Congress for forging an "unethical" alliance with the TDP which was basically born against the Congress, he asked how the Congress thought that Naidu, who had denied river waters to Telangana, opposed irrigation projects and came in the way of the development of the new state, would change his stances now.
Was Naidu, who wrote 30 letters against the Palamur Ranga Reddy lift irrigation project to the Centre, ready to reverse his stand now and announce that the project was genuine, Rao asked.
"First he fought against the creation of Telangana, and even after the formation of Telangana, Naidu continues to conspire against the progress of our state. Can Uttam Kumar Reddy get it in writing from Naidu that the latter will abstain from fighting against our irrigation projects, return the 7 Polavaram mandals, give back the 460 MW Siler power project and release our rightful share of waters from the rivers?" Rao asked.
Chandrababu Naidu was noted for coming in the way of Telangana's growth and had even moved courts against Telangana's projects, and his now allying with the Congress to come to power in the state was a huge conspiracy to suppress Telangana even more, Rao claimed.
