Hyderabad: It is time for the people of Telangana to chose between the progressive Telangana Rashtra Samithi and an obstructive Opposition to decide the future of the State as well as fate of the next generation, IT and Industries Minister K T Rama Rao said on Friday.
“TRS is seeking the people’s judgement against the Opposition parties which were only creating hindrances on the path of development of the State and attempting to stall various development projects, Rama Rao said.
“We have a Chief Minister who introduced schemes such as Rythu Bandhu for the benefit of farmers and Opposition parties that were responsible for killings of farmers in Mudigonda and Basheerbagh shootouts. People have to chose between uninterrupted power supply and frequent power-cuts,” he said.
Addressing around 300 BJP leaders and activists from Kamareddy Assembly constituency who joined the TRS at the Minister’s camp office in Begumpet, Rama Rao pointed out that unlike the Congress and TDP governments in the past, the TRS government gave adequate funds for development of Assembly constituencies represented by the Congress and other Opposition parties without any discrimination. “The previous governments of Congress and TDP did not provide adequate funds to constituencies represented by the TRS in the past. Now in the Opposition, they are making all attempts to stop the ongoing projects by filing court cases,” he said.
Comparing the progressive attitude of TRS and the regressive agenda of the Opposition parties, the Minister said the Congress party leaders were scared of the forthcoming election as they are aware of their fate. “Unable to fight the elections directly, the Opposition parties are resorting to mudslinging on the Chief Minister’s family. But we cannot expect better politics from a party filled with a TPCC president who burnt Rs 2.5 crore of illegal money in his own car and another leader who was accused of illegal human trafficking,” he said.
The Minister stated that the Congress leaders are of the view that they should not be arrested despite their illegal activities. He pointed out that Congress party which held a public meeting in Sangareddy did not even defend its leader Jagga Reddy who was arrested for human trafficking. The Minister assured that Kamareddy Assembly constituency would be developed on par with Siricilla constituency if people voted TRS candidate Gampa Govardhan.
