Gajwel: Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao on Wednesday strongly objected to Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister and TDP President N Chandrababu Naidu’s remarks that there was no water left in Krishna River and people of both Telugu States must share the Godavari River water. He reiterated that Chandrababu Naidu was conspiring to control the affairs of Telangana State through his proxies in the Telangana Congress party.
“At the Kodad public meeting today, Chandrababu Naidu presented his proposal and made the Congress leaders including Rahul Gandhi endorse his proposal. It is evident that he is conspiring to deny Telangana its rightful share of Krishna River water, by misleading people and the Telangana Congress leaders who got accustomed to slavery, nodded their heads in approval,” he said.
In his last public meeting in a series of Praja Ashirwada Sabha meetings on Wednesday, the Chief Minister exposed several attempts by Chandrababu Naidu to sabotage creation of separate Telangana State and later on, obstructed its growth prospects on various counts. Further, he explained the dangers of putting the State in the hands of the Prajakutami which could lead to the post-bifurcation era of atrocities and suppression on people of Telangana by the Andhra rulers.
“If KCR wins, Telangana will get Kaleshwaram project. But if Congress-TDP Prajakutami wins, it will be a bane,” he declared. He urged people to decide the fate of Telangana State on December 7, in their own favour.
Terming the Congress leaders as power-mongers who could stoop to any lows, Chandrashekhar Rao held the Congress party responsible for merger of the then Hyderabad State in Andhra Pradesh forcefully. He recalled that no leader from Telangana Congress dared to object when the then Chief Minister of undivided Andhra Pradesh N Kiran Kumar Reddy refused to release funds for Telangana region. “Even today, no Congress leader dared to question Chandrababu Naidu when he said there was no water in Krishna River. Should we, people of Telangana, also accept and endorse the lies of Naidu?” he questioned the people who shouted a ‘NO’ in unison.
