Karimnagar: Public representatives from Huzurabad constituency on Monday were categorical in stating that there was no question of associating with former minister and local MLA Eatala Rajender, who, they said, has neither ‘janda’ (flag) nor ‘agenda’ (policy).
Sarpanches, MPTC members, PACS chairmen and other public representatives from Huzurabad and Kamalapur mandals met BC Welfare and Civil Supplies Minister Gangula Kamalakar at his residence in Karimnagar on Monday.
Pouring out their woes before the Minister, they said Rajender had suppressed second rung leaders for his political gains by adopting divide and rule policy.
The former minister victimised a number of Telangana activists and put them behind bars by registering false cases, they said. Stating that Rajender backstabbed the TRS, they said Telangana people were happy with the working style of Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao.
They vowed to continue in the party since they were elected as public representatives on the image of Chandrashekhar Rao and made it clear that there was no question of falling into anybody’s trap.
Stating that there was no space for other political parties in Telangana, they said welfare and development of the State was possible only with TRS. Speaking on the occasion, Kamalakar said all TRS leaders and workers in Huzurabad segment were with the party. All were equal in the party, he said.
Indirectly quoting Rajender’s comments that he (Kamalakar) had not participated in Telangana agitation, the Minister said some people were making false propaganda against him stating that he had not been there in agitation for separate statehood. However, cases were also registered against him during the period of Telangana agitation, he informed.
Asking the leaders and workers to work under the leadership of Chandrashekhar Rao, Kamalakar made it clear that there was no question of tolerating any TRS party worker from Huzurabad being humiliated.
“Recently, leaders (Rajender) have unveiled a new drama in the name of self-respect. However, people of Huzurabad would teach a befitting lesson to those trying to gain sympathy through false propaganda,” he said.
Every day, hundreds of party leaders and workers from Huzurabad were contacting him over phone and expressing solidarity with the party, he added.
