Hyderabad: With Medak district authorities confirming the land encroachments by Jamuna Hatcheries owned by BJP MLA Eatala Rajender’s family, Government Whip Balka Suman demanded that Rajender must accept his crime and apologise to owners of lands occupied by his family and also people of Telangana. He said even after the Medak district collector presented all the evidence, Rajender was still denying his crimes.
Speaking to mediapersons at TRS Legislative Party office here on Tuesday, Suman said even after his crimes were proven, Eatala Rajender continues to blame the TRS government for harassing him and even accusing the district collector himself. He urged people of Huzurabad Assembly constituency to realise the facts and question him at all his public appearances. He also demanded that the officials probe into all other allegations against the former Minister to ascertain the facts and initiate action, if proven guilty.
Further, the Government Whip was angry over lack of response from the Centre to relentless protests by the TRS MPs in Delhi over paddy procurement. He felt that the BJP government has become thick-skinned to respond to farmers problems. He also slammed the Congress and BJP MPs from Telangana for their failure to take up issues pertaining to Telangana State in the Parliament.
“Both Congress and BJP MPs could not get any issue pertaining to the State addressed by the Centre. Instead, they are busy partying in Delhi. They have no moral right to question or criticise the TRS whose MPs stalled the Parliamentary proceedings over the farmers’ issues,” he said. He slammed former Telangana State Public Service Commission member Vittal who joined BJP. He said it has become a fashion for many Telangana agitators to enjoy posts in TRS government and criticise it after their term expired.
MLC Puranam Satish condemned the allegations by Eatala Rajender and his wife Jamuna against Medak district collector S Harish. He sought criminal action against the couple for trying to intimidate the district collector and other officials. He demanded that the BJP suspend Rajender if the party has any morals .
