Warangal Urban: Stating that the voters in Greater Warangal Municipal Corporation (GWMC) and other municipalities in the State had taught a lesson to the BJP for its false propaganda in the municipal elections, Panchayat Raj Minister Errabelli Dayakar Rao on Monday asked the BJP leaders to stop lying and ensure release of funds from the Centre if they are truly committed to the development of the State.
Speaking to the media here, Rao said the people of Warangal had once again reposed faith in the leadership of Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao, and MAUD Minister KT Rama Rao by voting for TRS candidates in the GWMC election.
“The TRS won the GWMC elections with a good majority. As we promised during the election campaign, we will strive to change the face of Warangal. You can see the change in six months,” he said and thanked the voters.
Stating that the BJP leaders tried to mislead the people with their false propaganda, he said the Centre had not sanctioned sufficient funds to the State, but the BJP leaders claimed that they had ensured sanction of hundreds of crores of rupees for the development of Warangal city.
“At least now, the BJP leaders should strive to bring more funds to the State. They should also ensure help from the Centre to check the Covid-19 pandemic,” he added.
He also said that the team work under the guidance of Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao and development works taken up by the State government had helped the TRS retain the GWMC.
Tribal Welfare Minister Satyavathi Rathod, MLAs Dasyam Vinay Bhaskar, A Ramesh, Challa Dharma Reddy, MLC Kadiyam Srihari and others were present at the press meet.
