Hyderabad: Public Undertakings Committee chairman and Armoor MLA A Jeevan Reddy on Sunday ridiculed BJP State president Bandi Sanjay Kumar’s call for a million march demanding recruitment for government jobs in the State. He advised the latter to organise a million march to Delhi against the Narendra Modi government for its failure to provide two crore jobs as promised during the elections, before criticising the State government. “People are eager to join such a million march in protest against the anti-people’s policies of the BJP government at the Centre,” he said.
Speaking to mediapersons at TRS Legislative Party office here, Jeevan Reddy criticised the BJP government at the Centre for selling government assets. He said the BJP government was also selling all the five elements in the country to the corporate companies. He said the BJP State leaders were blind to Telangana’s development during the TRS rule, even though the Union Minister keep appreciating the initiatives of the State government whose numerous schemes were being replicated by the Centre as well as the State government. All the reports published by the Union government and the State government as well as independent organisations indicate the development of the State over the last seven years.
Jeevan Reddy also found fault with the arguments of BJP MLA M Raghunandan Rao over the State government’s decision to transform the Gachibowli sports complex into Telangana Institute of Medical Sciences (TIMS). He said TIMS was developed to combat Covid-19 pandemic and provide better as well as affordable services to the people of the State during the pandemic. He questioned whether Raghunandan Rao was of the opinion that there should be no specialty hospital for treating Covid and other patients.
“We are giving priority to both sports and health. The State government is constructing mini stadiums in every Assembly constituency with Rs 3 crore each. If he did not get one for Dubbak, Raghunandan Rao can ask the government for it rather than making wild allegations against the government,” he added. He pointed out that incentives to sportspersons were increased considerably when compared to previous governments and two per cent reservation was being extended to sportspersons in education and employment opportunities.
