Hyderabad:  Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao on Friday tore into the Opposition for resorting to false propaganda and pitied their failure in identifying real issues in Telangana State.

The Chief Minister termed the victory of the Telangana Boggu Gani Karmika Sangham (TBGKS), affiliated to the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS), in the election for recognised union in Singareni Collieries Company Limited (SCCL) as unprecedented, reflecting the fate of combined might of the Opposition parties in the 2019 elections.

Chandrashekhar Rao, addressing the media at Pragathi Bhavan after the record-breaking win in the SCCL elections, spoke on a variety of subjects. He ripped apart the Opposition parties for resorting to obstructive politics with malicious intentions. He suggested that they act responsibly and attempt adopting constructive politics.

The Chief Minister said the Opposition parties do not have the wisdom of economy, creativity or patience. “They do not learn from their mistakes or about world-wide phenomena. They have been part of governments and do not understand the basic fact that one cannot avoid loans for development of the State and these loans can’t be obtained without approval of the Central government. I pity them for their failure in identifying real issues plaguing the people and strive to resolve them,” he lambasted.

Chandrashekhar Rao stated that the victory was a clear indication of the confidence SCCL employees and workers had on the TRS government. “As Chief Minister, I assure to implement all the promises and assurances made for workers’ betterment,” he said. He ridiculed the Opposition claims that the TRS was losing its hold on the State electorate and observed that whenever such claims were made, TRS kept winning all elections in the past three years and strengthened itself. “Wherever TRS contested, the outcome has only been record-breaking, be it by-polls, GHMC and the SCCL union election,” he recalled.

The Chief Minister pointed out that never had any union garnered 45.4 per cent vote share. Besides increasing its vote percentage from 36 per cent to 45.4 per cent, TBGKS also bettered its position in SCCL by winning in nine of 11 divisions against only five divisions during previous elections.
