Siddipet: Finance Minister T Harish Rao has said Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) candidate from Nalgonda-Warangal and Khammam Graduate Constituency of Telangana Legislative Council, had gone to jail during the Telangana movement.
“When student Venugopal Reddy committed suicide on Osmania University Campus, Rajeshwar Reddy was among the first to reach the place and participate in protests leading to his arrest and being sent to jail,” he said adding that such an able person will do justice to people.
Addressing the election campaign in Cheriyal town on Monday, the Minister said Rajeshwar Reddy was highly and had an experience of working closely with the Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao and all the cabinet ministers during the past six years.
Harish Rao said the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Congress which fielded candidates had done nothing for the cause of Telangana State. He said while the country was lagging behind in development during the BJP’s rule, but Telangana recorded 14.2 per cent growth rate. He accused the BJP government of making the life difficult for common man by increasing the prices of petrol, gas and others.
Elaborating various development and welfare schemes initiated by the TRS government, Rao has said that no BJP ruled government was giving such benefits across India.
The Minister has shared his experiences of a chit-chat with the farmers of Karnataka State while he was travelling between Karnataka-Telangana border. Government Chief Whip Bodakunti Venkateshwarlu, MLC Janagon Muthireddy Yadagiri Reddy and others were present. The Minister has appealed to the graduates to elect Palla Rajeshwar Reddy with a huge majority.
