Hanamkonda: Several BJP leaders including former sarpanch of Pangidipalli village, Sinde Chander Rao, quit BJP and joined TRS in the presence of Parkal MLA Challa Dharma Reddy on Friday.
Speaking on the occasion, Dharma Reddy urged the party workers to ensure the victory of TRS candidate Gellu Srinivas Yadav in the Huzurabad Assembly by-poll with a thumping majority for the development of the constituency. “We are fortunate to have K Chandrashekhar Rao as Chief Minister of our State since he knows the issues of the people and their pain,” the MLA said, adding that the BJP, which is in power at the Centre for the last seven years, had done nothing for the people.
“People must question the BJP leaders, who come for the election campaign, about what they had done to our State or Huzurababad constituency,” he said and added that welfare schemes being implemented in Telangana have remained the role models for the other States. “Particularly, the recently announced ‘Dalit Bandhu’ is a great scheme which is ideal for the countries across the globe for the uplift of the marginalised communities,” Dharma Reddy added. BJP leaders Mokide Rajeshwar Rao, Bejjenki Ramaswamy, MD Gousoddin, A Santhaji, P Ramesh and others joined the TRS. Party senior leader (TRS) Nagurla Venkateswara Rao was also present at the programme.
