Suryapet: TRS activists on Thursday conducted ‘ksheerabhisekham’ to the portraits of Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao and Minister for Power G Jagdish Reddy, expressing happiness over striking down of the petition filed by some persons in the High Court against the selection of a private place for construction of the Integrated Collectorate Complex of Suryapet district.

The Chief Mnister laid the foundation stone for the collectorate complex near Kudakuda village on October 12 in 2017. Chakilam Rajeshwar Rao from Suryapet filed a PIL in the High Court challenging the action of the district authorities in taking steps to construct the collectorate on private land instead of available government land at Suryapet.

Expressing happiness on the decision of the court striking down the petition, the TRS leaders held celebrations at the site of the Integrated Collectorate Complex near Kudakuda. They conducted Ksheerabhisekham to the portrait of Jagdish Reddy and raised slogans in support of the TRS government.

Speaking on the occasion, District Libraries president and TRS leader, Nimmala Srinivas, said that the decision of the court points to the fact that there was no scam or irregularity in the selection of the place for the Integrated Collectorate Complex as alleged by the opposition leaders. Some persons had mischievously filed a petition in court to tarnish the image of Jagdish Reddy.

The court’s decision was a good lesson for Congress leaders, he added. Stating that the people of the district also had welcomed the decision of the court, he felt that the same fate (rejection of petition by court) would be meted out to the Congress in the 2019 polls. He ticked off the Congress leaders for creating hurdles to the development programmes in the district. The expert committee also opined that the present site was most suitable for the constriction of the Integrated Collectorate Complex.
