Warangal Urban: Launching a broadside against the BJP, TRS leaders including Minister Errabelli Dayakar Rao and Government Chief Whip Dasyam Vinay Bhaskar here on Saturday condemned the remarks made by BJP State president and Karimnagar MP Bandi Sanjay Kumar for his alleged ‘false propaganda’ on the development of Warangal city. They stated that the BJP, which is in power at the Centre, failed to develop the erstwhile Warangal district in general and Warangal city in particular.
Addressing a press meet here, Minister Dayakar Rao asked Sanjay why he was not impressing upon the BJP government to sanction the railway coach factory at Kazipet as promised by the Centre in the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act 2014. “The Centre has failed to set up the tribal university and steel factory in the erstwhile Warangal district though the land was allotted to varsity. But Sanjay is trying to mislead the people of Warangal with his false propaganda in an attempt to gain political mileage in the GWMC election. However, the people of Warangal will not fall prey to this smear campaign and instead, will teach a befitting lesson in the elections as the people of Telangana had already slapped on the face of BJP by ensuring the defeat of the BJP candidates in the recent graduates MLC election,” he added.
Stating that BJP MPs Sanjay and Dharmapuri Arvind failed to fulfill their electoral promises, Rao sought to know why Sanjay was unable to get a medical college for his Karimnagar Parliamentary constituency and why Arvind failed to ensure sanctioning of the turmeric board in Nizamabad Lok Sabha constituency. He said the TRS government under the leadership of K Chandrashekhar Rao had sanctioned hundreds of crores of rupees for the development of Warangal since TRS came to power. “People stood by the TRS in the past and I am confident that they will also support the party in the GWMC election too,” Rao said. “Sanjay, you must know that the people of Warangal are not ready to believe your words. Our Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao and IT Minister KT Rama Rao are constantly working to change the face of Warangal,” he added.
Government Chief Whip Vinay Bhaskar said that the people would be hoodwinked by the BJP leaders’ statements. “You (Sanjay) can’t mislead the people with your babble. The people know which is good and which is not for the development of Warangal,” he added.
Telangana State Planning Commission Vice-Chairman Boinpally Vinod Kumar, MP Banda Prakash, MLCs Kadiam Srihari, Baswaraj Saraiah, TSIIC chairman and combined Warangal district party in-charge Gyadari Balamallu, MLA T Rajaiah, Hyderabad former Mayor Bonthu Rammohan, and others were present at the press meet.
