Hyderabad: Telangana Rashtra Samithi chief and Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao lambasted Telugu Desam Party chief N Chandrababu Naidu at a press meet here on Saturday. He spoke at length on many issues ranging from local politics to national politics and about his recent meetings with other leaders.
KCR said, Andhra Pradesh is being sanctioned Rs 24,000 crore by the Union government and they are receiving the amount in parts. The Union government has also given funds to construct a Court but Chandrababu has swindled them. Talking about the BJP he said they could not get back deposits in 103 constituencies out of 118 they contested in the recently held Telangana Assembly elections.
Later KCR called Chandrababu as the dirtiest politician in the country. He added, Chandrababu lacks clarity over the issue of Special Category Status. He was the one who rejected it earlier and he now claims to fight for it. Chandrababu even alleged that TRS is against SCS to AP which is false. KCR pointed out that TRS MPs Kavitha and K Keshava Rao supported SCS to AP in the House. Chandrababu has grabbed the Telugu Desam party from his father in law and is now struggling to run it, KCR said. He remarked that Chandrababu is a manager, not a leader.
Telangana government is spending Rs 250 crores for the Assembly, Secretariat, and another buildings but Chandrababu is spending money extravagantly over the buildings and giving huge amounts of land to such buildings. Assembly of AP is going to be built on an area of 12 lakh square feet, while the whole of AP secretariat in the Hyderabad, which served the erstwhile combined stands on 10 lakh square feet.
Taking pot shots at Chandrababu, who boasts that he built Hi-Tech city. KCR said, all the corporate companies have a back up mechanism and disaster mechanism, wherein they were looking for a location which is least disturbed by the climate changes. Topography-wise Hyderabad is very safe as in terms of being relatively safe from earthquakes, for instance. Hyderabad is also far from the ocean and is safer when compared with coastal cities, KCR observed. The Telangana CM said It was under Rajiv Gandhi’s reign that the plan to build a place for Information Technology first came up. N Janardhan Reddy the then Chief Minister of state laid the foundation stone for the Cyber Towers. KCR questioned, “I visited Visakhapatnam to offer my prayers at the Sharada temple, I was greeted by many people from the city all the while I was there. If I visit AP why is Chandrababu scared .”
Referring to public opinion in AP KCR added, everywhere in the state people are seething with against Chandrababu. He is set to lose the election in AP. It was Chandrababu, who made Nandamuri Suhasini contest from Kukatpally. It was the AP chief minister who played politics over the dead body of Harikrishna.
Talking about the Federal front he said it was his responsibility, it takes time to convince people, he added. He later spoke about the Rythu bandhu, a flagship program for farmers, which is now being followed by many states and Rythu Bhima is also another program we are focusing on.
All the farm-related activities are going to be under one Ministry now the cooperatives would be under one ministry, he added. 20 lakh crore funds are lying idle with Union government, which they could not use.
Commenting on TPCC chief Uttam Kumar Reddy, KCR said, Uttam talks all rubbish, Congress has won in three states and lost in the state of Telangana. KCR said, Congress is making false claims over the BC reservations in the panchayat elections. TRS is the first government to implement BC reservation in the market committees.
Till now 74 lakh sheep have been distributed by the government to the BCs. TRS government is giving Rs. 20 lakh scholarship to the BC students.
