Outburst of fury over TRS: AICC general secretary Digvijay Singh, TPPC president Uttam Kumar Reddy and Renuka Chowdary at Kusumanchi in Khammam on Thursday.G.N. Rao
Telangana Congress Committee President N. Uttam Kumar Reddy has castigated the TRS Government accusing it of doling out Rs. 20,000 crore to the contractors for the Water Grid (Mission Bhageeratha) Scheme and various irrigation projects for the current fiscal, leaving the distressed farmers, students, weaker sections in awful straits.
The TRS regime has earned notoriety for extravagance, nepotism, corruption and misrule over the last two and a half years of its rule, he charged, accusing the State Government of showing “callous indifference” towards the plight of bereaved families of the farmers who ended their lives in distress. As he was speaking at a well-attended meeting held as part of “Jana Avedana Sammelan” in Kusumanchi on Thursday night.
AICC General Secretary Digvijay Singh, TPCC working President, Rajya Sabha member Renuka Chowdary Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka, MLC P. Sudhakar Reddy and a host of other senior party leaders were attended the meeting.
Trying to drive political mileage by portraying the Bhakta Ramadasu lift irrigation project as its major achievement that they have made, he flayed, stating that the NSP and SRSP canals based on which the project was operationalized were constructed by the Congress government in the past.
Congress sure to win
The Congress will surely win the next general elections with an enormous majority and take the reins of the State to end the miseries of farmers and other toiling masses, Mr. Reddy emphasized.
Earlier, disorder prevailed at the beginning of the meeting when some Congress leaders has expressed an objection to the presence of a leader from Kothagudem on the dais branding him as a “political opportunist.”
A heated argument ensued between Ms. Renuka and Mr. Sudhakar Reddy over the issue in the presence of Mr. Digvijay Singh.
