Strongly condemning the ‘encounter’ in Tekulapalli in which eight naxalites were gunned down by police, CPI lashed out at Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao for going back on his words. 

CPI senior leader Puvvada Nageswara Rao said, “Before coming to power, KCR announced that Maoist agenda was their agenda and there would be no encounters in the separate state. If that is true, what explanation is he going to give to the encounter which took place at Tekulappali recently,” reported The Hans India.

Further, he alleged that instead of transforming the state into Bangaru Telangana (Golden Telangana), KCR was driving the state into debts. 

He was speaking at the district level party meeting held in Yellandhu of Khammam district on Sunday.

He also criticised the welfare schemes of the government like providing sheep, as mere tokenism. 

“The Chief Minister is trying to suppress the voice of the opposition for questioning the government for its anti-people policies,” he said.

Accusing the chief minister and his family of appropriating the statehood movement, he said that the state was achieved after several movements and sacrifices. However, the CM and his family members are claiming that the state was achieved because of them and acting like they have adopted the state, Rao said.

Rao also took the opportunity to criticise the BJP-led Centre for encouraging communalism in the country. 

He said that the Modi-led government had dealt a blow to the economy with Goods and Services Tax and demonetisation.

As many as eight Naxalites belonging to CPI (CP-Bata) were gunned down by the police in Tekulapalli forests, Bhadradri Kothagudem district on Thursday during combing operations by the special police.

Police identified four gunned down Naxalites as Vetti Kumar alias Rakhi (area committee secretary of Manuguru-Kothagudem), Esam Naresh alias Sudarsan (area commander), Azad and Madhu.

Civil rights activists have also condemned the government’s action.
