The Telangana Congress on Tuesday lashed out at caretaker Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao and his son and caretaker IT Minister K T Rama Rao, stating that they had no moral right to speak anything about the people who had laid down their lives during the struggle for a separate state.
Addressing a press conference at Gandhi Bhavan in Hyderabad on Tuesday, Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) Chief Spokesperson Sravan Dasoju said that provocative statements made by KCR led hundreds of young men and students to attempt to kill themselves during the statehood movement.
Dubbing the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) as 'Telangana Rowdies Samithi', Sravan said that all betrayers of the state have assembled under the banner of the party.
â€śTRS leaders like Srinivas Yadav, Tummala Nageshwara Rao and Mahender Reddy who had attacked statehood activists during the Telangana movement have been rewarded with posts of cabinet ministers. Several anti-Telangana leaders have been given tickets in the Assembly and Parliament. All 'rowdies' from Hyderabad and other parts of Telangana have gathered in the TRS,â€ť Sravan said.
Sravan also said that the TRS leaders had no moral right to speak about the possible alliance between the Congress and TDP.
Pointing out that the TRS was also in an alliance with the TDP in 2009, Sravan said, â€śIt is strange that when TRS enters into an alliance with TDP, it is called 'moral' tie-up and when Congress and TDP join hands, it is described as 'immoral' and 'unholy'. Sensing that the TRS boat is about to sink, its leaders have started criticising the proposed alliance so as to mislead the people.â€ť
â€śThe TRS Government has not fulfilled a single major electoral promise. The KCR government could not even construct a memorial for Telangana's martyrs during the last four-and-a-half years by spending just Rs 50 crore. However, KCR constructed a palatial bungalow for himself at a cost of Rs 500 crore,â€ť Sravan alleged.
The TPCC Chief Spokesperson also said, â€śInstead of being accountable for his failures, KCR has dissolved the Assembly nine months of ahead of schedule. People had given TRS a mandate for 60 months. However, by advancing elections, KCR has betrayed all the citizens who voted for TRS in 2014.â€ť
Calling KCR a 'political sadist', Sravan alleged that the TRS chief was a highly opportunistic politician and had entered into a secret deal with the BJP to advance the Assembly elections. He said KCR had taken permission from Prime Minister Narender Modi before making a move on the dissolution of the Assembly.
