The Congress has challenged the TRS government, especially Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao, for an open debate on its performance during the 17 months in Telangana State.
TPCC president N. Uttam Kumar Reddy released a booklet “50 Questions on 500 days of TRS Misrule” compiled by Leader of Opposition in the Council Mohammed Ali Shabbir at Gandhi Bhavan here on Thursday.
Speaking to mediapersons later, Uttam Kumar Reddy alleged that the TRS Government has been making false claims on its performance. Beginning with a U-turn on the promise of making a Dalitas Chief Minister, KCR first cheated the families of Telangana martyrs by restricting their numbers to 481. Similarly, the cases related to Telangana agitation have not been withdrawn and hundreds of students were still facing trial in the courts. He also said KCR sacked a Dalit Deputy CM Dr T. Rajaiah on the charges of indulging in corrupt activities. However, KCR himself did not follow the suit despite being questioned by the CBI in the alleged ESI Hospitals’ scam.
Shabbir Ali ridiculed KCR’s claim wherein he stated that almost 99% of the promises he made have been fulfilled. He said not even 9% of the promises were fulfilled by the TRS Government. He said the Congress was ready for an open debate on the issue before the media and the public in the TRS Bhavan.
MLCs Ponguleti Sudhakar Reddy and Akula Lalitha were also present. (NSS)
