“Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao was running the government on the path of development by overcoming multiple problems in the State”, Panchayat Raj Minister K Taraka Ramarao today said.
Launching a Water Grid pylon along with Roads & Buildings Minister Tummala Nageshwar Rao at Jeella village in Kusumanchi mandal of Khammam district here, KTR said the TRS Government was riding a cart of two bullocks, including welfare and development despite daunting problems and hurdles. He ridiculed AP Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu for obsessed with meaningless publicity and little work. “There is a lot of difference between Chandrababu Naidu and KCR. While Naidu usurped power by backstabbing his father-in-law and then Chief Minister N T Rama Rao, K.Chandrasekhar Rao was democratically elected by the people of Telangana”, KTR said, adding that the former was often coming in the way of Telangana projects.
KTR also slammed the Opposition parties for indulging in politics on dead bodies (suicides) of farmers. Telangana was mired in the dirt of 60 years of negligence and deprival which will take time, he said. Being aware of the farmers’ woes, the TRS Cabinet took a decision to provide Rs 6 lakh ex gratia to deceased farmer’s kin, a Rs 1 lakh more than what the Opposition parties demanded earlier.
KTR also ridiculed the Opposition parties for seeking Rs 10 lakh now, who had earlier asked for Rs 5 lakh. “We will also extend Rs 51,000 financial assistance to the girls of deceased farmers towards their marriages”, he said. During the previous Congress regime, then Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy, who frequently said the Telangana State would be doomed after bifurcation of united AP was in dark now, KTR said. He stated that the KCR government had succeeded in providing uninterrupted power supply to the people even in the summer. KCR was trying to offer better governance in the State.
Tummala Nageshwar Rao said they would not ask for votes in the next elections if the TRS government failed to give drinking waters to all in four years. The TRS Government has spent Rs 38,000 crore on welfare schemes and the credit goes to Chief Minister KCR only, he added. (NSS)
