Leaders from various political parties in the city are continuing to join the ruling party keeping in view the forthcoming GHMC elections.
On Monday, K M Prathap of Qutbullapur, K Srinivas Yadav, V N Reddy and their followers in large numbers joined the TRS at Telangana Bhavan in the presence of IT Minister K T Rama Rao, Talasani Srinivas Yadav, D Srinivas, M Hanmantha Rao and others. After offering the new leaders the pink shawls, KTR called upon the people to vote the TRS to power in the GHMC elections for better governance and welfare of the poor.
Taking a dig at the previous governments for ignoring the welfare and their failure in developing the city with better facilities, KTR said the 18-month-old TRS government has successfully addressed the issues pending for over 60 years. Inefficiency coupled with negligence and lack of plan of the successive governments, the city is mired in a set of problems, he alleged. KTR asked the citizens to pull up the Congress, TDP and BJP leaders when they come for seeking votes and question what development they have done during their rule. Neither the Congress nor the TDP cannot dare to tell the people what they have done for the people, he said and claimed that the TRS can inform them about various welfare schemes and two bedroom houses for the poor. The TRS Government was offering pensions to 38 lakh people besides implementing Kalyan Lakshmi and Shaadi Mubarak for marriage of poor girls and fine rice to hostels. Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao is known for keeping the promises he had made, he added.
D Srinivas asserted that the ruling party should win in the GHMC elections to develop the city and make it an international destination. Telangana was surpassing other States in welfare sector and the people have faith on the KCR government. He also appreciated double bedroom houses built in a superb manner at IDH Colony Bhoiguda with better facilities. He also said KCR gave priority to IT sector that fetching many such companies to the State giving hope of jobs to the youth.
Minister Srinivas Yadava said other political parties would not exist in Hyderabad as the TRS is set to win the GHMC elections. Believing in rapid growth and development, the people were queuing up to join the TRS, he claimed. (NSS)
