AP is growing due to Telangana formation: KTR

Panchayat Raj Minister K. Tarakarama Rao on Thursday claimed that the neighbouring Andhra Pradesh State was witnessing development only due to formation of Telangana State.

Addressing TRS workers in Uppal Assembly constituency, KTR said several new projects were sanctioned for Andhra Pradesh only due to formation of Telangana State. They include international airport at Gannavaram and national institutions including IIT and IIM. He said bifurcation of united AP was the major reason for the development of residuary State of Andhra Pradesh.

KTR said that the TRS Government did not instill fear among the people of other States living in Hyderabad. He said that the State Government was treating all sections of the society equally. He accused the BJP Government at the Centre of neglecting Telangana in release of development funds.

Meanwhile, reacting to the High Court order on GHMC elections, KTR accused the Congress party of trying to stall the elections fearing defeat. However, he said that the people of Greater Hyderabad would vote in favour of TRS due to its contribution in city’s development. (INN)
