KCR did not visit UoH to please BJP Govt: Bhatti

TPCC Working President Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka on Wednesday alleged that Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao did not visit the University of Hyderabad to meet family members of Rohit Vemula, the Dalit research scholar who committed suicide, only to please the BJP Government at the Centre.

Speaking at Meet The Press programme organised by Hyderabad Union of Working Journalist here, Bhatti said Rohit’s suicide has shocked the entire nation and several national leaders visited Hyderabad from different parts of the country. However, KCR did not even meet Rohit’s family members nor visited the UoH. This act clearly shows that KCR wanted to please the BJP-led Central Government, he alleged.

Bhatti also ridiculed TRS stand on Seemandhra people living in Hyderabad. He said that the TRS leaders used offensive and intimidating language against the settlers in the past. However, in view of GHMC elections, they changed their stand and are now claiming that everyone living in Hyderabad was a Hyderabadi. He said Panchayat Raj Minister K. Tarakarama Rao has been claiming to win 100 seats as the TRS has gained expertise in the art of buying out opposition candidates.

Bhatti said that the TRS Government did nothing for the development of Hyderabad during the last 18 months while the previous Congress regimes have developed the city by spending thousands of crores. (INN)
