Lokesh a novice, TD didn’t learn a lesson: Srihari

Deputy Chief Minister Kadiam Srihari today lashed out at Telugu Desam party leaders for making cheap comments against the TRS Government for gain in the forthcoming civic polls.

Addressing the media here on Wednesday, the Dy CM described the TD’s young leader Nara Lokesh as a political novice. “The TD did not learn a lesson from its defeats in the previous bypolls. We will win the Narayankhed bypoll with handsome majority”, he said. Exuding confidence of winning over 100 divisions in the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation elections, Kadiam said the TRS will wrest Mayoral post as per the surveys and pulse of the people.

Lokesh and other leaders of the TDP and its ally BJP were resorting to mud-slinging at the TRS for political mileage and there will be no use, he averred. He also fumed at the Opposition for its cheap criticism and sad the people in the GHMC limits were not ready to listen to them, he said.

Lambasting the TD leaders for making derogatory remarks against Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao and IT Minister KT Rama Rao, Srihari said the TDP has failed to learn anything despite its failures at the polls. Brushing aside the TD’s claim of developing Hyderabad city, which has many problems like drainage, traffic and others, Srihari said the TRS will show its prowess to transform Hyderabad into a global city on winning the majority seats in the civic polls. He asserted that the Opposition parties were making a vain bid in the civic polls as the people believe in the welfare and development programs being implemented by the government, he said. He also said they will keep the promise of providing shelter to the poor in the twin cities. “Our plan is to construct three lakh houses for the poor in the city, he added. (NSS)
