Set right your homes first, Harish tells Congress, TDP

Failing to set right its own home the Congress party was resorting to mudslinging on the TRS party on the defections, said Irrigation Minister T Harish Rao.

Participating in a program in Medak district on Thursday, Harish Rao condemned the comments of AICC leader Digvijay Singh against the ruling party in Telangana. “The Congress leaders are afraid of losing their existence in Telangana and indulging in meaningless attack on the ruling party. Many leaders from other parties were joining the TRS for the sake of development of the State with an aim to transform it into a golden Telangana”, he said. “Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao was giving top priority to welfare schemes and development activities”, he claimed.

Harish Rao slammed the Opposition parties for trying to stall development in the State. But the people were not ready to accept the Congress party’s vicious campaigning against the Chief Minister and his cabinet colleagues, he charged. He also flayed the Congress party for trying to get political mileage with other go. He sought to know whether defections had not taken place during chief minister late YS Rajasekhar Reddy, who poached some TRS legislators.

At Mission Kakatiya program in Karimnagar, Harish Rao accused the previous government of ignoring the development of Rajarajeshwara Swamy temple in Vemulawada and the TRS dispensation is spending adequate funds for the purpose. The TRS Government will develop Gandi Cheruvu in the area by spending Rs 62 crore to bring under ayacut one lakh acres through Yellampally project and KCR will launch it soon.

Harish Rao also slammed Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu for hatching a conspiracy against Telangana projects. The TDP Government was adopting double standards on irrigation projects and writing letters to the Centre and filing cases in the Supreme Court to stall them, he said.  Despite the obstacles, the TRS Government would complete the projects with required design change to irrigate one crore acres, he added.
