TRS foundation day on Saturday: Talasani

Hyderabad: Animal Husbandry Minister T Srinivas Yadav today criticised the Congress leaders for their accusations against the government on defections. The minister said that the TRS foundation day will be held on April 27.

TRS working president and former minister KT Rama Roo will unfurl the party flag to mark the occasion at Telangana Bhavan, he said. Talking to press persons at Telagnana Bhavan he flayed that the congress led by Ali Baba and 40 for complaining to Governor ESL Narasimhan on defections. Did the congress not encourage defections earlier, he asked. He ridiculed the congress leaders for talking in a foolish manner on the government.

Srinivas further alleged that the opposition is losing its base and there is no truth in what they allege that the TRS is buying the leaders to defect. It is the habit and the tradition of the Congress to buy the leaders and not the TRS leadership, he claimed. The minister criticised the congress leaders for failing to honour democracy. The leaders joining the ruling party on their own for developing their segments. The schemes of welfare and development in the state are being followed by several other states and the Centre too, he claimed.

The people are happy at successful wet run of prestigious Kaleshwaram project. However the congress leaders sitting in Gandhi Bhavan making false charges on the government, he said. The people have rejected the congress and its leadership should not forget that, he suggested. The TRS leadership will not keep quiet on the alleged charges by the congress, he warned.
