Expressing surprise over the allegations made by former Union Minister S Jaipal Reddy against Telangana movement and Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, Government Chief Whip Koppula Eshwar and Council Whip Bodakunti Venkateshwarlu today deplored that Jaipal Reddy was speaking like a street leader unmindful of his political stature.
Speaking to mediapersons here on Tuesday, Eshwar and Venkateshwarlu dubbed the ongoing Congress party’s “Jana Avedana Sammelans” as unemployed Congress leaders’ Avedana meetings. They said the Congress leaders were raising irrelevant issues as they have nothing to talk about welfare and development programs in the State. “We are leaving Jaipal Reddy’s remarks to his wisdom”, they said. They also asked Jaipal Reddy whether he ever discussed with AICC Chief Sonia Gandhi on Telangana issue and wondered as to why he was speaking about Telangana movement now even as the separate State came into being 33 months ago.
They said while the entire nation was praising Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao for his thought provoking unique programs for welfare of people and development of the infant State, the panic-stricken Congress leaders were talking rubbish fearing they would not even save their deposits in the ensuing 2019 elections. They also advised former minister D K Aruna not to indulge in loose talk in frustration.
Stating that the process of filling vacant posts in the State was in brisk pace, Koppula and Bodakunti charged Telangana JAC leaders with spreading misinformation at the behest of Congress leaders, they asserted that the State government has already filled 28,000 posts. They also deplored that TJAC chairman Prof M Kodandaram was speaking ill of the State government by joining hands with the power-hungry Congress and TDP leaders. (NSS)
