Congress-led alliance will do injustice to state says TRS

The TRS on Tuesday attacked the "grand alliance" of opposition Congress, TDP and others for the assembly polls, claiming injustice would be meted out to Telangana in the irrigation sector if it came to power as TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu is allegedly opposed to such projects.

Naidu, in his capacity as Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister, has written 30 letters to the Centre opposing the Palamuru lift irrigation project, which would serve Mahabubnagar and Ranga Reddy districts of Telangana, TRS

leader and minister in the caretaker government KT Rama Rao said.

"When you go door-to-door from tomorrow (for campaign), tell the farmers that, by mistake, if Congress and TDP comes to power, the controlling power of that grand alliance would be in the hands of Chandrababu Naidu and if the controlling power is in the hands of Chandrababu Naidu... it will be injustice to Telangana once again," he said.

Rama Rao, son of TRS president and caretaker Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, was addressing a party meeting at Ibrahimpatnam near Hyderabad in connection with the upcoming Assembly elections in the state.

He also alleged that it is not known who would be the chief minister if the "grand alliance" comes to power as there are many aspirants to the post in the Congress itself.

Taking potshots at the Congress, he claimed that it would be like a game of "musical chairs" with regard to the
CM's post if the "grand alliance" is elected to power.

The names of the chief minister and ministers would be decided in Delhi and the name of the CM would be sent in a "sealed cover", he said.

"So, we have to tell people. In this state which was achieved with hard work for the sake of self-respect, should we have a sealed cover chief minister or KCR who is like a lion as chief minister," Rao said.

Later addressing a party meeting at Ghanpur near Warangal, Rama Rao alleged Congress leaders also tried to stall irrigation projects by filing petitions in courts.

Though there is nothing wrong in going to a court seeking justice, Congress filed false cases in courts to stall irrigation projects, he claimed, addressing a party meeting at Ghanpur near Warangal.

Congress did not bother to take care of the irrigation needs of farmers in Telangana when it was in power for long,
he alleged. Though there was nothing wrong in going to court seeking justice, Congress filed false cases in courts to stall irrigation projects, he claimed.

he alleged.

Referring to the claim of Congress that there were over 60 lakh discrepancies in the voters list, he said the party was seeking to find excuses for its "impending defeat" in the polls.

He highlighted the TRS government's schemes like 24x7 free supply to farmers, 'Rythu Bandhu' investment support scheme for farmers and making tribal habitations gram panchayats and efforts to set up a pollution-free 'pharma city'.

The TRS is going it alone in the Assembly polls.

Telangana goes to polls on December 7 and the counting of votes will be done on December 11.
