TRS outbursts on Congress team in wake of parkal bypoll

With the aim of targeting the Congress’ Parkal bypoll campaign, the TRS senior leader Mr T. Harish Rao has released a list of allegations against the state and its unfulfilled promises on Saturday.

The list has been released a day before the arrival of high-profile visitors inclu-ding AICC emissary Mr Vayalar Ravi, Chief Minis-ter Mr N. Kiran Kumar Reddy and PCC chief Mr Botsa Satyanarayana, who are likely to attend the party’s meeting with booth-level workers in Atmakur mandal on Sunday.

Incidentally, TRS chief Mr K. Chandrasekhar Rao is also slated to attend a meeting with key party workers from all four mandals of Parkal constituency in Atmakur on Sunday.

While the Congress ministers including Mr Baswaraju Saraiah, Mr Ponnala Lakshamaiah and government chief whip Mr Gandra Venkata Ramana Reddy briefed the media about the expected arrival of key Congress leaders on Sunday, the release of the list by TRS’ senior leader T Harish Rao is likely to put the visiting Congressmen on the defensive.

Titled ‘Does the CM has right to visit Warangal

’, sources said the list of unfulfilled promises and allegations against the sta-te government is a strategic move of the TRS to wean away voters from Congress camp as the visiting leaders would be in a fix whether to answer them or ignore them during their public meeting on Sunday. Sources said this is the first attack from the TRS’ camp in the series of attacks that they have planned against rival parties like Congress, YSR Congress and the Telugu Desam in the run up to the Parkal poll.

Interestingly, the list of unfulfilled promises and allegations against the state government include attempt to shift the proposed tribal university from tribal dominated Warangal and Khammam in Telangana to Visakhapatnam, attempt to set up a mining university in Andhra instead of Singareni coal mines area in Telangana.

Other allegations, which were listed in point wise, alleges that Chief Minister Mr N. Kiran Kumar Reddy ‘took away a Sainik school to Chittor from Warangal’ and ‘intentional delay by the government in getting land allotted for the sanctioned wagon unit in Warangal’.

Mr Harish Rao also questioned whether it was not discriminatory on the part of the state to solely spend money for ‘developing airports in Vishakapatnam, Kadapa and Tirupati while ignoring Nizam era airstrips located in Telan-gana region at Mamnoor (Warangal), Kagaznagar (Adilabad) and Begumpet (Hyderabad)’.

The TRS also faulted the state for not keeping up its promise to set up a textile park for the benefit of Padmashali community following the disinvestment and closure of Nizam era Azam Zahi mills in Warangal.

They also alleged that the state plans to increase the recent 50 MBBS seat allotments by the Medical Council of India (MCI) only in state run medical colleges based in Nellore, Kakinada and Tirupati while ignoring the same at Kakatiya Medical College (KMC) in Warangal. Other allegations levelled against the state dealt with subje-cts like national highways, Jalayagnam scheme etc.
