Telangana Congress yet to reach consensus on candidates

NEW DELHI: Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) president A Revanth Reddy has alleged that the BRS and the BJP are two sides of the same coin which vowed to work together in the coming Parliamentary elections.

BRS MLC Kasireddy Narayana Reddy joined the Congress and was welcomed by All India Congress Committee (AICC) president Mallikarjun Kharge in New Delhi on Friday. Revanth Reddy criticised the BJP for shielding the irregularities of the BRS as both the political parties were in a bond with each other. He averred that the steering wheel of the BJP was with Adani and, while the BRS steering wheel was with AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi.

"Vamsi Chand Reddy welcomed Narayana Reddy to the seat he is contesting. I appreciate his decision.Other leaders in Telangana should draw inspiration from Vamsichand Reddy and strive hard for the party," Revanth Reddy said and lauded his efforts. Despite not being in power, the BRS leaders Mynampally Hanumanth Rao, Rekha Naik and Kasireddy Narayana Reddy joined the Congress and people would decide the fate of the BRS in the next 45 days, he said.

Taking a jibe at Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao (KCR), Revanth Reddy said, “KCR has turned to be a Charles Sobhraj, his son and nephew- KT Rama Rao (KTR) and T Harish Rao-turned out to be Billa, Ranga in looting the State.” He also recalled that the Congress gave a ministry to Harish Rao even though he was not elected as an MLA. KTR and Harish Rao should question KCR what the Congress had done for the people of Telangana, he said.

Revanth Reddy said be it Aarogyasri, loan waiver for farmers or fee reimbursement for students, all these schemes were introduced and implemented by the Congress. Former Chief Minister YS Rajasekhar Reddy even implemented free power supply for the farmers in erstwhile Andhra Pradesh. “Why is development confined to Siddipet, Siricilla and Gajwel during the BRS rule in Telangana? What about the developments in other parts of the State and why is the BRS showing discrimination? In what capacity, the BRS is questioning the Congress which is implementing unique schemes in Chhattisgarh and Himachal Pradesh,” the TPCC chief said.

Revanth Reddy said that the BRS priorities were votes and seats, while the Congress bothers about the welfare of the people and announced the six guarantees would be implemented if voted to power in Telangana. “The BJP does not have candidates and a manifesto. The Congress has not been in power since the inception of Telangana. It is the BRS which secured power twice,” he said, and dared the BRS to debate on the welfare done by the Congress in erstwhile Andhra Pradesh and development done in Telangana by the KCR Government for a decade.

The TPCC president said that Telangana, which was formed with a Rs 16,000 crore surplus budget, incurred lakhs of crores of debt due to KCR’s greed. “The BRS is gearing up to hoodwink the people of Telangana with false promises. People are not in a position to believe the words of KCR once again and are yearning for change and looking towards the Congress,” Revanth Reddy said, and added that pre-poll surveys done by the national agencies predicted the victory of the Congress in the coming elections.
