Telangana will be safe only  in hands of KCR: Jagadish Reddy

Must read

Former Minister G Jagadish Reddy has felt that the farmers and people of Telangana will be safe only in the hands of former chief minister and Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) K Chandrashekar Rao. He exhorted the BRS rank and file to undertake a door-to-door campaign and explain to people how the Congress party betrayed the people by making false promises.
He was addressing the BRS activist’s preparatory meeting for the Lok Sabha elections. Lok Sabha candidate Krishna Reddy former MLA B Bikshamaiah Goud ex-MLA K Bhupal Reddy and others were present.
In the Devarakonda Assembly segment, the BRS leaders migrated to other parties but the people are sailing with the party.
Ever since the Congress regime came to power in Telangana, the Krishna River water management has been given to the Centre. When KCR objected to it at the Nalgonda public meeting, the Congress moved a resolution in the Assembly not to entrust the Krishna River water to the centre.
Moved by the spate of farmer suicides and noticing withered standing crops, KCR demanded a compensation of Rs 25,000 per acre to the affected farmers. He also sought the Cong regime to give Rs 500 as a bonus per quintal.
When KCR went to Karimnagar to inspect the damaged crops, the Congress government released water from Kaleshwaram. Though there is water for irrigation in the Nagarjunasagar project, the state government did not bother to release the same.
Jagadish Reddy attributed the “sorry state of affairs” in the agricultural sector in Telangana to the inefficiency of the government. He quoted the example of how KCR saved standing crops in three lakh acres when such a drought-like situation arose in Telangana in the past.  
KCR by foisting false cases, he asserted.
The Congress had the record of tapping the phones of the protagonists of the Telangana movement, he said, claiming that his phone was also tapped then. First, action should be taken against TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu before taking action against anyone in the phone tapping case. In fact, was there any complaint stating that their phones were under surveillance? he questioned.
District minister Komatireddy Venkat Reddy alleged in the past that A Revanth Reddy bought the TPCC president post by paying Rs 25 crore, but now he was praising the Chief Minister to save his post.
He accused the Congress government of mobilising Rs 100 crore from rice millers to pay to Congress bosses in Delhi. The interest of the farmers was thrown to the winds, he said, charging the government with not procuring paddy.
The state government promised an unemployment allowance of Rs 4,000 a month, but evading to fulfil the promise, he alleged. The Congress promised a Rs 5 lakh bank guarantee card to students under Yuva Vikasam, but failed to deliver on its promise, he said.
