Hyderabad, Sept.12 (Hydnow): State BJP president Bandi Sanjay Kumar on Monday lashed out at Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao for making false accusations against the Centre stating that it had introduced the electricity bill making it mandatory for the States to install electricity meters to the agriculture pump sets.
Addressing a massive rally at Ramlila grounds at Qutbullapur on the city outskirts before embarking on his fourth-phase of Praja Sangrama Yatra, Sanjay said KCR had completely misled the State Assembly by showing some outdated papers.
Displaying the proposed Electricity (Amendment) Bill, the BJP State president said: “Here is the bill. Let KCR show whether there is any provision on installation of meters to the agriculture pump sets. He should resign from the Chief Minister’s post and apologise to the people. If I am wrong, I will quit my MP seat,” he added.
Stating that he was ready to prove KCR wrong, Sanjay alleged that the Telangana government was trying to impose a burden of another Rs 4,000 crore by increasing power tariff in the name of installing meters to farm pump sets and throw the blame on the Centre. “If the meters are installed, we shall break the walls of Pragati Bhavan,” he warned.
On the allegation made by the Chief Minister that the Centre was bringing pressure on the Telangana government to sell the assets of Road Transport Corporation (RTC), Sanjay said it was KCR, who was conspiring to lease out the assets of the TSRTC, including depots and lands to his family members and stooges for 99 years. “We shall not allow privatisation of RTC assets at any cost,” he said.
Ridiculing the TRS chief projecting himself as a national leader, the BJP leader said in a sarcastic tone: “Desh Ki Neta, Din Bhar Peetha, Farmhouse me sotha, Amas-Punnami ko baahar aatha..” (This national leader keeps consuming liquor all through the day, sleeps in the farm house and comes out once in blue moon).
The Chief Minister has converted Pragathi Bhavan into a virtual KCR Bar and Restaurant, he alleged. “He had also announced payment of Rs 1,000 for pointing out every pothole. If he wants to pay the money, his entire State budget will not be sufficient. There are so many potholes on the roads all over the city,” he said.
He also alleged that there was no proper drainage system in Hyderabad, while the TRS leaders were encroaching nalas and tanks. “KCR has even promised to make Musi river water as pure as coconut water. Can he drink the same or at least with take a bath with it?” he asked. (Hydnow)
