Hyderabad/New Delhi, Feb.2 (Hydnow): TPCC president A. Revanth Reddy today condemned Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao’s remarks proposing a new Constitution for the country.
Addressing the media in New Delhi on Wednesday, Revanth Reddy said Chief Minister KCR’s views on changing the Constitution of India were BJP’s. He said BJP has been conspiring to change the Constitution drafted by Dr B.R. Ambedkar, and this time, BJP made KCR to speak about it.
He said the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Backward Classes have been enjoying the reservation and other benefits only because of the present Constitution.
He said the BJP wanted to change the Constitution to deprive SCs, STs, BCs and others of reaping the benefits of reservation and other sops.
Revanth Reddy said the Congress cadre has been directed to burn KCR’s effigies across Telangana State near the statues of Dr Ambedkar.
He said a 48-hour agitation would also be launched on Thursday demanding that KCR withdraw his remarks while tendering an unconditional apology.
The TPCC Chief said the Constitution of India is considered the best and ideal for the entire world. He said some provisions of the Constitution could be amended and so far, it has been done 105 times.
But by proposing a change in the Constitution, KCR has displayed his disrespect and hatred towards Dr Ambedkar and also the SC, ST, BC and other weaker communities.
Revanth Reddy said KCR addressed a press conference for two hours and 34 hours to react on the budget speech of Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, which lasted for only 90-minutes. He said there was nothing new in KCR’s presser. He did not raise any new demand.
A police head constable was arrested on the charges of misbehaving with a woman at district headquarters hospitals, here on Thursday.
A Delhi court on Thursday extended judicial custody of former Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, arrested in the excise policy case being probed by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), by 19 days.
The Home Ministry on Thursday decided to give VIP security to Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge, thereby granting him Z Plus security.
The last date for payment of fee and submission of online applications fro admissions to Class VI and vacant seats in Classes VII to X in the Telangana State Model Schools has been extended upto March 2.
The Congress government headed by Chief Minister Revanth Reddy is ready to implement two more guarantees which were part of the six guarantees given during the Assembly election period in the coming five days.
