Hyderabad, Aug.5 (Hydnow): State BJP president Bandi Sanjay Kumar on Friday lashed out at Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao of backtracking on his promise of cleansing Musi river at a cost of Rs 4,000 crore and making Hussainsagar water as clean as coconut water.
Sanjay was interacting with the villagers of Pedda Ravulapalli village of Bhongir constituency, which is affected by the Musi river pollution, as part of the Rachabanda program on the fourth day of his Praja Sangrama Yatra. The villagers explained their woes due to pollution of Musi river, which they said, had contaminated even their food. The crops were getting damaged and the people were suffering from health issues, they lamented.
Expressing anguish over their grievances, Sanjay wondered why KCR was unmoved by the plight of the villagers, who were facing loss of crops and suffering from health problems. He reminded that during the previous NDA regime, then Union home minister L K Advani had released Rs 344 crore for the cleansing of Musi river.
“After KCR came to power, he announced that he would constitute Musi River Front Corporation and allot Rs 4,000 crore for the same. He said he would also beautify the river front on the lines of Sabarmati river.
But he has not taken any steps in that direction. While he spent Rs 1.30 lakh crore on constructing Kaleshwaram only to bring water to his farmhouse, he did not spend even a single rupee on cleansing the Musi river,” he said.
He charged the KCR government with diverting the Central funds and not implementing the Central schemes – whether it was free distribution of rice or employment guarantee scheme.
Though the Central government released funds for Musi river cleansing, the State government has remained a mute spectator when industrial effluents were being let out into the river, damaging the crops and health of the people, he alleged. (Hydnow)
