Addressing the party workers and leaders here on Wednesday, Uttam Kumar Reddy said Amit Shah has failed to draw any response from the common people and he remained confined to a few programmes orchestrated by the local BJP leaders.
Ridiculing Amit Shah’s statements made during the visit, he said that the BJP leader owes an explanation to the people of Telangana on why the BJP Government at the Centre has completely neglected the State. “Not a single promise made in the Telangana Bill has been fulfilled by the BJP Government at the Centre.
The Railway Coach Factory in Qazipet, Steel Factory in Byyaram of Khammam, Tribal University, Information Technology Investment Region (ITIR) and other major schemes remained unfulfilled. The Centre could not even bifurcate the High Court during the last three years,” he said.
Uttam Kumar Reddy said that the BJP Government did not accord National Project status to any irrigation project in Telangana. Further, he said other promises made by the BJP during elections like depositing Rs. 15 lakh in every bank account remained unfilled.
“Centre, along with TRS Govt, has completely neglected the agriculture sector. It remained a mute spectator to thousands of farmers’ suicides in the State and no assistance, whatsoever, was extended to the crisis-hit agriculture sector in Telangana State,” he said.
“Amit Shah is hoping to replicate Uttar Pradesh model in Telangana. But people of Telangana would repeat Punjab, Bihar or Delhi model of rejecting BJP in their state.
Congress party is all set to return to power in next elections and Amit Shah or any other leader will not be able to reverse the trend even if they stay permanently in Telangana,” Uttam Kumar Reddy said.
The TPCC chief also questioned the silence of Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao over Amit Shah’s claims of Centre giving Rs. 1 lakh crore funds to Telangana State.
“While KCR keeps praising Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Amit Shah has openly targeted the TRS Government for its failures. KCR should give an explanation over his secret pact with the BJP,” he said adding that both BJP and TRS are secret partners and they are trying to mislead the people through blame-game politics.
Uttam Kumar Reddy asked the Congress leaders to ensure participation of at least 10 workers from each Gram Panchayat in the State in the ‘Telangana Praja Garjana’ meeting to be addressed by AICC Vice-President Rahul Gandhi at Sangareddy on June 1.
He said Rahul Gandhi would release a Chargesheet on the failures of TRS and BJP Governments during the last three years. “Rahul Gandhi will also unveil Congress party’s plans to take agriculture and other sectors out of crisis.
No section of the society is satisfied with the performance of BJP Government at the Centre or the TRS Government in Telangana. People are now looking back at the Congress party with the hope that it could bail them out of present crisis.
All Congress workers should feel the responsibility and act accordingly to make Rahul Gandhi’s meeting a grand success,” he said.
AICC Secretary R.C. Khuntia, former minister R. Damodar Reddy, DCC President B. Bhikshamaiah Goud and other senior leaders also addressed the meeting. (INN)
