Don’t Vote Us if We Fail to Deliver : KCR
HYDERABAD: Chief Minister Chandrasekhar Rao today reiterated that the TRS would not seek votes in 2019 elections if his government failed to provide safe drinking water to every house-hold.
Lashing out at previous Congress regime for failing to supply water, the KCR said the TRS would not ask for votes in the next general elections if it failed to supply safe drinking water to every household in the districts. “We are committed to implement Water Grid program to serve the purpose”, he stated.
Addressing the TRS party plenary at LB Stadium on Friday, KCR flayed his AP counterpart Chandrababu Naidu for claiming that previous TDP government had alone developed Hyderabad. “It is shame on part of such leaders who often come in the way of Telangana development and brag they had alone developed Telangana”, he alleged, adding that the AP Government was continuously creating hurdles with regard to power and water. Yet, the TRS government succeeded in tiding over the power crisis, he declared.
The Chief Minister KCR claimed that 43 percent fitment was announced for the State government employees, despite a burden of 6,500 crore rupees to the State exchequer. Besides, the government spent 17,000 crore rupees on crop loan waiver to help 34 lakh farmers in the State and another 480 crore rupees towards input subsidy. Stating that advocates and working journalists too played a key role in the statehood movement, Rao said the government earmarked huge funds for their welfare.
He also said the Telangana Government will launch within 10 days a power plant at the abode of Lord Lakshmi Narsimha Swamy temple at Yadadri.
Palamur people will get safe drinking water through the Krishna River. “To empower rural people, every year we will restore 9,000 lakes and water bodies and the works are going on under mission mode with active participation of the people and leaders alike, he stated.
Promising to provide uninterrupted power supply to industries and companies, KCR said that the new industrial policy, which is yet to be launched, will prove handy for them to rope in huge investments and offer employment to local talent. He also said Metro Railway lines are being extended to cater to future needs of the people in the twin cities. Since the separate statehood movement was meant for jobs, resources and waters, the TRS Government will accord priority to them and live up to the peoples’ expectations, Rao stated. (NSS)
