Finally Congress Swings Into Action On Miyapur Land Scam
Hyderabad: Congress Party which would be the first to criticize TRS government on any issue that comes to light is appearing to be silent till Wednesday. The Congress party was on the back foot regarding Miyapur land scam, though it is describing it as the biggest scam in the country. However, all the senior leaders were not entertaining the media and were not criticising the government.
Those observing the events unfold, are saying that the T Congress leaders are behaving weirdly without coming to public and take advantage of the situation. From the TPCC chief who would call for a press conference on any issue, that he felt would get them some brownie points, is rarely seen crticising those involved in the scam and the government too. Infact, they are avoiding public glare in order to stay quiet.
In order to dispel the doubts and stem the criticism, Congress leaders under the leadership of Telangana Congress chief Uttam Kumar Reddy visited Miyapur lands and also met Governor on Thursday. They also alleged that Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao’s family members were direct beneficiaries apart from some TRS party leaders. They sought Governor’s intervention to go for CBI enquiry into what is being described as the biggest scam in the country.
To activate the Congress cadre which was disappointed that their leaders failed in taking advantage of Miyapur landscam, the Congress visited the lands.
While BJP and TDP are ahead in criticizing and attacking the government on the land scam, Congress was seen nowhere. The TDP tried to blow it out of proportions. The TDP leaders met the Government chief secretary, went for a field visit and later complained to the Governor. They are even preparing to complain to the Central government.
Meanwhile, BJP on Wednesday said that they are sending all the details regarding the scam to the Centre and demanding investigation.
But the Congress, which is claiming that it would form government in 2019, was slow on the land scam. Only after the Telugu Desam leaders sought appointment of Governor, they have pressed Ranga Reddy leaders into service and on Thursday met the Governor too.
Meanwhile, speculations and rumours are doing rounds regarding the silence of Congress leaders. While, the land scam started during Congress rule, many leaders fear that their links might come to light in the scam. Even TRS MP KK stated that he bought the land when he was in the Congress party.
