Jeevan faults KCR
- Unfit to be CM since he could not meet PM
- Even Union Power Minister did not have time for CM
Hyderabad, January 14: Pointing out that Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao had failed to get an appointment to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his recent visit to the national capital, senior Congress leader and former minister Jeevan Reddy said KCR was not fit to be chief minister of the State.
Speaking to media persons at Assembly media point here on Tuesday, the Congress leader said the Chief Minister of the 29th State of the country could not meet even Union Minister for Power for demanding the State’s rights under AP Reorganization Act, 2015. Because of KCR’s failure to solve the power problem in the State, the depressed farmers committed suicides, he added.
Lambasting KCR for not guiding properly the State administration to fight legally with AP government on the matters relating to sharing of power as per State’s Reorganization Act, the Congress leader said though Telangana State is entitled to get 54 per cent of power which is being generated in AP, the TRS government could not demand its share from the AP. Jeevan Reddy urged KCR to go to Delhi again and consult with Central Government or file a petition in the Supreme Court on power and water issues.
He further pointed out that at the time of AP bifurcation, by knowing the fact that the gap in demand and supply in the Telangana State was wide, then UPA government took a decision in favor of Telangana State by allocating more power to it. But, the present Telangana government failed to utilize the clause and doing nothing. (NSS)
