KCR Let Down Telangana Youth: Uttam, Tammineni
Suryapet: Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) President Capt. N. Uttam Kumar Reddy has blamed the wrong policies of TRS Government for the existing unemployment crisis in the State.
He was addressing a massive public meeting on Friday in his constituency Huzur Nagar as part of CPI (M)’s Mahajana Padayatra, which is being led by CPM’s State Secretary Tammineni Veerabhadram.
Uttam Kumar Reddy said that the TRS Government has completely neglected the jobless youth in the State. Reminding that Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao that he himself had admitted in the Assembly that there are 107,744 vacancies in various departments in the State, he said that the government has so far filled only 4,295 posts. He said that the government was trying to mislead the jobless youth by making mere announcements on recruitment drivers. But in reality, nothing is being done to fill those posts. “Not even 4% of identified vacant posts have been filled during the last 33 months. Further, not a single new job has been created during the last 999 days since TRS came to power. KCR has provided employment to all his family members, but left the jobless youth in Telangana to their fate,” he alleged.
The TPCC chief said that the KCR government has proved to be a bane for poor jobs aspirants. “KCR is simply not concerned or interested in addressing the issue of unemployment. At one side he neglected filling up of vacant posts and failed to create new jobs. On the other, he supported the demonitisation decision of BJP Government at the Centre which snatched lakhs of jobs in the private sector since November 8 last year,” he said.
Describing KCR as anti-youth, Uttam Kumar Reddy slammed the Chief Minister for not clearing the dues towards Fee Reimbursement. “KCR is playing with the lives and careers of nearly 14 lakh students and their families in Telangana. He failed to honour the commitment that he gave on the floor of the Assembly on clearing the dues. In addition, the fate of nearly 2.5 lakh employees of private colleges hangs in balance as managements have failed to pay them salaries for several months. KCR must come out of the boundaries of Pragathi Bhavan to check, understand and realise the reality of sufferings of people of Telangana,” he said.
Uttam Kumar Reddy also condemned the TRS Government for its failure to clear the dues under crop loan waiver scheme. He said that the State Government has recently borrowed Rs. 7,400 Crore for Mission Bhagaritha to make payments to the contractors. But it is unwilling to arrange about Rs. 4,000 crore to free nearly 34 lakh farmers from their debts.
The TPCC chief has praised CPM leader Veerabhadram for the successful conduct of Mahajana Padayatra to highlight people’s issues. He said that the Congress party would extend total support and cooperation to the CPI (M) in exposing the failures of TRS Government in the State.
Earlier, the CPM leader, Tammineni Veerabhadram, addressed the meeting and praised Uttam Kumar Reddy for leading the battle against the anti-people TRS Government. (NSS)
