Law will take its own course: KTR
HYDERABAD: Telangana IT Minister Rama Rao today observed that Telugu Desam leaders had committed a big blunder and desperately tried to drag others in the grave they had dug for themselves in the cash-for vote scam.
Interacting with the media in New Delhi after meeting Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu this morning, Rao responding to questions said that law would take its own course of action in dealing with the scam. The TDP leaders were in a quandary for the past fortnight, and in their utter desperation were leveling accusations against TRS, he observed.
Asserting that TRS was busy in its commitment for the development of the new state of Telangana, as a lot more has yet to be done, Rao said that, responsible persons in the TRS government were busy in trying their best to secure all possible financial assistance from the central government. As part of this, he had come to the national capital, he added.
He further said that he had invited Venkaiah Naidu to attend an international convention being planned in Hyderabad shortly and brought to his attention various issues confronting the state that needed to be resolved as soon as possible.
Rao disclosed that, during his meeting with the HUDCO Chairman Ravikanth, he had sought an assistance of 25,000 crore rupees for taking up drinking water projects in the state. The HUDCO had agreed to grant a loan amount of 10,000 crore rupees for the water grid.
He later called on Union Transport Minister Nitin Ghadkari. During his meeting, he stressed the imperative need for treating 1000 KM of roads in Telangana State as national highway, besides granting class-one city status to Siddipet. (NSS)
