Talasani slams opposition for witch-hunting KCR
Hyderabad: Animal Husbandry Minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav has lashed out at the opposition leaders for their rhetoric against Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao and IT Minister K T Rama Rao. He faulted the opposition for belittling KCR and KTR and demanding KTR’s resignation on moral grounds for the collapse of a multi-storeyed building in Nanakramguda.
Addressing the media at Secretariat on Saturday, Srinivas Yadav fumed at the opposition leaders and threw a challenge to them to get ready for a debate in the winter session of Assembly. “We are ready to discuss about 40 years of rule by the previous governments and will explain what the TRS has done so far during its two-and-a-half year stint,” he said.
The minister also accused the opposition of making derogatory remarks against KCR and KTR in a mindless manner. The government was aware of the note ban woes in the state and brought the situation to the notice of the Centre, Talasani said. KCR had taken up the issue with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the TRS Government was supporting the Centre with regard to any issue for maintaining cordial relations with it.
He said the KCR government spent Rs 1900 crores for providing drinking water to LB Nagar, Malkajgiri, Kutbullapur and Serilingampally municipalities and agreed to opposition leader K Jana Reddy’s appeal for release of 100 per cent of funds for Assembly Constituency Development. The TRS Government gave Rs 3,600- crore arrears of fees reimbursement left unpaid by the previous Kiran Kumar Reddy government and waived off the crop loans.
Talasani claimed that the state government was committed to the welfare of the people, farmers and the aged. He also cited that the Mission Kakatiya, Mission Bhagiratha, pension scheme, fine rice to hostels, Kalyana Lakhsmi, Shadi Mubarak and others. “We are giving top priority for filling posts through TSPSC in other departments and completing irrigation projects and spending huge funds. The opposition was resorting to baseless allegations for propaganda sake, he alleged. -NSS
