Hyderabad: Telangana Bharatiya Janata Party president Bandi Sanjay Kumar on Monday lashed out at chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao for making false accusations against the Centre stating that it had introduced the electricity bill making it mandatory for the states to install electricity meters to the agriculture pump sets.
Addressing a massive rally at Ramlila grounds at Qutbullapur on the outskirts of Hyderabad before embarking on his fourth-phase of Praja Sangrama Yatra, Sanjay said KCR had completely misled the state assembly by showing some outdated papers.
Displaying the proposed Electricity (Amendment) Bill, the BJP state president said: “Here is the bill. Let KCR show whether there is any provision on installation of meters to the agriculture pump sets. If he has shame and sense, he should immediately resign from the chief minister’s post and apologise to the people. If I am wrong, I will quit my MP seat.”
Ridiculing the TRS chief projecting himself as a national leader, the BJP leader said in a sarcastic tone: “Desh Ki Neta, Din Bhar Peetha, Farmhouse me sotha, Amas-Punnami ko baahar aatha..” (This national leader keeps consuming liquor all through the day, sleeps in the farm house and comes out once in blue moon). The chief minister has converted Pragathi Bhavan into a virtual KCR Bar and Restaurant, he alleged.
Sanjay wondered what had happened to KCR’s tall claims of making Hyderabad like Dallas, London, Singapore and New York. “He had also announced payment of Rs 1,000 for pointing out every pothole. If he wants to pay the money, his entire state budget will not be sufficient. There are so many potholes on the roads all over the city,” he said.
He alleged that there was no proper drainage system in Hyderabad, while the TRS leaders were encroaching nalas and tanks. “KCR has even promised to make Musi river water as pure as coconut water. Can he drink the same or at least with take a bath with it?” he asked.
