TRS failed on many fronts, says Rahul Gandhi...

Bhainsa: Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday said the three demands that drove Telangana statehood movement, neellu (water), nidhulu (funds) and niyamakalu (jobs), had not been fulfilled by the TRS government. .

Addressing well-attended public meetings at Kamareddy and Bhainsa, the AICC president said the Congress party had given separate statehood for Telangana, out of respect for the sentiments of the people of the State and the sacrifices being made by youth for the cause. “But the TRS party led by Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao deceived Telangana people and violated promises given in its election manifesto,” Rahul Gandhi said.

Instead of keeping its promises with respect to the three slogans that powered the statehood movement, the TRS government, Rahul Gandhi said, spent the time in the guise of project redesign.

The TRS government, he charged, failed to fulfil its promises of providing a job to each and every family, issue three-acre land to SC landless farmers, to construct double-bedroom houses, implement KG to PG education and supply safe drinking water to each and every family.

Promising to revive the Nizam Sugar Factory in Nizamabad if the Congress comes to power in Telangana, Rahul Gandhi said the TRS government had Rs 300 crore for constructing a new house for the Chief Minister but did not have any money to rescue sugarcane farmers of the State.

While the Narendra Modi led government looted the country by giving out a contract worth thousands of crores of rupees to his friend Anil Ambani in the Rafale fighter aircraft deal, the Telangana government inflated irrigation project costs by Rs 35,000 crore..
