Prabhakar along with senior congress leader T Jeevan Reddy and other party activists submitted his papers to the District Collector and Returning Officer Sarfaraz Ahmed. Speaking on the occasion, Prabhakar questioned as to why Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao had started his parliament election campaign from Karimnagar if the local Telangana Rashtra Samithi MP candidate was strong enough. Referring to TRS leaders’ claim that the party would play a vital role in the Centre if it wins 16 MP seats, he said out 543 Lok Sabha seats, 16 MPs were 3 per cent. What would TRS do with such a meager numbers? he questioned..
Stating that Rahul Gandhi was congress party’s Prime Minister candidate, he questioned that who is PM candidate of TRS. TRS compromised in implementation of promises made to Telangana in AP Reorganization Act by colluding with BJP led Union government, he said. Jeevan Reddy said though TRS along with MIM has already had 16 MPs, but it had done nothing for the welfare of the State. It even failed to achieve national status for Pranahita-Chevella project. Besides national status for project, Rs 1 lakh crore financial assistance would also be given to Telangana after Congress comes to power at the Centre..
