HYDERABAD: Taking her cue from her brother KT Rama Rao, Nizamabad MP K Kavitha on Monday unleashed a vitriolic attack on the BJP and asked its state chief G Kishan Reddy and Union minister Bandaru Dattatreya to see that the state gets a Rs 20,000- crore package from the Centre.
“Leave alone others. I will myself vote for the BJP if the two leaders can secure Rs 20,000-crore central assistance,” she said.
Kavitha toured the Khairatabad Assembly constituency being represented by BJP’s Chintala Ramachandra Reddy and addressed TRS party activists there. Kavitha, who is one of the in-charges of party’s campaign for GHMC polls along with Rama Rao, was more attacking than her brother. “If you two leaders (Dattatreya and Kishan Reddy) have the faintest of influence at the Centre, you secure Rs 20,000-crore package for TS,” she fumed.
Alleging that all the previous governments and leaders had only made tall claims of developing Hyderabad, she said, “They talk of Hitec City but forgot to lay proper nalas and drainage pipelines.”
Kavitha also rubbished the claims of Dattatreya’s claim that it was the BJP which allotted more than 50,000 houses under Union government’s Housing for All scheme, and said it was the TRS government which forced the Union ministry concerned to allot the houses.
Kavitha said the TRS was sanctioning 20,000 two-bedroom houses for poor people in Greater Hyderabad alone.
The MP also announced that the TRS would field women in half of the 150 divisions in the GHMC elections.
