HYDERABAD: AICC general secretary and  party's state incharge Digvijaya Singh on Friday lashed out at the TRS government for neglecting development of Hyderabad in its 18-month rule.

Joining the campaign for GHMC polls, Digvijaya Singh conducted roadshows and addressed public meetings at various divisions in the city. Addressing the gatherings, Digivijaya Singh said the previous Congress regime has developed international airport, Outer Ring Road, Metro Rail and several other projects for Hyderabad city.

''The TRS government, in its 18-month rule has not initiated a single project for Hyderabad,'' he said.

''The TRS government does not have any respect for women and this is evident from the fact that not a single woman was inducted into the state cabinet,'' Digvijaya Singh said at a public meeting at Jammigadda in Tarnaka.

Speaking on the occasion, TPCC chief N Uttam Kumar Reddy said KCR, during his e-campaign yesterday, spread lies that it is giving 24 hour power supply by increasing power generation. ``The fact is that not a single unit of additional power is generated in the state. The power that was earlier consumed for agriculture sector is now diverted to others as the agriculture sector is in distress,'' he said.

Later, Digvijaya Singh met Archbishop Tumma Bala in his residence at Secunderabad.

Digvijaya Singh, in the evening, conducted roadshows and addressed public meetings at Chandrayangutta and Charminar areas in the Old City.
