HYDERABAD: TRS leader Harish Rao on Thursday released an open letter, addressed to AP Chief Minister and TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu, asking him explanations for nineteen ‘conspiracies hatched by him against Telangana’. Rao said that ‘anti-Telangana’ Naidu did not have the moral right to contest elections in the State. “Naidu is out to protect the interests of Andhra Pradesh and it is for this reason he is trying to win at least five or six seats here in Telangana,” Rao said adding that ‘wicked Naidu had always acted against Telangana over the past four years’.

“Naidu was responsible for stopping the formation of Telangana, when BJP came to power at the Centre. He was not interested to see the survival of Telangana as a separate state,” Rao said.  In the open letter, Harish Rao asked 19 questions to Naidu. Some of them are listed on the left.

In another meeting, while campaigning in Gajwel on behalf TRS president K Chandrasekhar Rao, Harish Rao said the TRS chief would get more than 50,000 majority in the elections. “KCR is busy with regular adminstration and does not have the time for campaigning,” he added.

On Power Distribution
“When Telangana was facing power shortage in the initial months, Naidu did not share power to Telangana,” Rao said adding that this was a violation of provisions provided in the AP Reorganisation Act.  “Farmers suffered a lot due to lack of power and crops dried up. Is not your cruelty towards Telangana farmers?” he said. Rao added that this ‘crookedness’ on Naidu’s party had cost the Telangana government `4,557 crore as the power had to be purchased from the open market.

TDP promised to construct Palamuru irrigation project
TRS leader Harish Rao contended that ahead of the 2014 Assembly elections, TDP had assured it would construct Palamuru-Rangareddy Lift Irrigation Project. “But after formation of Telangana, Naidu wrote several letters objecting to it,” he said.

‘Spread venom on Kaleshwaram’
Naidu spread venom in the hearts of people against Kaleshwaram Lift Irrigation Scheme, Rao alleged. “Naidu wrote several letters to the Central government against the project,” he said.

‘Responsible for `500 Cr loss to Telangana ‘
The TRS leader claimed that Andhra Pradesh was not sharing power generated at the Sileru Hydel Power Plant. “You (Naidu) do not share power with Telangana. This causes us a loss of `500 crore per year,” he said.

‘Conspiring against irrigation projects’
Harish Rao said that Naidu had wanted to stop the construction of much-needed irrigation projects in the State such as Kaleshwaram and Palamuru.  “Is this not crooked behaviour,” he asked
