At his maiden public meeting in his native Medak district after state bifurcation, Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) chief K Chandrasekhar Rao has called upon people of Telangana to see that TRS, the ‘native party’, forms government in the new state. Addressing a well-attended meeting at Dakur village on outskirts of Andol Assembly Constituency on Tuesday, Rao said Telangana does not need a government formed by parities of another state. When West Bengal can be led by Mamata Benerjee, Tamil Nadu by AIDMKA and DMK, Odisha by Naveen Patnaik, why can’t Telangana have the government formed by a party of its own? he asked. Saying corruption, especially political corruption, as the root cause of underdevelopment and all ills in the society, the TRS chief said as the son of the soil, who had achieved Telangana, he will not rest till he ends political corruption. “Be it my son or daughter, if they resort to corruption, they will be put in jail. None will be spared,” he said. Criticising C Damodara Raja Narasimha, former deputy CM and Andol MLA, in his own backyard, the TRS chief alleged large-scale corruption in the constituency. “Several crores of ruppes were misappropriated. There were irregularites to the tune of `150 crore in the constituency in tank irrigation projects. An inquiry will be ordered into the corruption in the constituency,” he said. Holding previous TDP and Congress governments as the reason for the backwardness of Telangana and their faulty policies for the power cuts and farmer suicides, Rao said farmers are in debt trap. He said their loans up to `1 lakh would be waived. In Telangana, state government employees will be paid salaries on par with Central government employees and there will be no contract staff, he said. Stating there will be no options for Andhra employees, he reassured youth of Telangana not to worry about jobs, as there will be plenty once Andhra employees leave. He said another 14 districts will be created in Telangana state, which will require an additional 1 lakh employees for administration purposes. “In the next three years, 13,000 mw power will be produced in Telangana, for which another 1.25 lakh employees will be required,” he said. Education from KG to PG will be mandatory and free for poor. Police department will be entrusted to see that every school-going child is attending school. For any school dropouts, the sub-inspector of the respective area will be held responsible and suspended, he said. Assuring that Nizam Sugars in Nizambad will be taken over by the government, he said a sugarcane research institute will be set up at Jogipet. He also promised to irrigate 1 lakh acres at Jogipet and bring drinking water to the town by expanding the capacity of Singur project. Reiterating his promise of houses for poor, he asked them not to repay house loans. The government will bear the entire expenditure of the house, which will be a double bedroom one with hall and kitchen, for comfortable living. On health, he promised to upgrade or set up hospitals on the lines of Nims for every 50 km and pay `1 lakh to the doctors serving in government hospitals in rural areas and also to ensure best infrastructure facilities for PHCs. On the occasion, BB Patil, an industrialist from Nizamabad, joined TRS in the presence of KCR. Also, Karanam Uma Devi, former MLA and widow of former minister Karanam Ramachandra Rao, along with her son Somashekara Rao joined TRS. There were some two dozen leaders from Congress and TDP from both Medak and Nizambad district who joined TRS on the occasion. Former Minister Babu Mohan, who was supposed to join TRS at the public meeting on Tuesday, did not turn up as he was said to be indisposed. He is likely to joint TRS later.
