WARANGAL: Criticising chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao for preventing students from taking part in TJAC’s Koluvula Kotlata (struggle for jobs) public meeting in Hyderabad, senior TDP leader and former minister Revuri Prakash Reddy alleged that the chief minister has a grudge against students as they forced him to continue his fast during Telangana movement in 2009 and now he was taking revenge.
Speaking to reporters here on Tuesday, Prakash Reddy said ever since Chandrasekhar Rao has taken over the reins of the state he has started targeting students and is trying to curb their protests. He came down heavily on the TRS government for house arresting students of Osmania and Kakatiya university.
“When the court had granted permission to hold the meeting what was the need to stop students from taking part in the meeting. This had not happened even during the Telangana movement. KCR’s rule is even worse than emergency. He claims that he is a Telangana struggle movement leader but he is now trying to curb the rights of everyone,” he lamented.
He said the chief minister was crossing all limits and trying to silence the voices of the people. “He is behaving like Hitler. He is not tolerating anyone opposing his decisions. Students and unemployed youth were forced to hold the meeting as the government failed to provide jobs to them. The youth have lost confidence in the government. It’s high time that the people of the state come together and teach a lesson to KCR ,” he said.
