YSRC leader Sharmila on Saturday refuted TDP supremo N Chandrababu Naidu’s claim that he had developed Hyderabad during the nine-year TDP rule in the State.
Addressing a gathering at Mydukur Royal Circle as part of her ‘Samaikya Shankaravam’ bus yatra, she said that the 400-year-old Hyderabad was a well-developed city long ago - much before the TDP emerged on the political scene of the State. She added that all that Naidu had done was to give away valuable land in the State capital to his near and dear.
In an indirect boost to the Telangana protagonists, she also said that Hyderabad was not developed either by the Seemandhra leaders. Demanding that the TDP chief should take back the letter he had given to the Centre in favour of Telangana, the YSRC leader called upon the people to prevent him from entering the Rayalaseema region until he did so and apologized to them on the issue.
Blaming the TDP chief for conspiring with the Congress to get YSRC chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy jailed, she said that he was now trying to split the family members of late chief minister N T Rama Rao for ensuring a good political future for his son Lokesh. Sharmila alleged that AICC chief Sonia Gandhi had proposed to bifurcate the state only to ensure that her son Rahul Gandhi became the next Prime Minister of the country.
In this connection, Sonia had entered into a secret pact with the TDP, she added. Claiming that it was only the YSRC which had launched the Samaikyandhra agitation, she urged the Seemandhra people to teach a lesson to both the Congress and the TDP for playing havoc with their lives for their selfish political gains. YSRC district convener K Suresh Babu, former Mydukur MLA S Raghurami Reddy, DCCB chairman Tirupal Reddy were among those who accompanied Sharmila.
