HYDERABAD: Imploring Telangana activists to recollect the memories of the struggle waged for statehood, BJP State president Bandi Sanjay on Friday urged to them to join hands with the saffron party to remove BRS from power. After hoisting the national flag during the Telangana Formation Day celebrations held at the BJP party office in Nampally, said that the State was moving backwards under the ‘foolish’ rule of Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao.
“The State which was achieved through many struggles, has now been caged by four people, who have swindled the Central government funds amounting to Rs 4 lakh crore which has been allocated to the State in the last nine years,” he said.“If the State has been transformed into a golden Telangana, as is being claimed by ruling party, then why people from all sections of the society are shedding tears? Why have the farmers, RTC workers, people’s representatives in the local bodies, teachers affected by GO 317 and students ended their lives by suicide,” he wondered.
He also wanted to know why the State government was spending hundreds of crores for self-publicity, despite failing on all fronts.Recalling how former Union minister late Sushma Swaraj had rigorously supported the cause of Telangana’s statehood in the Parliament by supporting the AP Reorganisation Bill, he asked the people to remember that it was BJP which had taken a decisionin-principle for the cause, by passing the Kakinada Resolution and giving the slogan “One vote - two States” 25 years ago.
Pointing out that on an average, a family was incurring an average expenditure of Rs 1 lakh for education and Rs 50,000 for health, he promised that after coming to power, BJP will not only make education and health free, but will also ensure that students studying in private educational institutions wouldn’t suffer due to non-payment of fee reimbursement arrears.The State BJP chief assured that his party will promptly make the fee reimbursement payments to lessen the burden on the students, and will also encourage private institutions.
