HYDERABAD /NALGONDA: The stay on the appointment of Parliamentary Secretaries by the High Court came in handy for the opposition parties to take a dig at the ruling TRS.
Bouyed by the verdict of the high court, Nalgonda MP Gutha Sukhendhar Reddy, who filed the case in the court, said he will fight against the government’s unconstitutional appointments through courts.
Speaking to reporters in Nalgonda, he alleged that Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao was acting like a dictator and misusing public money by making illegal political appointments. “I approached the high court to protect democracy in the state,’’ he claimed and demanded that the State government take back the amount paid as salaries and other allowances to the Parliamentary Secretaries.
Another Congress leader Ponnam Prabhakar said the government was not mending its ways even after being repeatedly admonished by the high court. Ponnam said he will approach the court, if corruption was found in the execution of the proposed Water Grid project. BJP leader Dr K Laxman termed the verdict a slap on the face of the government. ‘‘This is what happens if decisions are taken with an eye on political gains,’’ he said.
