WARANGAL: TRS secretary general and MP K Keshava Rao has alleged that the Opposition parties were resorting to baseless allegations against the TRS as they are desperate to gain the people’s confidence.
Finding fault with former Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar for her comments that the TRS had deceived Telangana people, he said spitting at the TRS is nothing but spitting at themselves.
He also exuded confidence of winning the Warangal Lok Sabha seat with a thumping majority and asserted that the opposition candidates would lose their deposits.
Addressing a press conference here on Monday, Keshava Rao said, “It is not right on the part of Meira Kumar to make such comments. It may be mentioned here that we had indeed thanked her after passing the Telangana bill and also thanked the Congress. But what is important is that who achieved Telanagana, but not who had given Telangana. Everyone knows that it is the TRS party that fought for the separate state,” he said.
Reacting to the allegations over schemes and development works initiated by the TRS government, he said, “We (TRS) are ready to introspect and take corrective measures, if the Opposition comes up with constructive criticism,” and made it clear that they had not initiated these schemes keeping the byelection in view.
Meanwhile, MP Jithendar Reddy appealed to the voters to elect the party nominee with a huge majority. He questioned why the Union government is not bifurcating the High Court and not giving national status to Pranahitha-Chevella.
Dy chief minister Mahmood Ali, MP A Sitaram Naik and others were present at the press meet.
