HYDERABAD: Reiterating his challenge thrown at Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao on irrigation projects, Leader of the Opposition K Jana Reddy has said that he is ready to act as a “publicity worker” for Rao if the government completes the irrigation projects in three years’ time.
Speaking to reporters here on Wednesday on the outcome of the Warangal Lok Sabha bypoll, Jana Reddy reacted to Rao’s call to him to be ready to sport TRS kanduva. Rao said that he would complete the irrigation projects in three years unlike which took 12 years or so.
Responding to this, Jana Reddy said that during the election campaign in Warangal, the chief minister said that he would complete the ongoing irrigation projects in Nalgonda, Khammam and Warangal districts in the next three years and provide water for raising two crops every year.
“Reacting to Rao’s announcement I said in Warangal that I would act as a Prachara Sarathi (publicity worker) for KCR if he kept his word. I stand by my challenge. If any international irrigation expert tells me that the ongoing projects in three districts will be completed in the next five years and Rao completes them even in five years’ time, I will work for TRS,” the senior Congress leader said.
On the humiliating defeat of the Congress candidate in the Warangal Lok Sabha byelection, Jana Reddy said, “The Congress is the founder of democratic spirit. It was the architect of the Constitution. Such a party will not get disappointed with one defeat or will not feel proud of a victory. It will respect the feelings and sentiments of voters and always work with the people.”
Announcing that the Congress would strive hard to regain the confidence of the people, Jana Reddy thanked all the Congress workers and leaders who campaigned for the party.
