KARIMNAGAR:After targeting TRS government on the Nerella incident, the Congress is now planning to make sanctioning of medical college to Karimnagar, a major issue.Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) chief N Uttam Kumar Reddy, while criticising the Telangana government for denying medical college to Karimnagar, announced that his party would set up medical college in the district after coming to power in 2019.

The TPCC chief, who came to the city to express solidarity with the fast-unto-death undertaken by former Karimnagar MP Ponnam Prabhakar on Monday, launched a scathing attacked on Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, his son KT Rama Rao, son-in-law T Harish Rao and his daughter K Kavitha, and said that they are arrogant and are trying to silence the voices of people.  Addressing Congress leaders as ‘Sanniasi’ and ‘Daddamma’, he said that the CM should not forget that it was Congress which had created Telangana. “You criticised former Lok Sabha speaker Meira Kumar on the issue of torture of Dalits by police. You are forgetting that as the Speaker, she played a vital role in passing the reorganisation bill,” he said.

Refuting the allegation that Congress was creating hurdle in the regularisation of electricity contract employees, the TPCC chief reminded that it was TRS leader Satyam Reddy who had approached the court on regularisation and not Congress as it was being propagandised. Uttam Kumar alleged that the Chief Minister was adopting double standard on Goods and Services Tax issue and misleading people.
