KHAMMAM: TPCC vice-president has accused chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao of cheating people and transferring employees and teachers during the ongoing general transfer process by considering each erstwhile united district as one unit instead of taking every newly-created district as a unit.
Addressing mediapersons at the R& B guest house here on Sunday, Prabhakar alleged that in order to divert the attention of employees from the irregularities taking place in the transfers, the new zonal system was brought in.
Referring to the chief minister’s Delhi tour, the Congress leader said that instead of exerting pressure on the prime minister to implement the promises made to TS during bifurcation, Chandrasekhar Rao placed a new wish-list before Modi. During the NITI Aayog meeting, AP CM N Chandrababu Naidu spoke for 20 minutes about unfulfilled promises such as special status and bifurcation commitments but KCR had not raised promises made to TS that remained unfulfilled.
“Byyaram steal factory issue is a classic example of this. Even though the central government categorically submitted an affidavit to the Supreme Court, saying that it was not possible to set up an integrated steel plant at Bayyaram in Telangana, KCR did not mention it in his speech at NITI Aayog meeting. Why is he tight-lipped before the PM? Why is he afraid of Modi?” he wondered.
Prabhakar ridiculed railway authorities’ decision to run a new train from Kacheguda to Karimnagar via Nizamabad. “No one is travelling by the new train except TRS and BJP leaders. Instead, they should have sanctioned regular trains to Tirupati and Shirdi from Karimnagar,” he said.
