Telangana Congress lashes out at KCR for Bay of Bengal comments
He sought to know as to when the current dispensation will give compensation to farmers.
HYDERABAD: Reacting sharply to Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao asking the people to “dump the Congress into the Bay of Bengal”, the grand old party on Monday said that the BRS supremo was stooping to new lows in his utterances as he was afraid of losing the coming Assembly elections.
Congress leaders said that the people were aware of KCR’s lowly remarks and that they will “submerge the BRS in the Bay of Bengal”.
Coming down heavily against the Chief Minister, CLP leader Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka, addressing a corner meeting on the 81st day of his padayatra, advised the Chief Minister to refrain from making vacuous statements. He said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi failed by calling for a Congress-Mukt Karnataka, and KCR too will meet the same fate in Telangana.
“Is any section in the State happy with the current dispensation? The people will throw megalomaniac KCR and his party in the Bay of Bengal in the next elections,” Vikramarka said.
Addressing a press conference, former MP Ponnam Prabhakar said that Congress will toss the Dharani portal into the Bay of Bengal immediately after coming to power.
He alleged that farmers have ended their lives by suicide due to “ill-conceived” policies like the Dharani portal. He sought to know when the current dispensation will give compensation to farmers.
TPCC senior vice-president G Niranjan said that KCR was trying to get close to the BJP-led Union government by making statements against Congress. He also alleged the Chief Minister’s statements were only aimed at protecting his daughter and MLC K Kavitha.
Elsewhere, Kisan Congress leader Kondanda Reddy argued that the Dharani portal was plagued with irregularities, and it was the demand of the people to dump it.
