Panchayat Raj minister Errabelli Dayakar Rao (DC)

KARIMNAGAR: Panchayat Raj minister Errabelli Dayakar Rao said on Wednesday that BJP state chief Bandi Sanjay is a political joker and behaving like a Tupaki Ramudu.

“The people are laughing at him by hearing the statements during his Padayatra, Rao said during his visit to the Karimnagar district. The minister participated in several developmental initiatives in Velichala village and in an awareness programme of the Village Child Protection Committee at the Collectorate.

After distributing pensions to around 780 beneficiaries at a programme held in Velichala village in the presence of Choppadandi MLA Sunke Ravishankar, the minister sharply attacked the BJP chief.

“When Narendra Modi is sanctioning `500 as pension to the poor in his Gujarat state, Telangana is giving `2,000 as pension to the needy. Telangana state is supplying 24 hours of free power to the farming sector while the BJP-ruled states are supplying only six hours of free power.”

Apart from this, they are fixing meters to the farm motors and collecting lakhs of rupees from the farmers, he alleged.

“If Bandi Sanjay has guts, he must do a Padayatra in Karnataka and UP. Being the MP from Karimnagar, he is unable to get a medical college for the district.

Earlier, the minister participated in the VCPC awareness meeting organised by district collector Karnan and released the poster. Dayakar Rao said 12,769 committees will be formed across the state for protection of children and these committees should follow the guidelines issued by the Child Rights Commission.

The sarpanches of various villages attending the meeting requested the minister to sanction the bills pending for the past three months like the one on the Palle Pragathi programme.

The minister expressed his anger when the sarpanchs tried to raise their voice by saying that he too will raise his voice louder.

Meanwhile, BSP leaders tried to block the convoy of the minister demanding that the state government strengthen the social welfare hostels and resolve the issues pertaining to welfare hostels across the state. Police intervened and arranged passage to the minister.
