Bandi questions KTR's response in drugs case
DECCAN CHRONICLE | dc correspondent
KARIMNAGAR: BJP state chief and Karimnagar MP Bandi Sanjay Kumar likened BRS working president K.T Rama Rao’s response on narcotics test to a dog barking after a thief has left.
Speaking to media persons in Karimnagar on Wednesday, Sanjay felt KTR has responded to narcotics issue now only to divert attention of people in view of the Cooperative Electricity Supply Society (CESS) elections.
The BJP chief pointed out that Rama Rao did not choose to speak about the Hyderabad drugs case when it had been exposed long ago. He also did not respond when TPCC chief challenged KTR to undergo the narcotics test.
Sanjay wanted to know why the state government has not revealed report of the Special Investigation Team (SIT) that went into the drugs case.
On the issue of being cultured when speaking, the BJP chief asked what happened to Rama Rao’s culture when he made comments about him (Sanjay) using tobacco. "The minister’s sister Kavitha said she will hit BJP MP D. Aravind with chappal. His father KCR warned that he will cut me into six pieces. And the previous day, KTR said that he will hit me with chappal," the Karimnagar MP countered.
He observed that after the KCR family has acquired a huge amount of money, all the family members have lost their culture and are making such comments.
The BJP chief wanted to know what happened to the 400 crore sanctioned for development of Sri Raja Rajeshwara Swamy temple in Vemulawada and 100 crore released for Dharmapuri temple. He accused the state government of using the money donated by devotees.
Sanjay wanted to know why KTR’s relative B. Vinod Kumar did not take up the ROB at Theegalaguttapally when the latter was the Karimnagar MP. "It is because of my efforts as MP, that central government has extended financial support for the ROB works. Why is state government not giving its share of 80 crore so that the ROB can be taken up," he asked.
