BRS coninuously violating poll code, alleges Congress; complains to EC
New Delhi: Telangana Congress has alleged that the BRS government has been repeatedly violating the Model Code of Conduct (MCC), prompting the party to file a complaint with the Election Commission.
"Our concern is not against providing Rythu Bandhu benefits to farmers; we are, in fact, demanding that the Telangana government transfer these funds to farmers' accounts before November 2. This practice should be followed for transferring funds under all welfare schemes, ensuring beneficiaries receive their entitlements before the nomination day," said A Revanth Reddy, TPCC president while addressing a press conference in New Delhi.
"The party has raised concerns with the Election Commission regarding the misuse of official spaces, such as Pragati Bhavan, the Chief Minister's residence, and MLAs' camp offices, which should not be used for political party activities."
Revanth added that the Congress also raised the issue of favoritism displayed by officials aligned with the BRS party for the past nine years, with the Election Commission. "EC has been urged to appoint IAS and IPS officers as SPs and collectors in all districts and reveal names of those officers who prioritize party agendas over government responsibilities. We've requested the ECI to remove retired officials from service, as they seem to be operating as a private army for the BRS party."
Revanth Reddy alleged that, regarding the sinking pillars of the Medigadda barrage, BRS is attempting to divert attention by making false claims. "The failure of the BRS government in the construction of the Kaleshwaram project, exposed by the Medigadda issue, reveals a lack of proper soil testing and technical adherence during the construction."
BRS's reluctance to take action against contractors suggests corruption in the project, alleged the TPCC chief.
Leaders like Rajagopal Reddy, Vivek, and Vishveshwar Reddy who joined the BJP earlier, decided to exit the party as they realised the apparent alliance between the saffron party and the BRS, Revanth Reddy added.
"The BJP, BRS, and AIMIM are a closely-knit group, appearing to oppose each other while secretly collaborating. After the Telangana assembly elections, they may form an alliance for the upcoming parliamentary elections, much like the BJP did with JDS in Karnataka."
The TPCC chief added that either he or Bhatti Vikramarka will contest against both KCR and KTR, if the party decides.
