Hyderabad: Targeting both Congress and BJP, TRS working president K.T. Rama Rao on Wednesday appealed to the public to vote in favour of regional parties as the nation hasn’t benefited from the rule of national parties.
KTR, who was speaking at an election rally in Malkajgiri parliament constituency, announced that the government plans to construct two skyways (Paradise circle to Suchitra) and (Jubilee bus station to Shamirpet).
Criticising the Centre for the delay in approval to the Telangana State government’s plan, he said, “we approached all the three defence ministers, (Manohar Parrikar, Arun Jaitely and Nirmala Sitharaman) but none responded. We (TS government) have asked 100 acres of defense land to construct two flyovers in Secunderabad. In exchange, we offered 500 acres in Shamirpet. We made multiple requests which were unanswered. The leaders at the centre never gave permissions”.
Over the last four years, the TS government allocated Rs 2.5 crores to Ramanakunta, However the Cantonment board members never let the work progress, KTR said. “A total of Rs 17 crores worth water bills of the poor people were waived off by the Telangana government. Five Annapurna canteens were set up in Cantonment area though it was pertaining only to GHMC, he added.
KTR went on and said that the Congress candidate Revanth Reddy lost the election in Kodangal and is trying his luck in Malkajgiri.
“Choose your leader wisely,” said KTR....
