Congress Leader Accuses BRS Government of Jailing Farmers, Demands SIT Investigation

Hyderabad: The BRS government is jailing farmers under non-bailable cases even as it is celebrating the 10th anniversary of state formation, said Congress senior leader V. Hanumantha Rao. After doing so, Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao was going to Maharashtra and claiming that he was running a ‘kisan sarkar.’

Hanumantha Rao, former PCC president, said the government was not paying compensation to farmers in the state whose crops were damaged by unseasonal rains, but was paying farmers in Punjab to shore up the Chief Minister’s image.

He said that the payment of commission to BRS leaders to get double bedroom houses and Dalit Bandhu allotment had become the norm, rather than the exception. “We demand that a special investigation team (SIT) be constituted to determine the reality. I am ready to take political sanyas if proved wrong,” he said.

Hanumantha Rao said that the people thought that Chandrashekar Rao would meet them after he began working from the new Secretariat. However, the CM was still not meeting the people, he said.

On the BC Garjana, Hanumantha Rao said the date would be decided once TPCC president A. Revanth Reddy returns from his tour abroad.
