HYDERABAD: Leader of Opposition in Legislative Council Mohd Ali Shabbir on Tuesday charged the TRS government of not producing even a single mega watt of energy since it came to power. “Instead of stating facts, the TRS government has made a false claim of TS being surplus in power by supplying 3,000-4,000 MW of power it purchased from other states,” he said.
Accusing the CM of always bluffing and resorting to gimmicks to divert the attention from failures on all fronts, Mr Shabbir Ali said the achievement of Congress governments was showcased well at the Sriram Sagar project itself.
Narrating how he had successfully campaigned for installing 9x4 MW hydel turbines at the reservoir in 2005 and later dedicated it to the nation in 2007, Mr Shabbir Ali said this is an example of Congress’ achievements.
“KCR is just making announcements and the benefits and sops were cornered by TRS agents and middlemen and it is not reaching the needy farmers and rural poor. You have made announcements of Bhadradri-1,080 MW, Yadadri-4,000 MW and Mancherial-800 MW. Where are they and what is the progress of works so far and have they been giving power to fields and industries?" Mr Shabbir Ali asked.
