HYDERABAD: Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee president N. Uttam Kumar Reddy has accused Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) working president K.T. Rama Rao of practising “headline management” by making false and hollow claims of development.
Addressing a series of meetings in Nalgonda and Kodad as part of his election campaign for municipal elections, he charged that Rama Rao has even failed to perform as minister for municipal administration and urban development.
Development in areas under municipalities and municipal corporations has come to a standstill ever since TRS came to power, he stated.
The TPCC chief asserted that whatever the existing infrastructure in urban local bodies, it has all been the work of previous Congress regimes. Rama Rao has only been making false claims of development in newspapers and cheating people with fake promises.
Uttam Kumar Reddy alleged that the TRS working president was forcing newspapers to publish his interviews on front page. Such tactics will not work in favour of TRS as people have realised that only Congress can bring in development, he maintained.
The TPCC chief said the TRS government has given least priority in allocating funds to municipalities and municipal corporations. Many urban bodies had no money to bear operational expenses. Even funds for construction of double bedroom houses for weaker sections have not been allotted, he stated.
Uttam Kumar Reddy claimed that the Congress party would win majority of seats in all municipalities and municipal corporations going to polls on January 22.
As promised in its Vision 2020 Document, Congress would ensure better roads, safe drinking water, cleanliness, proper sewerage system and other civic amenities if voted to power, he added....
