Congress Will Make a Clean Sweep in Mahbubnagar District, Says Revanth

Hyderabad: TPCC chief A. Revanth Reddy on Tuesday said that the Congress would make a clean sweep of erstwhile undivided Mahbubnagar district in the state Assembly polls by winning all 14 Assembly constituencies here.

Addressing public meetings in Wanaparthy, Nagarkurnool and Achampet in Mahbubnagar on Tuesday, Revanth Reddy launched a scathing attack on Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao, accusing him of completely neglecting the district, despite its electorate electing him as its MP in 2009 and provided him “political rebirth” after it became clear that he would lose from the Karimnagar Lok Sabha seat, which he represented from 2004 to 2009.

There was a huge turnout at each public meeting, with slogans of “CM Revanth” doing the rounds on his arrival at the venue. While he previously urged his supporters not to raise such slogans, he remained silent on this occasion.

“KCR was desperate to move out of Karimnagar in 2009 Lok Sabha polls as all surveys clearly indicated that he would lose. He searched for another seat and opted for Mahbubnagar as part of alliance with TD. KCR campaigned that he should win to keep Telangana statehood agitation alive. I was Kodangal MLA in the same district then.”

“Along with other leaders of the district, I worked for KCR's victory for the cause of statehood to Telangana. He promised to adopt Mahbubnagar district and develop it on all fronts once Telangana state is formed, but he deceived Mahbubnagar people by not doing anything in the past 10 years,” he said.

Revanth Reddy gave a clarion call to the Mahbubnagar electorate to teach a fitting lesson to Rao by ensuring the defeat of BRS candidates in all the 14 Assembly constituencies.

He also slammed agriculture minister S. Niranjan Reddy, the BRS candidate from Wanaparthy, for allegedly indulging in large-scale corruption in the past five years.

“Niranjan Reddy followed in the footsteps of his bosses KCR and KTR and constructed a huge farmhouse like them. He looted public wealth and did nothing for the development of Mahbubnagar district as a minister,” Revanth Reddy alleged.

Addressing public meetings in Nagarkurnool and Achampet, he gave a strong counter to Rao for terming ‘Indiramma Rajyam’ a regime of starvation and poverty.

Revanth Reddy said that Indiramma Rajyam was a regime that provided shelter to the poor in remote villages, distributed 25 lakh acres of assigned lands to the poor, provided irrigation water for agriculture by building projects and provided reservations for girl children in local institutions.

“If there was no Indiramma Rajyam and if Sonia Gandhi would not have given statehood to Telangana, KCR's family would have been begging now at Birla Mandir or Nampally Dargah in Hyderabad. Indiramma Rajyam gave KCR a chance to become a single-window director in Siddipet. Have you forgotten that Sanjay Gandhi, the son of Indira Gandhi, who appointed you as the president of Youth Congress,” he asked.
