Hyderabad: Prajakutami leaders on Monday alleged that caretaker Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao was behaving like a dictator, and criticised his four-and-a-half year rule.
TPCC president N. Uttam Kumar Reddy, CPI general secretary Suravaram Sudhakar Reddy, TJS chairman Prof. M. Kodandaram and Telangana State TD president L. Ramana who met to discuss alliance matters on Monday utilised the opportunity to launch a joint attack on Mr Rao.
Mr Uttam Kumar Reddy said this was a crucial period to end the “dictator’s rule” in the state. “The contracts of Kaleshwaram and other projects were given to contractors to benefit the family of K. Chandrasekhar Rao with six per cent commission in each,” he said.
He said caretaker minister K.T. Rama Rao did not have the stature to criticise Congress president Rahul Gandhi. “If the TRS wins this election accidentally, democracy will not survive. K. Chandrasekhar Rao and Prime Minister Narendra Modi are suppressing all democratic institutions in the country,” the TPCC president said.
Prof. Kodandaram said, “Society wants to end the dictatorship and all political parties should work against the TRS. The youth are angry as they did not get jobs. People are not allowing TRS candidates to enter villages.”
Mr Ramana told this newspaper that, “The TRS graph has gone down, from 60 seats to 30 seats in just 45 days. The people are unable to tolerate the fact that the state was in the hands of a single family.”...
