Polls will change political landscape in Telangana, says Uttam

Hyderabad: Congress MP and Huzurnagar candidate N. Uttam Kumar Reddy on Monday said that the Assembly elections will completely change the political landscape of Telangana, and the Congress would get a clear victory with over 80 seats.

Speaking to media persons during a campaign rally in Huzurnagar on Monday, Uttam Kumar Reddy said the election “would lead to the retirement of dozens of BRS legislators who failed to perform in the last decade. They would be replaced with Congress leaders who have a strong desire to develop Telangana.”

He said Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao himself has given several indications of BRS’ defeat and the Congress’ victory. The Congress leader also took aim at Chandrashekar Rao's claims about his role in the formation of Telangana, stating that it was the Congress and its leader Sonia Gandhi who granted statehood to Telangana.

He further asserted that Telangana became a reality due to a long and sustained movement launched by students, youth, employees, lawyers, journalists, and other sections of society.

"KCR is wrongly trying to take the sole credit for Telangana formation," Uttam Kumar Reddy said. "Sonia Gandhi granted statehood to the region as she wanted to stop youth from committing suicides. The Congress sacrificed its existence in Andhra Pradesh to grant statehood for Telangana. No other political party could imagine giving such a big sacrifice only to honour its words."

Uttam Kumar Reddy said that the BRS regime would be remembered for corruption, nepotism, arrogance, and dictatorial attitude and said the BRS government had failed to deliver on the promises it made to the people to develop Telangana and improve the lives of its people.
