Digvijay attacks Telangana CM; accuses him of graft

Hyderabad: AICC general secretary Digvijay Singh today alleged that Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao was indulging in corruption while ignoring the poor in the state.

Addressing the concluding session of the two-day training programme for Congress sarpanchs and deputy sarpanchs here, Singh accused the Chief Minister of “luring and intimidating” the elected representatives of opposition parties to join the ruling party.

“KCR is good at planning corruption, but not welfare schemes for the poor…KCR family is buying the MLAs and other elected representatives as vegetables. This is an insult to all elected representatives,” Singh said.

“KCR is accumulating huge illegal wealth with a plan to buy votes in next elections. However, the Chief Minister must realise that voters of Telangana are not for sale,” he said.

The Congress leader also slammed the TRS government for “not fulfilling” promises like providing three acres of land to each Dalit family and double bed room houses for poor.

“KCR is busy feeding his own family,” he alleged.

Singh said both KCR and Prime Minister Narendra Modi were spreading falsehood against previous Congress Government by openly denying the facts.
