Stating that the Hyderabad city was developed only because of ‘Settlers’, Congress leader Renuka Chowdhary has asked IT Minister K T Ramarao, who threw a challenge to the Opposition parties that he will tender his resignation in case TRS party failed to grab the Mayor post, to take up election campaign only after tendering his resignation to his minister post.
Speaking to the media at Gandhi Bhavan here on Thursday, Renuka demanded that Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao tender an apology to the settlers for using filthy language towards them earlier. She said insecurity developed among the settlers when KCR stated that he would raze the Ramoji Film City with one lakh ploughs and also when KCR demolished the Ayyappa Society buildings.
Renuka said everyone was observing that Congress party alone was standing by the settlers’ cause. Finding fault with the TRS statement that it will provide protection to the settlers, Renuka said the Constitution was giving protection to the settlers and there was no need of giving special protection by the TRS government. She pointed out that the TRS party special love towards settlers was only because of GHMC elections.
Renuka also hurled a challenge at KTR that the latter has to make the MLAs, who joined TRS from other parties, to win again by offering resignation to their present positions if he had guts. She alleged that the TRS government has totally failed in extending the fees reimbursement, 104, 108 medical services. The KCR government’s achievements are farmers’ suicides and attacks on hapless women, she quipped.
She exuded confidence that the Congress party, which won in local elections in several other States, would continue its winning spree even in GHMC elections here. (NSS)
