Leader of Opposition in Telangana Legislative Council, Mohammed Ali Shabbir today said that it was a morally incorrect and insensitive act of Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao to move into a posh new bungalow built without fulfilling the poll promise of double bed rooms to the poor and while people were suffering due to ‘Note ban and change crisis’ in the state .
Addressing reporters at the CLP office along with Ponguleti Sudhakar Reddy, MLC, Shabbir Ali questioned KCR where was his promise and commitment to build 2.6 lakh double Bed room houses for urban ( One lakh) and rural (1.6 lakh) poor in the state . Instead of fulfilling that promise to poor who voted him to power, the chief minister was busy in House warming ceremony of his new five star bungalow spread over One lakh SFT and with a ‘bullet proof toilet and bedrooms ‘.
Quoting from his October 27 letter to KCR on the issue of luxury camp office, Shabbir Ali said the promises made in the TRS election manifesto were not fully implemented till now, while the TRS leaders were busy in their personal aggrandizement and promotion .The brand new CM’s bungalow within 2-1/2 years or rule is a fitting example to showcase that the TRS was deceiving the people and was blind to their suffering and hardships .
He said the Chief Minister was performing house warming ceremony of his bullet proof bungalow tomorrow when the four crore people of Telangana are hard pressed and suffering due to ban on Rs.500 and Rs.1000 notes . This is just like Roman emperor Nero singing when Rome was burning, he said .
Referring to ‘bullet proof toilets and also bed rooms’ he questioned whether the CM was scared of public fury and uproar over the misdeeds of his Government in the last 2-1/2 years. He said Chief Minister had unnecessarily demolished part of the old CM’s bungalow constructed during the Congress regime, in the name of Vastu compliance . Shabbir Ali appealed to the Governor E S L Narasimhan to abstain from attending house warming ceremony of KCR which was both un- constitutional and anti –secular and direct KCR to focus more on welfare of poor and development of the state rather than display of such lavish and luxurious living at cost of people’s money.
