TPCC warns stir over Singareni scam

Hyderabad: Demanding CBI inquiry into the Singareni scam, the Telangana Congress party has warned the State government that it would launch agitation if it fails to act.
Speaking to the media at Gandhi Bhavan along with Premsagar Rao, R Kantharao, Kathi Venkataswamy and others on Thursday, TPCC working president Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka alleged that Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, who assured the people that he would reopen the Nizam Sugars within 100 days during Telangana movement, was maintaining silence on Sirpur Kagaz Nagar and Nizam Sugars issues. The government was not even responding to the agitation of sugarcane farmers since last year. The Chief Minister was not caring to fulfill his own assurances made during the Assembly elections, he alleged.
Moreover, the TRS affiliated Unions were resorting to attacks on the people who questioned them, he alleged. He said one Srinivas, who was being beaten up by the TRS affiliated Union activists for questioning them, was undergoing treatment and his condition was causing anxiety. He also alleged that one Errolla Naresh committed suicide by setting himself ablaze, he alleged. He said the people were demanding the government for jobs to the dependent family members. The situation in Singareni has turned dangerous to the workers, he said and demanded that the government regularize the services of contract employees immediately and take back the dismissed employees.
Demanding the State government to open new coal mines and give jobs to youth, Bhatti alleged that the government has failed to console three bereaved families, who died on April 16, 2016. He also alleged that the TRS government filled its affiliated Singareni Union “Telangana Boggu Gani Karmikula Sangam” (TGBKS) with persons indulged in various scams. The TGBKS leaders were resorting to attacks on the workers, who questioned the management.
Finding fault with the State government for not taking any action with regard to Singareni Clerical Grade entrance examination, Bhatti demanded that the government order a CBI inquiry into the EAMCET-II paper leakage and Singareni Clerical Grade Entrance Examination paper leakage issues. Premsagar Rao demanded the Chief Minister to not to allow open cast mining and fulfill the assurance given during the elections to dig underground mining. (NSS)
