TPCC Chief Spokesperson Dr. Sravan Dasoju has accused the TRS Government of misusing official machinery for the training camp of party corporators.
In a media statement, Sravan strongly condemned Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao for organising the TRS corporators’ training camp at the cost of State’s exchequer. He asked the government to furnish the details of expenditure being incurred on organising three-day training camp in a private resort. “Training new legislators or corporators is not a new practice. If KCR was serious then he should have conducted the training camp for corporators belonging to all political parties. What sin the corporators of other parties have committed that they were deprived of this training?” he asked.
Sravan accused KCR of making a bid to turn GHMC into TRS Bhavan. “The Chief Minister is trying to give an impression that no other party, except TRS, exists in the State. He must treat all corporators equally if he truly believes in democracy and participative development,” he said.
The Congress leader also slammed the senior officials for attending the training camp. “The behaviour of IAS officials is highly condemnable. They must not get inclined towards the ruling party for whatever be the reason. They owe an explanation on the grounds on which they took part in the training camp of TRS corporators,” he said. He asked whether GHMC Commissioner Dr. Janardhan Reddy, HMWSSB MD Dana Kishore, Hyderabad Police Commissioner M. Mahender Reddy and other senior officials will attend a similar training camp if conducted by Congress or other opposition parties.
Sravan asked senior officials to do a serious introspection on their behaviour. He said All India Service officials are public servants and not the “servants of ruling party”. They enjoy a high status in the society and they should not stoop down to the level of bowing down before the leaders of a ruling party. “Either they should restrain from attending political meetings or resign from their posts to officially join the TRS,” he said.
