The TRS government, which was chanting “Bangaru Telangana” was suppressing the voice of democrats in order to see there wont be freedom of expression in the State, the TPCC said.
Speaking to the media at Gandhi Bhavan here on Wednesday, TPCC vice-president Mallu Ravi and general secretary Maheshkumar Goud alleged that the TRS government has undemocratically kept democrats and intellectuals in jail ruining democratic values and conducting dynastic rule. They said though Civil Liberties leaders Prof. Haragopal and Virasam’s Varavara Rao participated in Telangana movement vigorously, the TRS government detained them in Bhongir on the pretext that they would speak in favor of Naxalites at the meeting held in Warangal.
The TPCC leaders demanded that Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, who told people before elections that his agenda was that of Naxalites, to explain as to why he detained Prof. Haragopal and Varavara Rao. The Telangana Democratic Front organized the meeting with the intervention of High Court, they said. They further said the government was hatching conspiracy to suppress movements in the Osmania University, which played a key role in achieving Telangana State, by installing CC cameras and deploying mufti-police in the university. The government installed CC cameras worth Rs 9 crore on the University campus and using mufti police for continuous surveillance only to suppress opposition from the people.
Charging Prime Minister Narendra Modi with doing nothing to the people for the last two years, the TPCC leaders alleged that prices of essential commodities were sky-rocketing. Modi failed to fulfill the assurances he made before the elections, they alleged and said Swatcha Bharath and Jan Dhan Yojana were not new. “The schemes were introduced by the Congress party with different names. The Modi government changed their names only”, they said. Modi’s prime assurance of brining the black money back and depositing Rs 15 lakh to each family’s account was a big drama, they alleged. (NSS)
