Congress senior leader Marri Sashidhar Reddy has strongly condemned Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao for criticising courts who stalled some projects.
Speaking to media persons on Friday, Sashidhar Reddy asked whether the Indian Constitution and laws do not apply to Telangana. He alleged that KCR has no respect for the law and gets angry when courts stop his anti-constitutional decisions. He said that the National Green Tribunal has ordered interim stay on construction of Kaleshwaram Project as the Telangana Government got no environmental or forest clearances. He said instead of following the law, KCR is challenging the legal decisions and targeting those who are approaching the courts.
Sashidhar Reddy alleged that the TRS Government re-designed Kaleshwaram project only to escalate the cost and benefit the contractors. He said that the TRS Government did not even seek National Status for the project as it knew that the Central agencies would not approve faulty designs would cause huge losses to the State’s exchequer. He said that the State Government did not even conduct the public hearing on Kaleshwaram project in a fair manner. He said that Telangana, like all other States, is bound to execute projects under the purview of existing laws. (INN)
