Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) President N. Uttam Kumar Reddy reiterated that the proposed Third Front by Chief Minister and TRS chief K. Chandrashekhar Rao would remain a non-starter or at least irrelevant as TRS was not going to win any seats in next election.
Addressing a press conference in Delhi on Monday, Uttam Kumar Reddy said KCR has been chanting the ‘Third Front’ mantra to divert people’s attention from the failures of his government in Telangana State. He said KCR was afraid of facing people as his government did not nothing for any section of the society during the last four years. Instead of being accountable, he said KCR has initiated the talk of forming ‘Third Front’. He said KCR’s visit to Kolkata and his meeting with West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee was a political gimmick to escape from the wrath of common people.
Uttam Kumar Reddy said KCR has failed to fulfill\ a single major electoral promise that he made with the people. Therefore, he said that the Chief Minister was running the budget session as a formality and visiting Kolkata while the session was one. He said that KCR has hurt the sanctity of legislature and illegally suspended all members of Congress party for the entire and expelled two MLAs in an undemocratic manner. He said that the Congress party would approach the people and expose all failures of TRS Government.
Meanwhile, Madiga Reservation Porata Samithi (MRPS) founder Manda Krishna Madiga visited the AICC Headquarters on Monday and met AICC Secretary R.C. Khuntia, Uttam Kumar Reddy, ex-PCC President V. Hanumantha Rao, expelled MLA A. Sampath Kumar and other leaders. Speaking to media persons later, Khuntia said that the Congress party was serious on the issue of SC categorisation. He also demanded CBI probe into the attack on MRPS chief.
Khuntia asked KCR to clarify his stand on BJP Government. He said KCR should make it clear whether he was against the NDA or part of it. He advised KCR’s proposed Third Front was only aimed at benefitting Modi Government in next elections. He advised KCR to first fulfill all the promises that he made with the people of Telangana before thinking about other countrymen.
Meanwhile, Sampath Kumar has expressed confidence that the expelled MLAs would get justice from the court. (NSS)
