HYDERABAD: A day after Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao’s blistering attack on Congress, a high-decibel political war broke out between leaders of Congress and TRS on Thursday.While terming allegations made by CM that Congress leaders were filing cases in courts to stall regularisation of services of outsourcing employees and construction of irrigation projects as blatant lies, Congress seniors said CM was telling big lies targeting Congress only to cover up his government’s failures.
“None of our party workers have filed any cases in High Court objecting to absorption of contract employees in power sector in the government. CM is casting aspersions on us only to divert people’s attention from his inefficiency. In fact even petition against dependent jobs’ scheme for Singareni employees was also filed by a member of Telangana Jagruthi founded by TRS MP K Kavitha and not by any Congress worker,” TPCC chief N Uttam Kumar Reddy, leader of opposition K Jana Reddy and Congress senior Ponnala Lakshmaiah, said.
Taking strong exception to the language used by CM against Congress leaders, Uttam, Jana Reddy, DK Aruna, Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka and T Jeevan Reddy said, “KCR and his family members are now enjoying power only because of selfless act of Congress according statehood to TS. Forgetting this basic issue, KCR is using unparliamentary language against Congress.”
Hitting back at Congress, finance minister E Rajender and MP Balka Suman said, “Telangana State is not the result of anybody’s benevolent act. TRS achieved it by undertaking steady fight with the Centre.”
Later, TRS MP Kavitha rejected allegations made by Jana Reddy and Uttam, saying that the person, named Satish, who had filed a petition was not at all member of Telangana Jagruthi.
