TRS making false claims, fake promises on development: Uttam

Hyderabad,: Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) president and Nalgonda MP Uttam Kumar Reddy has accused TRS Working President & IT Minister K. Tarakarama Rao of indulging in ‘headline management’ by making false and hollow claims of development.
As part of election campaigning for municipal elections, Uttam addressed a series of meetings in Nalgonda and Kodad besides addressing media conferences and having live interaction with party workers on social media platform Facebook on Sunday. The TPCC chief alleged that KTR has failed to perform as the Minister for Municipal Administration & Urban Development. The development in the areas under municipalities and municipal corporations came to a halt ever since the TRS came to power. “The entire existing infrastructure in urban local bodies was created under previous Congress regime only. But, KTR has been making false claims of development and cheating the people with fake promises by giving statements in newspapers.
He also alleged that KTR was forcing the newspapers to publish his interviews on front pages. He said such tactics would not work in favour of TRS as people have realized that only the Congress could bring about development. Stating that the TRS Government has totally neglected the municipalities and municipal corporations by giving them least priority in the allocation and spending of funds, Uttam said many urban local bodies have no money to even bear the operational expenses. He said no funds were allocated for construction of double bed room houses for weaker sections.
Uttam Kumar Reddy promised that he would take up developmental works in all the municipalities under Nalgonda, Suryapet, Halia, Nandikonda, Nereducherla, Huzurnagar, Miryalguda and Devarkonda from his MP Funds. He said so far nearly Rs 1 crore has been given for Nalgonda Municipality. He said the previous Congress government had developed all the municipalities by allocating huge funds. He said all the municipalities were given Rs 100 crore when late S. Jaipal Reddy was the Union Minister for Urban Development in Dr. Manmohan Singh cabinet.
Uttam Kumar Reddy also slammed Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao for not clearing his stand on implementing National Population Register (NPR) in Telangana. He said many States have categorically rejected CAA, NRC and NPR. He reminded that Kerala and Punjab Assemblies have passed resolutions rejecting the CAA and NRC. However, he said KCR has been maintaining silence to support the BJP agenda. He appealed to the people, especially minorities, to teach KCR a fitting lesson through their votes by defeating TRS in municipal elections. He condemned the Chief Minister for not responding to repeated appeals by the Congress party to convene a special Assembly session to pass a resolution rejecting CAA and NRC.
