Congress slams TRS govt for not having single woman in cabinet

Press Trust of India  |  Hyderabad 

The government in has ignored empowerment of women by not inducting even a single woman in the cabinet, state president N Uttam Kumar Reddy alleged here today.

He was speaking at the state office here after releasing a poster on women empowerment to mark the 100th birth anniversary of former Prime Minister

Reddy said the state cabinet not having a single woman was an insult to the women of the state. "This is a classic example of how serious the government is about the women empowerment," he said.

Alleging that the condition of civic amenities in had gone from bad to worse after recent heavy rains, Reddy said the Municipal Administration Minister went on a US tour instead of restoring normalcy.

"There is no match between K T Rama Rao's tall claims of making a global city and actual condition of roads, drainage and other amenities," he said.

Stating that would protest against the rule, Reddy said a public meeting would be held on October 19 in Hyderabad, followed by a farmers' rally on October 20. AICC General Secretary Digvijaya Singh would attend the meetings.
