Enter into campaign mode, expose TRS govt's 'failures': Uttam


Press Trust of India Hyderabad
Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) President N Uttam Kumar Reddy today advised party workers to enter into campaign mode for next elections and expose the "failures" of the ruling TRS government in the state and BJP government at the Centre.
Addressing a meeting here, Reddy said the Congress party was organisationally very strong across Telangana.
He said so far, more than one lakh Congress workers have registered themselves with 'Shakti' programme and the number is likely to increase by three-four folds.
Shakti programme is an initiative conceived by Congress President Rahul Gandhi to strengthen the organisation at grassroot level.
Stating that the party would intensify Shakti enrolments further, he advised the Congress workers to enter the campaign mode and said the "failures" of TRS government in Telangana and BJP government at the Centre should be explained to the people.
"With his attractive talk and lucrative promises, KCR (Chief Minister and TRS chief K Chandrasekhar Rao) has cheated all sections of the society.
Both Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Rao did nothing for Hyderabad in the last four years. TRS government even failed to maintain the infrastructure which was created by previous Congress regime," a party release quoted Reddy as saying.
Reddy alleged that KCR's only focus was on accumulation of illegal wealth and welfare of his family.
"Except for four members of KCR family, no one gained from the formation of Telangana," he said.
He accused the TRS government of executing only those works from where it could get 'commissions' from contractors.
Reddy exuded confidence that the Congress party was all set to win the next elections, whenever they were held.
He claimed that all recent surveys have clearly indicated a landslide victory for the Congress.
At another event, a Round Table Conference on 'Kaleshwaram Project', he said the entire project was wrapped in several "mysteries" which include viability, exact project cost, operational cost, and the basis on which "short-term-high-cost" bank loans of thousands of crores were taken.
Reddy alleged that the "secrecy being maintained around various aspects of the project clearly point towards a major scam which needs to be exposed.
