Hyderabad, September 22: Telangana Pradesh Congress commitee (TPCC) secretary Bandulal said that the TRS was exploiting the beneficiaries of various schemes like Aasra Pension, Kalyana Laxmi or Rythu Bandu of the State Government and treating them as its vote bank. He said that the TRS Government was covering up its major failures by giving hype to a few programmes which were already in implementation (in different forms and names) even before TRS came to power in 2014.
Further, he alleged that the TRS leaders were using their ill-gotten money to lure the voters in every election. Citing an instance, he alleged that nearly Rs. 100 crore were spent by TRS to win Huzurnagar by-elections. He said that to get mentally prepared to beat such unethical tactics of TRS in next elections.
The TPCC secretry also announced that the Congress party would wage a legal battle to get land to build party offices in all districts. He said that the State Government had issued orders to provide one acre land to establish offices of political parties in the districts. However, he said, so far, land has been allotted only for TRS while the applications from other parties have been kept pending. He said that the Congress party would approach the court against this injustice and partisan behaviour.
Bandulal said that the administration was in utter chaos in the districts. He said that the TRS Govt has carved out 33 districts out of 10 districts that existed at the time of formation of Telangana. He said that the old districts were divided without any rationalisation or logic. Consequently, he said that the District Administration was badly affected in the majority of newly created districts due to shortage of infrastructure, manpower and other resources.
The TPCC Secretary also hinted that the Congress party would come up with an attractive package for all the members as part of membership drive to be launched next month.
