Hyderabad, December 2: Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) President Capt. N. Uttam Kumar Reddy expressed confidence that the Congress-led People’s Front will register a landslide victory in next elections.
Addressing a series of road shows and street corner meetings in Huzurnagar constituency on Sunday, Uttam Kumar Reddy said that the People’s Front, comprising of Congress, TDP, TJS and CPI, has been receiving tremendous response all across the Telangana State and its victory was inevitable. “The end of KCR’s family and dictatorial rule will happen in another 10 days. There is no doubt about it,” he said while adding that the People of Telangana would win the war against the KCR family to restore democracy in Telangana.
Uttam Kumar Reddy accused caretaker Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao of shattering the dreams of people of Telangana only for personal gains. He alleged that both KCR and KTR acted as brokers and mortgaged the interest of Telangana before BJP Government at the Centre and Prime Minister Narender Modi. “KCR never raised his voice against Modi Government which did huge injustice with Telangana by not implementing the promises made in the bifurcation Act. He always backed Modi on all his decisions. He did so only to save himself from CBI in the ESI and Sahara PF scams,” he said.
Strongly condemning KCR for his criticism on People’s Front, especially Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu, Uttam Kumar Reddy said KCR was resorting to mudslinging only to hide his failures. “Did Chandrababu Naidu stop KCR from making a Dalit CM? Did Chandrababu Naidu prevent KCR from giving 12% reservation to STs and Muslims or giving three acres of land to poor Dalits and Girijans? KCR openly cheated the people during the last four-and-a-half years and instead of being apologetic, he is trying to engage us in useless and irrelevant blame game,” he said.
Uttam Kumar Reddy said KCR has no moral right to speak anything on People’s Front. “The Congress, TDP, TJS and CPI have formed an open and legitimate pre-poll alliance. However, KCR has been maintaining an illegitimate relationship with the BJP since the last four years. While we are proud that we’ve joined hands for benefit of people of Telangana, KCR is shamelessly maintaining illicit relationship with BJP for his own benefits and to save himself from CBI and to protect his ill-gotten wealth,” he said.
The TPCC chief said that said both KCR and KTR should first speak on their ‘Promises Vs Performance’ in the last four years before making fresh promises. Not even 1% of the total promises made by KCR have been fulfilled and now he has come up with another bunch of lies to deceive common people. “KCR has already lost people’s trust and he is aware of that. Since he knew that he won’t be trusted anymore, he brought TRS manifesto just two days before the end of campaign just to cheat people for the last time. KCR might have thought people will not get time to compare the manifestoes of People’s Front and TRS and will get misled by his propaganda. However, people of Telangana, who had the capability of getting statehood, also have wisdom to elect the right government this time,” he said.
Uttam Kumar Reddy said that the Congress party has covered all segments of the society in its manifesto. “While promising a transparent, accountable and accessible government, we want assure the people of Telangana that all their needs would be taken care of. People’s Front is not a family party or individual like TRS or KCR. It is an entity representing all sections of the society and therefore, we’ve addressed the concerns of all in our manifesto,” he said.
The TPCC Chief said that the People’s Front Government would ensure proper housing for weaker sections, provide food security, jobs, social justice and ensure socio-economic and political empowerment of women. He said the next government would restore democracy and strengthen all democratic institutions in the State. Each citizen of Telangana will get his due share in the new State and a mechanism would be put in place to deal with all grievances.
Thousands of people participated in the road shows addressed by Uttam Kumar Reddy in Kandibanda, Hemlathanda,Ramapuram, Dondapadu, Gudimalkapuram, Chinthalapalem, Mellachervu and Vepalasingaram.
Earlier, he participated in the Arya Vysya Vanabhojanalu at Huzur Nagar. Speaking on the occasion, he said that the next Congress-led People’s Front Government would establish Arya Vysa Corporation. Stating that majority of Arya Vysya community which is into small trades was badly hit due to GST. He said Congress president Rahul Gandhi has already assured that if voted to power at the Centre, the GST would be completely revamped.
Uttam Kumar Reddy, while addressing the road shows, also highlighted his achievements as the MLA of Huzurnagar for the last two terms since 2009 and as Kodad MLA from 1999-2009. He said he had brought immense development during the 20 years of his political career as MLA and assured that he would try to get global recognition for Huzurnagar constituency. “When you say that you are from Huzurnagar, then the others should say ‘Ji Huzur’,” he said.
