TRS govt corrupt in India: TPCC Chief

TRS govt corrupt in India: TPCC Chief

Hyderabad, May 19 (UNI) Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) president Capt N Uttam Kumar Reddy on Saturday evening alleged that the TRS Government has emerged as the most corrupt regime in the country.

Addressing a massive public meeting at Wardhannapet near here as part of Congress Praja Chaitanya Bus Yatra, Uttam said that CMS-India Corruption Study 2018 has exposed that Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao's administration is the second most corrupt among 29 States in the country.

Quoting excerpts of the reports published by some leading newspapers on Saturday, he said almost 73 per cent of households claimed they had bribed officials for availing public services.

The TPCC Chief said transport, police, housing, land records, health and hospital services have been classified as the most corrupted wings.

He said people were forced to pay bribe to get or renew a driving license, register a complaint, register an FIR, getting PDS ration card, admitting as inpatients, school admissions or even correct inflated bills.

The Telangana Chief Minister has turned Telangana into the most corrupted State in the country," he alleged.

Uttam also alleged that Mission Bhagiratha or Mission Kakatiya and other schemes were launched only to benefit the contractors and get commissions. "KCR Government implemented projects where his family members and associates got commissions.

"At the time of formation of Telangana, we inherited debts of nearly Rs 69,000 crore. But in just four years, State's debts increased to over Rs 2 lakh crore. These loans were taken to make payments to contractors who in turn gave commission to KCR and his family members," he alleged adding that now the future generations of Telangana would have to clear the debts taken by KCR regime.

The TPCC chief slammed the KCR Government for its failure to supply drinking water to all households in Wardhannapet and other areas.

He reminded that KCR had promised that he would not seek votes if his government failed to supply tap water to all houses. He asked whether KCR would honour his words.

He also explained various schemes that the Congress party plans to implement in Telangana after winning next elections.

The TPCC Chief asked the party workers to focus on strengthening the organisation.

He asked them to form a 14-member booth level committee and appoint a Social Media Coordinator for every booth.

Since mainstream media is not giving deserved coverage to Congress activities, he said social media should be fully explored to reach out to the people.

He said that the Congress party was appointed Social Media coordinators in over 30,000 polling booths across Telangana State.

The meeting was also addressed by senior leaders including TPCC Working President Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka.

Wardhannapet's meeting also marked the end of third phase of Congress Praja Chaitanya Bus Yatra. So far, the TPCC Chief has covered as many as 39 Assembly constituencies as part of bus yatra. The next phase of bus yatra will commence soon.
