KTR demands public apology from PM Modi for dishonouring promises

Demanding that Prime Minister Modi owed an apology for failing to deliver his promises, the BRS working president and IT minister KT Rama Rao resented the overhauling workshop at Kazipet. He ridiculed the BJP government for deciding to set up a wagon overhauling workshop instead of a railway coach factory as demanded by the people of Warangal for over four decades. Mr Rama Rao was taking part in a function where he distributed land right pattas to podu farmers in Mahabubabad district, a predominantly tribal population district.

KTR gave away pattas to 24,181 farmers distributing 67,730 acres of land in the Mahabubabad district. “With the spirit of ‘Jal, Jungle and Zameen’ movement launched by tribal icon Kumuram Bheem, the BRS government is distributing land rights to the tribals ending decades-long problems. Mr Rama Rao laid the foundation stone for the development works worth Rs. 50 crore in Mahabubabad town.

Taking on the BJP regime at Centre, he said the state government has allocated 360 acres of land in Mulugu district for the proposed Tribal University, but the Centre kept it pending. Similarly, the proposed steel plant at Bayyaram did not see the light as the Centre backed out on it. Mr Rama Rao urged people not to believe in Congress too. They failed to do justice to people during their rule. Now they are coming to people promising heaven and earth only for their political mileage.

“You have seen the ruling of both BJP and Congress parties. You also saw the ruling of BRS party. You judge better which party benefitted you with many welfare schemes and development of education and health and other sectors. I am thoroughly convinced that BRS is going to come to power again under the able leadership of chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao,” the minister said.
