Calling the State BJP president Bandi Sanjay’s Praja Sangrama Yatra a deception , TRS Working President KTR said that the BJP state president does not have the right to step in Palamuru.
Before commencing his yatra, Bandi Sanjay should tender an apology to Palamuru and the entire Telangana people for the betrayal,
injustice and negligence done by the BJP party to the State, the TRS working president demanded.
In an open letter to the State BJP president, he said that the fields in Palamuru, which were once known for acute drought, have now turned into fertile lands.
River Krishna was the lifeline of Palamuru. The BJP-led Government had set up the River Krishna Management Board but there was no development in addressing the river water sharing disputes. This was pushing the district’s future in doubt, he lashed.
Telangana has been demanding for national status for Palamuru Ranga Reddy Lift Irrigation Scheme and Bandi Sanjay should explain the Centre’s response to the Palamuru people, he demanded.
“Bandi Sanjay should step into Palamuru only after explaining to Telangana people as to why the Upper Bhadra project in neighboring Karnataka is accorded national status and why Telangana is discriminated against,” said KTR.
People have been appealing for a new railway line to Palamuru via Nagarkurnool but all their pleas were completely ignored by the BJP and its leaders and government, he said.
KTR demanded that Bandi Sanjay should let people know how much funds he has donated to temples in Telangana. KTR made this statement as Bandi Sanjay started his pada Yatra after offering prayers at Adishakti Peetham of Jogulamba Gadwal. The BJP which does politics in the name of God Sri Rama should tell the people of Telangana about how much they have donated to the Sri Rama temple in Bhadradri. He questioned if BJP had donated even a single rupee to the Yadadri temple.
BJP is used to playing politics in the name of God and religion. Bandi Sanjay should start his pada Yatra after responding to the plight of Telangana farmers, said KTR. The BJP leaders have misled the farmers of Telangana by encouraging them to cultivate paddy with the false promise of procurement of the crop by the central government. But, they changed their words and made the farming community suffer. Name your Yatra ‘Rythu Dagaa Yatra’ or ‘Rythu Dokhaa Yatra’ said KTR.
KTR asked Bandi Sanjay to apologize to the people for the BJP’s incompetent governance.
TRS Working President stated that the BJP has betrayed the people of Telangana by snatching seven mandals at the time of the state formation. He also asked Bandi Sanjay to talk about the unfulfilled promises of the BJP and why they did not deliver what was promised to Telangana under the AP Reorganization Act.
No pada yatra can compensate for the betrayals done by BJP to Telangana. What was the point of doing pada yatra when the BJP only spits venom on the people of Telangana, KTR asked.
