Hyderabad:Bharatiya Janata Party Telangana unit president and Karimnagar MP Bandi Sanjay Kumar demanded an unconditional apology from chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao for his “blatant lies” on Bayyaram steel plant in Khammam district.
“For the last few years, KCR and his Bharat Rashtra Samithi leaders have been slinging mud at the Narendra Modi government at the Centre alleging that it had not been granting approval for setting up of steel plant at Bayyaram.
But a latest statement from the Centre clearly said the state government had not at all submitted any detailed project report on the steel plant,” Sanjay pointed out, while speaking to reporters after calling on senior BJP leader Bhanuprakash, who was injured in a recent police assault and undergoing treatment at Global Hospitals, Hyderabad.
He said the Centre had said there had been no response from the state government for the last three years, for the communication seeking a DPR on the Bayyaram steel plant.
“Now, KCR should tender an unconditional apology to the people for lying on the steel plant all these days,” he said.
Sanjay alleged that the police had made a brutal assault on the BJP and Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha activists who were fighting for justice to the candidates appearing for Sub-Inspector and constable recruitment.
“There were several goofs-up in the question papers. Instead of rectifying the mistakes, the government is instigating the police to attack those who question the mistakes,” he alleged.
Accusing KCR and his party leaders of indulging in cheap politics and trying to divert the attention of the people from the debate on misrule, Sanjay said the state government had not learnt any lesson even after receiving a setback in the high court in its attempt to blame Governor Tamilisai.
“The chief minister, who has gone to the court questioning the Governor for not approving the file on the state budget for the last three days, has not uttered a word when the assembly speaker had kept pending the file on defection of MLAs,” he said.
The BJP state president demanded that the KCR government should come for an open debate on the non-fulfilment of his promises like filling up of 1.91 lakh government jobs, completion of double bedroom houses, crop loan waiver etc.
Sanjay said it was unfortunate that a sarpanch and her husband attempted suicide at Nizamabad collectorate for not getting their bills cleared for a long time.
“It is a clear indication that KCR is harassing the sarpanches by denying them funds, sanctioned by the Centre,” he regretted.
