Revanth at Medigadda

Telangana Chief Minister A Revanth Reddy on February 13, Tuseday, led all his ministers and MLAs and other senior Congress leaders to Medigadda, where some pillars of Kaleswaram lift irrigation  project’s pillars sank and shown cracks five months ago. This Kaleswaram project was built by previous BRS government under the guidance of then CM KCR.

Primarily, this visit of Cabinet ministers and MLAs of Congress is to nail former CM KCR who personally claimed credit for the construction of Kaleswaram irrigation project. This visit also came on a day when KCR held a public meeting at Nalgonda to attack Revanth’s government for its failure to protect major irrigation projects on Krishna River from taken over by the Central boards.

In fact, these two events today – CM Revanth’s tour of Medigadda and KCR’s meeting at Nalgonda – have something in common. Both the leaders are flexing their muscles to fight the next Lok Sabha elections. CM Revanth is trying to win not less than 10 out of the total 17 MPs in Telangana, while KCR is fighting to improve his party position. Holding of meeting at Nalgonda is an effort to improve BRS position in South Telangana where the party fared badly.


“KCR Ranaway from Assembly”

CM Revanth Reddy launched a scathing attack on former CM KCR for running away from the debate on the failure of Kaleswaram project in the state assembly for the last two days. “KCR is not ready to  come to the assembly and answer the charge that large scale corruption has taken place in its construction, but went to Nalgonda meeting for diverting public attention,” said the CM.

The officials of irrigation department have prepared a power point presentation which was presented by Irrigation Minsiter Uttam Kumar Reddy at Medigadda. It was stated, during the presentation that part restoration of sunken pillars of Medigadda barrage was not possible, but the whole barrage has to be rebuilt. CM Revanth Reddy took pot shots on KCR for saying that sinking of one or two pillars of Kaleswaram project was not a big issue.

“How can KCR says that collapse of two pillars of an irrigation project is a minor issue? Then, why not he come to the assembly and speak on the issue? He is running away from any debate in the House as there has been a large scale corruption in the construction of the project – around Rs 97,000 crore. In fact damage to Kaleswaram project at Medigadda and Annaram barrages have become a major  issues in the recent assembly elections.
