CM Revanth: “We’ll be in power for next 10 years”

Chief Minister Revanth Reddy has claimed that Congress party will be in power in Telangana for next 10 years.  He made this comment as part of his speech in the assembly on December 16, Saturday. He was speaking on a motion thanking the Governor for her address to the House on Friday. This is his first full scale speech in the assembly after Congress came to power in November 30 elections.

Revanth who spoke for more than an hour amidst interventions from BRS senior leader KT Rama Rao and others, said that his government would try to undo the undemocratic and authoritarian policies of previous KCR government in the last one decade. “You have ruled for 10 years, and we will be here for another 10 years. Let’s see how we will implement our election promise of six guarantees to people,” said Revanth.

The new CM promised to bring in a democratic atmosphere in Telangana where basic rights like holding protests too were denied. “We will give freedom to people to protest and freely express their views. We will implement social justice and do justice to all those who fought for Telangana statehood.  We have broken the iron fencing around Pragathi Bhavan where former CM used to stay,” said Revanth.

Revanth also mentioned about restoration of Dharna Chowk at Lower Tank Bund, in Hyderabad where people can sit and protest peacefully. He recalled how former CM KCR denied protests for the initial few years, till a court order restored the facility. “You have refused to meet many who fought for the cause of people of Telangana – like late Gaddar, Prof Kodandram and poet Ande Shree,” said Revanth.


It’s Revanth Vs KTR

Most of the debate was confined to speech of the CM and repeated interventions from KTR.  KTR, while offering full support to the good policies of the government made it clear that his party would definitely fight for the cause of peopole. KTR strongly opposed to CM Revanth’s repeated claims that he and some others in BRS were from “management quota”. “In fact, you have got CM post through management quota by convincing Delhi leaders,” said KTR.

This full scale debate in the assembly indicated many things. First, Speaker Prasad Kumar appeared to be learning tricks of the trade – of his job – and it may not take longer for him to master the task. Second, Revanth will be aggressive in the House in the coming days and KTR would be the face of the opposition BRS. The assembly will be seeing more heated debates  in the run up to coming Lok Sabha elections.
