Rama Krishna Sangem
BRS president and former CM K Chandrasekhar Rao has expressed confidence that his party would bounce back to power with double speed. KCR who lost power in Telangana assembly elections in November came out for the first time to address a public rally at Nalgonda on February 13, Tuesday. The theme of the meeting is to protect Krishna river waters for the southern Telangana districts of Nalgonda, Mahabubnagar and Khamam.
This way, KCR not made his public appearance on a political issue, but also launched his campaign for the coming Lok Sabha elections which are crucial for his BRS. Flanked by several senior party leaders, KCR who underwent a hop surgery two months back appeared stable and comfortable in addressing public rallies. So, we can expect many more public meeting from him in the days to come.
The trigger pout to the meting was the alleged failure of Revanth Reddy led Congress government in shielding major irrigation projects on River Krishna to the Centre. This will cause loss to the interests of Telangana and injustice to people of Nalgonda and other districts which depend on its waters for irrigation. KCR is also replying to the attack of Congress government for collapse of some pillars at Medigadda, on Kaleswaram lift project in northern Telangana.
“I will not rest from fighting for people”
KCR in his speech made it clear that he would not rest from fighting for the interests of people of Telangana. “I will fight like a tiger for the interests of Telangana. KCR launched a strong attack on the Congress government including CM Revanth Reddy and his ministers for terming Kaleswaram project on River Godavari on the grounds that some pillars of a barrage at Medigadda sank.
KCR said today’s meeting at Nalgonda is not a political meeting but a rally as part of the struggle to protect the interests of Telangana. “We have achieved Telangana state after I fought risking my life. Now, we shall fight for protecting our water rights with the same spirit. Present CM or any of his ministers should have consulted me or others in our party on how to fight for protecting the projects on River Krishna,” said KCR.
