Cong will look into KCR's graft if elected

TPCC Chief Capt N Uttam Kumar Reddy Addressing media today in Hyderabad

Exuding confidence that the grand alliance led by Congress will assume power in the ensuing elections, Telangana Pradesh Congress chief Captain N Uttam Kumar Reddy here on Monday said the government will inquire into all the allegations of corruption against K Chandrasekhar Rao.

Calling KCR "a cheat, a political broker and habitual liar", the former IAF pilot said that no other chief minister in this country had ever lied to the extent that KCR has.

Addressing the media, the TPCC chief said that Sonia Gandhi, as Congress president at the time of bifurcation of the united Andhra Pradesh, seeing the risk of losing power in the state, granted Telangana.

"But KCR failed to keep his major promise of making a Scheduled Caste member as the chief minister of Telangana. Since then, all he did was cheating the Telangana community," Uttam said.

Dubbing KCR's Mission Bhagiratha as "Commission Bhagiratha," Uttam alleged that KCR and his family received 6% as kickbacks in the project.

"Congress wanted to start the Kaleswaram project from Tummdihatti to use gravity to bring water. KCR redesigned it only for the sake of commission," Uttam said.

He said the Congress government will look into the blatantly corrupt practices of KCR and his son KTR immediately after coming to power.

Countering allegations by KCR that the Congress has surrendered to the dictates of TDP Chief Nara Chandrababu Naidu, Uttam wanted to know if Naidu was responsible for KCR failing to build two bedroom houses for the poor, for failing to provide tap water to every household, and for not giving 12% reservation to minorities and STs.

"But KCR shudders when he hears the name of Narendra Modi. Why does he never ask about Bayyaram steel factory and ST University and the Telangana envisaged in the bifurcation act," Uttam said.

Trashing the claim by KCR that the TRS government has solved the power crisis, he said that almost all the states in the country have surplus power thanks to former PM Manmohan Singh's efforts.

"TRS has not added a single milliwatt of electricity after assuming power," he said. He promised extension of the Rytu Bandhu cash incentive to tenant farmers and allocation of 12% of the budget for the welfare of minorities.
