Telangana TDP Forum convenor Errabelli Dayakar Rao has accused Panchayat Raj Minister K Jana Reddy of betraying Telangana.
Talking to media persons at Telugu Desam Legislature Party here on Monday, Errabelli said that Jana Reddy betrayed the Telangana exactly the way 1969 movement for statehood was betrayed by Marri Chenna Reddy. He criticised Jana Reddy’s statement asking the Telangana employees to withdraw the strike. He said it was Jana Reddy who led a group of Ministers, MLAs, MPs which openly supported the general strike. He sought to know the reasons that led Jana Reddy to change his stand asking the employees to withdraw the strike.
Errabelli also denied the allegations that the TDP had a secret pact with the Congress in the Banswada bye-elections. He said that the TDP leaders from the region have been giving boycott call for the by-elections and that’s why the party did not field any candidate in the by-polls.
The T-TDP Forum convenor was highly critical of Telangana Political Joint Action Committee. He said that the TP-JAC is being operated out of Telangana Bhavan and is no more a representative body of all pro-Telangana groups. He asked the Telangana employees to come out of the clutches of Telangana Rashtra Samithi K Chandrasekhar Rao who is misusing the agitation to his own benefits.
Errabelli said that KCR has been damaging the Telangana agitation and that’s why people have started losing faith on TRS and KCR. He said despite Telangana wave, the Congress candidate securing over 30,000 votes in Banswada by-elections was an indication that the people have started losing faith on TRS.
The TDP leader also informed that it would organise dharnas at all district collectorate in the region on October 18. However, the programme would be held on October 19 in Nizamabad and Adilabad as the police did not give permission in view of BJP leader LK Advani’s rath yatra in those districts.
TDP MLAs L Ramana and Jaipal Yadav were also present during the press conference. (INN)
