The Telugu Desam Party has challenged Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar and Telangana Rashtra Samithi for an open debate on allotment of tenders for the Polavaram project.

Addressing a press conference at NTR Trust Bhavan here on Sunday, Telangana Telugu Desam Forum convenor Errabelli Dayakar Rao said that his party was ready to prove all the allegations that they levelled about the irregularities in the tender process of Polavaram project. However, he asked the Chief Minister and TRS president K Chandrasekhar to decide the time and venue to debate the same.

Reiterating that the TRS president has personally benefited out of Polavaram project by ensuring allotment of tenders to a benami company, Errabelli alleged that KCR has toned down the Telangana agitation after receiving the benefits. He asked the people to understand the nexus between Kiran Kumar Reddy and KCR and their link with the Polavaram project. He said that the TDP was ready to submit all the evidences to the Speaker if the Chief Minister also does the same.

Errabelli also criticised the statement of Union Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad seeking more time for consultation. Stating that the Congress party has been holding consultations for the last 11 years, he asked as to how much more time was need to resolve the issue. He requested the Telangana leaders to come on a common platform to achieve the statehood for the Telangana region.

Meanwhile, addressing the same press conference TDP MLA M Narasimhulu alleged that KCR has accumulated wealth of nearly Rs 50,000 Crore by using Telangana agitation as a shield. He asked the TRS president to declare his assets while disclosing his sources of income.

Narasimhulu said that KCR has amassed huge wealth through ‘benamis’ and have betrayed the Telangana agitation as it was done by Marri Chenna Reddy in 1969. He said KCR’s wealth was much more than the accumulated wealth of both Kadapa MP Jagan Mohan Reddy and Obulapuram Mining Corporation chairman Gali Janardhan Reddy. He also questioned KCR’s silence over the allegations related to allotment of tenders for the Polavaram project. (INN)
