Congress threartens mass stir on RTC, power hikes

Thu, Jun 23, 2016, 05:26 PM
Leader of Opposition in Legislative Council Mohammed Ali Shabbir has condemned the TRS Government for the proposed hike in RTC fares and power tariff.

Speaking to media persons in Hyderabad, Shabbir Ali on Thursday accused Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao of mishandling both the RTC and Energy Departments. He said instead of taking measures to improve the functioning of RTC during last two years, the KCR Government pushed the corporation into crisis and now it was threatening to close it down.

"KCR is finding over a dozen reasons to justify the proposed hike in RTC tariff. Similarly, the TRS government has failed to generate a single MW of additional power in the last two years. But now it has cleared hike in power tariff. The Congress party will launch a mass agitation against the proposed hikes," he said.

Reminding KCR of speech that he delivered at HICC on 2nd June on second anniversary of Telangana Formation Day, Deputy CLP leader Ponguleti Sudhakar Reddy said why a State, which was boasting of being revenue surplus and planning to take its annual budget to Rs. 5 lakh crore in next three years, wanted to burden the common man with hikes in RTC and power tariffs.
