TDP, too, warns of stir against RTC & power hikes

Thu, Jun 23, 2016, 05:58 PM
The Telangana TDP on Thursday threatened agitation if the TRS government went ahead with its proposed hike in power tariff and RTC fares.

Speaking to the media, State TDP chief L. Ramana questioned the government about the need to increase power tariff as well as RTC bus charges when the State had surplus funds and it was a rich State.

Demanding that the government withdraw any move to hike charges, Ramana said the KCR government was now trying to put the burden on the people. If power tarrif and RTC fares were increased, his party would launch an agitation, he warned.

Ramana alleged that KCR, who came to power by promising water, funds and employment, was now busy in providing water and funds to his farmhouse and jobs to TRS workers.

He accused KCR of creating new problems instead of resolving the existing ones. “Now time has come to revolt against the government as people are fed up with two-year rule of the TRS government which failed to even to control price hike of essential commodities," he said.

Another TDP leader Ravula Chandrasekhar Reddy feared that the proposed move of the government would have cascading impact on essential commodities.

Questioning the government about the need to hike charges when the State had surplus funds, Ravula alleged KCR was spending of crores of rupees for his official residence. Re-building of newly created State did not mean construction of new buildings by demolishing old ones, he added.

Ravula alleged that KCR was building his official residence behind the present camp office. He was building his camp offices for himself, the Chief Secretary and the DGP in 20 acres of government land by spending crores of rupees of public money.

If the government failed to withdraw its proposed hike move, an agitation would be launched, the TDP senior leader warned.
