Addressing a media conference at Gandhi Bhavan this afternoon in the backdrop of defection of senior congress MLA Vanama Venkateswara Rao the former leader of opposition in Telangana council said KCR had lured congress MLAs to TRS with a bribe of Rs. 25 crores each .” But congress votes in Khammam are secure and even if KCR succeeds in luring MLAs defect, he or TRS will routed in Lok sabha polls “ he said .
He said KCR horse trading of Congress MLAs ahead of MLC elections in Telangana had shocked the nation and was popularly termed as a greatest setback to democracy .
Even with 15 MPs in 2014 TRS had utterly failed to procure benefits to people of Telangana from Modi Government despite being overtly friendly with BJP at the centre . “ No national status to Kaleshwaram project, no 12% quota for Muslims, & 10% to ST, No Turmeric board ( promised by Kavita) , No Bayyaram steel plant , revival of Nizam sugar factory or NTPC power project. KCR and TRS failed Telangana people in spite of match fixing deal with Modi and BJP”, he said .
