The Kaleshwaram project is the lifeblood of Telangana- the government boasts. But, with the recent flood, the opposition parties say that it has become clear that it is all just talk. It is true that the pump houses have sunk. It is true that hundreds of crores have been lost. The opposition leaders tried hard to visit the project to inform the people about the truth. But, the police obstructed them. TJS president Kodandaram is one among the many. Recently, he once again raised questions about the shortcomings of Kaleshwaram.
Even though the engineering officials said that the Kaleshwaram project was not viable, KCR was accused of misusing public funds by spending lakhs of crores. He said that the project was sunk by ignoring the words of experts and officials. Lakh crores of irrigation were done. A spiritual gathering of Telangana activists was held in Hanmakonda. Kodandaram, who participated in it, said, “It is not only the rulers but the regime that needs to change.”
Kodandaram made it clear that this predatory and tyrannical government should be overthrown. He said that all those who agitated for Telangana have become traitors in the eyes of CM KCR. He said that Poor and middle-class people send their children to welfare hostels to study, but instead they are ending up seeing their children suffering from food poisoning. Education, medical and agricultural sectors were discussed in this meeting.
KCR’s elder brother’s daughter Ramya Rao participated in the same program. She said that Telangana was not achieved by one person and we are ready to follow those who are fighting for their aspirations just like the movement did. Born in a Kalvakuntla family, she said that its very sad for hear the cries and sufferings of the people of the state. She said that many people are cursing the Kalvakuntla clan under KCR’s rule, “they should only curse the KCR family and nobody should curse the Kalvakuntla family,” she added.
