PCC president Uttam Reddy has strongly condemned the TRS Government for treating ongoing agrarian crisis in the State as non-issue.
Addressing a press conference at Assembly Media Point on Friday, Uttam Reddy, along with CLP leader K. Jana Reddy, Leader of Opposition in Council Mohammed Ali Shabbir and other senior leaders, described Congress party’s ‘Chalo Assembly’ protest as a success. He reiterated that ‘Chalo Assembly’ rally was not a show of strength, but a mode of protest to expose the failure of Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao to honour the promise that he made with the farmers on the floor of the House.
Instead of admitting the failure and taking corrective measures to help the ailing farming community, the TRS Government used force to foil the ‘Chalo Assembly’ rally. He said over 50,000 farmers and Congress workers from across the Telangana State were arrested by the police. While several leaders and workers were taking into preventive custody two days ago, farmers were chased and arrested from their fields. He warned the police officials against acting like TRS activists.
