Ridiculing Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy’s assertion that Congress party would retain power in the State and at the Centre in the next general elections, senior BJP leader Dr K. Lakshman has said the former was day-dreaming about his party’s return to power.
Speaking to mediapersons here on Monday, Dr Lakshman said the Chief Minister, who had totally forgotten about welfare of the people, spent his two years in office in cajoling his disgruntled party leaders and cabinet colleagues. Union minister S. Jaipal Reddy’s abstention from the Metro Rail function in the city the other day clearly mirrored the disunity among the Congress leaders in the State, he added.
Dr Lakshman said the Chief Minister, who had said that the people have to bear the burden of power charge hike, would be taught a fitting lesson by the irate people in the next elections. The Chief Minister, who had taken up Indiramma Baata for sake of publicity, would return home definitely due to people’s anger, he added. (NSS)
