Hyderabad, Feb.8 (NSS): The TDP senior leader and former minister, Mr T. Devender Goud, has said that after the Praja Rajyam party, it would be the turn of the Telangana Rashtra Samithi to merge with the Congress party.
Talking to the media here on Tuesday, Mr Goud said the TRS and Congress were working with the common agenda of weakening the TDP and it would be very soon that the TRS would merge with the Congress party. He said that though the two parties were presently working separately, they both had common agenda and have been working together with a common purpose, he alleged. He also reminded that the TRS chief, Mr K. Chandrasekhara Rao, has openly said earlier that it was his aim to strengthen the Congress party.
Mr Goud said that the remarks of the Congress senior leader, Dr K Keshava Rao, also point out at the imminent merger of TRS with the Congress. It may be recalled that Dr Kesava Rao had said that the TRS also would merge in the Congress party.
Mr Goud said that the Congress party was afraid of the TDP and was working with the sole intention of weakening it. He said it was mysterious on the part of the TRS chief that he was now talking about State Re-organization instead of Telangana. He said that Mr KCR was talking about power sharing instead of achieving Telangana.
Mr Goud and his party colleague, Mr Kadiam Srihari, have demanded that the Congress leaders, who pocketed crores of rupees in the name of projects, should complete them at least now. He said that his party would not keep quiet if the Congress got the Polavaram project declared as a national project and washed off its responsibility. He also demanded that Pranahita-Chevella project should be declared as a national project even before Polavaram. He said that it was shameful that even DPR was not established though foundation stone was laid for the project years ago.
Mr Srihari said that the TDP would launch a large scale agitation for national status for the Pranahita project. He said that how to bring pressure on the Congress-led UPA government about the project would be decided after a discussion in the party. He has alleged that the Congress leaders had no sincerity in the construction of projects. (NSS)
