Hyderabad: Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) Chairman Mr N Uttam Kumar Reddy said caretaker Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao’s family had attacked Dalits directly. Mr Reddy made the comments at Gandhi Bhavan on Monday during a meeting held to welcome former Maoist Bheem Bharat into the Congress.
Addressing the gathering, Mr Reddy said, “I have seen many chief ministers in my life but no one acted like a dictator as Mr Rao did. Not even one Dalit minister is seen in the cabinet of ministers.”
He added, “The sand mafia is working as per the directions of KCR’s family. During illegal transportation, one tribal was killed by a truck. This happened as per the instructions of his son and caretaker minister K.T. Rama Rao in Sirisilla constituency. The police have given third degree to the tribals for protesting against them. The tribals were stripped and tortured with electric shock. Doctors also were sacred of treating them. Meera Kumar, who came from Delhi, burst into tears on seeing their situation. The police also warned the women saying that they would be booked in brothel cases. Though all this happened, no case has been booked against the police or the minister.”
He said, “SC and STs should question KCR for not appointing a Dalit as Chief Minister, as per his promise. KCR has not left the farmers either. The credit of handling farmers with manacles also goes to KCR. All the soldiers of the party should gear up, as the election notification will be coming on October 2 and the elections on November 1.”
