Everything is not OK in TRS: Narsimha Reddy, Rajaiah revolt
Hyderabad: The differences in TRS are being exposed gradually. Recently, Health Minister, Mr. E. Rajender and MLA, Mr. R. Bal Kishan had made statements which created turmoil in the political circles.
In the recent expansion of TS Cabinet, former Home Minister and Senior TRS leader, Mr. N. Narasimha Reddy did not get ministerial berth.
Talking to newsmen, in the lobby of Assembly yesterday, Mr. Narasimha Reddy told that Mr. KCR had promised him to offer ministerial berth but he deviated from his promise. He also told that he was interested in getting Assembly ticket but Mr. KCR prevented him from contesting elections and said that he will be included in the ministry.
Mr. KCR had also promised to nominate Mr. Narsimha Reddy’s son-in-law to TS Legislative Council but he forgot this promise also. Now, Mr. KCR is offering Mr. Narasimha Reddy to accept the chairmanship of TSRTC which is not acceptable to Mr. Reddy. He told that there is no benefit in this position. He also told that KCR is the head of TRS family and we are all owners of this house. The tenants stay in the house for a fixed period and vacate it after some time but permanent members and owners of the house don’t do this.
Meanwhile, former Dy. CM of TS, Dr. Rajaiah also expressed his displeasure for not including any member of Madiga Community in ministry.
According to him, Madigas constitute 11-12% in the total population of Telangana but this community is not represented in the ministry. He also mentioned that in Telangana, Madigas are in large numbers whereas in AP, a sizable population of Malas exists. No one raised any voice for the inclusion of a member from Madiga community in the ministry. If any voice is raised, it is labeled as political.
On the very first day of the Assembly session, the displeasure of senior TRS leaders like Mr. Narasimha Reddy and Rajaiah indicates that everything is not OK in TRS. It is reported that KCR has entrusted the responsibility of pacifying such leaders to some ministers.
