BRS elected representatives’ protests ‘protocol violations’ during CM’s visit to Ramadugu mandal
KARIMNAGAR: In a shocking development, the ruling party leaders have raised a banner of revolt against the Telangana state government for the violation of protocols during the visit of Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao to inspect the crop damages following the unseasonal rains and hailstorm in Ramadugu mandal in Choppadandi assembly segment on Thursday.
The ruling party MPP from Ramadugu mandal and a Dalit leader Koregeti Kavitha have expressed their ire against the authorities for violating the protocol norms. She alleged that the police had obstructed her participation in the Chief Minister’s programme in her own mandal even as ruling party MLC K Kavitha talks about launching agitations for women’s reservation bill.
Is it what the women’s reservation bill is aimed at?, the MPP questioned. “I had become MPP because of the women’s reservations provided in local bodies. But, myself and several village sarpanches were denied of participation in the Chief Minister’s programme, who came to assess the crop damages in some villages in the mandal”, she stated.
Even as the Chief Minister addressed a press conference in Rythu Vedika in Ramadugu mandal, I was denied entry into the premises to least say ‘Namaskar’, he charged. She said that she was humiliated by the police authorities for being elected as a women’s representative.
In another incident, the ruling party upa-sarpanch from Gundi village of Ramadugu mandal expressed his anger for not allowing him to meet the Chief Minister by giving the pass. He said that the district authorities had visited his fields and said that the Chief Minister would inspect his fields and collect all the documents such as passbooks, Aaadhar card etc.
Ironically, the Chief Minister did not visit the fields of the ruling party upa-sarpanch nor allowed him to visit his fields by deploying a huge police contingent. Through social media, he flayed the authorities for not even allowing him to provide fodder and water to the dairy animals in his cattle shed in the fields. “Is this the way of treating the ruling party leaders by the government and harassing them by deploying the police”, he asked.
