KARIMNAGAR: Former Minister and BJP leader Etala Rajender has launched a scathing attack against former Minister and BJP rebel M Narasimhlu for making false and baseless allegations against him and his family on the directions of TRS party high command.
“My wife Jamuna had already clarified on the issue. If she is having one acre of illegal land she was ready to rub her nose to the ground. She demanded the government to constitute an inquiry and probe into the allegations”, he pointed.
Mr Rajender continued his ‘Praja deevena’ padayatra on the fifth day in Jammikunta and Illandakunta mandals on Friday and participated in several roadshows by interacting with the villagers. Speaking on the occasion, he alleged that Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao had made Narsimhulu speak against him. “Mr KCR had praised us for our commitment to the cause of Telangana movement and hailed us as brothers. But now why we have turned into demons and what crime did I do”, he asked.
“Is it wrong to ask the government to open paddy procurement centres and given new pensions and ration cards”, he questioned. “The parties and flags are not important. This is a struggle between the people and the adamant KCR”, he stated. The Chief Minister had distanced him from the leaders but not from the hearts of the people. Your photos are on the vinyl posters and my photos are in the hearts of the people, he claimed.
Stating that had faced six elections and won within 18 years because of the frequent elections because of the adamant decision of KCR, he charged that the TRS was purchasing leaders like commodities in the market to defeat him by spending crores of rupees. “I trust on my integrity and truthfulness and the people of the segment will uphold justice”, he stated.
Refuting the TRS claims on Dalit bandhu, he asked why the government had not implemented the same during the last seven years. First fulfil the promises of making Dalit as the Chief Minister, double bedroom houses and three acres of land to dalits, he demanded. Former MP Jitender Reddy, former legislator Dharma Rao, BJP Kisan Cell national secretary P Sugunakar Rao, BJP leaders Sampath Rao, Yugandhar and others were also present.
