Participating as chief guest at the day-long `Jana Jagran Abhiyan' programme organised by the District Congress Committee in front of the Collectorate here on Tuesday, Mr. Satyanarayana Rao said, "Some people have opened Telangana `shops' and we should close down that shops in the interest of the party's progress.'' He hoped that the party high command would also take a positive decision on the Telangana issue as he had already informed the AICC president, Sonia Gandhi, about it.
Launching a scathing attack on the Telugu Desam Party's eight-year regime, he pointed out that if the pending projects on the river Godavari and other irrigation projects were completed by the Government, there would not have been any Telangana issue. Expressing concern over huge debts made by the Government, he charged that there was no development of any sector during TDP rule. There was unrest among the workforce with the closure of industries and increase of unemployment, he said and added that the Government had also neglected the farming community.
On the recent liquor deaths in Guntur district, he said the TDP founder, N.T. Rama Rao, had introduced total prohibition in the interest of the public, while the Chief Minister, N. Chandrababu Naidu, had lifted it and ensured that there was a liquor shop in each and every village.
The DCC president and MLA, D. Sridhar, presided.
The Buggaram MLA and PCC secretary, J. Ratnakar Rao, said the TRS president, K. Chandrasekhar Rao, had never uttered a word on the backwardness of Telangana region when he was a Minister in the TDP Government.
The MLAs -- T Jeevan Reddy and Bomma Venkateshwar - spoke.
