Telangana: BJP critical of plenary

Special Correspondent

Pranab Mukherjee's remarks on the issue criticised


  • Congress plenary termed a flattery session
  • Chidambaram's talk on irrigation projects too draws flak

    HYDERABAD : The Bharatiya Janata Party State unit has said that the just-concluded plenary of the Congress and the recent Pravas Bharatiya Divas has served no purpose for the State.

    While the Government, which conducted the Pravas Bharatiya Divas amidst much hype, failed to secure any commitment for investments in the State, the plenary session turned out to be a flattery session aimed at promoting Rahul Gandhi, the BJP said.

    Addressing a press conference here on Tuesday, senior BJP leader Ch. Vidyasagar Rao lamented that despite conducting the plenary in Telangana, the Congress failed to include issues facing the region in either political or economic resolutions of the party. "The Congress has won several seats in the previous elections on the separate Telangana slogan, but the region did not figure in the party's proceedings. Moreover, Union Minister Pranab Mukherjee's comments on Telangana was nothing but an insult to all those working for the cause of the region," he said.

    Reacting to the statement made by Union Finance Minister P. Chidambaram that the Centre would not consider the irrigation projects of the State as national projects, he wanted to know as to how the State Government was planning to raise Rs. 50,000 crores required for the projects.
