Welcome: TRS president K. Chandrasekhar Rao welcoming Mallam Mallesham from Karimnagar district who joined TRS from TDP in Hyderabad on Monday.

HYDERABAD: Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) president K. Chandrasekhar Rao has said the silence of the Telugu Desam Party over the destruction of crest gates of Rajolibanda Diversion Scheme (RDS) on Tungabhadra river re-establishes that the party only protects the interests of Rayalaseema-Coastal Andhra districts.

Addressing a meeting on Monday to mark the admission of Malam Mallesham, former Telugu Desam MLA from Medaram in Karimnagar district, into the TRS, Mr. Rao said TDP president N. Chandrababu Naidu could have rushed the eight MLAs of his party from Mahabubnagar district to protest against the incident, but did not do so because the water flowed through the destructed gates to Rayalaseema. The TDP also did not support the bandh in Mahabubnagar district though the BJP and the CPI participated in it.

Mr. Rao questioned the concern of the TDP over construction of Babli project by Maharashtra while maintaining silence over RDS within the State. Appealing to the TDP cadre in Telangana to quit the party and join the TRS, he said there was no point for them to remain in TDP as it would continue to perpetrate injustices in the region. He had himself quit the TDP a decade ago unable to see such atrocities.

He asked TDP activists to introspect as to why they should remain in the party, especially when a major movement for separate Telangana was to unfold after December.

A lot of them were already in contact with him expressing their eagerness to join the TRS.
