No op­tion but ‘war’: TJAC

Deccan Chronicle - - POLITICS -

Hint­ing that he was los­ing pa­tience due to the govern­ment re­main­ing un­moved even af­ter se­ries of ag­i­ta­tions, TJAC chair­man M. Kodandaram on Tues­day said that wag­ing a war alone ap­pears to be the way for­ward to bring “peo­ple’s Te­lan­gana”.

He was par­tic­i­pat­ing in a round­table meet­ing on Te­lan­gana, or­gan­ised by Te­lan­gana Jour­nal­ists Vedika where he said that a ‘naya ja­gir’ rule is now ex­ist­ing in the state and this cer­tainly was not the govern­ment peo­ple

It’s quite painful to see a govern­ment where peo­ple are not ex­pected to ex­press dissent or share their prob­lems at a proper plat­form

— M. KODANDARAM, TJAC chair­man

ex­pected dur­ing sep­a­rate Te­lan­gana agi­ta­tion. “We wished that there would be a govern­ment re­spon­si­ble for the peo­ple, cater to all sec­tions of the so­ci­ety and more­over, sen­si­tive to­wards peo­ple’s is­sues af­ter for­ma­tion of sep­a­rate Te­lan­gana state. How­ever, the three year rule of TRS is al­most sim­i­lar to the gov­ern­ments that ex­isted in un­di­vided AP,” Prof. Kon­dan­daram said.

He said all the sys­tems have been made to col­lapse in the state and ev­ery­thing is be­ing de­cided and dic­tated by only one per­son, the Chief Min­is­ter.

Prof. Kodandaram also flayed the govern­ment for ig­nor­ing and not tak­ing cor­rec­tive mea­sures over the mas­sive cor­rup­tion tak­ing place at all lev­els and in all de­part­ments in the state.

“If the govern­ment is se­ri­ous in check­ing cor­rup­tion and build­ing 2BHK houses for all, let it take steps to check cor­rup­tion in Mis­sion Bha­gi­ratha and Mis­sion Kakatiya, lot of amounts can be saved which can be di­verted to the hous­ing scheme,” the TJAC chief sug­gested.

Former Assem­bly Speaker K.R. Suresh Reddy crit­i­cised the three year TRS rule, say­ing that it has brought noth­ing for Te­lan­gana state, and said that the Chief Min­is­ter has failed to rep­re­sent the state is­sues to Cen­tre and get­ting them re­solved.
