Hyderabad: Ruling out the apprehensions over possible Uranium mining, the Telangana chief minister K Chandrashekhar Rao has clarified that he wouldn’t allow Uranium mining. Under any circumstance, the TRS government will not allow such an act of distraction. The chief minister further announced that the TRS government would pass a resolution in the Telangana Assembly against Uranium mining and send it to the Centre.
KCR has ruled out speculative reports about his health. Mr Rao said that he will be the chief minister for the next ten years. “The TRS party will complete three terms under my chief ministership,” maintained Mr Rao.
“No one needs to worry over Uranium mining in the state. Already mining activity has begun in Andhra Pradesh. Uranium mining activity is continuing in Kadapa district. If Uranium mining continues, the day is not far off that water resources, and agricultural land will be polluted. Delta under projects at Srisailam, Nagarjunasagar, Pulichintala will be damaged. Hyderabad city will face acute drinking water problem. Considering all these facts, the TRS government will not allow Uranium mining in the state. If the Centre keeps the pressure on us, we’ll all fight united against the central government. The TRS government will pass a resolution in the Assembly on Monday and send it to the Centre,” Mr Rao assured the Telangana Legislative Assembly on Sunday.
The TRS party fought against approvals to Uranium mining in the united AP, added Mr Rao.
“It was Congress party that approved in 2009 in the united Andhra Pradesh. Ever since the Telangana state formation, the TRS government had never given any approval on Uranium mining or related activity. We wouldn’t be allowing any activity that would damage the Nallamala forest area. I’ll assure all the Telanganites that the TRS government will not allow any Uranium mining activity in the state in the future also,” remarked Mr Rao.

Responding to a question from the opposition parties, Mr Rao said that the transmission capacity rose from 14,973MW to 33,210MW since the formation of Telangana state. If the TRS government had not contributed to the growth of the state, how could we win 25 more MLA seats? “So I advise the opposition parties to speak with wisdom,” said Mr Rao.
