Telangana: The decision to elect the state president for Telangana Bharatiya Janta Party will be taken in the election year, stated Bharatiya Janata Party leader and Huzurabad MLA Etela Rajender.
Addressing the media, Etela said, "There have been rumours in Telangana that the party is going for a change of leadership. Right now, there is no such step being taken by the party president. The decision will be based on who is the popular leader in the masses and who can win the people's hearts."
He said that BJP does not take decisions based on whims and fancies. The national president will decide based on reports from members and the popularity of the leaders.
GO 111 is part of the Scam
On scrapping GO 111, Etala alleged that it was part of the Scam by Telangana chief minister KCR.
"KCR is doing the same thing that TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu and Andhra Pradesh chief minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy have done. Looted thousands of crores of public money by handing over lands from the prohibited list to their followers."
"Twin reservoirs Osmansagar and Himayatsagar were built not only for drinking water but also preventing Hyderabad from floods. They are maintaining the ecological balance in Hyderabad. We cannot allow Hyderabad to become a concrete jungle to suffice the greed for wealth. A small rain and Hyderabad roads are flooded," he said.
The BJP leader stated that GO 111 will be a disaster for Hyderabad, and it must not be allowed. He opined that the real estate will benefit, and they will give KCR money for elections. Only he is going to benefit from the GO. I appeal to him to immediately cancel the GO.
Speaking about the Kaleswaram project, the BJP leader said, "The fields from Kaleswaram to Ellampalli were submerged in monsoon season as Kaleswaram was filled beforehand. The walls collapsed, and motors were burnt. What is the plan of action this year? Filling Kaleswaram in advance is not helping."
Issues of Dharani portal
According to the BJP leader, about 18 lakh farmers have applied due to the mistakes made in Dharani portal. It was supposed to be a solution for the land problems. Instead, the portal has become a problem for the farmers.
Vikarabad is suffering the most, claims Etala, as there are reports from senior government officials that it will take two years to sort out the issues caused by Dharani registrations.
