HYDERABAD: A team of Congress members led by its legislature party leader Bhatti Vikramarka were not allowed to proceed towards Kaleshwaram project site where the pump house of the mega project was submerged due to flood waters recently.
The team was also not allowed to visit the Dummugudem project site. The police stopped them and cited security reasons and possible threat of Maoists as the reasons for not allowing them to the project site.
The Congress members squatted on the road and raised slogans against chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, police and the TRS government. “It is the responsibility of the opposition party (Congress) to inspect and point out irregularities if any in projects that have been constructed with public money. There was no terrorist or anti-social element in the Congress-delegation. The police stopping the Congress leaders from visiting Kaleshwaram project site only exposes that there is corruption in it,” alleged Bhatti Vikramarka. The Congress members were taken into custody by the police.
The Congress team led by Bhatti are on a two-day visit to the flood affected areas in and around Godavari river in Bhadradri Kothagudem, Bhupalpally and other districts, were supposed to visit Dummugudem project and Kaleshwaram project among other project sites in various districts.
TPCC working president Mahesh Kumar Goud said the KCR-led TRS government should not have any problem in allowing Congress team to visit the kaleshwaram and other project sites if there is no irregularity or corruption in it.
“The state government should send its delegation to accompany the Congress team to show the project sites, if not the Congress will launch state-wide agitations,” he demanded.
