The Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) will launch a novel programme ‘gadapa gadapaki Telangana’ (Telangana movement to every household) from April 1 to intensify the movement.

All MLAs and MLCs of the party will meet people at their threshold as part of the programme and explain to them about the need for their active participation in the movement to achieve statehood to the region at the earliest. The party think tank is of the view that active participation of people in the movement in large numbers will bring pressure on the government to take a decision on the issue.

Speaking after inaugurating the local office of TRS at Lalaguda here on Sunday, senior MLA of the party T. Harish Rao said it was because of the support of the Congress and TDP MLAs from Telangana region that the N. Kiran Kumar Reddy government was surviving.

Blaming Ministers Danam Nagender and M. Mukesh Goud for drinking water problem in the city, the TRS alleged that their inability to build pressure on the government to release sufficient funds was delaying the water supply projects. He sought to know whether Secunderabad MLA Jayasudha had ever visited any locality in her constituency facing acute drinking water problem.

The TRS leader said the Chief Minister was showing discrimination towards Hyderabad too in spite of his repeated claims of being a “true Hyderabadi”. He said allocation of Rs. 7,000 crore for drinking water projects in his native Chittoor against just Rs. 800 crore to Hyderabad was an ample proof of the Chief Minister’s bias.
