Rajya Sabha member and senior Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi said Congress would seek answers, accounts and accountability of all the wrongdoings from the ruling TRS once the government was formed, and added that he would not let caretaker Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao have a peaceful sleep.

Referring to KCR’s recent remarks at a public meeting that he would rest at his house if TRS was not voted to power, Mr. Singhvi said the former was convinced of his defeat and hence has decided to go back to his farm house. “But the coming Congress government will ensure that KCR, his family members and senior Ministers explain the loot of the State,” he said.

Mr. Singhi, who was addressing a press conference here on Sunday, said the family of four has robbed four crore people of Telangana. “They have created a graveyard of broken promises, a legacy of breach of trust, a betrayal of emotions and a denial of all expectations,” Mr. Singhvi alleged.

The Parliament member claimed that the TRS government was ranked second on ‘corruption charts’ and several scams had ruined the State.

He said in Miyapur land scam, influential people had grabbed hundreds of acres of government land. Terming it the mother of all scams, he said 696 acres of government land was handed over to private parties causing a loss of ₹587 crore to the State government.

Mr. Singhvi said under Mr. KCR’s rule, the pillars of democracy were dismantled deliberately and the very purpose of Telangana was defeated with all the voices suppressed.

He claimed that the TRS was a sinking ship and sensing its defeat, all the leaders and cadre were leaving the party.
