TDP district president and former legislator Ch. Vijayaramana Rao has alleged that Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao had betrayed the Dalits by making false promises for their upliftment in separate Telangana State.

Talking to newsmen here on Saturday, he alleged that Mr. Chandrashekhar Rao promised to make Dalit as Chief Minister and cheated them after attaining power. Similarly, he promised to waive all the power dues of the Dalits, but on the other hand the government was forcibly fleecing the Dalits to pay the bills, he said and added that the government had also failed on the promise of providing three acres of land to the Dalits.

Demanding that district Ministers Etala Rajender and K. Taraka Rama Rao should take appropriate measures to stop the vigilance raids on the Dalit colonies demanding the payment of power dues, he threatened to launch agitational programmes and expose the true colours of the TRS government which was working against the Dalits.

Ridiculing the State government’s announcement to make the Warangal as textile hub of Telangana State, he found fault with the government for the neglect of power loom weavers of Sircilla textile where there were highest number of power looms in the State.

He demanded that the government should focus on the development of the existing textile park in Sircilla town to provide employment to the local weavers.

Alleging that the government was neglecting the Karimnagar district on all fronts in spite of people electing majority of TRS leaders for the Assembly, parliament, local bodies, etc., he also demanded that the government should fulfil its promise of sanctioning a Sainik School to Karimnagar district.

He also charged that the government was purposefully removing the pensions and ration cards on various pretexts and causing hardships to the beneficiaries.

TDP State secretary Annamaneni Narsinga Rao, district leaders K. Agaiah and others were also present.
