Telangana Congress, which has launched an all-round attack on TRS on the issue of growing number of suicides in state, on Monday fielded AICC spokesperson and former Nizambad MP Madhu Yaski Goud against Kavita, Nizambad MP. Kavita, participating in a round table on Sunday, sought to lay all the blame for suicides at the doors Congress, which ruled the state during 2004-14. TRS leaders, caught unawares by suicides, have been consistently blaming the Congress for the suicides. The Pink party is worried that high death toll has the potential to undo the all other developmental work the KCR government is planning. Hence the Congress bashing by Kavita.
So, to counter Kavata’s accusation, Congress fielded Yaski, who represented the Nizambad Lok Sabha constituency between 2004 and 2014. Yaski launched a frontal attack on Kavita by dubbing all the suicides by farmers were the murders by the state government led by her father. The fifteen-month old TRS government belied the hopes of farmers that Telangana state would put an end to the miseries and herald a new phase of decent life, Yaski said in Hyderabad.
“KCR’s very presence in their own Medak district has failed to reassure the farmers. That fact that the highest number of suicides are reported from the backyard of chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao tells what type of governance the people inherited in the state,” he said. He wondered as to why neither the CM, nor ministers Harish Rao or Ramaraor nor his daughter Kavita thought of visiting the families of the farmers to console them and reassure them about the government support. In fact, Yaski said, the KCR clan is angry on farmers that they were bringing disrepute to the state.
He ridiculed Kavata’s round table stating that, “you allow the farmers commit suicide on one side, and sitting in Hyderabad you announce that you would adopt their villages. What type of drama is it?”
Yaski asked Kavita, the leader of Telangana Jagruti, to reveal the sources of income of her organization.”How do you adopt the villages on behalf of Telangana Jagruti? You owe an explanation to the people about the sources of income and they way the money has so far been spent,” Yaski asked.
