Addressing the meeting organised to celebrate the 70th birth day of AICC Chief Sonia Gandhi in the name of ‘Thanksgiving Day’ here on Friday at Prakasham Hall at Gandhi Bhavan, TPCC Chief N Uttam Kumar Reddy alleged that the TRS government failed to fulfil the assurances made by it during the elections and passing time deceiving the people. The TRS government was failed to transform the Hyderabad city as Dallas more so it was destroying the existing Hyderabad. The TRS government was involving in scams and Rs.100 crore scam in GHMC came to light recently. Nanakramguda building, which has no permission for seven stores, collapse was the best example for the TRS government corruption, he said and demanded KTR to tender his resignation immediately owning the responsibility and to show ethics in politics.
He said that Sonia Gandhi had conceded separate Telangana state sticking to the word given by her keeping politics aside. Sonia’s name would long last till Telangana state exists. UPA government decisions yielded results and they showed its accountability in eradicating poverty and transparency in the governance. The credit of introducing revolutionary schemes like Food Security Act, NREGS, RTI, RTE and other goes to Sonia Gandhi, he said.

He said that it was shameful on the part of the Minister to make such a statement thinking that the opposition parties may pull the government on double bed room houses, three acre land for daliths, muslim reservations and other issues in the House. He ridiculed that the TRS leaders were making such statements afraid of opposition parties.
