Siddipet has become synonymous for both rampant corruption and developmental activities in recent period. There is a local talk that Siddipet MLA T Harish Rao encouraged each and every department in this newly formed district to go on mass scale corruption allocating a strict share of his own from each department amassing hundreds of crores within Siddipet district while his earnings from Irrigation Ministry are allegedly par above to KTR, KCR put together.
Well aware of Harish Rao’s massive corruption activities, KCR is delaying Cabinet expansion. It clearly seems that, Harish may not get berth in the cabinet this time. If given ministry in unfavorable circumstances, it will be an insignificant post.
KCR is strategically plummeting the roll of Harish Rao in Telangana Government and also in TRS Party. In the process, KCR allowed arch rivals Jagga Reddy and Vanteru Pratap Reddy join the party. Although Jagga Reddy and Vanteru are reportedly going for verbal attack on Harish Rao during press meets in Telangana Bhavan itself, none from the party are taking his side.
Above all, KCR who usually gives utmost importance to Harish Rao while conducting government or family related events is isolating him completely of late. Recently, it was Vanteru Pratap Reddy who looked after arrangements of Chandi Yagam in KCR farmhouse.
Going by the latest developments, Harish Rao will lose all his powers in the government and party.
