Seemandhra protests only because of pride: KCR

Telangana Rashtra Samithi president K Chandrasekhar Rao on Saturday condemned the protests undertaken by students from Rayalaseema and Coastal Andhra against the postponement of the recruitment tests for the Sub-Inspectors posts.

Talking to media persons at Telangana Bhavan, KCR also blamed Chief Minister K Rosaiah for the turn of events and the spate of protests, first by Osmania University students and subsequently by Seemandhra students.

The TRS chief said that if Mr Rosaiah had listened to sane advice and acted in time, the question of any protests would not have risen at all. Mr Rosaiah has been negligent, the TRS chief bluntly stated.

KCR, turning his attention to the protests in Seemandhra region, wondered what harm would anyone suffer if the tests were postponed for another month.

The Telangana protagonist tried to dilute the protests by the people from Seemandhra by saying that they are resorting to protests only because they are unable to swallow their pride. The TRS chief added that the opposition to the tests by the people of Telangana was legitimate, since the issue had been contentions from the time of the Nizam’s rule.

He also questioned the right of leaders Rayalaseema and Coastal Andhra regions to talk about unity among the three regions of the state. KCR stated that there is no question of the three regions s.

The TRS chief further revealed that he would take up the issue of the problems being faced by Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation contract labourers. He added that ‘his government’ will regularise the services of GHMC contract labourers after it comes to power following the creation of a separate Telangana state.
