The Minister for Minor Irrigation T.G. Venkatesh foresaw that the dejected Telangana people would revolt against the protestors, who are demanding a separate state, due to the ongoing changes in the state by the end of this month. While addressing media at proddatur on Monday he said the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) Chief K. Chandrasekhar Rao (KCR) was behaving like a hysteria patient.
Mr Venkatesh lamented that people were facing unprecedented difficulty with skyrocketing prices of essential commodities and power supply crisis. And general view is that people are vexed with disturbance to their day to day activity from all walks life. Power from Rayalaseema was supplied to Telangana and similarly vice versa.
He said it was not correct of KCR in obstructing welfare schemes launched by the government. He questioned the intentions of the agitators in demanding power supply for agriculture, while obstructing power generation itself in the state. He also questioned how it is possible to demand salaries for employees, who abstained from their duties on pretext of Telangana movement.
Mr Venkatesh stated that the Centre was thinking of checking emergence of problems in other regions, while resolving Telangana issue. He challenged KCR to prove that no separate state demands would come to the fore in the country, if Telangana was separated. Former MLA, N. Vardarajulu Reddy, also participated.
