Congress hits on BRS saying diverting Rythu Bandhu Funds:- The day after the conclusion of the Telangana Assembly elections, A Revanth Reddy, TPCC president, Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka, CLP leader, and Madhu Yaskhi Goud, TPCC campaign committee chairman, accused the BRS government of "misusing" funds, including those designated for Rythu Bandhu, in order to obtain kickbacks from contractors. They also claimed that the government was engaging in "illegal" registration of assigned lands in the names of BRS leaders' proxies.
During an informal discussion with journalists, Revanth expressed his belief that the "outgoing" BRS government was diverting funds to contractors for various projects, as they had realized their impending defeat in the elections. He further alleged that the state government was attempting to register the assigned lands.
Revanth stated that the Congress party would lodge a complaint with the Election Commission of India, requesting surveillance of all transactions, both financial and land-related. Later in the day, during a press conference at Gandhi Bhavan, Vikramarka addressed the issue, highlighting that the caretaker BRS government was abusing its power by registering hundreds of acres of valuable assigned lands surrounding Hyderabad.
According to Vikramarka, these lands were highly valuable, with prices ranging from 30 to 50 crores per acre in the open market.
