Telangana Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister K T Rama Rao slammed at Congress leaders Digvijaya Singh, Jairam Ramesh and Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee President Uttam Kumar Reddy over the purchase of police vehicles by Telangana government.
Congress is making non-issue to issues for its survival in media, it is nothing but ‘intelligence bankruptcy’ of the Congress leaders.
He said Jairam Ramesh alleged that Telangana Chief Minister K.Chandrasheka Rao’s son and NDA Vice Presidential Candidate and former Union Minister M Venkaiah Naidu’s son were involved in a huge scam over the purchase of vehicles.
He said Telangana govt has purchased 300 Innova vehicles based on the rates finalized by DGSND of central govt. T govt gave the order to Toyota company, not from the dealer. T govt has also purchased many other vehicles.
He also reacted to allegations for exemption of tax for Swarna Bharathi trust which belongs to Venkaiah Naidu family. He said it is not the first time a tax exemption is given even in Congress govt many non-profit organizations were exemptions. He listed out all the exemptions given in Congress govt.
He said Swarna Bharathi was given 2 crores exemption and Balakrishna’s Nanamuri Basavatarakam trust was given highest exemption of 5 crores.
He said that the leaders of Congress with a history of 125 years were indulging in cheap tactics by making false and baseless allegations.
He said, “Jairam Ramesh if you have any common sense what so ever respond to this. You called this tax exemption unprecedented, I am saying it was done numerous time in the past by the previous Congress government in united AP, would you own up to it or apologize for it”, said KTR
He said, If Jairam has some shame he should withdraw his statement and apologize for the state govt.
