TDP plans Maha dharna in Vijayawada
Addressing a press conference at NTR Trust Bhavan on Wednesday, Mylavaram MLA Devineni Umamaheswara Rao said that farmers from Krishna, West Godavari, Guntur, and Prakasam districts would participate in large numbers to “wake up the State government from its deep slumber”.
Stating that Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy pompously announced that the government would release 15 TMC to the Delta region, but till date all that the government has discharged is only a meagre 3.5 TMC of Krishna water.
Umamaheshwar Rao said that the government was not making any effort to file counter affidavit in the High Court before August 27 and added hat 84 TMC of water was sufficient to generate hydel power.
The TDP leader also accused the Chief Minister of participating in the Indiramma Baata programme without bothering about people’s problems. Meanwhile, TDP leader Dhulipala Narendra alleged that the crops in the region were withering due to frequent power cuts causing huge losses to the distressed farmers.
