Hyderabad, June 11 (Maxim News): Former Minister & ex-Leader of Opposition in Telangana Legislative Council Mohammed Ali Shabbir demanded imposition of President’s Rule in the State and alleged that democracy has been throttled by TRS Government.
Shabbir , in a media statement, strongly condemned the house arrest of all top Congress leaders in view of the Chalo Secretariat call given by the Congress party to protest against the ineffective handling of Covid-19 situation by Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao and the inflated the electricity bills. “A picket has been deployed at my residence in Jubilee Hills since early morning and I was told that I was under house arrest. The police officials had no valid reason to justify my house arrest and said they were just following the orders from their superiors,” he informed.
Ali said that the Congress party has been exposing the failures of the TRS Government in handling the situation that arose due to Coronavirus. He said the TRS Government has failed to prevent the spread of Coronavirus and ruined the entire economy by imposing lockdown in an unplanned manner. Later, it announced relaxations again in an unplanned manner which boosted the number of Coronavirus cases across the State, especially Telangana. TRS Govt has totally failed to trace, test and treat the Covid-19 patients. Now it is afraid that its failures will be exposed if opposition is allowed to speak, he said.
He said people were burdened due to inflated and erratic electricity bills. He said it was inhuman to force people to pay huge power bills at a time when most of them have no money for food or survival. He said that the Congress leaders had plans to submit memorandums to Health and Energy Ministers on these issues. However, the TRS Govt kept them under house arrest so as to suppress their voice, he said.
“The negligent attitude and dictatorial behaviour of KCR Govt is a big threat for people’s lives in the present situation. Further, the continuance of TRS Govt is a threat to existence of democracy in Telangana. Therefore, the Governor should intervene into the matter and recommend the Centre to impose President’s Rule,” he demanded. (Maxim News)
