Uttam Accuses TRS, BJP Govts Of Neglecting Old City
Hyderabad, March.2 (Maxim News): Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) President & MP Capt. N. Uttam Kumar Reddy has accused TRS Government and BJP Govt at the Centre of completely neglecting Hyderabad, especially the Old City during the last seven years.
“Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao never visited the Old City in the last seven years. He did not hold a single review meeting since 2014 to understand or resolve the problems being faced by the residents of Old City of Hyderabad although he had promised to develop this region as the next Istanbul. Graduates from the Old City have no job opportunities and they often face discrimination at their places of works due to their area of residence,” Uttam said.
He was addressing a series of meetings in the Old City on Tuesday as part of campaign for the MLC candidate G. Chinna Reddy of Hyderabad-Rangareddy-Mahabubnagar Graduates constituency. The TPCC Chief, along with Congress candidate Chinna Reddy and other leaders, first performed Puja at Maha Kali Temple in Lal Darwaza. Later, he addressed a meeting with Congress cadre of Charminar, Chandrayangutta, Bahadurpura and Yakutpura constituencies at Famous Function Hall, Sardar Mahal near Charminar. They also had a meeting with the leaders of the Shia community.
Uttam, Chinna Reddy and other leaders visited Dargah Yousufain at Nampally. Later, they also addressed a meeting at Musheerabad constituency.
The TPCC Chief alleged that the KCR Govt behaved as if the Old City of Hyderabad did not exist in Telangana State. He said not a single new project was launched in the Old City since 2014. Further, he said the projects like Charminar Pedestrianisation and Musi River Rejuvenation remained incomplete due to shortage of funds and official lethargy. He strongly condemned TRS Govt for bringing the Metro Rail to the Old City. (Maxim News)
