CM criticises Cong for obstructing developmental work
Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao has criticised the Opposition Congress for its attempts to obstruct the works launched by the State government to achieve accelerated development.
The Congress’ attitude could be seen from the fact that the party had prompted filing of over 200 cases against construction of irrigation projects and the way it opposed the government’s move to provide jobs on compassionate basis in the public sector Singareni Collieries Company Limited. “The Congress should at least now take up introspection of the projects which it should oppose and the projects which should be supported,” he said.
The Chief Minister was responding to the comments made by Congress Legislature Party (CLP) leader Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka expressing concerns over the contents of the Municipal Administration Bill that was passed in the Assembly on Friday. Mr. Bhatti lamented that the new legislation appeared to be aimed at centralisation of powers rather than decentralisation and this would not uphold the spirit of Gram Swaraj.
