Humiliating defeat in Huzurnagar by-polls May crush KCR’s arrogance: Shabbir

October 12th, 2019

Hyderabad : Former minister and ex-Leader of Opposition in Legislative Council Mohammed Ali Shabbir today urged the minorities to ensure that not a single vote from their communities went  to ruling TRS in forthcoming by-elections for Huzurnagar Assembly constituency.
Addressing corner meetings in Nederacherla mandal of Huzurnagar constituency on Saturday, where by-polls are scheduled to be held on October 21, Shabbir Ali pointed out that the Chief Minister of the state  K. Chandrashekhar Rao had  cheated the Muslim community on multiple counts. Listing out failures of TRS Government, he said KCR did not fulfil the promises of giving 12% quota in jobs and education to Muslims. He also said that the CM did not give judicial powers to Wakf Board or restored an inch of encroached land. “Similarly, TRS Govt neglected Urdu, did not appointed a single Urdu teacher, reduced minorities welfare budget by over 30%, never spent the full allocated budget; closed dozens of minority colleges, deprived poor minorities of scholarship and fee reimbursement, remained silent on cut in Central funds for minority welfare and did nothing to tackle rising unemployment among minority youth,” he said.
Shabbir Ali alleged that KCR was not a secular Leader  as he pretends to be. “KCR supported all the decisions taken by Prime Minister Narender Modi like demonitisation, GST, elections of President and Vice President of India, Deputy Chairman of Rajya Sabha, NIA Amendment Bill and most importantly Triple Talaq Bill. “TRS Government did not even go for appeal in a higher court over the acquittal given by CBI Special Court in Mecca Masjid blast case. It also demolished Ek Khana Masjid in Amberpet and two mosques in the Secretariat premises are on the verge of demolition,” he said.
The Congress leader condemned TRS Government for not honouring the promise of constructing the Shaadi Khana in Mellachervu which has a significant minority population. On behalf of TPCC President Captain  Uttam Kumar Reddy, he promised that Rs. 50 lakh would be sanctioned for Shaadi Khana from the MPLAD funds.
Earlier, Shabbir Ali had an interactive meeting with prominent leaders of minority communities at Kodad. Later, Shabbir Ali, along with former CLP leader K. Jana Reddy and religious scholar Moulana Lateef addressed a press conference. He said that Huzurnagar by-elections was the best opportunity to smash KCR’s dictatorial attitude. Referring to mass dismissal of RTC employees, he alleged that KCR wanted to treat employees like slaves and those refusing to obey his insane orders were being targeted in an inhuman manner. He said all sections of the society were fed up with the dictatorial attitude of Chief Minister.
Shabbir Ali also said that KCR was yet to recover from the shock of defeat in Lok Sabha, especially that of his daughter in Nizamabad seat.  “KCR’s arrogance has now turned into frustration and he has started taking insane decisions like sacking more than 48,000 RTC employees in a single shot. He said KCR did not give any prominence to key sectors like education and health,” he said. He pointed out that KCR and other TRS leaders had stopped talking about Kaleshwaram since one month and added that People of the state  had  now realised that Kaleshwaram was a publicity while noting that  despite tall claims not a single acre of land was irrigated and nearly 4,000 TMC of Godavari water went into sea.
