TRS is Treacherous Robbers Samithi

Strongly condemning Telangana IT minister K T Rama Rao's outburst against senior leaders of the Congress party, Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) on Wednesday described TRS as "Treacherous Robbers Samithi" and not Telangana Rashtra Samithi.

TPCC official spokesman Dasoju Sravan alleged that the family members of chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao were directly connected with sand mafia in Sircilla and other places.

He said rules were twisted to allot tenders in favour of Goldmines Mineral Company. He asked whether or not KCR's close relative Santosh Kumar was a partner in the Goldmines Company.

By setting aside the directives of National Green Tribunal, the TRS government has allowed indiscriminate mining of sand by putting the entire environment at risk.

Further, he said that government was collecting only Rs. 8,250 for each truck of sand while the same was being sold in the open market for about Rs 80,000.

He said that the KCR family was directly benefitting from these illegal operations.

He said only 25 per cent of revenues from sand mining were coming to the state's exchequer while the rest was going into the pockets of KCR family.

Sravan also condemned KTR for his silence on the police brutality on Dalits and others by Sircilla police.

He said it was highly condemnable that by the minister was trying to justify third degree torture and brutality by police on those who protested against the death of local residents in road accidents caused due to illegal movement of hundreds of trucks in their small village.

He said the villagers were tortured so brutally that the jail authorities refused to admit them and police was forced to take them in a hospital. By targeting Congress leaders, KTR was trying to hush up the entire issue, he alleged.

The Congress leader demanded that the State government order an enquiry through a sitting judge of High Court into the entire incident.
