Hyderabad: Congress senior leader and MLC T. Jeevan Reddy on Friday alleged that the Central Government did not consider granting National Project status to Kaleshwaram Project as the Telangana Government has failed to send the Detailed Project Report (DPR).
At a press conference here, he said that the Central government has claimed that it has not received the DPR so far while Mr Chandrasekhar Rao is silent on it. “If the government has sent the DPR to the Centre, it should make those details public. Or else it is assumed that KCR is misleading people,” he said.
Advising Mr Chandrasekhar Rao to move a privilege motion against the Central government in Rajya Sabha if the Centre was lying, Mr Reddy asked KCR to take moral responsibility for not getting national status for the Kaleshwaram Project. He accused both the Centre and State of discriminating against the people of Telangana by pushing the State into a huge debt. He accused KCR of taking up the Kaleshwaram project for his personal benefit rather than the State’s interests.
