Eatala Rajender, the former Health Minister of Telangana and a leader of the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) addressed the media.
On the 5th of August, Mr. Eatala Rajender, a member of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) addressed the media and criticised the ruling TRS Government. During his press meet, Mr. Rajender said, K. Chandrashekar Rao, the Chief Minister of Telangana, bribed the leaders of Huzurabad Assembly constituency. He said, the ruling Telangana Government spent a whopping amount of Rs. 150 crore to bribe the leaders of many political parties in Huzurabad Assembly constituency.
Highlighting the recent announcement of the TRS Government of increasing the Aasara Pension Scheme age limit, the BJP leader took a dig against the TRS. He said, amid the Huzurabad by polls, the State Government increased the age limit, which was a pending promise of the TRS since the past 3 years.
The former Member of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) of Huzurabad constituency Mr. Eatala Rajender also said, “It pains me, as those who opposed the Telangana movement now enjoy top positions in the Government. Being KCR’s man during the 2018 elections, he tried to damage my prospects and this would be a gift for him. He further clarified about the rumours staring, the former Health Minister was undergoing knee surgery, Eatala Rajender said, “My only weapon in this election would be winning the hearts of people by meeting them. Following medical advice, I shall take up a padayatra in a few days, which is the only option I have. It is high time that people teach a lesson to KCR.”
Mr. Eatala’s press meet was organised right after his discharge from Apollo Hospital in Hyderabad, where he was admitted for his knee surgery.
The press meet of the new BJP leader and the former TRS member is expected to be a campaign kick start for the upcoming Huzurabad by poll.
After the resignation of Mr. Eatala Rajender as the TRS MLA, the Huzurabad Assembly seat fell vacant.
The Election Commission of India (ECI) is likely to announce the dates of the Huzurabad Assembly by poll soon, as it is due to be held anytime in 2021.
