Hyderabad: Telangana Jana Samithi president Prof. M Kodandaram on Sunday alleged that those who opposed Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao during separate State agitation, were now friends of the Chief Minister. He alleged that former minister Patnam Mahender reddy, who didn’t even allow them to hold a meeting at Tandur during separate State agitation, told him that he would become an MLA and a minister if he spends Rs 5 crore. Prof. Kodandaram made it clear that he never aspired for MLA or minister post in his life.
Addressing mediapersons here, Prof. Kodandaram came down heavily against the State government for its negligent attitude against several public problems. He said though they thought the lives of Telangana people would be changed after formation of the separate State, he said the residence of Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao was shifted to Pragati Bhavan without any change in the lives of the common people in the State. He reminded that the Telangana ideologue Prof. Jayashankar had made it clear that public struggles would be inevitable after the formation of the separate State. He made it clear that it was not KCR’s Telangana but the people’s Telangana.
