Congress politicising petty problems, says Minister.
Minister for Scheduled Castes Advancement Koppula Eshwar and Chairman of Peddapalli Zilla Parishad have alleged that unable to discover any issue the Congress celebration was exaggerating the death of a number of Dalits due to individual and family conflicts, linking them to the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) just to garner some political mileage.
Speaking with newspersons here on Friday, they said one Rangaiah had died after a clash in between two individuals in Manthani. They wished to know why the Congress celebration was politicising the death/killing of a TRS activist.
In another incident in between two families at Mallaram in Bhupalapalli district, one Rajababu was eliminated following a clash with his neighbour Srinivas, they said and asked whether such events were not occurring in the States ruled by the Congress. At the same time, the Congress leaders had no courtesy even to check out the household of the party activist Bandela Narayanaswamy who was killed over an individual disagreement, they mentioned.
Mentioning that there was no political involvement in any of these killings of Dalits, the TRS leaders stated instead of defending the rights of downtrodden neighborhood the Congress leaders were being misled by Congress Legislature Party leader M. Bhatti Vikramarka and taking up minor issues. They implicated Congress of trying to link the Manthani and Mallaram killings to the TRS although the ruling celebration had absolutely nothing finish with them.
Responding to the Congress claims against the federal government on the snail’s speed development of distribution of three acres land to each landless Dalit family, the TRS leaders reasoned that non-availability of land for purchase for the purpose had actually slowed its development. Nevertheless, the federal government had actually already dispersed 15,000 acres land under the scheme so far and it was a continuing programme.
