KCR criticises Congress, BJP over Telangana bypolls

Hyderabad: TRS president K Chandrasekhar Rao
today criticised the ruling Congress and main opposition TDP
for their willingness to contest in the coming by-elections to
12 Assembly seats in Telangana region.

"They (Congress and TDP) did not quit in the first place.
Now, they want to contest the bypolls. Do they want to prove
that there is no sentiment in favour of separate Telangana?,"
Rao said, addressing a gathering at the TRS office here.

Telangana people should highlight their strong support
for separate state by making TRS candidates win in the
bypolls, he said.

The by-elections have been necessitated by the
resignation of 10 TRS MLAs and one MLA each from TDP and BJP
in support of Telangana demand.

TRS and the Telangana Joint Action Committee (JAC) have
appealed to Congress and TDP not to field their candidates in
the bypolls as the sitting MLAs had quit their posts in
support of the separate statehood demand.

However, the two main parties have indicated their
willingness to contest the bypolls though they have not yet
announced the final word.

The JAC comprises TRS, BJP and various other
organisations.

The bypolls should be held before mid-August as required
by the law.
