Where is KCR?Jul 09, 2020 11:21 AM
Telangana is in news for all the wrong reasons and the situation seems out of control when it comes to handling Corona cases. The ripple effect of the mishandling of Covid-19 case is visible in the political circles. Above all the absence of Chief Minister is making things worst. MP Revanth Reddy from Congress believes that there is a serious problem in state administration. Also, the missing of the Chief Minister does not augur well for the state in this crisis.
MP Revanth Reddy said, “There have been reports that KCR might have contracted Coronavirus and hence, had been confined to his farmhouse for the last 10 days. The government should release a health bulletin on his health status, as it is a crime to keep his health condition a secret.”
However, the news of CM infected with Covid-19 is dismissed as fake and it was spread through grapevine through a local newspaper. The Journalist who spread the false information was nabbed after someone booked a case against him.
Political opponents are also suggesting that if the Chief Minister is unable to manage the situation he should give the responsibility to Eatala Rajender, K T Rama Rao, or Harish Rao.
The ministers from the opposition are critical about KCR sitting in his farmhouse. In fact, if the Chief Minister is healthy he should not sit in his farmhouse.
There is a suggestion that Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan should intervene in the functioning of the state, and according to the AP Reorganisation Act, there are powers given to the Governor to administer the entire Hyderabad and Greater Hyderabad.
Former President of Pradesh Congress Ponnala Lakshmaiah was rather harsh he stated that “He has gone into hiding at a time when the people of the state are facing a lot of hardship due to increasing intensity of Coronavirus pandemic.”
Ponnala Lakshmaiah is also in favor of President Rule. He was more vitriolic and also criticized the State Government for demolishing the old Secretariat Complex. He went to the extent of comparing State Government with Tughlaq Rule.
