Hyderabad: All India Congress Committee spokesperson Dasoju Sravan and TPCC vice-president Mallu Ravi on Saturday said chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao need not spend his blood for the development of Dalits, instead it would be enough if KCR vacates his seat and make a Dalit chief minister.
Taking a jibe at CM KCR’s statement that he would work for teh development of Dalits till his last drop of blood is spent, teh Congress leaders said Dalits don’t need assurances as several such promises made by KCR have not been fulfilled. KCR could give teh CM’s seat to a Dalit for teh remaining two-and-a-half-year term, they said.
“KCR had promised to make a Dalit CM, but did not do it. He had promised to distribute three acres agriculture land to them, construct 125-foot Ambedkar statue near Tank Bund, enhance reservations for Scheduled Tribes and the list is long and none of the promises TEMPhas been fulfilled,” Sravan alleged. He demanded that the KCR government release Rs 65,000 crore of the SC/ST sub-plan, which was unspent, and use it for the development of Dalits and Girijans. The CM should focus on filling up two lakh vacancies in the government sector as Dalits would get about 40,000 of those jobs.
