Hyderabad: Congress senior leader and TPCC chairman V. Hanumantha Rao will begin his ratha yatra against the TRS from Thursday.
Speaking to this newspaper Hanumantha Rao said, “The ratha yatra will provide strong publicity for the Congress, while the failures and irregularities of the TRS will be exposed. We are preparing some songs that explain how Chandrasekhar Rao has failed to fulfill his promises. During the tour we will ask the public about local issues and the promises made by the TRS. As the promises given by the TRS were not fulfilled, we will also expose how the TRS government has cheated the people.”
He added, “The people of Telangana are unhappy with the administration of Mr Rao. Many of the people voted for him for the jobs, water and double bedrooms and he has failed in fulfilling all those promises made.”
