Telangana CM KCR came down heavily on the TPCC chief Uttam Kumar Reddy and other Telangana Congress leaders after they staged 'Black Flag' demonstration across Telangana State accusing him of surrendering the interests of the state to Maharashtra with the agreement on irrigation projects.
While TRS leaders called the inter-state irrigation projects across the Godavari River with Maharashtra a historic pact, the Congress leaders led by TPCC chief Uttam Kumar Reddy, took out a rally from Gandhi Bhavan to the Hyderabad collectorate criticizing the agreement saying that KCR mortgaged Telangana before the neighboring state. They also accused the state Government of misleading Telangana people by falsifying the facts in the agreement.
Addressing a gathering at Begumpet Airport, CM KCR challenged Uttam to bring a copy of the agreement and prove that he misled people. KCR offered to go straight to Raj Bhavan to tender his resignation if Uttam could prove his claims regarding the agreement. KCR countered that TS Congress leaders are trying to hinder the progress of the state by creating unnecessary headaches to the working government.
