CM KCR Upset with Harish Rao
The vexed issue of Mallanna Sagar project seems to have created a rift within ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) leadership who seems to have been divided on this issue. There is already clash of opinions in the party regarding the exact form of land acquisition for the project which is coming up at Medak district.
A leading national daily which has become popular in Hyderabad over last few years has mentioned that CM KCR is upset with how irrigation minister has handled the project, which has given Telangana’s opposition a rallying point for the first time in last two years.
There are also reports that Harish Rao is not that happy about invoking of the Land Acquisition Act 2013, as he feels it is more easier for procuring land from the farmers as per the provisions of GO 123 that was issued according to Telangana government's own land policy.
The TRS cadre is worried that TRS has now started suffering a serious political backlash in its hard created bastion. The chief minister reportedly feels Harish Rao should have actually handled this in better manner. The coming days will decide who is right.
