Is Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao dancing to the tunes of the MIM and taking decision that suits the Telangana Rashtra Samithi ally? Well, that is what the Bharatiya Janata Party feels. On Thursday, BJP floor leader in the Assembly Dr K Lakshman alleged that the Telangana State government was taking decisions under the pressure from MIM party leaders.
Lakshman alleged that the State Government had directed the L&T to change the path of Metro Rail only after discussing with the MIM MLAs and it took unilateral decisions in this regard. He asked the Government to rethink on changing of Ganesh immersions from Hussain Sagar and said the change of place will injure sentiments of the Hindus.
The Chief Minister however clarified that he had not taken the decision on Metro rail alignment only after discussing with the MIM leaders. He said the MIM legislators happened to come to his chambers at a time when he was holding the meeting with Metro Rail officials and he had to ask them to join the meeting. He assured that he would convene an all-party meeting shortly to discuss and take a decision on the proposed changes in the metro rail alignment.
