After being recognised recently as a State Party in Telangana and entering into Maharashtra’s politics with 2 Assembly seats, Majlise-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen run by Owaisi brothers geared up again to the state affairs. On Tuesday, the younger Owaisi Akbaruddin posed several questions on KCR government.
“A hungry person will suffice with a Roti and a glass of water. What is the use of Biryani for him, if it is provided 5 years later?” asked Owaisi.
He further fired KCR for not making Telangana’s name in the Centre’s list of 24-hour power plan states. His only statement in his speech that provided some relief to KCR was he held Congress and TDP responsible for the ongoing power crisis in the state.
In his storm of questions that attacked government all of a sudden, Owaisi asked, “Is there spare current available? If available, when will it be released to Telangana? Are they proper lines to transfer power? How much will it cost? Are there any funds allotted for this project in the budget? It is estimated that around 6 crore is to be expended for 1 megawatt power. On that basis the government needs 1.2 lakh crores. This is equal to state budget. How will you spend that much money? 4000 acres are required for 4000 megawatts NTPC plant and 2000 acres is necessary for 20000 mega watt plant. Is it possible for the government to allocate the above? Lift (Etthi Pothala) projects are majority in Telangana. They singularly require 7150 mega watts power. Even if we are able to generate 20000 mega watts power, what about the demand after 5 years? Will we be able to reach it? Are there any plans for the future of the state?”
