Telangana common people are copping to meet Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao. Prior, the CMs in the diligent state used to conduct “praja durbars” frequently to enable people to meet them personally and submit petitions.
Formerly, there is no ambit for common people to meet Mr Rao either at the Secretariat or at his camp office in Begumpet due to heavy security issues.
Mr Rao has failed to restore “praja durbars” even after he took charge.
People are in fire at the way they are being dissipated at the Secretariat and the camp office when they ask for privilege to meet the CM.
During his tenure between 2004 and 2009 former CM Dr Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy had started “praja durbars”, which became a huge blow. It was later continued by ensuing CMs K. Rosaiah and Kiran Kumar Reddy.
Hundreds of visitors would be allowed inside the camp office in visiting sessions. Issues relating to pensions ration cards, scholarships, fee reimbursement, Aarogyasri, housing etc. would be petitioned by the people and many of their problems would get instant solutions.
Of late, Mr Rao has been maintaining a distance not only from the general public but also not to allow even MLAs, MPs and other public representatives to meet the CM unless they have prior appointments. These restrictions are inviting the wrath of not only common people but also public representatives who feel let down.
