A day after Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao had disclosed the results of his survey on the electoral fortunes of TRS to his party MLAs, opposition parties continued to hit out at the ruling party for undertaking the “bogus” survey only to mislead the people.
BJP chief Amit Shah at a press meet in New Delhi when asked about KCR’s survey that claims the party would win 111 seats out of a total number of 119 seats if elections are held today, said that how can internal surveys would have credibility.
BJP state president K Lakshman and Legislature Party leader G Kishan Reddy alleged that only to divert the attention of the public from fastly eroding his credibility, the Chief Minister has been planting such false surveys.
Both Congress and BJP leaders challenged the Chief Minister to get resignations of `defected’ MLAs and MP and face by-elections if he is confident of winning polls. Congress leaders even suggested early polls to the assembly.
Opposition leader in state Legislative Council Mohd Shabbir Ali asked as to how minister KT Rama Rao, who was given 46 per cent marks in the previous survey, could manage to get 91 per cent marks in the latest survey. “Go in for elections within the next 24 hours or at least ask the MLAs who switched loyalties to TRS from other parties to resign and contest by-polls,” he challenged.
Nalgonda MLA Komatireddy Venkat Reddy dared the CM to ask Nalgonda MP Gutha Sukhender Reddy, who won on Congress ticket but defected to TRS, to resign and contest again. “I challenge that Sukhender Reddy will lose. If not, I will quit politics,” he said.
