The minister for Panchayat Raj and IT K. Taraka Rama Rao has played his father Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao’s role at Jodeghat on the occasion of Komaram Bheem’s 75th death anniversary.
Last year, Chief Minister Chandrasekhar Rao attended the same event and promised to develop the Jodeghat as tourist place and subsequently sanctioned Rs 25 crore.
In his speech, Rama Rao said Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao has gone to Delhi to meet the Prime Minister Narendra Modi otherwise he would have attended the Komaram Bheems’ death anniversary and KCR asked the ministers including himself must attend the event.
Along with other Ministers, Ramarao inaugurated Jal, Jaungle and Jameen arch constructed at the Jodeghat and had meal along with Komaram Sonerao, grandson of late Komaram Bheem.
The kind of security measures made for the KTR at the event reminded the security arrangements generally made for Chandrasekhar Rao. It was quite clear that Taraka Ramarao was a big figure on the dais though there were other three ministers and MLAs on the dais.
Taraka Ramarao begun his speech with greeting the Adivasis in their Gondi language saying ‘Sandirkin Nava Ramaram’ and got good response from the public. He personally received petitions from Adivasi leaders and various organizations and posed for photographs with Adivasi women on the dais. Even, Ramarao had interacted with the Adivasi leaders who put their demands before him.
