Senior Congress leader Bakka Judson revealed that the State government had mortgaged the Warangal Central prison land to the Bank of Maharashtra for Rs 1,150 crore. The government had started the construction of a multi super-speciality hospital on the land after vacating the prison. The loan was taken in the name of Telangana Super-speciality Hospitals Corporation Limited managing director Dr K Ramesh Reddy from Bank of Maharashtra, Lokmangal, Shivaji Nagar, Pune Branch on September 1, 2022. Judson showed the copies of mortgage documents to the media persons in Hanumakonda.
Judson accused Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao of plundering the assets of Telangana and taking commissions from availing loans for the construction of multi super-speciality hospitals. He also accused the BJP-led central Government of providing clandestine support to the BRS and doubling the burden of the people. Judson lodged a complaint with the RBI about the misuse of loans fetched by the BRS government.
Judson criticized KCR for not fulfilling his promise to allocate Rs 100 crore each to Osmania and Gandhi hospitals in Hyderabad and for neglecting the MGM Hospital which is lacking proper infrastructure. Patients at MGM Hospital have been facing rat-bite menace, but the government didn’t take any measures to address it. Congress Warangal spokesperson Md Ankus was present with Judson.
