Khammam (Telangana) [India]: Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) working president and Minister KT Rama Rao (KTR) slammed the Congress party for resorting to implausible promises in an attempt to deceive the people of Telangana into voting for it.
He said that the Congress party, which has been in existence for 150 years, has essentially become obsolete and compared it to a lifeless skeleton.
Addressing mammoth gatherings in Telangana’s Khammam and Sathupalli towns after participating in various development works, he appealed to the crowd to vote for CM Kalvakuntla Chandrashekar Rao (KCR) and become a part of Telangana’s growth story.
After unveiling the statue of the legendary actor and former Andhra CM NT Rama Rao in Khammam, Minister KTR said that NTR brought pride to the Telugu people in the country, and now, CM KCR is making the entire nation look at Telangana with astonishment.
He further added that NTR was a great actor and a leader, but could not become a hat-trick CM. His follower KCR will become a hat-rick CM with all the love and support from people and blessings of NT Rama Rao, said KTR.
Attacking the Congress party at the meeting, the BRS Working President ridiculed their six guarantees and said “Congress is functioning under three commands – low command in Telangana, new command in Bengaluru, and high command in New Delhi. They don’t have any coordination amongst themselves.”
KTR also said that the Congress’s warranty has expired, and their guarantees should not be taken seriously.
“Congress party was born 150 years ago, and the party’s warranty is over, it’s like a dead skeleton,” said KTR.
While expressing apprehensions on six guarantees promised by the Congress, KTR said, “If Congress is given a chance to govern, three things would happen for the guarantee a limited three-hour daily power supply, an annual rotation of the Chief Minister’s position, and an increase in corruption scandals within the state.”
Regarding the visits of Congress leaders to the state, KTR drew a comparison to the timing of these visits, likening them to singers who arrive at homes just before the Sankranthi festival. He cautioned, “These leaders primarily engage in making false promises” and urged the public to “exercise caution and not be deceived by their rhetoric”.
KTR also said that the Congress leaders were selling tickets for crores of rupees and would sell the State in the future if given a chance.
He further mentioned that Congress is a party that gave Rs 200 as pension for six decades and now they are promising to give Rs 4000 as a pension. People are not ready to trust Congress leaders and their false promises, he said.
“Congress leaders failed to provide uninterrupted power supply during their term, but now accuse us of not providing power. I request them to come and hold a current wire anywhere in the State and check for themselves if the current is being supplied or not,” said KTR.
“CM KCR is giving pensions to senior citizens, widows, and physically challenged persons, helping them to live with self-esteem,” said KTR. He stated that no Congress or BJP-led state government is giving pension amounts to physically challenged persons which is on par with Telangana.
