Hyderabad | 11th December 2018
After winning 88 seats and thereby a two-thirds majority in the December 7 Assembly elections in Telangana, a jubilant TRS chief and caretaker Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao today attributed the party's huge success to all the sections of the people including the women, the youth, the farmers and the minorities among others.
He also said that the first elections in the infant state would also alter national politics.
Speaking to media persons at Telangana Bhavan in Hyderabad today, KCR thanked the people of the state for the resounding mandate given to his party. "I addressed some 116 meetings and appealed to the people, and they supported us in the poll fray unmindful of the malafide charges and vilification campaigns of AICC leaders Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi, and BJP leaders starting right from Prime Minister Narendra Modi and some union ministers. The mature people of Telangana applied their minds and gave a fresh mandate to us, and I cannot thank them enough," he said.
He also thanked his party leaders and activists for their efforts over the last three months, and also added a note of caution, saying, "Let us not become proud and headstrong about the victory as that will not win the hearts of the masses."
Speaking of the plans of the TRS for Telangana, KCR said, "We feel more responsible now as we have been trusted with a second mandate. The next dispensation will focus on the issues of the tribals, the non-tribals, the poor, beedi workers, and those in the handicrafts and community professions, and these issues will be addressed using modern tools. Jobs and employment will be provided to the youth who are feeling deprived, and all the necessary steps will be taken in a speedy manner. An expeditious plan will be implemented to fill all the vacant posts in the government and the private sectors. Arograsri will be used even more effectively to help more people in need of affordable healthcare. Minorities will get total support, and there will be focus on the development of the dalits and to end poverty in all the communities."
Claiming that the TRS government had already brought 8.5 lakh acres in Palamur under irrigation, KCR vowed to bring one crore acres of land under irrigation in this term.
KCR profusely thanked MIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi for his secular ideals, and slammed the Congress for making baseless charges against the party. He asserted that Owaisi was not a fundamentalist but a secular person. "Along with Owaisi, I will engage all the groups of the nation to create a federal front for bringing about a positive change. We need to make it to national level," he averred.
He vowed to get the world's largest democracy rid of the two prominent national parties, the BJP and the Congress, through his efforts for the federal front.
