Abolition of the Agnipath scheme, stopping privatisation of the Life Insurance Corporation, 35% reservation for women in legislative bodies, free power supply to the agriculture sector, implementation of Dalit Bandhu across the country and restoration of the Visakha steel plant to the public sector are a few policies that will be implemented across the country if the Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) is voted to power in the next Parliament elections, as announced by its president and Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao at a massive public meeting in Khammam today.
Addressing the meeting, the BRS president lashed out at the Centre for "failing to address the basic needs of the people and for implementing anti-people policies".
"Today, India is seeking loans and help from the USA and other countries despite having huge assets and an abundance of resources. Geographically USA is a big country, but it has only 29% of farmland. China has only 16% farmland. In India, of 83 crore acres of land, 41 crore acres is cultivable land, with an availability of 1.4 lakh TMC of water. While 50% of available water evaporates, we have another 70 TMCs of water for utilisation. We have land, water, solar power and humid weather conditions. India is only the country where both apples and mangos are grown. Besides, the country is blessed with 139 crore hard-working manpower. Unfortunately, we are eating pizza and burgers. We can develop wonderful food chains and food processing units, and create jobs. But due to the bad policies of the union government, we are not utilising our resources, and are forced to import pulses and palm oil from other countries," KCR lamented.
He also accused the union government of failing to resolve the river-water-sharing disputes between riparian States.
"Tribunals have been constituted to resolve water disputes between the States. But we don't know when the issues will be resolved. When will we complete all the projects and provide irrigation water and improve agriculture?" he asked.
He added that the country was being run without having any aims and objectives. "India is facing a peculiar situation, and has lost direction under the current BJP government at the Centre. Like the Telangana movement, the BRS will take up another movement in India to achieve the country's goals. Otherwise, we will not move forward," KCR said.
