KCR Trying To Cheat Again With Promises: Congress, BJP
The parties said that the TRS hadn't fulfilled even a single promise made in its manifesto for the 2014 elections, and a new set of promises now was just a mockery of the electorate.
Hyderabad | 17th October 2018
Congress Manifesto Committee co-convener Komatireddy Venkat Reddy today alleged that the ruling TRS had copied the Congress manifesto, joining a growing list of Telangana Congress and mahakootami leaders who have been saying the same.
Reminding people of Telangana caretaker Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao's statement that the total budget of all the states of South India would not be enough to fulfill the promises being made by the Congress, Komatireddy wondered how the same person had now copied the same Congress manifesto. He also asked KCR how the latter had included an allowance to unemployed youth in his party's manifesto when he (KCR) had himself stated earlier that it was not possible.
Komatireddy also alleged that the TRS government had failed to fulfill even a single promise made in its manifesto for the 2014 elections, and a new set of promises now was just a mockery of the electorate. No farmer would believe KCR's Rs 1 lakh loan waiver assurance given what KCR did with waivers in his term, Komatireddy claimed, and said that in any case the Congress had promised to waive off loans of upto Rs 2 lakhs in one go if it came to power.
He also said that the Congress would review the decisions taken by the KCR government immediately after coming to power.
Telangana TDP president L Ramana and TDP politburo member Ravula Chandrasekhar Reddy too called the partial manifesto released by KCR a Xerox copy of the Mahakootami manifesto.
Separately, Telangana BJP leader G Kishan Reddy too alleged that KCR was once again deceiving the people of Telangana with his manifesto for the Assembly elections. KCR was not bothering about his previous election promises and was now making new ones, Reddy said, showing his (KCR's) seriousness. He specifically asked the TRS chief about his promise to build one lakh double bedroom houses in Hyderabad.
Reddy accused both the Congress and the TRS of making impractical promises and of failing to fulfill their previous promises. He also pointed out that Telangana's debt at the time of bifurcation was Rs 63 lakh crores, but had increased to Rs 1.70 lakh crores in the last four years. He alleged that the Congress and the TRS were both vying for power by any means, without any concern for the health of the state or the welfare of the people.
