Hyderabad | 30th November 2018
Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, campaigning for the BJP in Hanamkonda, Warangal, for the upcoming Telangana Assembly elections, today claimed that the Telangana people were disenchanted with both the Congress-led alliance (of the Congress, the TDP, the TRS and the CPI) against the TRS, and the TRS.
Criticising the TRS government, Singh alleged that KCR had failed to keep his word to provide double bedroom houses to the poor and housing plots to journalists, and on many other issues.
He said that the three states created by the Vajpayee government (Jharkhand, Chattisgarh and Uttarakhand) were progressing rapidly, but that Telangana was lagging behind. He also asked why 4,500 people had committed suicide in the state if KCR's claim of development was true.
Singh also took a dig at Rahul Gandhi and the "unimaginative" Congress, saying that from Gandhi's promise to set up a potato factory, one could imagine the vision of the Congress for the state.
He claimed that BJP, unlike the TRS, would walk the talk, and that the people were supporting the BJP for its developmental works. It was during Vajpayee's regime that 4-lane, 6-lane and rural roads were developed, and that the Modi government was also working with the same spirit and had made the Indian economy the sixth largest in the world.
Singh also stated that the safety and security of the nation and its people was the top-most priority of the BJP, and added that if one bullet was fired from Pakistan, India would retaliate so fiercely that one might not be able to count the number of bullets shot by India.
Emphasizing on the importance of Warangal for the BJP, Singh said that Hanamkonda gave the BJP its first MP in the Lok Sabha elections, Chandupatla Janga Reddy, in 1984 (the BJP won two seats in the Lok Sabha elections of 1984, its first ever Lok Sabha election wins).
The BJP-led government at the Centre would never forget Warangal's contribution to the party, Singh said, and pointed out that the Centre had granted Smart City, Amrut City and Heritage City projects for Warangal's development.
He appealed to the people to vote for the BJP candidate M Dharma Rao, and promised to come back to Warangal after Rao's victory.
