Launching a strong attack on the Chief Minister of the state K Chandrashekar Rao, MP and former Congress president Rahul Gandhi today said that the state was not formed for the benefit of only one person.
He made these remarks while addressing a massive public meeting, Rythu Sangharshana Sabha, held at the Arts College grounds of Hanumakonda.
Gandhi said that scores of people of the state had sacrificed their lives for the formation of the state, and that the Congress and its president Sonia Gandhi had created Telangana state after seeing the sacrifices of the people of the region.
He said that the Congress had created Telangana state despite clearly knowing that it would suffer huge political losses, since their main priority was to fulfil the dreams of the people of the State.
He said that KCR was however now ruling the State like a king and not like an elected CM, and had deprived the people of all the benefits that should have accrued to them from the creation of the State.
Earlier, Gandhi landed at the Shamshabad international airport in the afternoon. TPCC A Revanth Reddy and CLP leader Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka accorded a warm welcome to the former Congress president. He then reached Warangal in a special chopper to take part in the public meeting.
