BJP is for development, TRS playing communal politics: Bandi Sanjay
Bandi Sanjay said that KCR was accusing the BJP of communal politics but it was the latter who was bringing religion into politics.
QUTBULLAPUR: BJP Telangana President Bandi Sanjay Kumar on Monday said that the TRS and Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao were accusing the BJP of playing communal politics but it was the latter who was actually bringing religion into politics.
Addressing a public meeting before beginning the fourth phase of his Praja Sangrama Yatra here, he accused the TRS of being evasive and resorting to diversionary tactics whenever the BJP questioned the ruling party on the promises of two BHK houses, farmers' schemes, jobs and salaries, dalit bandhu scheme or pensions. The BJP focuses on development while the TRS is playing religion-oriented politics.
Earlier, Bandi Sanjay visited the Chittaramma temple in the Quthbullapur constituency and offered prayers to the presiding deity there. The BJP state chief said that the first three phases of the yatra were successfully completed despite the hurdles created by the TRS and exuded the confidence that they would complete the fourth phase also even if it meant facing difficulties. BJP activists followed him in a large convoy of vehicles to mark the beginning of the fourth-phase Praja Sangrama Yatra.
Bandi Sanjay felt that nobody in the country would care for KCR's proposed national party, speculated to be named as the Bhartiya Rashtra Samithi (BRS). He also said the recent meeting between former Chief Minister of Karnataka H D Kumaraswamy and KCR was also insignificant as nobody cared for either of them. He asked why political leaders of other States were coming to Telangana to meet the Chief Minister but not speaking to the media.
He also said that Telangana Liberation Day was also being celebrated only because the Centre had officially announced it. He said that the AIMIM was an ally of the TRS and because of that, the Liberation Day was never celebrated.
Bandi Sanjay said that the promise of free electricity, made by KCR, was a lie and that the Chief Minister was taking all the money that the Centre was providing to Telangana. He warned that the BJP would not remain silent if the TRS or the Chief Minister kept accusing the Centre of installing electricity meters only to collect extra taxes.
