KCR sure of BRS win in 95-105 seats,

HYDERABAD: The Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) will retain power by winning 95-105 seats in the ensuing elections, said party supremo and Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao (KCR).

Addressing media at Telangana Bhavan after releasing the first list of candidates here on Monday, he said minimal changes in the list of candidates and the peaceful manner in which the whole process was completed were an indication of victory for BRS.

“The candidates on the list worked amidst people of their constituencies. That is why they have been renominated. And those who could not find their names on the list must not be disheartened, as the party will give them many more opportunities in the future,” KCR said consoling those who could not get the nomination.

Explaining the reason for deciding to contest from Kamareddy in addition to Gajwel, the BRS supremo said that he took the decision following repeated requests by Kamareddy’s present MLA Gampa Govardhan. “He requested and I agreed. There is nothing special about that decision,” he said answering a question.

Exuding confidence that the BRS would win all the 17 MP seats along with its friendly party, All Indian Majlis-E-Ittehadul-Muslimeen (AIMIM), KCR said the friendship with the party from Old City would continue in the future also. “Along with AIMIM, we will win all the 29 assembly seats in Hyderabad and Ranga Reddy districts,” KCR said.

Allaying apprehensions about the pending nominations of Narsapur, Jangaon, Goshamahal, and Nampally Assembly segments, for which the announcement might come after three to four days, KCR said that names for these constituencies were under scrutiny.

Responding to a question on Mynampally Hanumanth Rao’s anti-party stance and his outburst against Finance Minister T Harish Rao, the Chief Minister said that it was up to the Malkajgiri MLA to decide whether to abide by the party line. “Else,I leave it to his decision,” he quipped.

“Anti-party activities will not be tolerated. Those indulging in such activities will be shunted out. We will take decisions based on the winnability of the candidates. We are not running a religious organisation. Ours is a political party and will behave like one, and will make changes in the list if the need arises,” the Chief Minister said.

Making it clear that the flagship programmes undertaken by the Government would be the poll plank of the coming elections, KCR said that false promises made by the Congress and the BJP would not fetch them votes. “Before the last elections, the Congress promised crop loan waiver of Rs 2 lakh and voters did not believe them. We implemented waiver of loans below Rs 1 lakh as promised,” he said.

“We have done many things which are not included in poll promises. Mission Bhagiratha, Kalyana Lakshmi, Rythu Bandhu, Rythu Bima, Dalit Bandhu, KCR kits are a few to name,” he observed.

To maintain the momentum generated by the early declaration of the first list of candidates for the ensuing elections, KCR announced that the party would organise a massive public rally in Warangal on October 16.
