Mallikarjun Kharge calls BRS BJP’s B Team, sees no difference between Modi, KCR
Drawing parlance between Narendra Modi and K Chandrashekar Rao, Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge said that both leaders never keep their promises and always work for the rich and influential people close to them
HYDERABAD: Drawing parlance between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao (KCR), Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge said that both the leaders never keep their promises and always work for the rich and influential people close to them.
Declaring ‘Ryoth Bharosa’ one of the six guarantees declared by the Congress, Kharge said that farmers in Telangana would receive Rs 15,000 per acre under the scheme and tenant farmers and agricultural labour would receive Rs 12,000 and farmers would receive a Rs 500 bonus per quintal of paddy in addition to the minimum support price.
“Congress did whatever it promised, Sonia Gandhi promised Telangana and delivered it. We have implemented many schemes. KCR Government never does what it promised. We bifurcated the State not for the votes but for the people of Telangana. We did struggle for separate Telangana but our efforts went down the drain, “Kharge pointed out.
Kharge alleged that the KCR Government in Telangana went bankrupt with the debt touching Rs 3,67,000 crore. “While Modi sells profit-making public sector units to his close friends, KCR drives State-owned public sector units to sickness and closure. Both BJP and BRS might look different from the outside but they are one and the same because the BRS is the B Team for the BJP,” the Congress president said. Kharge further added that while the rich ran away by defrauding banks to the tune of Rs 40,000 crore, the poor remained poor in the country. “PM Modi promised 2 crore jobs and assured that Rs 15 lakh will be deposited in accounts by bringing black money stashes in other countries. Both Modi and KCR are liars,” he said.
Recalling the words of former Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri who said that Congress had built the nation’s marvels such as education institutions, public sector units and industries, Kharge wanted the people of Telangana to recognise the party that was dedicated to the upliftment of the poor and ensures its victory.
