Mounting a scathing attack on Telangana’s ruling TRS, Congress president Rahul Gandhi called it the “B team” of the RSS and BJP. “TRS is not Telangana Rashtra Samiti, it’s Telangana Rashtriya Sangh Parivar. It’s a B team of the RSS and BJP,” he told an election rally in the state.
He addressing public meetings in Mahbubnagar and Khammam, lated in the evening in Hyderabad. He was joined by TDP chief and AP Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu at Khammam, besides leaders of other alliance partners in the state, CPI and TJS.
He also assailed the TRS of caretaker Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao for his party’s understanding with AIMIM of Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi, and said the two parties wanted to ensure that the BJP was not defeated in next year’s Lok Sabha polls. “The aim of TRS and AIMIM is to see to it that the Congress is not able to defeat BJP at the national level,” he said.
Strongly rejecting Prime Minister Narendra Modi accusations in the state, a day before Rahul’s visit that TRS is xerox copy of Congress, he asked people to realise who are supporting always BJP in the Parliament, while his party is fighting it out.
“When we were fighting over land acquisition bill in parliament, TRS was helping BJP. TRS helped RSS and Modi in every bill. TRS’ aim is that Congress should not oust the BJP at the national level,” he added. He also recalled that it was TRS that opposed no-confidence motion against Modi government.
Gandhi blamed the Rao-led government of giving employment to his family members while failing to give jobs to crore of unemployed youths. “Every person in Telangana has RS 60,000 debt on them, but KCR’s son’s income is increases by 400%: Congress President” “ While the educated graduates in Telangana are desperately looking for jobs, the KCR government has been imitating PM Modi by creating unemployment.” he added.
