Addressing a BJP rally at Karimnagar on Wednesday, Shah had hit out at caretaker main minister Rao, expressing it has thrust further election expenditure of hundreds of crores of rupees on men and women of the state, which in the normal study course need to have long gone to the polls, together with that of Lok Sabha all through April-May future yr.
Shah also claimed KCR’s go stemmed from the fact that he is “scared” of Modi, suggesting that the Modi aspect would have affected the point out polls, experienced it been held at the same time with Lok Sabha.
The Telangana assembly elections will be held on December 7.
The assembly was dissolved on September 6 on the suggestion of Rao, reducing small the term of the House by approximately 9 months.
Speaking to PTI, Karimnagar Lok Sabha member B Vinod Kumar sought to counter Shah. Kumar, also deputy floor leader of the TRS in the Lok Sabha, reported at some position or the other, leaders, including Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, Atal Bihari Vajpayee, N T Rama Rao and N Chandrababu Naidu, have opted for early elections.
“All political parties have long gone in for early elections some time or other. Even Modi also. Why did Modi go for early elections in 2002? Modi should really remedy 1st. Just like KCR did, he also went for elections in 2002 8 months in advance of the plan. Why Modi went (for early elections)? Which is the reply for KCR also,” he said.
Kumar also responded to Shah’s cost that KCR promised to make a Dalit the main minister before the 2014 elections but did not honour it and also that his agenda now is to make his son (K T Rama Rao) or daughter (K Kavitha) main minister.
Rama Rao was a Cupboard minister in the dissolved assembly, when Kavitha is Lok Sabha member from Nizamabad.
“Amit Shah ought to know that KCR did not make this sort of a statement in the 2014 elections. He manufactured this kind of a assertion through the course of our (Telangana statehood) agitation. At the time of the 2014 elections, we had been pretty distinct that KCR would be our main minister. In 2014, we hardly ever reported (that a Dalit would be designed CM),” Vinod Kumar said.
“Neither a Dalit, nor KTR (as Rama Rao is commonly regarded) nor Kavitha will be on the agenda mainly because KCR will be elected chief minister after once more,” he claimed.
Kumar explained as “really unlucky” Shah’s charge that KCR and Congress president Rahul Gandhi are engaged in ‘break-in-India’, whilst Modi is in ‘make-in-India’ method.
“Supporting minorities and talking for reservations for minorities… does it signify break in India?” he asked.
On Shah’s charge that the KCR federal government experienced failed to fulfill its election guarantees, Kumar explained, “Not at all. We have fulfilled all our election guarantees manufactured in 2014. We have finished a lot a lot more. We have also executed what we have not promised in 2014. We have done a lot more than what we have promised.”
Requested about the notion in some political circles that TRS and BJP have a tacit understanding, Kumar was emphatic in denying it. “Not at all. We are not likely to have any political alliance, either with the BJP or Congress in foreseeable future also,” he asserted.
