Kodangal (Telangana), Nov 28 Calling the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) the “B-team” of Sangh Pariwar, Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday accused it of helping the Modi government to prevent the Congress from ousting the BJP at the Centre.
Gandhi accused the Telangana government led by K. Chandrashekar Rao of “failing” to keep its promises and appealed to the people to vote for the Congress, claiming that only his party can ensure development in the state.
“When we were fighting over land acquisition bill in parliament, TRS was helping BJP. TRS helped RSS and Modi in every bill. TRS is not Telangana Rashtra Samithi, it is Telangana Rashtra Sanghpariwar. It is the ‘B-team’ of Sangh Pariwar. TRS’ aim is that Congress should not oust the BJP at the national level,” Gandhi told a public rally.
Gandhi blamed the Rao-led government of giving employment to his family members while failing to give jobs to crore of unemployed youths.
“How many people got employment in the last four years of KCR? He only gave employment to four people of his family who snatched the employment of four crore people in the state. What did he do for the women who are the backbone of the state?
“KCR promised to provide 22 lakh double bedroom houses. But the reality is only 5,000 houses have been built. He promised land to SC/ST which has turned out to be a hollow promise.”
If the Congress came to power, Gandhi said people would get land and houses. “Our Chief Minister will give youths employment or Rs 3,000 allowance. In the first year, our government will give employment to 1 lakh youths in private and government sectors.”
Gandhi assured people free medical treatment up to Rs 5 lakh and said a 30-bed hospital would be set up in each “Mandal”. The state is set for Assembly polls on December 7. – IANS
