Prime Minister Narendra Modi, during his campaign trail in Telangana on Monday, ahead of the Assembly elections in the state on Thursday, said that he was seeing winds of change blowing across the state and the next five years were crucial for the development of Telangana.
“For the first time a BJP government will be formed in Telangana and a BC will be the Chief Minister. The people of Karimnagar have shown the trailer to Chief Minister and BRS president K. Chandrasekhar Rao—the trailer of defeat in the Huzurabad byelection. Now in the Assembly elections you are going to send him home. Forming BJP government in Telangana is very important as in 2024 BJP will come to power at the Centre again and having a double engine government will speed up development and progress in the state,” said the PM.
The Prime Minister visited the Sri Venkateswara Swamy temple in Hyderabad in the morning, after which he held public meetings at Mahabubnagar and Karimnagar, before participating in a mega road show in Hyderabad.
“We will show how Telangana will become number one in the country. You cannot leave the future of Telangana to fate. We have to take care. For us the development of the nation, by including every state is important. Whenever you tell people you have voted for development, for the pride of the nation, for public support and welfare of the poor, the only name that comes to the mind of the people is BJP. I am seeing the winds of change,” he said while addressing a public meeting.
“TRS and Congress did not leave any opportunity to cheat you. Corruption and appeasement are the names of the parties that will come to your mind. There is no guarantee that Congress MLAs will remain with the party. They will join the BRS. If you wish to send BRS home then vote for BJP,” the PM urged, adding that the Congress had humiliated the late Prime Minister P.V. Narasimha Rao when he was alive and after his death.
“Both BRS and Congress are family parties and they can think of only their family members on the top post but not your children. They will destroy your children’s future of. Both parties are the same. Be careful with them. Only the BJP can increase the pride of Telangana. Family parties will not care even for laws. The PFI has reared its head here.
This area also witnessed Naxalite violence. We put a firm foot down on it and KCR took the advantage,” he said.
Recalling Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao’s promise of transforming Karimnagar to London, the Prime Minister wondered what happened to that.
“Chandrasekhar Rao is firm believer in tantriks. Someone told him that even the shadow of Modi will destroy your dreams and since then he is avoiding to meet me. How will a person like that make your dreams true?” asked Modi and urged the people to vote for BJP for fast growth and development.
