Urges cadre to win 16 LS seats to play a decisive role at Centre and ensure funds for Telangana

Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) working president K.T. Rama Rao accused the BJP of ruling the nation using caste and religion cards.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had given national project status to Polavaram, but denied the same to Kaleswaram project which is being built at an estimated expenditure of ₹80,000 crore, he said at a party meeting on Wednesday.

Letter to NITI Ayog

Though the government of Telangana had written a letter to NITI Ayog requesting sanction of ₹5,000 crore for Mission Bhagiratha and Mission Kakatiya, it did not respond, he said, while addressing TRS cadres’ preparatory meeting for Lok Sabha elections here.

Therefore, there is an imperative need to give 16 out of 17 Lok Sabha seats to TRS in the ensuing elections to ensure funds from New Delhi. “You give a landslide victory to the TRS for a qualitative change in national politics and to implement KCR’s welfare schemes all over the country,” he said.

Under the Telangana Mission, TRS planned to bag 16 seats and wished that poll percentage would increase in favour of the party. He promised that Nagamadugu LI scheme works would begin soon and efforts would be made to develop Nizamsagar as a tourist place.

Launching a tirade against the Opposition parties, he said that though they spread all lies and levelled allegations against TRS and KCR, people had not believed them and gave mandate to TRS for the second time. ₹ 2,016 pension per month would be given to differently abled, widows, aged persons and beedi workers from June, he said.

Role model

Mr. Rama Rao also said that correction of mistakes in land records, supply of 24-hour uninterrupted free power and sanction of ₹10,000 per acre farm investment free of cost to farmers had gone to the credit of Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao. By introducing these schemes, he became a role model for the entire country, the TRS working president said.

KCR is the son of a farmer and therefore he was making efforts to uplift the farming community. His family lost lands due to construction of an irrigation project.

The Chief Minister wants to redeem debt of farmers by filling Nizamsagar with Godavari waters. Supplying water to one crore acres was the main aim of the TRS government, he said.

He went on to say that residents of 40 villages in Maharashtra bordering the State submitted a memorandum for merger of their villages in Telangana seeing its performance.
