Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday launched a harsh attack against the Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS), which is currently in power in Telangana, and its chief, K Chandrashekar Rao, also known as KCR. He accused them of obstructing development projects at the national scale and engaging in “parivarvaad” (family rule) and corruption.
The state government of Telangana is not collaborating with the central government in the implementation of various programmes and initiatives that would benefit the state’s residents, said Prime Minister Modi, who was speaking at a public rally in Hyderabad.
“I am pained at the non-cooperation of the state government in the centre’s projects. This is affecting the dreams of the people of Telangana. I appeal to the state government to not allow any obstruction in developments being planned for Telangana people,” PM Modi said.
Without taking any names, he appeared to attack KCR and his family, saying, “A handful of people who encourage ‘parivarvaad‘ are trying to see where they can reap benefits from projects being implemented for the people of Telangana.”
“‘Parivarvaad‘ and corruption are not different. Corruption begins to grow where there is ‘parivarvaad‘,” the Prime Minister said, reiterating the BJP’s charges of nepotism and graft in the BRS regime.
The budget for this year included 10 lakh crore for infrastructure modernisation, according to PM Modi, who stated that his government was dedicated to realising the aspirations of the people of Telangana. He declared, “Our NDA government considers it our duty to fulfil Telangana citizens’ dreams.
The Secunderabad-Tirupati Vande Bharat Express was flagged off earlier in the day from the Secunderabad Railway station. At the site of the public meeting, he officially launched and inaugurated a number of infrastructural projects.
