Union Minister Rajeev Chandrashekhar on Friday attacked the Congress and said the party is turning every state into its “ATM”.
“Everybody knows that the KCR govt is coming to an end. Now Congress thinks that it will emerge as an alternative. Regarding their guarantee game which they played in Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Karnataka, the truth is that they haven’t fulfilled a single promise/guarantee that they made,” Chandrashekhar told reporters in Telangana’s Hyderabad.
“Wherever there is the Congress government, youth unemployment prevails. There is less investment and job creation. There is a hike in inflation, and Congress is turning every state into its ATM”, he added.
Speaking on the forthcoming Telangana assembly polls, the Union Minister said, “I would request the people of Telangana to put an end to the exploitation by the KCR government and the previous Congress government”.
Earlier today, the BJP released its fifth list of 14 candidates for the upcoming assembly elections in Telangana.
The party has fielded Ramchander Rao from Malkajgiri and Deshpande Rajeshwar Rao from Sangareddy.
Ramchander Rao is a member of the BJP Executive Committee and President of the BJP’s Hyderabad unit. He is also a member of the Bar Council of India. He served as the Member of Telangana Legislative Council (MLC) for Hyderabad, Ranga Reddy and Mahabubnagar Graduates’ Constituency from 2015 to 2021.
Similarly, Deshpande Rajeshwar Rao is a BJP State Executive member.
Earlier on November 7, the BJP released its fourth list of candidates. The list comprised of 12 names including prominent leaders like former Karimnagar and former Zilla Parishad Chairperson Tula Uma (Vemulawada) and Bomma Sriram Chakravarthy (Husnabad).
On Thursday, the Central Election Committee of the Congress Party released its final list of candidates for the ensuing elections to the Telangana assembly.
The party has fielded Katta Sreenivas Goud from Patancheru Assembly constituency, Mohammed Mujeeb Ullah Shareef in Charminar, Bathula Laxma Reddy in Miryalaguda, Ramreddy Damodar Reddy in Suryapet and Mandula Samual in Thungathurthi constituency (which is a reserved seat for the SC community).
Telangana is set to witness a triangular contest between the BJP, the ruling Bharat Rashtra Samithi, and the Congress in the upcoming assembly election.
Telangana will go to assembly elections on November 30 and counting of votes, along with those of four other poll-bound states, has been scheduled for December 3.
In the previous Assembly election in the state in 2018, the Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS), previously known as Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS), won 88 of the 119 seats, hogging 47.4 per cent of the total vote share. The Congress came in a distant second with just 19 seats
