Hyderabad, December 3: Contesting for the second time for a top post in the state, Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao hits out at Bharatiya Janata Party and Congress for being alleged of forming federal front to become prime minister in 2019. Answering to the allegations, he stated ‘I'm a warrior, not a beggar’.
The BJP has previously alleged that KCR dissolved the state Assembly and meeting West Bengal counterpart Mamata Banerjee as he has PM ambitions. Reverting, KCR said on Sunday, as NDTV reports, “I'm not doing this for the sake of becoming the Prime Minister. I'm doing this for the sake of a change in the country. I'm a warrior, not a beggar. Now I want to change in Indian politics, I'll do my best.” PM Modi, KCR Make Tall Promises, Keep None: Ghulam Nabi Azad
The Telangana Rashtra Samithi chief was of the opinion the federal front is required to change the condition of the country and it would start from Hyderabad. He stated that for doing this, the country doesn’t need BJP or Congress. He said. “India needs to change and the beginning will be from Hyderabad.”
Asked which party – BJP and Congress – is worse, TRS supremo said both are more than worse. He said, “Both are more than worse, they are about centralising powers. They are not doing what they should do. I am very clear in my mind, we will not align with anybody, we will align with the masses of India.”
Sharing his opinion on political rival Telegu Desam Party chief N Chandrababu Naidu, KCR accused him of being the ‘B Team of the BJP’. The Telangana CM even opined that his AP counterpart has ‘no policy at all’ to contest in the Assembly elections.
Claiming the TRS will sweep the Assembly elections by a landslide margin, KCR said, “We will win this election. It will be a landslide victory.” The Assembly elections in the state for 119 seats will take place on Friday, whose results will be declared on December 11.
