While addressing a public rally ahead of the Lok Sabha elections in Telangana's Nizamabad on Tuesday, Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) Member of Parliament (MP) K Kavitha said, "Be it Congress or Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), we gave them 70 years but they left basic issues unattended. Today, what this country needs are people who can serve the public of this country, what is needed are people who can actually work and not simply talk." "Country needs strong regional parties. If their stakes rise, all states will be benfitted. BJP and Congress failed to use opportunities. They don't work for 5 years. 'Jo kaam nahi karta hai wo Ram ka sahara leta hai.' It's time we discard such political parties," she added.
