Hyderabad, 22 November (IANS). To give impetus to the BJP’s campaign for the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) elections, Union Environment and Forests, Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar issued the party’s charge sheet against the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) government.
As per the document, the Aropa Patra lists 60 failures of the state government during the last six years and the plight of Greater Hyderabad under the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS). It also mentions incomplete promises made by the ruling party in the last elections.
Speaking on the occasion, Javadekar exuded confidence that the BJP would repeat a Dubbak-like victory in the GHMC elections. He was referring to the party’s victory in the by-election in Dubbak assembly seat recently.
He said, BJP is going to repeat the story in Hyderabad which happened in Dubbak by-election.
The Union Minister also pulled TRS for collusion with All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM).
He said, people have to decide whether they want the mayor of BJP or AIMIM. Voting for Congress and TRS means voting for AIMIM and voting for AIMIM means voting for partition.
He claimed that the people of Hyderabad have decided to elect a BJP leader as the city’s mayor.
Elections for the 150-member GHMC are scheduled on 1 December.
The minister alleged that Chief Minister K.K. Both Chandrasekhar Rao and AIMIM President Asaduddin Owaisi are trying to maintain family rule.
He said, the wealth of KCR and his friends is increasing, but the wealth of the people of Telangana is decreasing.
He said that BJP has also played an important role in the formation of Telangana state.
He also said that TRS had promised to develop Hyderabad as a global city, but made it a flood city. Javadekar mentioned the city being in flood for 15 days. He alleged that the TRS government failed to provide a proper drainage system in the city.
He also alleged that half of the flood relief money went to the TRS leaders’ pockets.
Javadekar wanted to know what happened to TRS’s promises of giving a house with one lakh jobs and two lakh double bed rooms. The Union Minister said, he promised two lakh houses, but did not build even a thousand houses. The Narendra Modi government has built 2.5 crore houses.
Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Kishan Reddy, BJP’s Telangana unit president Bundi Sanjay Kumar, party’s national vice president D.K. Aruna, BJP OBC Morcha President K.K. Laxman and other leaders were also present.
