Hyderabad: PCC Chief A Revanth Reddy criticized Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Mahbubnagar, claiming that it was part of a plan by the BJP and BRS to divide the opposition’s votes and help BRS win in the Assembly polls. He believed that the money spent on Modi’s visit could have been used for the development of the Palamuru district.
During a press conference, Revanth expressed disappointment with Modi’s speech, stating that it lacked the same aggression he shows towards the Congress. He accused Modi of failing to address important issues such as the Kaleshwaram project and the liquor scam, as well as failing to promise to expose Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao’s corruption. Revanth believed that Modi’s visit was a clear attempt to divide the opposition’s votes and ensure BRS’s victory.
Revanth challenged Modi and KCR to an open debate on the implementation of their poll promises during their respective rules. He asked if they were ready to discuss the achievements and failures of their ten-year rule versus Congress’s ten-year rule.
Revanth criticized Modi’s visit for not providing any substantial benefits to the state. He hoped that the Prime Minister would declare national status for the Palamuru-Rangareddy project and fulfill the assurances made in the AP Reorganisation Act. He also highlighted that promises such as the Turmeric Board and Tribal University were not new.
Revanth accused Modi of showing bias against the people of Telangana, as the BJP government had failed to fulfill promises made during the state’s bifurcation, including the provision of a Railway Coach factory. He mentioned that even BJP leaders like Vivek, Konda Vishweshwar Reddy, Vijaya Shanti, and Rajgopal Reddy did not attend Modi’s public meeting, citing his previous remarks belittling the formation of Telangana as a reason.
