Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) ally in Telangana, the Bharatiya Rashtra Samithi (BRS), has criticized Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his statement on the state’s non-cooperation with the Centre. In a recent virtual rally, PM Modi had accused the Telangana government of not implementing several central schemes and policies, which has hindered the state’s development. However, BRS leaders have accused the PM of spreading negativity and not acknowledging the state’s progress.
The BRS leaders have defended the Telangana government’s stand by stating that the state has been implementing several welfare schemes that have benefited the people. They have also pointed out that the Centre has not released the funds for many of its schemes, which has caused delays in their implementation. Additionally, they have criticized PM Modi for not recognizing the state’s progress in various sectors such as agriculture, irrigation, and power.
The criticism by BRS leaders has created a rift between the BJP and its ally in Telangana. The BJP has been trying to expand its presence in the state, which has been dominated by regional parties such as the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) and the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM). However, with the BRS openly criticizing the PM’s statement, it remains to be seen how this will affect the BJP’s prospects in the state.
In conclusion, while PM Modi’s statement on Telangana’s non-cooperation may have been intended to highlight the state’s lagging development, it has instead sparked criticism from his own ally. The BRS leaders’ defense of the Telangana government’s stand and their accusations of spreading negativity may have implications for the BJP’s attempts to expand its presence in the state. It remains to be seen how this situation will unfold in the coming days.
