KARIMNAGAR: TRS president K. Chandrasekhar Rao said, the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) will not win more than 200 seats.

“Some people are trying to predict that a BJP alliance will form government at the Centre. Many newspapers have carried articles supporting the argument. But the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) will not win more than 200 seats in the polls,” he said.

“Many experts and political analysts feel that India will shortly become a confederation of regional parties, but no national party can become a major force,” he explained.

Lashing out at the Telugu Desam, he asked, “Do we require a Seemandhra party (TD) in Telangana.”

He alleged that the Congress could not produce tall leaders. Some Congress leaders in Telangana had “taken part in the sins committed by Y.S. Rajasekhar Reddy,” he said.

He said, the Congress leaders had not responded when the then Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy had said he would not allocate funds to the region. “They were hosting dinners when we were staging Sakala Janula Samme,” he claimed.

Earlier, he landed in the city in a chartered helicopter at the collectorate and drove to his residence located in Teegalaguttapally in the city. After spending some time there, he reached the venue at around 7 pm.

He said, the TRS will give 12 per cent reservation to the Muslim community. The TRS political manifesto includes better housing, improved quality of education, and 24x7 power supply to farmers.

He claimed that he would strive to implement the assurances given in the manifesto. He promised that the TRS would build a golden Telangana. Reading out the sops mentioned in the manifesto, he said that the TRS would strive to provide better housing, quality education and improved irrigation facilities. Tax on transport would be waived, he said.

He said, a TRS government would offer free education from the KG to the PG level. “Just like sons and daughters of the elite have access to high quality education, the children of economically poor deserve the same,” he explained.
