Laxman hit out at false propaganda of BRS
Hyderabad: BJP OBC morcha national president Dr. K. Laxman denied having made any statement in 2018 that the BJP would extend support to the BRS and dismissed this as a false propaganda.
In a media release here on Wednesday, he said, “K.T. Rama Rao is known for giving false statements and his family for spreading lies. It is shameful that they are resorting to such false propaganda. Such behavior typifies BRS leaders whereas the BJP is a party committed to a cause and works for the welfare of the people.”
Taking to X, Rama Rao shared screen shots of the news articles and videos where Laxman was found saying they would support the BRS.
The video shows that when asked if the party would support Congress or BRS in case of a political need, Laxman is heard saying, “There is no question of joining the Congress party’s alliance. There are clear signs that support of BJP is needed for the formation of a government in Telangana. The leadership in Delhi has taken cognizance of the situation. We will discuss it after the election results.”
Rao said in his Tweet, “The BRS has never allied with anyone during polls ever since Telangana was formed despite several requests. In fact it is the opposition that have come together setting aside their ideological differences to defeat the formidable KCR garu in 2018, Biggest Jhoota Party through its state president Dr K. Laxman sent feelers to ally with BRS. Could the offer have been made without the approval of his Delhi bosses? Why should BRS ally with a party which didn’t even get deposits in 105-assembly segments? Why does BRS need support of BJP in GHMC elections when we had the strength to form on our own? We are fighters not cheaters (sic).”
Laxman further said “They allied with the AIMIM in the GHMC polls and secured the mayor post. With the BJP winning the by-polls, the party allied with the CPI, CPM during the Munugode polls and secured a win there”, he said.
