HYDERABAD: BJP state president Bandi Sanjay on Friday urged people to vote for the BJP to see the double-engine growth in the state and assured them that his party would give democratic and corruption-free governance in the state.

Speaking during the padayatra, Sanjay said Chandrashekar Rao diverted people’s attention from power tariffs by creating a controversy over paddy procurement. He said Chandrashekar Rao has imposed Rs 6,000 crore burden on people in the form of power charges and said his party would agitate against the hike.
He alleged that the TRS government is minting money by extracting a commission from the central government funds allotted to projects in Telangana state.
He said that the RDS scheme would become a reality in the undivided Mahabubnagar district only when Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao was ousted from power.
