People lost trust in BRS and its manifesto: Uttam
Hyderabad: Congress MP and Huzurnagar candidate N. Uttam Kumar Reddy said the BRS had lost the trust of the people who were not willing believing the promises made in its manifesto for the November 30 Assembly elections.
Speaking to media persons on the sidelines of various election meetings in Huzurnagar on Tuesday, Uttam Kumar Reddy, a former TPCC president, said that no one would believe Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao as he failed to deliver on the promises made in 2014 and 2018 Assembly polls.
"KCR has deceived the people with fake promises and false assurances in the last two elections. Therefore, people are not willing to undergo the same experience in these elections," he said adding that he was confident that the people would elect the Congress to power.
Uttam Kumar Reddy reminded that the TRS (now BRS) had released a 32-page manifesto with 75 major promises for the 2014 elections, including free KG to PG education, 2BHK houses, 12 per cent reservation for Muslims and STs, and three acres of land for Dalits and STs, etc.
Those promises were incredibly appealing, and people voted in favour of the BRS. Rao used similar deceptive tactics during the 2018 elections even as the manifesto shrank to pages with 24 major promises. It made promises like Rs 3,016 allowance to the jobless youth were made and none of them were fulfilled, Uttam Kumar Reddy said.
"Having realised that he won't be able to cheat the common people again, this time, KCR has confined his manifesto to a single page with just16 promises. However, people won't trust him as they have been deceived twice," he said.
