KCR silent on Modi's criticism, says will expand party in UP, MP soon

Hyderabad: Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao maintained silence on Prime Minister Narendra Modi's criticism of his government at the BJP's public meeting in Warangal on Saturday. Rao addressed a meeting at Telangana Bhavan on Saturday evening after admitting leaders and workers from political parties in Maharashtra into the BRS.

Rao confined his address to explaining his plans to expand the BRS nationwide, and that his next focus area would be Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh after Maharashtra.

The CM told party leaders about his plans to hold a public meeting in Solapur soon.

"This public meeting will be held on a grand scale in 50 acres with lakhs of people. The date will be finalised soon. I will send Harish Rao to Solapur a week before the meeting to make necessary arrangements," Rao said.

He took a dig at the ongoing political developments in Maharashtra. "Politics right now is about running after power. Leaders are resorting to splitting their own parties and defecting from one party to the other for power and positions. People in the country are keenly watching the political development in Maharashtra," Rao stated.

He promised to implement the "Telangana model" of welfare schemes and development programmes in Maharashtra if BRS is voted to power.
