BRS may Split at any Moment, Claims Bandi Sanjay

PM Modi had claimed that Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao had sought to join the NDA alliance

Karimnagar: Former state BJP chief and Karimnagar MP Bandi Sanjay Kumar on Wednesday claimed that the BRS was mired in infighting and that the ruling party may split into multiple factions at any moment, following Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s revelations about the party.

In a speech in Nizamabad on Tuesday, Modi had claimed that Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao had sought to join the NDA alliance and also sought his blessings to make K.T. Rama Rao the next chief minister, but he had denied both requests.

Citing the same, Sanjay Kumar said: “Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao is missing for the past 15 days. People are suspecting the hand of Rama Rao in KCR’s disappearance. KTR must present KCR to the public and must prove his claims that Modi’s statements were wrong by promising at the Bhagya Laxmi temple.”

Sanjay Kumar said that BRS MLAs were contemplating their course of action, with many apprehensive that they might night even get back their deposits if they fought the elections under Rama Rao’s leadership. “Many BRS MLAs are wishing to join BJP, unable to adjust with KTR for his arrogant behaviour,” he said.

Highlighting BJP’s allotments to the state, he said: “In nine years, the BJP government allotted Rs 9 lakh crore for various developmental and welfare schemes in Telangana state. Instead of thanking Modi and BJP government, KTR is trying to spread false propaganda.”

“If Ajay Rao (KTR’s old name) is very much worried about the people of Telangana and considers them as his family, then why not make a Dalit the Chief Minister of the state?” he questioned.

Sanjay Kumar reiterated Modi’s claim that the BRS secured victory for Congress in Karnataka. “By inviting the leaders of Karnataka state in special flights, the BRS sent bags of money and supported the Congress leaders in their victory in the Karnataka Assembly elections,” he said.

“Before becoming the CM, how much wealth did KCR have and after becoming, how much has he gathered? KCR is ready to spend money on other states to damage the image of the BJP. One of the senior journalists of the nation also revealed this,” he said.

Calling Rama Rao a “tourist”, the MP questioned why the minister was commenting on Modi while Chandrashekar Rao was touring Delhi, Bihar and Maharashtra.

“The BRS government is showing discrimination against Hindus by allotting eight acres for masjids and only five acres for a temple in Karimnagar district. Why is the government not sanctioning funds for renovation of the several Hindu temples which are in dilapidated condition?” he questioned.

Sanjay Kumar said that the party was also being supported by Muslim women as the BJP did away with triple talaq and introduced the women’s reservation bill.

“Without the support of the MIM, the BRS cannot go alone in the elections. If BJP would not have existed in Karimnagar district, then with the support of BRS, MIM would have encroached on the entire district and created ruckus,” he said.

Claiming that a vote for BRS would be equivalent to sanctioning “looting of the state by KCR and family”, Bandi Sanjay appealed to the public to vote the BJP into power.
