Telangana: KTR vows village-wise manifestoes in Kamareddy

Kamareddy: BRS working president K.T. Rama Rao on Saturday promised village-wise poll manifestoes and appointment of senior leaders as booth committee incharges at Kamareddy Assembly constituency, from where Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao will contest the polls.

“Not only Telangana state, the entire country is eagerly waiting to know why KCR chose Kamareddy to contest and the majority he will get. To blank out Opposition parties Congress and BJP leaders, people of Kamareddy should give 1.5 lakh majority to KCR for robust development,” he said.

Rama Rao was speaking at the maiden meeting of the BRS at Government Degree College ground following Rao’s announcement to contest from Kamareddy, apart from Gajwel.

Arriving in a helicopter and addressing party workers, Rama Rao said: “Our forefathers are from Konapur village in Kamareddy district, but we never thought to contest from Kamareddy. After invitation from sitting Kamareddy MLA Gampa Govardhan, the Chief Minister agreed to contest from here.”

Calling on the Kamareddy electorate to set a majority record by voting for Rao, the IT minister said: “We will extend our base to neighbouring Maharashtra state, where people are vexed with the uncertainty in the government and sought a strong leader like KCR. Not only KCR, myself, minister Prashanth Reddy and Gampa Govardhan will work for the development of Kamareddy.”

Rama Rao urged party leaders to set aside their differences and work together for Chandrashekar Rao’s victory.

Sharing an anecdote, Rama Rao said he met a group of youths at Machareddy on his way from Gambhiraopet to Hyderabad, who said they were proud to be a part of the electorate in the Chief Minister’s constituency.

Rama Rao took the chance to attack the Congress, reiterating that TPCC chief A. Revanth Reddy was “a hardcore RSS pracharak and Congress was already dead.”

“If Congress wins 10-12 MLA seats, Revanth Reddy will jump to BJP overnight,” he said.

“When BJP state president G. Kishan Reddy contested from the Karvan Assembly constituency in 1999, Revanth Reddy was his election agent. Revanth Reddy had a great transformation from the ‘voter for note’ status to ‘seat for note’ status by selling MLA tickets,” KTR alleged.

Before addressing the meeting, Rama Rao laid the foundation stone for the construction of an indoor stadium, at Rs 8 crore, in Kamareddy. He was accompanied by minister V. Prashanth Reddy, Government Whip Gampa Govardhan, MP B.B. Patil, municipal chairperson N. Jahnavi, vice-chair Indupriya, BRS district president Mujeebuddin, collector Jitesh V. Patil and SP B. Srinivas, among others.
