Hyderabad: Union minister of state for home G. Kishan Reddy said that Telangana state must be freed from the bonds of the TRS and the Majlis-e-Ittihadul Muslimeen. The state, he said, was not the property of the Owaisi family. TRS supremo and Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao was “carrying the Owaisi brothers with him,” he said.

The BJP, he claimed, is not against Muslims, but is against the MIM that indulges in “atrocities.” The minister was speaking while campaigning for the municipal elections in Nalgonda on Monday.


Mr Reddy alleged that the TRS and Congress were “bowing” to the MIM. He said he was confident that the TRS will lose in the 2023 parliamentary elections and the BJP will come to power in Telangana and that “millions of Asaduddins would not be able to resist the BJP”.

Mr Reddy criticised Congress leader Rahul Gandhi for “fleeing abroad” and declared that the Congress has no future in the country. As for the TRS, it has forgotten the people and Mr Chandrasekhar Rao’s family has benefited, he alleged.

He accused the TRS and MIM of doing an injustice to the state. “Does it make sense when TRS makes an alliance with MIM, which creates unrest among the people of different communities,” he queried.

He demanded that the TRS explain to the public why it has an alliance with the MIM and said that the people must protect Telangana from KCR and Owaisi families.

Minister K.T. Rama Rao, Mr Reddy said, was misleading people about Union government funds to Telangana state, which he has done only to gain votes in the elections.

He asked Mr Rama Rao to declare how much funding the state had received from the Centre during the 10-year rule of the Congress, and then in the five-and-a-half years of National Democratic Alliance (NDA) rule at the Centre.

In neighbouring Andhra Pradesh, about three lakh houses have already been built for poor and another two lakh houses are under construction and the state is requesting another seven lakh units, he said.

But in Telangana, the two lakh houses sanctioned are lying incomplete and it has been six years and the people are still waiting for the double bedroom houses. The TRS wants to win with money, he alleged.

All the development in the municipalities so far in the state was done with funds given by the Centre, Mr Reddy claimed. “We appeal to the public to give the BJP a thumping majority in the polls so that the BJP will ensure more development,” the minister said.
