Vijayawada: Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) Andhra Pradesh president Dr. Thota Chandrasekhar on Wednesday accused the centre of taking the country backwards with its anti-people policies and using religion and caste to create rift among people.
Earlier, Dr. Chandrasekhar had arrived at the Gannavaram Airport amid a rousing reception from his followers. Speaking to the media at the airport, he expressed concern over problems being faced by farmers, youth and other sections of people across the country.
The BRS AP unit chief regretted that the country is continuing to reel under a severe unemployment crisis. People of rural areas are struggling hard to get drinking and irrigation water, electricity and other basic needs even after 75 years of independence.
Stating that the BRS, headed by Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao, is the only alternative for BJP, Dr. Chandrashekhar asserted that their party will bring a qualitative change in political spectrum and administration by implementing the Telangana model of development across the country.
"BRS will emerge as a major party in the next elections and form a farmer-friendly government at the centre," he declared.
The BRS AP unit chief said rulers of the past and present at the centre are still creating rifts among people in the name of religion. He claimed that the union government has no control over the economy. He also cited bifurcation of the state as being the root-cause for lack of development in Andhra Pradesh.
Dr. Chandrasekhar charged that the centre has failed in fulfilling the promises made to AP state under the AP Reorganisation Act, including completing the Polavaram project, establishing Dugarajapatnam Port, Kadapa Steel Plant, Visakha Railway Zone and Vizag Metro train facility.
