VHR Predicts INDIA Government at the Centre

Kakinada: Senior Congress leader V. Hanumantha Rao has predicted that INDIA alliance will come to power at the centre, with Bharatiya Janata Party-led NDA suffering reverses. Addressing media at Rajamahendravaram on Thursday, he maintained that people in the country want a change in the government, as there has been no development in the country for the past 10 years.

Hanumantha Rao ridiculed the claim of union home minister Amit Shah that Pak-occupied Kashmir (PoK) will merge with the Indian Union. He wondered what the NDA government had been doing during the past 10 years on this matter. The senior Congress leader accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of not fulfilling a single promise he made during the 2014 and 2019 elections. He has not brought back money from Swiss banks and deposited ₹15 lakh in each Indian’s account. He has not provided two crore jobs per annum to unemployed youth. Similarly, Modi has not kept many other promises. Thus, people will not believe his words or promises.

Hanumantha Rao quoted Amit Shah as saying that if NDA comes to power again, Muslim reservations will be scrapped. “How can he oppose reservations to Muslims? Are Muslims not human beings? Is there no poverty among the members of this religion? What is wrong, if Muslims get reservations,” he asked. The Congress leader said during the past 10 years, majority of the public sector units in India have been privatised. Now, Narendra Modi is trying to privatise Visakhapatnam Steel Plant. He quoted Narendra Modi saying that Congress leaders, including Rahul Gandhi, are fans of Pakistan. “How can the Prime Minister make such a derogatory and divisive statement during his election campaign,” he asked.

Hanumantha Rao predicted that Congress party will strengthen in Andhra Pradesh in the coming five years, as the present three regional parties have failed to develop the state or get special category status for AP. He said people have understood the political situation and realised their mistake. “They will start supporting Congress in coming years, as they have done for many years in the past,” he added. Former Amalapuram MP G.V. Harsha Kumar and others were present.
