Modi Lacerates TRS And Congress For Perpetuating Family Rule And Politics Harming Development

New Delhi: Dynastic politics at the peril once again when Prime Minister Narendra Modi lacerated Telangana’s ruling Telengana Rashtra Samiti and the Congress for perpetuating “family rule” and pursuing “vote bank” politics that harm development like “termites”.

“The chief minister was a Union minister in the UPA government which was remote-controlled by madam (Sonia Gandhi). After he came into power did he destroy the state or not? His entire education was in the Congress, and those who taught him have a PhD in it,” PM Modi lampooned both KCR (as Rao is known) and the Congress at the BJP’s election campaign at Nizamabad. The two parties were playing a “friendly match” in the assembly polls, he added.

PM Modi invoked Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel to claim had the political titan not been there Indians would have needed Pakistani visa to visit Hyderabad, the present-day capital of Telangana. Patel was widely credited for the annexation of the princely state of Hyderabad whose Muslim ruler did not want to join the Indian union.
