Rahul Gandhi Rips Into KCR By Calling Telangana Rashtriya Samiti As The B Team Of The BJP


New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi had called  Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao or KCR as Sonia Gandhi’s apprentice. It was Rahul Gandhi’s turn to rip into KCR by labelling the latter’s Telangana Rashtriya Samiti the BJP’s ‘B team’, while campaigning in the state’s Kosgi.

Telangana votes for a new assembly on December 7 and several big guns from all parties are out campaigning as the election battle heats up. While PM Modi addressed two rallies yesterday, Congress president Rahul Gandhi, his ally in the state N Chandrababu Naidu of the Telugu Desam Party and BJP chief Amit Shah are campaigning today.

“Narendra Modiji says the Congress and TRS are alike.... But Modi never said this (KCR and Congress were on the same side) before the elections,” Rahul Gandhi said, also accusing KCR of “imitating PM Modi by creating unemployment,” in Telangana, which was carved out of Andhra Pradesh in 2014 and elected KCR as its first chief minister.

KCR, he told his audience, had helped PM Modi whenever the Congress fought the now-scrapped land acquisition law that would allow governments to take away farm land.

Gandhi said the TRS “stands for Telangana Rashtriya Sangh Parivar,” speaking in Hindi while a translator relayed his words in Telugu to his audience.

The Congress president went on, asking people to think if they had really heard KCR attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

“Listen to his speeches... KCR never attacks, or criticises Modi,” he said.

“How many times did your Chief Minister about Rafale,” he asked, referring to the government’s decision to buy 36 fighter jets from French aviation manufacturer, Dassault. The Congress alleges corruption in the deal.
