Telangana Assembly election 2018: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday launched a blistering attack on Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao and said that he followed the footsteps of the Congress and did nothing in the last four years. Today, the prime minister addressed two rallies —Nizamabad and Mahbubnagar — in the Telangana. In Mahbubnagar, PM Modi said the TRS government ruined the state. “The reason is simple – their apprenticeship under the Chandrababu Naidu government, when the state was a part of Andhra Pradesh and the UPA government,” he said.
Earlier in the day, Modi said that those who believe in development, building new India and new Telangana trust the BJP. He also said that the CM had promised to transform Nizamabad into London. “But look at the condition of this region. The region lacks development,” he told the crowd.
On Sunday, BJP president Amit Shah had undertaken a whirlwind tour of Telangana and addressed four public meetings. Shah will again visit the state on Wednesday and December 2. Telangana will go to polls on December 7 along with Rajasthan. The state Legislative Assembly has 119 seats. At present, the TRS of K Chandrasekhar Rao is in the majority with 90 seats. The Assembly was dissolved on September 6, more than 8 months ahead of the expiry of its term by CM KCR.
