KCR serves a warm welcome for Oppn. Presidential nominee and a threat to BJP

Hyderabad: Describing the Opposition parties' Presidential nominee Yashwant Sinha as "Acche, sacche, tall personality," Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao said the TRS is happy to welcome such a good neta and is happy with his nomination.

Extending his wishes, KCR said he hopes Mr. Sinha wins and improves the country's honour. "We have a democracy in India. Compare both the candidates. Vote for Yashwant Sinha," KCR appealed to all parliamentarians who will vote in the upcoming Presidential elections.

Addressing the public after welcoming Mr. Sinha on 1 July, KCR said, "Kya ho raha hein desh mein? Desh mein galat ho raha hain. Aise sthithi mein desh ko khamosh nahi hona. Aawaaz udane, ucchh gunavarth vali parivarthan ke liye. We need to bring a qualitative change in Indian politics."

KCR's questions for Modi

KCR also had a volley of questions for Prime Minister Narendra Modi. "Dear PM, just like how you are making allegations against the Opposition parties, you should also give answers to our questions," he said, starting his questions.

The CM questioned the results of the Centre's 'Make in India' programme. "Make in India se kya hua, kuch aaya ya kuch gaya?" he asked.

He also slammed the government for increase in the import of commodities. "In Singareni, we produce coal for Rs. 4,000 and the same thing, the Union government is importing for Rs. 25,000," KCR said.

He alleged that all investments are going abroad. "Tum PM ka kaam nahi karte ho. Aapke doston ka salesman ka kaam kar rahe hein. Agar aapki doshi nahi, toh kal meeting me answer kijiye," he said.




KCR criticised the government for not making proper arrangements for people to go back home before announcing the Covid-19 lockdown. He said Mr. Modi was killing democracy and federalism every single day. "Bharat ka apman ho raha hein. It's not at all good for the country," he said.

He also said India has dropped its position in various indices like Human Development Index Hunger Index, Fundamental Rights, Unemployment data, Press Freedom Index, Happiness Index, and Environmental Index.

Referring to Mr. Modi as "ghale ghale phad ke bolne wala," KCR asked the PM if he has fulfilled even a single promise he made to the people when he got elected the first time. "Chunnav ke vakth meeti meeti baathein, chunaave ke baat jhooti jhooti baathein," he said.



Referring to the farmers' crisis in the country, KCR said, "Farmers feed us. You said you will double their income but only the expenses doubled, investments doubled. Around 7,000 farmers died fighting against the three farm bills. You had to finally bow down to the farmers."

KCR further said that a gross misuse of constitutional provisions was happening in the country. He said democracy was at stake.

"Nou sarkare giraye aapne. Kya hein uska nateeja? Behaal Hindustan. Kisan, jawan, sab pareshaan hein. Kaun khush hein? Please try to understand that. Desh ke maan maryada ithna pehle kabhi gira nahi hein," he said.

Responding to BJP's claims of bringing down the TRS government, similar to what happened in Maharashtra, KCR said, "Aap woh karlo, hum aap ko Dilli se utaarenge."

A special election

After KCR welcomed Mr. Yashwant Sinha at Begumpet airport on Saturday afternoon, the TRS party leaders held a bike rally in the city. Referring to this rally, KCR said the spirit of democracy was still alive in India, and the TRS bike rally held on Saturday to welcome Mr. Sinha sends that message to the whole nation. However, during the rally, most of the TRS leaders were found without helmets.

Meanwhile, Mr. Sinha said he was overwhelmed coming to Hyderabad. He said the Presidential election was a continuation of his fights against the government. He also said that Telangana minister KTR's visit to Delhi on his nomination day gave a lot of strength to his nomination. "The ruling party has fielded a tribal woman as their candidate. This election is progressing in an unnatural way and hence it's special," said Mr. Sinha.

KCR on Saturday did not go to receive PM Modi who arrived at the Begumpet airport on Saturday afternoon to attend BJP's national executive meeting. In the last six months, this is the third time KCR has not receive PM Modi when he came to Hyderabad.
