Will not allow anyone to stoke communal fire in Telangana: KCR

VIKARABAD: Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao on Thursday vowed to protect the state from falling into the hands of communal forces. Addressing a public meeting after inaugurating the new building complex of Vikarabad district collectorate, the chief minister said the people of Telangana were his biggest strength.

He promised to take Telangana to new heights of progress and development with the blessings of the people. Launching a scathing attack against the BJP, he said a few people were trying to create a communal divide in the society by fomenting hatred in the name of religion to further cheap political interests.

"Do we need a Telangana that prospers or a state that singes in communal hatred? (Pantalu pande Telangana Kavaalaa, mantalu mande Telangana kaavaala?)," he said. KCR vowed not to remain a silent spectator if any harm is caused to Telangana by communalists.

"Telangana has been enjoying peace and tranquility for the last eight years. The state is making rapid strides in its development. The per capita income has increased. There is abundant water and a 24-hour uninterrupted supply of electricity. These vested political elements are attempting to destroy the harmonious social fabric by stoking the communal fire. I will not let the state fall in their hands until my last breath," he said.
