Will continue welfare schemes till my last breath: KCR at Munugode

Hyderabad: Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao on 20 August said he and the TRS was ready for any confrontation with the Narendra Modi government at the Centre for the sake of the state. He also asserted that no welfare scheme would be suspended or abolished and said they would continue till his last breath.

The Chief Minister also announced that electric meters will not be fixed for bore wells in the state.

Addressing the Praja Deevena Sabha, seen as a precursor to the forthcoming Munugode Assembly by-election, KCR appealed to the people of the constituency to teach a befitting lesson to the saffron party.

He also spoke against spreading hatred in the country based on religion. KCR warned the people against voting for the BJP alleging that the BJP would abolish all welfare schemes and impose a heavier tax regime. He also said that voting for Congress would only mean wasting their precious franchise as the party was nowhere in contention.

Appealing to the women, he said the BJP should be rejected if the prices of essential commodities and gas cylinders were to be restored to earlier normal levels.

KCR said Telangana is the only state in the country that is providing 24-hour quality power to all sectors. "Not a single BJP-ruled state, including PM's native state of Gujarat, is supplying power," he said.

Hitting out at BJP's communal politics, KCR said, "Fanaticism and caste and religious hatred are not good for the country. We all should thwart the BJP's attempts."

He reminded the voters of Munugode that it was the TRS government that converted 3,500 thandas into gram panchayats in Munugode.

KCR blamed the Centre for the increase in unemployment, the fall in Rupee value, and the farmers' struggles.

Responding to Mr. Modi's recent attack on state-sponsored welfare schemes, the CM said. "Gujarat is giving Rs. 600 as pension while Telangana is providing Rs. 2,000. If BJP wins, all welfare schemes will be stopped," he added.

KCR also lashed out at other political parties in the country. "CPI supported TRS. CPM will also join soon. This has given a big shock to BJP in this by-election."

Further, he said, "If we vote for Congress, it will go to waste. Congress neither wins nor comes to power. Congress is nowhere in the country. The party can do nothing for the country or the state."
