Criticises state government

Addressing the meeting, Nadda accused the ruling BRS government of failing to implement centrally-sponsored schemes in the state.

Nadda said Prime Minister Narendra Modi introduced several schemes aimed at benefiting the people but the BRS government was not implementing the schemes and thereby ignoring the welfare of the people.

The BRS also failed to implement the assurances given to the people in the past nine years, he said.

The state government did not provide a single room to the people but claimed that it was providing 2 BHK flats to the poor, he added.

“The family rule of the Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao would come to an end after the upcoming Assembly elections in the state. Chandrashekhar Rao’s rule was reflecting the rule of razakars of the Nizam era,” Nadda said.

‘Centre allocated ₹9 lakh crore for Telangana’

Dismissing allegations levelled by the ruling party leaders that the Union government had not allocating funds to the state, Nadda said the Centre allocated ₹9 lakh crore in the past nine years for Telangana.

He said the Congress ignored the aspirations of several regions and as a result, regional parties came up in several states.

One such regional party is TRS —  now BRS —  Nadda said, adding that these regional parties gradually became family parties.

Nadda said it was the BJP that was striving for the overall development of the country.

“The BJP is the only party which is fighting as a national party amid family parties all over the country, and it is working in every state for a strong nation,” he said.
