Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi embarked on a dynamic election campaign in Telangana and Rajasthan on Friday, leaving a lasting impact on the political landscape. Addressing a vibrant rally in Hyderabad, he resolutely dubbed the Congress-Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) alliance as a ‘grand scam’ that thrives on conflict rather than fostering development.
In a fiery speech, Modi unequivocally stated, “The Congress-TRS grand scam is perpetually focused on retaining power.” He highlighted that TRS chief K. C. Rao (KCR) has compromised extensively to safeguard his political standing, both in the state and Parliament. “KCR and his family have monopolized power, both within the state and at the national level,” remarked Modi.
Modi directed scathing criticism at the TRS government for its unfulfilled promise of providing 12% reservation for Muslims since 2014. Expressing concern, he declared, “The TRS government pledges to uplift 12% of the Muslim community but conveniently overlooks the well-being of other marginalized sections.”
Accusing the TRS government of exacerbating the “police-police” problem, Modi emphasized its failure to address this pressing issue. He warned against the dangerous trend of intertwining politics with the police force, calling for immediate rectification.
The Congress party also faced the brunt of Modi’s speech as he accused them of seeking to “break the country.” He asserted, “The Congress party’s agenda is to dismantle our cultural fabric, rupture societal harmony, undermine our traditions, and weaken our institutions.”
Posing thought-provoking questions to his supporters in Hyderabad, Modi passionately asked, “Do you yearn for liberation from the clutches of the Congress-TRS grand scam? Do you seek an end to the TRS government’s politicization of the police force? Are you determined to overcome the TRS government’s nepotism? Do you aspire to resolve the 12% Muslim-12% backward community issue?” He concluded with an earnest appeal, “If you share these aspirations, then on December 7, cast your vote for the BJP, empowering it with an overwhelming majority.”
Narendra Modi’s visit to Telangana and Rajasthan left an indelible mark, invigorating the election campaign and reinvigorating his supporters. His strong words resonated with the crowd, urging them to strive for a new era of governance driven by progress and unity. As the election day approaches, the impact of Modi’s powerful rhetoric continues to reverberate, shaping the aspirations and decisions of the electorate
