Attacking BRS leaders for raising doubts about implementation of the five guarantees of Congress in Karnataka, Kharge said Telangana Congress president A Revanth Reddy will arrange a luxury bus and take the BRS leaders to Karnataka and show them about implementation of the promises

Questioning who benefited under the Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao-led government in Telangana, Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge on Sunday assured that if the party comes to power in Telangana it will implement its six guarantees in the state. Addressing a public meeting in Sangareddy constituency in the run-up to the November 30 Assembly polls in Telangana, Kharge highlighted the six poll guarantees announced by the Congress in Telangana and urged the people to elect the grand old party in the state.

He attacked Telangana Chief Minister Chandrasekhar Rao saying ”KCR ji kept doing whatever he wanted and asked ”who benefitted from it?” ”Did students, women and farmers benefit? That’s why the Congress party is giving you six guarantees,” he said. The Congress party has fulfilled the promises it made to the people of Karnataka, he said, adding ”What we promise we deliver, but you promise only for votes and then go away.”

Attacking BRS leaders for raising doubts about implementation of the five guarantees of Congress in Karnataka, Kharge said Telangana Congress president A Revanth Reddy will arrange a luxury bus and take the BRS leaders to Karnataka and show them about implementation of the promises.

Accusing the BRS and the BJP of working together, Kharge said ”BJP and Modi question what the Congress did in 70 years. And its ’B’ team BRS is also saying the same thing. I think both have a secret pact and they do only the things which benefit them.” Kharge said the Congress always thinks of the poor. He said only the Congress fights for the rights of the poor, students, farmers, women, Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes. He further accused the BRS government of pushing Telangana into a debt trap of over Rs 5 lakh crore in the last nine years of its rule.

He said Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah and nowadays BRS leaders speak against the Congress. Kharge recalled that it was Sonia Gandhi who gave Telangana, and said she fulfilled the wishes of the people of Telangana. ”The Congress played a big role in the formation of Telangana and without Sonia ji this wouldn’t have been possible,” he added.
