Telangana Chief Minister and BRS party founder Mr K Chandrashekhar Rao has said his party is neither A team or B team to any party. It is equidistant from Congress and BJP. Those two parties ruled the country and failed to rise up to the expectations of the people, he added.
Mr Rao was addressing a public meeting at Sarkoli in Sholapur district in Maharashtra on the second day of his tour today. He earlier offered special prayers at Vithobha Rukmini temple at Pandaripur. He said there were towns in Maharashtra that get drinking water once a week or ten days. Some villages do not have a power connection to date. “What is plaguing the country? The lack of vision and efficiency among rulers. You have given the mandate to every party in the state – BJP, Shiv Sena and NCP. They failed to address problems facing people,” Mr Rao pointed out.
Maharashtra is a big and rich state endowed with natural resources. There is plenty of water available but people do not get water. Unlike them, the BRS is bent on bringing about a drastic change. It will come out with a new water policy. Mr KCR wanted to know if a small and new state like Telangana could do wonders in all sectors, why not the bigger state like Maharashtra come to the rescue of farmers. “Our slogan is abki bar kisan sarkar. We will show it in deed not just in words,” he said amidst cheering crowds.
KCR said he came to know what the leaders of various parties in Maharashtra are talking about the growing popularity of BRS. As he was in the shrine at Pandaripur, he avoided talking about politics despite media persons pressing him. “The BRS is only four months old in Maharashtra. I wonder why the leaders of other parties are fearful. Had they done their duties properly, people will not look for another party be it BRS or another,” Mr Rao pointed out. Prominent persons and former elected representatives from other parties joined the BRS party in the presence of party founder K Chandrasekhar Rao.
