KTR dares Revanth to make 6 MLAs who switched to Congress resign

Bharat Rashtra Samithi Working President KT Rama Rao challenged Chief Minister Revanth Reddy to have the six MLAs who switched parties resign and get re-elected. KTR reminded Revanth Reddy of his own words when he was in the opposition, claiming there would be no defections if Congress came to power. KTR also recalled Revanth Reddy’s statement that defectors should be stoned if they change the party they were elected from. KTR questioned who should face the public’s anger in the current scenario – Revanth Reddy, the defectors from BRS, or Rahul Gandhi.

KTR highlighted that Rahul Gandhi had previously demanded that if an elected representative switches parties, their membership should be automatically canceled. He pointed out that the Congress party had assured the same in its manifesto. KTR urged people to recognize the contradiction between what Rahul Gandhi and Revanth Reddy promised and what they are currently doing.

KTR mentioned that even Congress party MLC Jeevan Reddy criticized his own party over the defections from BRS to Congress, ignoring its electoral manifesto assurance. He said that the Congress party started the practice of defections under Indira Gandhi’s regime and continued it in the united state by joining 10 TRS party MLAs after the 2004 elections.

Expressing confidence in his party, KTR stated that despite the defections, BRS would not become weaker because the lakhs of party cadre remain loyal. KTR addressed a party cadre meeting in Jagityal town today, where he accused the local MLA Sanjay who joined Congress of doing so under the pretense of development. He questioned MLA Sanjay whether he joined Congress to say that the Jagityal district would be canceled and called on the people of Jagityal to fight against the immoral defection of their MLA to the Congress party.

KTR accused the Congress government of diverting attention from its failures and unfulfilled electoral promises by enticing BRS MLAs to join its ranks. He criticized Revanth Reddy for delaying the implementation of doubling the welfare pensions, increasing the Raitu Bandhu scheme to Rs. 15,000, and providing Rs. 2,500 for women and many other.
