KTR slams Congress Party for stopping Rythu Bandhu

BRS Working President KTR slammed the Congress party which has approached the Election Commission of India (ECI) and filed a complaint to stop the disbursement of Rythu Bandhu money. KTR said that the EC had earlier granted permission for the disbursement of Rythu Bandhu money but the permission was revoked after the Congress party filed a complaint.

KTR stated that the Congress party even before coming to power had made sure Rythu Bandhu money did not reach the farmers. And by mistake if people vote for Congress, they will scrap the Rythu Bandhu scheme completely, he said. “Congress party snatched the morsel before it reached the mouth of the farmers,” KTR said. He asked the farmers not to worry and stated that the BRS party would come back to power and that the first thing it would do was disburse the Rythu Bandhu money.

Speaking at the road shows in Peddapalli, Dharmapuri, Huzurabad, and Mulugu constituencies, KTR blatantly attacked the Congress party for stooping down to the level of working against the farmers’ interests only to seek votes. KTR reminded the people that the KCR Govt gave Rythu Bandhu 11 times until now which benefited 70 lakh farmers in Telangana.

Attacking the Congress party for its anti-farmer policies, KTR said that Revanth Reddy talks of providing a three-hour power supply to the farmers, Uttam Kumar Reddy calls Rythu Bandhu a program that is a waste of money and Batti Vikramarka says Dharani would be replaced with the patwari system. He ridiculed the Congress party leaders for their stand towards farmers.

Making a comparison between BRS and Congress, KTR asked, “What do you want? Current or Congress, Rythu Bandhu or Rabandu (vultures), schemes or scams? He added that the Karnataka farmers were coming to Telangana and saying that it was a mistake to elect Congress in their state which only worsened the current problem.

“To suppress the voice of KCR, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Amit Shah, Union Ministers and CMs of different states were coming to Telangana and Rahul Gandhi from Delhi and DK Shivkumar from Karnataka were also coming here. But a lion-like KCR will fight it alone,” said KTR. KTR stated that PM Modi when in opposition cried over the gas cylinder price hike and after becoming PM, he increased Rs. 800 on the gas cylinder. He further said that CM KCR will bear Rs. 800 and give the gas cylinder for Rs. 400 to the people in Telangana.

During the meeting, KTR highlighted the BRS manifesto and said that the pension amount will be increased from Rs. 2000 to Rs. 5000, KCR Aarogya Raksha Scheme to increase ArogyaSri Bhima Scheme coverage to 15 lakh, and Annapurna Scheme would be implemented to provide fine rice (Sanna Biyyam) to all ration card holders.

Appealing to the people to cast their vote in this election, KTR stated that this election will decide the fate of Telangana State and its people. He asked them to think wisely and vote for the BRS Party.
