Hyderabad: Union Minister of Home and Cooperation Amit Shah on Sunday addressed massive rallies at Makthal, Mulug and Bhongir in poll-bound Telangana.
Speaking at the rallies, Shah said that the upcoming election is not merely about electing a candidate. It is an election that will decide the future of Telangana. KCR and his ministers have engaged in immeasurable corruption. Land grabbing and many other activities have been carried out by the elected representatives here. The KCR government had promised to build a hundred-bed hospital. They did not complete it. They promised to build a degree college. They have not completed it. They promised to give unemployment allowances to the youth. But no one got it.
“KCR has done nothing. Rather their MLAs are involved in the illegal mining of black earth and sand. This is a region where the weavers KCR did nothing for them. We will build a textile park in Narayanpet and will promote the weavers. The Modi government formed a ministry for the fishermen but KCR introduced no scheme for them. We will form a Rs.1000 crore pool for their progress. The Sangambandha scheme is defunct. We will revive it and make it effective. KCR said that they would create 100 irrigation tanks in Utkoor Mandal. They did not but we will build these 100 irrigation schemes. KCR talks about Kaleswaram. But KCR and KTR have done nothing other than corruption in Kaleswaram. BRS means Bhrashtachar Rishwakhor Samity.” He added.
He also said, “We will also augment the Bheema project. If you vote for the congress then their MLAs will join KCR. Congress party and the BRS have entered into a deal. As per the deal, the Congress will help the BRS in making KCR the chief minister and BRS will make Rahul Gandhi the prime minister in return. If you want to remove KCR then you have only one option and that is forming a BJP government under the leadership of Modi Ji. A congress MLA is like a Chinese product without guarantee who may at any time join the BRS. In the year 2014, seven Congress MLAs joined the TRS. In 2015, 34 Congress MLCs joined the BRS and in 2018, 12 MLAS joined BRS.”
He said, “We have decided that we will make a leader from the backward class the chief minister of Telangana. We have decided that we will give the Madiga community a vertical quota as the SC caste. We also have decided to give four gas cylinders to poor women free of cost every year. We also have decided to celebrate Hyderabad Liberation Day on 17th September every year as a state festival.”
He pointed out that the BRS fears Owaisi. It has the car as its election symbol but the steering of its car is with the Owaisis. The BJP has decided to end the 4 per cent Muslim reservation and give it to the SCs, STs and OBCs. On the 22nd of January PM Modi will enshrine Lord Ram in the Ayodhya Temple. If the people of Telangana form a BJP government the BJP government will take everyone to Ayodhya on pilgrimage.
In Mulug, Shah said, recently the prime minister set up the Sammakka Sarakka Tribal University. But if the BRS forms a government again then they will not grant land for it. If people form a BJP government here the BJP government will not only grant land for it but will also allocate Rs.300 crore for it. The BJP government has also started the works on building the Devil Sammakka Sarakka Museum. Modi Ji has made the producers of Mulug famous by giving their produce GI tag and opening stalls for them. Modi Ji has given post-matric scholarships to tribal students. But KCR refused to introduce this scholarship in Telangana.
“We have decided to give this scholarship to tribal students as soon as we form a government here. The BRS is creating a rift between the tribal and non-tribal population in the name of distributing forest patta. From a BJP government here we will give forest pattas to both tribal and non-tribal populations,” he said.
He reminded the people that the Congress party has always been anti-tribal. In the last 70 years, they have never nominated a person from a tribal background as the President of India. But only Prime Minister Narendra Modi has made Draupadi Murmu the president of India. Modi Ji showed respect to the tribal people by celebrating Bhagwan Birsa Munda’s birthday as Janjatiya Gaurav Diwas. The BJP houses the biggest number of tribal MPs and MLAs. BJP has made the biggest number of tribal leaders ministers.
During the Congress government, India did not have a tribal ministry. BJP leader and former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee formed the Tribal Ministry. During the Congress government, the budget for the development of the tribes was Rs.24,000 crore but Modi Ji made it Rs.1,25000 crore. BJP has built 740 Ekalavya Vidyalayas for tribal students. Under the Jal Jeevan Mission, more than 1 crore poor tribal families have been served drinking water by the Modi government. Modi Ji has given 50 lakh tribal families homes. Modi Ji has built 1.50 crore toilets built for tribal families. Every year 1 crore tribal farmers are given Rs.6000.
“Form a BJP government here we will make Rs.12,000 a year. I promise to revive the paper mill here if you form a BJP government. The KCR government has siphoned off thousands of crores of funds meant for the tribes,” he said.
He said that the BRS is involved in the Mission Bhagirathi scam, passport scam, Rs.4000 crore Miyapur Land deal scam, outer ring road scam, Rs.40,000 crore Kaleswaram Scheme scam, liquor scam worth thousands of crores, granite scam of several hundred crores, the 2020 flood relief scam, Rs.2200 crore Mission Kakatiya. They cannot do any good to the tribal brothers and sisters. Only BJP can make Telangana the foremost state of India.
“Now KCR is lying that the Government of India did not announce the Kaleswaram Project as a national one. But I want to clarify that KCR never asked for any help for it from Modi Ji,” he said.
In Bhongir he said that the KCR government made no efforts to take care of the magnificent Bhongir fort. He assured that if a BJP government is formed then it will be transformed into a tourist site with an expenditure of Rs.50 crore.
“We will also control pollution in the Musi River. But people will have to decide to free Telangana from the pollution of KCR’s corruption by voting for the BJP first. Vinobha Bhabe Ji started the Bhoodan Movement here but KCR has started the Land grabbing movement here. The KCR’s MLAs and Mafia have grabbed land belonging to the people and the government. Once the BJP government is formed we will investigate every land scam and put the culprits behind bars. It is time to send KCR’s car of corruption into the garage and BRS should be given VRS,” he said.
He added. We will reduce VAT on petrol and diesel and make them cheaper. We will buy paddy at Rs 3100 per quintal.
