Hyderabad: On Saturday, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) state chairman Bandi Sanjay criticized Chief Minister and Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) supremo K Chandrashekar Rao for being “two-faced”.
Taking to Twitter, the BJP leader said KCR did not mention the Nizams on the occasion of Telangana Jateeya Samaikyata Dinotsavam (National Telangana Integration Day).
He goes on to accuse the CM of not being aware of Telangana’s story. “Better late than never, at least now prioritize reading history over trolling books,” he tweeted.
Earlier in the day, CM KCR said the divisive forces are taking the opportunity of September 17 for their ‘narrow and selfish politics’ and he warned the people of Telangana to make sure the state does not descend down the “rabbit hole of hate”. ‘.
“I wish the people of Telangana on this auspicious occasion of the amalgamation of the state into the Union of India, which has changed from an aristocracy to a democracy. We have also recently celebrated the occasion of the seventy-five years of India’s independence in a way that creates a sense of patriotism among everyone. This celebration of Integration Day is a continuation of the same,” he said.
KCR reminded people of Doddi Komarayya, Ravi Narayana Reddy, Swami Ramananda Theertha, Sardar Jamalapuram Keshava Rao, Vattikota Alwar Swamy, Chakali Ailamma, Bheemreddy Narasimha Reddy, Nalla Narasimhulu, Bommagani Dharmabhiksham Goud, Aarutla Ramachandra Reddy, Aarutla Kamaladevi, Devulapalli Venkateshwar Rao and Baddam Ellam Reddy who played an important role in the freedom struggle in the history of Telangana.
Additionally, KCR announced that the state government will pass the GO to increase the Scheduled Tribes quota from 5% to 10% over the next week.
“Either the center accepts our GO or it will act as a noose for Prime Minister Narendra Modi,” KCR remarked.
The Chief Minister also announced that agricultural land has been identified to be provided to Adivasis cultivating on podu lands. He also announced that the “Girijana Bandhu” program, similar to the existing Dalit Bandhu program, will also be implemented in the near future.
