Telangana: Munugode bypoll an election between 2 ideologies, says KTR

KTR also slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi for supporting only "corporates and his crony capitalist friends" while ignoring people's basic needs.

Hyderabad: TRS (BRS) working president and state minister IT KT Rama Rao (KTR) on Tuesday said that voting for the BJP would result in LPG cylinder prices touching Rs 4,000, and asked them to choose between the ruling party’s welfare government and the BJP’s “contractor government”.

KTR reminded the people of Munugode that the by-election was “forced” on them due to the “greed” of the then-sitting MLA and ex-Congress legislator Komatireddy Rajgopal Reddy who defected to the BJP. The Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) leader, addressing a roadshow in Samsthan Narayanpuram and Munugode, that the BJP regime increased petrol prices from Rs 70 per litre in 2014 to Rs 110 per litre in 2022.

“Also, the price of a cooking gas cylinder has risen from Rs 400 to Rs 1,200. Voting for the BJP will only encourage the party to raise the price to Rs 4,000. People must decide whether to support the BJP, whose actions have resulted in a sharp increase in the price of essential commodities, or the TRS government, which is focused on the welfare and development of all. The election was between two ideologies, not two candidates,” KTR remarked.

The TRS IT minister alleged that BJP candidate Komatireddy Rajgopal Reddy defected from the Congress to the BJP in exchange for an Rs 18,000 crore tender awarded to his mining company by the Centre. KTR said that Rajgopal Reddy has been preoccupied with “advancing his commercial interests” through his position since day one, ignoring Munugode constituency.

KTR also slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi for supporting only “corporates and his crony capitalist friends” while ignoring people’s basic needs. He cited several welfare and development initiatives launched by chief minister K Chandrashekhar Rao over the last eight years, during which Prime Minister Modi did nothing to help the people.
