Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and party chief Mallikarjun Kharge launched a scathing attack on Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao (KCR) while campaiging for the assembly elections on Friday. While Gandhi took a dig at KCR for making “a rule of one family”, Kharge said the chief minister’s “retirement days are also close”.
Meanwhile, Rahul Gandhi took potshots at KCR, saying the chief minister “made a rule of one family”. Gandhi said, “All the portfolios that generate income are in the hands of your CM’s family…Land, Liquor… all three portfolios are with your CM’s family…”
Reponding to KCR’s question on “what did the Congress do in the last sevev years”, Gandhi said, “The school and the college in which you studied, KCR, was developed by the Congress.” He added, “Chief Minister, the Hyderabad that you stole from for the last 10 years round the clock, was made the IT capital of the world by Congress party.”
Rahul Gandhi said, “I would like to tell the farmers of Telangana that the Congress party’s government will give you a guarantee of free electricity…Farmers will not have to pay a single penny for electricity…If Congress comes to power you’ll get gas cylinders for ₹500.”
“This is an election between ‘Dorala Telangana’ and ‘Prajala Telangana,” Rahul Gandhi said.
