Hyderabad. Today is the last day of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s three-day election tour in Telangana. He addressed a public meeting in Jagtial. During this he said- There will be a government of the fierce lions of Congress in Telangana. There will be a people’s government here.
Babbar Sher of Congress will overthrow the BRS government. The first step to fulfill the dream of Telangana is caste based enumeration. PM Narendra Modi and CM KCR do not want to conduct caste census here. Congress will fulfill this dream of Telangana. Rahul said- BJP, BRS and AIMIM parties are mixed in Telangana. Wherever we contest elections, AIMIM fields its candidates to help the BJP.
PM Modi does not want to tell the population of OBC category
Rahul said on caste census – Neither PM Modi nor KCR wants to tell the population of OBC category in Telangana. I raised the issue of caste census in the Lok Sabha. But the Prime Minister did not answer my questions. Out of 90 officers in the country, only 3 officers are from OBC category, who control only 5 percent of the country’s budget. Is the OBC population in the country only 5 percent? PM Modi does not want to tell you this truth, because he takes money out of your pocket and puts it in the pockets of people like Adani.
Congress will start closed factories in Telangana
Targeting CM KCR, Rahul said- The entire wealth of Telangana is under the control of one family. Thousands of crores of rupees are coming to the state, but the sugar factory here is closed. If Congress government comes, it will restart this sugar factory.
Rahul visited Ramappa temple with sister Priyanka
Rahul Gandhi reached Telangana with sister Priyanka on October 18. Both of them visited Ramappa temple in Mulugu district. After this Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi did a road show. Then both of them addressed the women’s conference. Priyanka said that the Congress government was a people’s government and was formed to strengthen the people. We have created a vision and roadmap for Telangana. Work has been started on the guarantees given.
Rahul Gandhi said- KCR made many promises, but did not fulfill even a single promise. They have lined up scams. Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi returned to Delhi on Wednesday night.
October 19: Second day of Rahul’s Telangana tour
Rahul Gandhi marched on foot from Karimnagar Housing Board Circle to Rajiv Chowk. After marching on foot for 30 minutes, Rahul Gandhi addressed a public meeting at Rajiv Chowk. He said that the country knows that if one person counters BJP and stands in front of them, it is Rahul Gandhi.
There are 24 cases against me, my MP has been taken away. No matter how many cases Modi filed against your (Telangana) CM, not even one. Neither ED is after him, nor is CBI. KCR and BJP help each other. A wave is coming here, just like a tsunami, similarly a tsunami is going to come in Telangana for Congress.
In the morning, Rahul joined the Vijayabheri Yatra.
Rahul Gandhi took part in Vijayabheri Yatra at 11 am on the second day of Telangana tour. This yatra was taken out from Jaishankar Chowk to Pannur Village. After the visit, Rahul held a public meeting, he said – GST comes out of the shopkeepers’ pockets and goes into Adani ji’s pocket. We do not want such an India. Therefore, caste census is necessary, it will reveal who has how much population and who has how much wealth of India.
After this he held a public meeting in Peddapalli area. Here he said that I am standing in front of BJP. That’s why my MP and house were taken away. If anyone in the country is fighting against Narendra Modi, BJP-RSS and hatred, his name is Rahul Gandhi. The entire country knows this because this is a fight of ideology. Women of Telangana will get Rs 2,500 under Mahalaxmi Yojana, Rs 500 will be given as gas cylinder and free travel in bus. We are not here to make false promises to you, like KCR made false promises to you of giving you land.
