Hyderabad: A century is on the cards for the TRS in the GHMC, with the party’s working president KT Rama Rao on Saturday asserting that they would win 100 seats this time, unlike the previous elections when a mere five votes led to the loss of the Jambagh division and the party ended up with 99 seats.
“Going by your support and enthusiasm, I am sure the TRS will score a century this time,” Rao said while addressing the crowd during his roadshow in the Kukatpally and Qutbullapur regions.
At Narsapur crossroads, he said Kukatpally MLA M Krishna Rao was in politics since 30 years and had urged many governments in the past for construction of a flyover but none responded. The TRS government was now constructing a flyover at a cost of Rs 400 crore and it would be completed by Sankranti, he said.
Pointing to the towering blocks of the Double Bedroom Housing Complex, Rama Rao said though it might resemble a private gated community, truth was that it was the Dignity housing complex constructed by the TRS government, with many more such structures to be inaugurated shortly.
Of the one lakh double bedroom houses being constructed across the GHMC limits, many were already handed over to the poor, he said.
Rama Rao also dared BJP leaders, including Union Minister of State for Home Affairs G Kishan Reddy, to mention one developmental project taken up by the Central government in Hyderabad in the last six years.
“On the contrary, I can list out a 100 development works we have taken up here,” he said.
Jai TRS should reverberate in Delhi: KTR
TRS working president KT Rama Rao commenced his campaign for GHMC elections on an impressive note on Saturday and attracted by the party’s policies, some Congress leaders joined the TRS.
During roadshows at Allahpur and Narsapur crossroads, the Congress leaders joined the TRS in the presence of Rao, who welcomed them by presenting TRS party stoles. All through his programmes at different places, people greeted him with colourful gatherings and loud cheering.
At a roadshow near Chittaramma Thalli chowrasta, Rama Rao asked the gathering to raise Jai TRS and Jai Telangana slogans in a high pitch and added, “Your slogans should reverberate in Delhi”.
Fiery punch lines send crowds roaring
TRS working president K T Rama Rao was firing on all cylinders on Saturday, enthralling the large crowds that gathered along the roadsides to hear him.
From hard hitting questions to fiery punch lines, Rao was all over the BJP, which had tried to pull a few fast ones in the last few days with poll promises and a challenge that fizzled out. “This is not Ahmedabad where the people will believe all that you say. This is Hoshiyar Hyderabad,” went one, as he tore apart what he called the BJP’s designs to rupture the secular fabric of Hyderabad.
There were more, as he reiterated that people would have to choose between divisive politics and decisive policies and said that the fight was between a gully party and a Delhi party. “Do you want a Gully Boy or a Delhi boy?” he asked the crowd, which responded to the former with a roar.
