Hyderabad: The BJP has termed the TRS manifesto for the GHMC elections as a repeat of the one released before the 2016 elections to the corporation, albeit a few new promises.

Addressing the media at the BJP State headquarters here, Union Minister of State for Home Affairs G Kishan Reddy said the TRS, despite the mandate it received in the past election, had failed to fulfil the promises it made to develop Hyderabad into a world-class city.

“The TRS has released the same manifesto without even changing the cover page and the photo of Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao. Inside, they had repeated the same-old promises such as 2 BHK houses, development of nala network, drinking water for all, metro and MMTS,” he said.

The Minister charged the State government with obstructing the construction of the Metro rail after assuming power in 2014 which had cost the construction company huge loss. “The State has also not released its share of the MMTS project cost causing inordinate delay in its completion, but the issue of MMTS was repeated in the manifesto,” he said.

“The Chief Minister says he would soon set foot in New Delhi to stitch an alternative to the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre. What kind of direction is he going to give the nation?” he asked. “The Chief Minister talks about war against the Centre. War is waged only against enemy nations,” Kishan Reddy said, adding that as a citizen of the country, Chandrashekhar Rao had every right to unite political parties against the Centre but he must remember that even the Congress had failed to do so.

He refuted the Chief Minister’s allegations that the Centre was on the verge of privatising public sector units such as BSNL and the Railways. “Only recently, the Centre has announced a revival package of Rs 25,000 crore to BSNL,” he said.
