Hyderabad: TRS working president K T Rama Rao on Thursday cautioned people against the divisive politics of the BJP which is attempting to sow differences among the people of the city on the basis of religion. Addressing a series of roadside meetings in Secunderabad Lok Sabha constituency, Rama Rao said the city has been peaceful since the TRS came to power. Everyone, irrespective of their religion, lives likes members of one family in the city and not a single incident of intolerance or curfew raised its head. “But to get some votes, the BJP is trying to create differences. All it talks about is Hindus and Muslims, Mandir and Masjid, and India and Pakistan. Do not fall for the BJP and its leaders’ evil designs,” Rama Rao said..
He ridiculed the BJP candidate G Kishan Reddy’s claims that if he wins, he would become a Minister in the Narendra Modi Cabinet. Rama Rao said the one Minister from Telangana in the Modi Cabinet, Bandaru Dattatreya who won from Secunderabad in 2014, was removed from his post. “Not that he did anything for Secunderabad or the city whether as a Minister or an MP. The BJP has absolutely nothing to show for five years of its rule,” he said. Referring to a request to shift the police training college from Amberpet so its land can be used for construction of two bedroom houses for the poor, Rama Rao said this suggestion will be considered by the government. He also said the demand for setting up a government degree college in Amberpet will be looked into. He also said work on the Rs 430 crore steel bridge at RTC Crossroads will also begin soon. “We can do this and much more. Get funds for the Musi Beautification Project. If you give TRS and KCR 16 MPs, then with your blessing we will bend funds for the city. Amberpet has a severe drainage problem. To solve the drainage problem in the city, we need Rs 11,000 to Rs 12,000 crore,” he said..
