HYDERABAD: While campaigning in Telangana for the upcoming Assembly polls, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said that early elections in the state will benefit the people as they would get free of their problems earlier. While addressing the campaign program here, PM Modi targeted on Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao and said that the minister also follows the dynastic rule the same way as Congress does, which has resulted in failure in bringing any kind of development in the state. Prime Minister Modi also accused both the parties of playing a “friendly match” in the election.

PM Modi further attacked the TRS chief and said that it looks as if Chief Minister Rao has completed his training program under the guidance of the Congress. Modi said that TRS is a “Xerox copy” of the Congress and there is no internal democracy in both the parties.

“The chief minister of Telangana and his family think they can get away with doing no work like the Congress…. They have adopted the style of the Congress which ruled for 50-52 years without doing anything. But that cannot happen now,” he told the crowd at a rally in Nizamabad, a city 175 km from Hyderabad that’s represented in Lok Sabha by Mr Rao’s daughter K Kavitha.

PM Modi further accused Chief Minister Rao of staying away from the healthcare programme of the Centre because of his own insecurities.

“This chief minister feels so insecure…he trusts astrologers, does puja, ties nimbu-mirchi (to ward off evil),” the Prime Minister said. “So when we introduced Ayushman Bharat Yojana, he decided not to join it. He feared people will reject him if Modicare comes into force. He also did injustice to the poor people of the state,” PM Modi added.

In 2014 elections in Telangana, Bhartiya Janta Managed to win nine seats and this time the party is contesting all 119 seats to get a grip on the southern states. Regarding the Assembly elections that will take place on December 7 in the state, the campaign is going on at a good pace and PM Modi landed in the state today.

PM Modi is scheduled to address a rally in Mahbubnagar after which he will return to the state on Monday and address a rally at Hyderabad’s Lal Bahadur Shastri Stadium.
