Telangana, a state in southern India, is witnessing a silent revolution as its people gain confidence in the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)’s rise to power said G Kishan Reddy.
The state BJP chief and Union Minister for Tourism, expressed this sentiment during a recent press conference.
The ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) party, led by Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, is facing growing opposition, and the BJP is emerging as the front-runner in several constituencies according to G Kishan Reddy.
Despite circulating false survey reports, the BJP candidates are receiving a positive response in the field.
The party’s manifesto is being well-received by the people. Telangana has become the battleground for a “silent revolution” against the ruling TRS party.
People are voluntarily restricting the entry of TRS campaign vehicles into their villages, signifying a growing shift in support towards the BJP.
The Need for a “Double Engine” Government in Telangana
G Kishan Reddy emphasized that the only solution to Telangana’s problems is to bring a “double engine” government to the state.
By aligning the state government with the BJP-led central government, Telangana can benefit from the combined efforts and resources of both entities.
The voters’ dissatisfaction with the TRS government is evident as they feel deprived of schemes like Dalit Bandhu and BC Bandhu, and their panchayats are not receiving adequate funds.
A significant factor contributing to Telangana’s growing confidence in the BJP’s rise to power is the trust and support for Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
It is estimated that 60 to 70 percent of the youth between the ages of 18 and 35 in Telangana show strong favorability towards PM Modi.
His track record of delivering on promises, combined with his leadership during challenging times like the abrogation of Article 370, has bolstered the public’s trust in the BJP.
Contrasting the BJP with the Congress Party
G Kishan Reddy took the opportunity to contrast the BJP with the Congress party. He accused the Congress of making promises that are not implementable, whereas the BJP has a track record of delivering what it promises.
The Congress’ insincerity towards Telangana’s development and the lack of progress in implementing promises made in other states, including Karnataka, has disillusioned the people.
On the other hand, the BJP guarantees to execute only what is feasible and within their capacity.
Both the TRS government and the previous Congress rule have been marred by corruption and scandals.
G Kishan Reddy equated the mentality of both parties to feudalistic practices. To address the corruption allegations against the TRS government, the BJP’s manifesto promises an inquiry by a retired Supreme Court judge.
This commitment demonstrates the party’s dedication to maintaining a clean and transparent administration.
