Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Thursday attacked the BJP and the TRS, referring to them as two sides of the same coin. The Congress MP addressing a public meeting in the Narayanpet district of Telangana as part of his Bharat Jodo Yatra, alleged that both parties are anti-democratic, buy MLAs and topple governments.
“I want to clarify that BJP and TRS are the same for us. They are two sides of the same coin. You must realise that both parties collaborate. They support one another. In Telangana, BJP backs TRS, and TRS supports BJP in Delhi.” he said.
“Both are anti-democratic parties. They practice politics of money, buy MLAs and topple governments,” he added.
Rahul Gandhi recalled that the TRS offered its complete support to all the bills that Prime Minister Narendra Modi wanted to enact in the Parliament. “The three black laws on agriculture have the full support of the TRS. We introduced a resolution opposing the three farm legislation in the Assembly, but TRS did not support it, “he said.
Gandhi further alleged that Telangana is witnessing the highest-ever corruption and unemployment. He also claimed that demonetisation and GST broke the country’s backbone.
The Gandhi scion-led Bharat Jodo Yatra completed 26.7 km on Thursday. The yatra will cover 19 Assemblies and seven Parliamentary constituencies in Telangana. Rahul Gandhi will enter Hyderabad on November 1, hoist the national flag at Charminar, and address a meeting on Necklace road.
