Hyderabad (Telangana) [India], Nov 12 (ANI): Puducherry Chief Minister V Narayanasamy on Monday accused his Telangana counterpart K Chandrashekar Rao of betraying the state's people by not fulfilling the assurances and promises he made to them.
Narayanasamy, who visited the poll-bound Telangana to campaign for the Congress candidates, told media persons, "I was closely associated with both the 2004 and 2009 elections in Andhra Pradesh. The job of a chief minister is to fulfill the assurance given to the people. However, in the last four and a half years, KCR never really interacted with the people, government officials and MLAs of his own party."
Narayanasamy also slammed the TRS government in the state for not able to control farmers' suicide in the state, which records the highest number of farmers' suicides followed by Maharashtra in the country. "The second highest number of farmers' suicide takes place in Telangana," he said.
"At least, 4,500 farmers have ended their lives in the past four years due to the government apathy towards them. It also ranks third in unemployment. Corruption, suicides, unemployment are not signs of development. Like the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who only boasts of his 'Make in India' and does nothing, KCR is turning into 'Chhota Modi' of India. He never really bothered about the public issues at large and only benefitted his own family," he added.
The Assembly elections in Telangana are scheduled to be held on December 7 to constitute the second Vidhan Sabha of the state. In 2014, the TRS emerged as a majority party by winning 63 of a total 119 Assembly seats. (ANI)
