PM Modi takes dig at KCR’s ‘superstitious’ beliefs | India News

HYDERABAD: In his first visit to Telangana after the high-stakes Munugode bypolls — which TRS won — and amid a row over TRS accusing the opposition BJP of trying to bribe its legislators to defect, PM Modi said the bypoll loss was not a setback because it showed BJP has the people’s blessings. “Despite obstacles placed by the desperate government, people fought back. You inspire me for the work you have done there,” he told party workers.
The PM has been visiting the southern states, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh, since Friday. Addressing BJP workers at Begumpet airport, the PM said he would be happy if the criticism hurled at him brought prosperity to the state and its farmers. “BJP has a positive agenda for Telangana. If the poor in Telangana are neglected, there will be stiff resistance. If dreams of people of Telangana are shattered, the tables will be turned (‘lene ke dene pad jayenge’) and those who are pillaging Telangana will not be spared,” he warned.
There were protests in Hyderabad and elsewhere in the state on Saturday. Banners with the slogan “Go back Modi. No entry to Telangana” were put up by the roads and black balloons were released.
The PM also took a swipe at Telangana CM K Chandrasekhar Rao’s “superstitious” beliefs. “The city of Hyderabad is a major IT hub, but what I see here is superstition decides who gets dropped from the cabinet, who will go where, where to live and office location. People here want development. BJP will place people first and not the family first. He set ‘Mission Telangana’ in motion for the party workers and told them to go to every polling booth. “Explain to people about the central schemes and benefits and help them if they are not getting the benefits.”
He sounded optimistic about BJP’s rise in Telangana. “In 1984, we had just two Lok Sabha seats, one of which was from Hanamkonda in Telangana…The party has grown with more than 300 MPs. Telangana has always stood by us in difficult times.”
