New Delhi: Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao seems to be very focused towards his 2019 elections even after dissolving the assembly in his state. However, he dissolved the assembly elections so that state elections will not coincide with 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
The BJP has previously alleged that KCR dissolved the state Assembly and meeting West Bengal counterpart Mamata Banerjee as he has PM ambitions.
On Sunday, he confirmed that he will form the party without the help of Congress and Bhartiya Janata Party.
In an interview to NDTV, Telangana CM said that ‘India needs to change and the beginning will be from Hyderabad.’
He added that he is doing for the sake of the country and called himself a warrior, not a beggar.
For making the federal front, he has also talked to other party leaders like Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
“I’m a warrior, not a beggar. Now I want to change in Indian politics, I’ll do my best.”
Asked which party – BJP and Congress – is worse, TRS supremo said both are more than worse. He said, “Both are more than worse, they are about centralising powers. They are not doing what they should do. I am very clear in my mind, we will not align with anybody, we will align with the masses of India.”
Sharing his opinion on political rival Telegu Desam Party chief N Chandrababu Naidu, KCR accused him of being the ‘B Team of the BJP’. The Telangana CM even opined that his AP counterpart has ‘no policy at all’ to contest in the Assembly elections.
Claiming the TRS will sweep the Assembly elections by a landslide margin, KCR said, “We will win this election. It will be a landslide victory.” The Assembly elections in the state for 119 seats will take place on Friday, whose results will be declared on December 11.
