New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday hit out at Telangana chief minister K Chandrashekhar Rao and accused him of walking on Congress party’s path. Addressing a rally in Nizamabad district of poll bound Telangana, PM Modi said,”He (KCR) is walking on Congress’ path. He thinks that if Congress can win elections without doing anything, he too can do it. But he must know that youth of the state are aware of the ground realities.”Also Read - PM Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana: Good News For Farmers, Govt to Disburse Pending Amount Along With Next Installment
The Prime Minister also called him insecure for refusing to connect the state with the scheme of Ayushman Bharat.”Ayushmaan Bharat was launched 2 months ago, nearly 3 lakh families have availed its benefits. Serious operations have been done, people’s lives have been saved. Yet, not a single person from Telangana availed its benefits, your CM is responsible for it,” asserted Modi.

Escalating his attack on KCR and Congress, PM Modi further said,”TRS and Congress are two sides of the same coin. They both follow vote bank politics, appeasement of minorities, believe in dynastic politics and none of them have internal democracy. But we believe in ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’. We do not believe in vote-bank politics.” Also Read - PM Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana: Farmers to Get Rs 4000 Soon, Register Yourself Before Sept 30
The Prime Minister also took a dig at Telangana CM over his claim to transform Nizamabad into London saying,”The Chief Minister of this state says he will transform Nizamabad into London. But look at the condition of this region. The region lacks development.”
