Indira Gandhi Govt. Plagued By Starvation Deaths: Alleged KCR

Alampur/Kolhapur/Hyderabad, Nov 19 (Maxim News): Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao today alleged that the former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi’s regime was plagued by starvation deaths, naxal movements and encounters.

Addressing rallies in the state, KCR said the Congress leaders should feel ashamed to seek votes as they were not able to provide drinking water during their rule even when the Krishna river was flowing nearby at Kollapur.

The Chief Minister further alleged that the grand old party delayed the formation of Telangana and even tried to split the BRS party (then TRS) besides purchasing its MLAs. Taking a swipe at the Congress for invoking the late Indira Gandhi, he said, “Congress promises to bring Indiramma Rajyam in Telangana, what happened during Indiramma Rajyam? hunger and only hunger deaths, naxalite movements, people were shot dead and encounters, this is what happened throughout Indiramma Rajyam.

KCR recalled that until former Chief Minister NT Rama Rao (undivided Andhra Pradesh) came to power and offered rice at Rs 2 per kg to people, it was only a life of hunger. “There is no regime worse than that of indiramma, they have looted and left people in the lurch, ” the CM said. KCR asked people to compare the 50 years Congress rule with that of 10 year sof BRS government and see for themselves the development that took place under his regime. 

Raking up the merger issue, he alleged that it was Congress party that merged Telangana and Andhra Pradesh without the consent of people here resulting in sufferings for 50 years. It was the BRS government that increased the social pension upto Rs. 2000, which were just meagre before 2014, he added. He promised to enhance the existing social pension and the amount given under Rythu Bandhu scheme in a phased manner if the BRS government is voted to power again.
