BJP State president K. Laxman, former Union minister Bandaru Dattatreya, Union Minister of State for Panchayati Raj Parushottam Rupala and Amberpet MLA G. Kishan Reddy in Hyderabad on Thursday.
Former Union minister and senior BJP leader Bandaru Dattatreya on Thursday charged chief ministers of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh — K. Chandrasekhar Rao and N. Chandrababu Naidu — of falling into the ‘Congress trap’ in opposing the NDA government and stalling Parliament proceedings during the Budget session.
Mr. Dattatreya was addressing a gathering during his one-day ‘Fast to Save Democracy’ here on a call made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to hold a countrywide programme by BJP MPs and Central ministers to highlight the recent disruption of Parliament proceedings.
The BJP leader claimed that the Congress and rest of Opposition parties want to halt the developmental activities by ensuring the Budget session conducts no business as they were worried at the increasing popularity of the Modi government for its various initiatives to help the poor and the downtrodden.
“There is not a single corruption charge against the government and Modi has no family to promote unlike KCR and Naidu who both wish to anoint their respective sons to the Chief Minister post. The Centre did a lot to TS but the CM here criticises us whereas Naidu after being our ally for four years is calling PM a dictator for his own selfish ends,” he said.
Mr. Dattatreya also sought to assure that all the scamsters including Nirav Modi and others will be brought to justice and their assets will be seized for use in nation’s development. Union Minister of State for Agriculture Parushotham Rupala said for the first time the PM was not allowed to speak for about two hours which was unprecedented.
“It showed the respect Congress and other parties have for democracy and Parliament. Mr. Modi has sacrificed his life for the nation,” he claimed. BJP TS chief K. Laxman saw a conspiracy in the way Parliament was not allowed to function and observed that the Congress Party does not see anyone beyond the Nehru family to rule the country.
He decried efforts made to divide the nation on caste lines and instigating Dalits. His colleague N. Ramachandra Rao felt that believers in democracy will have to hang their heads in shame the manner in which the ‘Temple of Democracy’ is being sullied with the actions of the Opposition. Other leaders like G. Kishan Reddy, Venkat Reddy, Venkatramani and others also spoke.
