Modi Slams 'Pariwarwaadi' Govts in Hyderabad; 'Stop Bhaashanbaazi,' Says CM KCR

At a rally in Hyderabad, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Thursday, 26 May, that 'pariwarwaadi' (dynastic) parties were not concerned about the development of poor people but only about how one family could stay in power and "loot as much as they can."

Taking a dig at Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao, the PM accused the state government of corruption.

Meanwhile, reacting to PM Modi's jab on his home turf, Rao quipped that while there were a lot of 'bhaashanbaazi' (speeches) and promises, the reality was something else.

"Industries are closing down, GDP is falling, inflation is increasing... Farmers, Dalits, and tribals are unhappy," the Telangana leader said.

Modi said on Thursday,

"Pariwarwaadi (family-based) parties only think about their own development. These parties do not care about the poor people, their politics is focused on how a single-family can stay in power and loot as much as they can.”

'Dynasty Politics Is Biggest Enemy of Democracy'

Attacking the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) government, Modi said that the entire country was watching how the people in Telangana were suffering, adding that BJP workers were also being targeted in the state.

He stated that the country’s youth was not getting a chance to enter politics because of dynastic parties and that such parties were the "biggest enemy of democracy."

He said that he envisioned India as free from dynasty politics, which would pave the way for development in the nation.

"Our country has seen how corruption becomes the face of those political parties dedicated to one family," Modi said.

Speaking about the growth of science and technology in the state, he said that he believed in the development of science and wanted to save Telangana from "superstitions."

He said,

"I want to tell the people of Telangana that even in the 21st century, there are people who believe in superstitions. Such people who believe in superstitions can harm anybody. These superstitious people can never bring justice to the people of Telangana."

Modi said that the BJP's aim was to transform the state into a technology hub.

Praising Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, he said that he was a saint but "does not believe in superstitions."


India Needs To Rise Beyond ‘Isms’ and Speeches: KCR

Hitting back at the prime minister, Rao, popularly known as KCR, said that a big change was coming at the national level and "nobody can stop it."

The TRS chief said, "Nobody is happy. There will be change at the national level. Nobody can stop it. You'll get sensational news in two-three months."

"India will change. Talks always happen. This country needs to rise beyond 'isms' and speeches," he added.

The chief minister's remarks came hours after his meeting with former prime minister HD Devegowda in Bengaluru, which was attended by Devegowda's son and former Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy.

KCR said that they discussed issues regarding national politics and Karnataka politics.
