NAGARKURNOOL (Telangana) : Addressing a public rally in Nagarkurnool, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Sunday launched a scathing attack against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) saying that BJP is against reservation.

“BJP wants to finish reservation… They have always been against reservation,” said Rahul Gandhi.

Lashing out further he said, “Their senior leaders say that reservation should be ended. RSS top leader said reservation should be done with.”

Meanwhile, Union Home Minister Amit Shah slammed the Congress and the Bharat Rashtra Samithi formerly known as Telangana Rashtra Samithi and said that both the parties are afraid of AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi.

While addressing a public meeting in Adilabad, Shah said, “Can TRS save Telangana from Razakars? No. Both Congress and TRS are afraid of Owaisi. The ‘ABC’ of appeasement in Telangana means A for Asaduddin Owaisi, B for BRS, and C for Congress. The Congress party which is afraid of Owaisi cannot work for the welfare of Telangana.”

He further promised the people of Telangana that once the BJP is voted to power, the party will end the reservation given to Muslims and will instead give reservation benefits to Dalits and Adivasis in the state.

“Once voted to power, we will end the Muslim reservations in Telangana and will instead give reservation benefits to Dalits and Adivasis in the state. The Congress party has snatched the rights of SCs, STs and OBCs to give the same to Muslims. But I assure you that we will undo this injustice,” Shah said.

Notably, in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) (now known as the BRS) won 9 seats, the BJP secured 4 seats, the Congress won 3 seats, and the AIMIM emerged victorious in 1 seat.

The voting of the first and second phases was concluded and the next round of voting will be held on May 7. The counting of votes will be held on June 4. (ANI)
