KCR decides to fight it out with Modi

The aggressive statements made by Telangana Rashtra Samithi president and chief minister K Chandrashekar Rao on Tuesday against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP government at the Centre clearly showed that he is a confrontationist attitude with the Centre.

KCR reportedly discussed the latest political developments in the state with his cabinet colleagues on Tuesday.

He told them that the BJP was likely to pose a threat to the TRS in the coming days and Modi was deliberately ignoring him only with a view to suppress the TRS.

He is understood to have said the BJP was overestimating its strength in Telangana, following its victory in four seats in Lok Sabha elections.

What hurt him more was the defeat of his daughter Kalvakuntla Kavitha in the hands of BJP candidate Dharmapuri Aravind, son of TRS MP D Srinivas who happens to be keeping away from the TRS for about a year.

That is why he gave went to his frustration at Modi saying he had called the Prime Minister a “fascist’ and he stood by what he said.

He defended his decision not to invite Modi to the inauguration of Kaleshwaram project on June 21, stating that there was no need to call the Prime Minister for every function.

He also castigated the BJP government for not helping the state in any manner, whether it is releasing of funds to Kaleshwaram or other projects – Mission Bhagiratha and Mission Kakatiya.

KCR skipped PM Narendra Modi’s swearing in on May 30 and also the NITI Aayog meeting chaired by PM last week.

He also did not want to see Modi’s face at the all-party meeting being held in New Delhi on Wednesday on one-nation-one-poll concept.

He even said he would try to resolve all the disputes with the neighbouring states without involving the Centre or tribunals.
