'Several Eknath Shindes In TRS': BJP Hits Out At KCR

The BJP on Sunday hit out at Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao over his critical remarks on the party, saying that Mr Rao political days are numbered and "there are several Eknath Shindes" in his party, the Telangana Rashtra Samithi, or TRS.

Addressing a Press Conference, Telangana BJP state president Bandi Sanjay said, "How does Chief Minister KCR know what happens in the BJP National Executive Committee meeting? You are a state Chief Minister who is saying that the BJP doesn't have any strategy. If the BJP doesn't have any strategy then how can it be in power in 18 states. The language Chief Minister is using is very shameful," he said.

The BJP State chief said that there is a huge difference between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister KCR.

"Are you desh ki neta (leader of the country)? And you comparing yourself with PM Modi. PM Modi works 18 hours a day and you (KCR) don't even come out of your farmhouse. Everyone is laughing at you calling yourself desh ki neta," Bandi Sanjay, who is also MP from Karimnagar, said.

The BJP's strong remarks came after KCR launched a blistering attack on the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday. During the press address, Mr Rao said that "Narendra Modi Government should go and a non-BJP government should come".

"Thanks to Indira Gandhi, she was bold enough to declare an Emergency. It was a direct, declared Emergency. But today in India, there is an undeclared Emergency," he said.

Referring to KCR's statements on Maharasthra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde, Bandi Sanjay said, "You are speaking about Eknath Shinde, first, take a look at your own party. I think there are many Eknath Shindes in TRS. That might also be the reason behind him (KCR) mentioning Eknath Shinde several times. He fears that leaders like Eknath Shinde are growing in his own party."

He said while the Karnataka Chief Minister goes to meet people during floods, KCR did not move out of his farmhouse. "Karnataka CM is visiting flood-affected areas. Did you even step out of your farmhouse?"

"Anyone can become Eknath Shinde in his party, it might be his son KTR, daughter (K Kavitha), or nephew (Harish Rao)," he added.
