TRS Supported Modi Govt, Not BJP!

TRS Supported Modi Govt, Not BJP!

Telangana Rashtra Samithi legislator and former MP Kalvakuntla Kavitha on Friday admitted that her party had indeed supported some of the decisions of the Narendra Modi government in the past, but clarified that it did not mean supporting the BJP.

In an informal interaction with media, Kavitha said the TRS had voted in favour of GST Bills and abstained from triple talaq bill etc.

“It was just issue-based with no political motive or agenda. But when it came to the anti-people policies of the NDA government, we strongly opposed it,” she said.

Kavitha said though the TRS had supported some of the decisions of the NDA government in the interest of the people, the latter had never reciprocated in the same way to help younger states like Telangana purely for political reasons. “People are watching everything and they will respond in a befitting manner,” she said.

The TRS leader felt that the days of the Congress party being an alternative to the BJP have gone.

“The Congress is no more a national party, but has become a notional party. It has been reduced to the level of a state-level party. So, it is no more an alternative to the BJP,” she said.

That is precisely why the TRS has revived the attempt to stitch together all the anti-BJP forces to fight against the anti-farmer and anti-labour policies of the NDA government.

KCR has decided to host a conclave of all like minded parties in the second week of December and it is getting good response from the Centre, she said.

“The main focus of the conclave would be on fighting the anti-farmer and anti-labour policies of the BJP government,” she said.

When asked if Congress leaders too would be invited to the conclave, Kavitha said the TRS President will take a call on the issue and added that the heads of various political parties were constantly in contact with him in this regard.
