“Let him decide the place and time, and I am ready to debate the issue. BJP will never align with a party in touch with MIM. The reality is that both Congress and BRS are joining forces, with Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao and Sonia Gandhi holding talks to mutually assist each other. Their goal is to keep BJP away from power, and they are making every effort to achieve that,” stated Kishan Reddy while addressing reporters on Monday.

The BJP leader asserted that in 2024, Narendra Modi would become the Prime Minister, and no one could prevent that outcome. He defended the proposal to change Hyderabad’s name to Bhagyanagar, citing the renaming of several cities across India even where BJP was not in power.

“People want to rid themselves of BRS, deciding to confine him to the farmhouse. Both BRS and Congress are making impractical promises. Telangana needs three times the current budget. Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed meetings at Kamareddy and Gajwel, where KCR is contesting, and received a positive response from the public, particularly the youth. Chandrasekhar Rao will be defeated in both places, and our candidates Etala Rajender and G. Venkataramana Reddy will emerge victorious,” added Kishan Reddy, dismissing TPCC president A. Revanth Reddy’s candidacy as an attempt to save KCR from defeat.

He criticized both BRS and Congress for engaging in appeasement politics with MIM, highlighting their minority declarations and promises. Kishan Reddy questioned KCR’s commitments to increasing minority reservations and criticized the lack of development in the old city, raising concerns about education, drainage, and the metro route diversion.

Regarding allegations that the Centre has not sanctioned medical colleges for Telangana, Kishan Reddy challenged the Chief Minister to release 50 per cent of the letters he has written to the Centre, pledging to quit politics if proven otherwise.

He also warned against the possibility of a “suitcase government” if Congress comes to power, accusing them of being controlled by Rahul Gandhi.
