In a veiled attack on Telangana Chief Minister Revanth Reddy, Modi alleged that the money collected in the state through “double R (RR) tax” is being channeled to Delhi.

Alleging that the Congress would impose 55 per cent inheritance tax if voted to power, Modi said when the whole world was economically progressing, India was suffering from policy paralysis under the previous UPA government. “If Congress comes to power, they will bring inheritance tax.

Taking a dig at the Congress, he said whenever the grand old party is in power, it has five political symbols– first, false promises; second, vote bank politics, third, supporting mafia and criminals, fourth dynastic politics and fifth is corruption. Modi further alleged that first it was BRS, which looted Telangana and now it is Congress.
