Senior BJP leader and Union Minister for Tourism & Culture Kishan Reddy on Friday demanded that every Dalit family in Telangana should get the benefits of the Dalit Bandhu scheme. Addressing a meeting after the filing of nomination papers of Etela Rajender on Friday, he said that the bypolls in the Huzurabad are between democratic rule and dictatorship.
Kishan Reddy said that the ruling TRS party is resorting to many illegal activities and is spending crores of money to win the bypolls at any cost. He also said that the ruling TRS party has been foisting false cases against the BJP. He alleged that Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao will come up with new promises ahead of elections and later he would forget them. He lashed out at KCR and said that he promised to give 3 acres of land to Dalits but to date, it didn't happen. He said that KCR would change the tune according to his convenience.
Kishan Reddy further stated that Etela Rajender should get the credit of Dalit Bandhu because, after Etela's resignation, KCR announced the Dalit Bandhu scheme.
Kishan Reddy, Bandi Sanjay, and Etela Rajender urged people to vote for the BJP and expressed hope that he would win the bypolls. Etela said, "I request all democratic-minded people, those who had participated in the separate State agitation and like-minded to campaign against the arrogance of power of KCR and ensure my victory."
