Union Minister Prakash Javadekar expressed hope that BJP would definitely secure a win in the upcoming GHMC elections. He said on Sunday that BJP is going to repeat its success story again just like the result of Dubbak assembly bypoll. Speaking after releasing a 'charge sheet' against the TRS, he alleged that the TRS government failed to fulfil its poll promises and also accused the party of indulging in corruption.
He further added that "TRS made a promise to make Hyderabad a Global City but the city has been made into a flood city." The union minister said that, "The question is whether a MIM's Mayor is needed or BJP's Mayor is needed. The elections are being contested on this question. Because a vote to KCR means a vote to the MIM. Vote to Congress means a vote to the MIM and vote to MIM means for the division. And hence this time the people here have decided that a Mayor should be from BJP."
He called TRS and AIMIM as 'dynastic' parties. He alleged that "It is KCR and KTR in TRS and Asaduddin Owaisi and Akbaruddin Owaisi in AIMIM. We have seen in the last six years these parties indulged in loot. There is debt on state and assets in KCR's name. The assets of KCR and his friends are growing while assets of state are declining and its debts are growing. And because of this BJP brought out a charge sheet highlighting the 60 failures of TRS which has run away from keeping its promises."
He said the TRS government did not fulfil its promises to provide one lakh government jobs, making one lakh 2 bedrooms, hall and kitchen houses. He alleged that there is a lot of corruption and irregularities took place in the disbursement of Rs 10,000, a financial assistance to each flood-affected household in Hyderabad. He further stated that only a few people got the money.
