Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao said that he would play a major role in national politics and wanted to bring a change at the centre. Telangana Rashtra Samithi is going to come up with the party's policy outlook toward national politics. In the upcoming TRS Plenary meeting that is going to be held on April 27th, the party will not only focus on Telangana's model of development but also trigger a discussion on how the ruling party at the centre is failing to make the country go on the development path.
KTR questioned, "If a young State like Telangana is able to provide power round the clock to all sectors, increase agricultural output by completing construction of irrigation projects and also register new records in IT exports as well as industrial development, why does not centre do the same? Why people of this country should be denied such facilities?" He stated that India needs a golden Telangana model but not a Golmaal Gujarat model.
During an informal interaction with reporters on Sunday, KTR said that Bharatiya Janata Party is not showing any interest in addressing the issues like unemployment, economy, malnutrition and doubling farmers’ income, etc. He stated, "The BJP does not have any agenda or subject to deliver. It is only interested in creating unrest and gain some seats. But people of Telangana are not gullible to these tactics."
He further added that "The BJP could not establish itself in States like Telangana, Odisha, West Bengal, Tamil Nadu and even Punjab, where the strong regional parties were giving a run for the money."
He said, "In fact, I don’t agree with terming Congress and BJP as national parties. They are just bigger regional parties. While you cannot find Congress in many States, the BJP which is present in a large number of States cannot be seen in the Southern States except Karnataka."
