Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said on Friday that his party will topple the K Chandrashekar Rao-led government and form their own government in the state. According to him, the upcoming Assembly elections in Telangana will be a direct fight between the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) and the Congress.

Taking an apparent jibe at the Chief Minister Rao, the Gandhi scion said that while the dream of Telangana’s progress remained unfulfilled, only one family had “benefitted immensely” after the state was carved out of Andhra Pradesh.

“We will topple TRS in elections and it will be a direct battle between Congress and TRS… The person who has ruined the dream of Telangana, and stolen lakhs and crores from the youth, poor, we will not forgive them,” said Rahul Gandhi.

“To fulfil the dream of Telangana, people gave their blood and tears & fought for it. We also stood by you. Eventually, the Congress party & Sonia Gandhi gave a new state to its people despite knowing that it’ll harm us,” he added.

Rahul Gandhi was addressing the ‘Rythu Sangharshana Sabha’, a farmers’ rally organised to highlight their plight. The former Congress chief said that if the party comes to power Rs 2 lakh farm loans will be waived off.

“Telangana’s farmers need not be scared. As soon as Congress forms govt, Rs 2 lakh (farm) loans will be waived off and you (farmers) will get the right MSP. This will be done in a few month’s time (of Congress forming govt),” he said.

He also launched a scathing attack on KCR, saying he was acting like a “king” instead of a chief minister. He alleged that the CM was not listening to farmers but to his 2-3 “crony capitalist friends”.

“BJP knows Congress will never end up in a deal with them, which is why it wants TRS govt in Telangana. Its proof is that Telangana CM can steal as much money as he wants and BJP govt (Centre) doesn’t send ED after him,” he added.
