HYDERABAD: Launching a scathing attack on the ruling BJP at the Centre and TRS in Telangana, Congress leader Digvijaya Singh today claimed that both of them have failed to fulfil their election promises.

"We will give Rs 15 lakh (after recovering black money). This promise was made or not? Has Rs 15 lakh been deposited in your account? Neither Narendra Modi nor KCR (Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao) fulfilled their election promises. It was only Congress party, led by Sonia Gandhi that fulfilled promises," the AICC General Secretary said.

He was addressing a campaign meeting here for the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) elections scheduled to be held on February 2.

The campaign for city civic body elections picked up with senior leaders of ruling TRS, opposition Congress and the TDP-BJP combine taking part in intensive campaign.

Telangana IT Minister K T Rama Rao, son of Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, talked about plans to make Hyderabad a world-class city.

Rama Rao has also been reaching out to Seemandhra natives amid opposition parties' allegations that the TRS had insulted them during separate statehood agitation.

The TRS government emphasised on ensuring adequate supply of water and electricity, beside promoting IT after the formation of Telangana, he said.

Union Ministers Nitin Gadkari, Radha Mohan Singh, Hansraj Ahir and Bandaru Dattatreya have already campaigned in support of the BJP-TDP alliance.
