HYDERABAD: Charged after the inauguration of the Sardar Patel statue in Gujarat, though amid widespread criticism from various quarters, BJP spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi attacked TRS for not delivering the 125-metre BR Ambedkar statue as promised. Campaigning for the saffron party in Telangana, she raked up unfulfilled promises of TRS.
“Hyderabad has not gotten the statue that was promised by TRS to empower Dalits,” she said. Citing the Patel statue, she said that all BJP governed States had a habit of fulfilling promises. She also attacked TRS for not delivering on the 2-BHK housing scheme and disbursement of 3-acre plots to Dalits.
Taking a dig at the Pragati Bhavan, she asked if any Bhavan was ever created in Telangana for empowerment of weaker sections of the society. “KCR has constructed the Pragati Bhavan for himself, which, apparently, is his workplace. For the first time I am seeing a Chief Minsiter who refuses to go to the Secretariat,” she said.
She claimed KCR does not believe in cooperative federalism as he hadn’t implemented many of Centre’s schemes in Telangana. Attacking the Grand Alliance, Lekhi called it an alliance of “families.”
