Hyderabad: MLC K Kavitha, expressing unwavering confidence in her party, BRS, stated in an exclusive interview that they have set a target of securing between 95 and 100 seats in the upcoming November 30 assembly polls in Telangana. She confidently asserted that the people of Telangana are firmly behind their party and emphasized that the state, according to a Central government survey, stands as the least corrupt state in India.
Dismissing Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s allegations that BRS is aligned with the BJP, Kavitha questioned the silence of the saffron party regarding cases filed by the Enforcement Directorate against several Congress leaders, including Sonia Gandhi. She refuted the corruption accusations made by Rahul Gandhi against Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao’s government, citing the official Central government survey that recognizes Telangana as the least corrupt state in the nation.
Highlighting BRS’s achievements over the past decade, Kavitha pointed out the significant growth in the state’s budget, which has increased from around ₹69,000 crore in 2014 to nearly ₹3 lakh crore now. Additionally, she mentioned the remarkable threefold increase in per capita income, from ₹1.24 lakh in 2014 to ₹3.12 lakh.
Regarding Rahul Gandhi’s promises, specifically the commitment to provide financial support to turmeric farmers, Kavitha dismissed these pledges as unfeasible. She emphasized that the Congress, during its tenure, had never provided a minimum support price for commercial crops.
Addressing allegations of collaboration between BRS, BJP, and AIMIM, Kavitha clarified that BRS is not in alliance with any party. While acknowledging AIMIM as a friendly party, she stated that there has been no formal alliance in the past two terms and reiterated that this remains the case in the current elections.
