Hyderabad, July 3 (NSS): Calling Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao a pseudo secular, newly appointed President of Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) & MP A. Revanth Reddy appealed to the minorities to reconnect with the Congress party to defeat communal forces at the national level.
Revanth was addressing a meeting with the minorities’ leaders organised by former minister Mohammed Ali Shabbir at his residence in Jubilee Hills on Saturday. The meeting was held to discuss arrangements for the swearing in ceremony of Revanth Reddy as TPCC President at Gandhi Bhavan on July 7.
Speaking on the occasion, Reddy said that the BJP has been polarizing the elections by accusing the Congress party of Muslim appeasement. On the other side, the Muslim community has been supporting regional parties like TRS who are ultimately supporting the BJP at the national level. He said this trend has caused immense damage to the secular fabric of India. He said that the Congress party never appeased any particular community and it only ensured social justice by giving equal opportunities to all the communities without any discrimination.
Revanth called CM CKR an agent of BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Citing several instances, he said KCR has supported the BJP in all its anti-minorities moves. He said TRS MPs supported the BJP Govt in Triple Talaq Bill and did not oppose the Citizenship Amendment Act or National Register of Citizenship. Despite repeated demands by the Congress party, he said that the TRS Government did not pass a resolution in the Assembly opposing CAA and NRC. He said Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has rightly described TRS as B-Team of BJP. Both BJP and TRS are enacting the drama of political rivalry to cheat and mislead the people of Telangana.
Revanth Reddy also ridiculed CM KCR’s claims of empowering the Muslim community. “By giving the post of Home Minister to a Muslim, KCR thinks that he has empowered the entire community. Congress has made a Muslim (M.M. Hasham) the Home Minister of the then united Andhra Pradesh when KCR was a school student. A Muslim leader, Kamaluddin, was made the APCC President. Shabbir Ali was the Leader of Opposition in the Legislative Council till recently. Congress party also has the credit of giving the top posts of President of India, Vice President, Chief Minister and Governor to members of the Muslim community,” he said.
