“5 years ago, people of Telangana had hoped for a new Telangana. You had dreamt of Neellu, Nidhulu, Niyamakaalu. People believed that CM KCR will fulfil their dreams and this trust was broken by KCR Govt:” said the congress President Congress President
He also accused TRS of acting as B-team of Sangh parivar
“The name of TRS is not the Telangana Rashtra Samithi but the Telangana Rashtra Sangh Parivar Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) it is the "B-team" of Sangh Parivar, said Gandhi on Wednesday, November 27, accusing TRS of helping the Modi government to prevent the Congress from ousting the BJP at the Centre.
"When we were fighting over land acquisition bill in parliament, TRS was helping BJP. TRS helped RSS and Modi in every bill. TRS is not Telangana Rashtra Samithi, it is Telangana Rashtra Sangh parivar. It is the 'B-team' of Sangh Parivar. TRS' aim is that Congress should not oust the BJP at the national level," Gandhi told the public rally.
Gandhi blamed the Rao-led government of giving employment to his family members while failing to give jobs to crore of unemployed youths.
“Every person in Telangana has ₹60,000 debt on them, but KCR's son's income is increases by 400%: Congress President”
“ While the educated graduates in Telangana are desperately looking for jobs, the KCR government has been imitating PM Modi by creating unemployment.” he said
"How many people got employment in the last four years of KCR? He only gave employment to four people of his family who snatched the employment of four crore people in the state. What did he do for the women who are the backbone of the state?
“First we will beat KCR on here, then defeat Narendra Modi in Delhi in 2019” said the Congress president
"KCR promised to provide 22 lakh double bedroom houses. But the reality is only 5,000 houses have been built. He promised land to SC/ST which has turned out to be a hollow promise."
If the Congress came to power, Gandhi said people would get land and houses. "Our Chief Minister will give youths employment or Rs 3,000 allowance. In the first year, our government will give employment to 1 lakh youths in private and government sectors."
“Women are the backbone of Telangana, so Congress govt will provide ₹1 lakh grant to every Self Help Groups & ₹500cr will be allocated to women entrepreneurs” said Congress President

Finally the Congress president targeted Narendra Modi for his divisive and hateful politics and blamed KCR of supporting such politics
“Narendra Modi works to divide the country. He spreads hatred in the country and what they did in the state of Telangana, against tribals, minorities, they could not have done it without the aid of the Chief Minister of Telangana”
“First we will beat KCR on here, then defeat Narendra Modi in Delhi in 2019" said the Congress president
