Hyderabad, Nov 22: Congress MP and Huzurnagar candidate Capt N Uttam Kumar Reddy asserted on Tuesday that the common people are unwilling to trust Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao, and they will elect the Congress party to power in the upcoming Assembly elections.

Speaking to media persons on the sidelines of various election meetings in Huzurnagar today, Reddy stated that the BRS party has lost the people’s trust, and no one believes in KCR. “KCR has deceived the people with fake promises and false assurances in the last two elections. Therefore, people are not willing to undergo the same experience in these elections,” he said.

Reddy reminded that the TRS (now BRS) released a 32-page manifesto with 75 major promises in the 2014 Assembly elections. The promises included Free KG to PG Education, 2BHK houses for the homeless, 12% reservation for Muslims and STs, and 3 acres of land for Dalits and STs, etc. Those promises were incredibly appealing, and people voted in favor of the TRS party. He said similar deceptive tactics were used during the 2018 elections, although CM KCR confined his party’s manifesto to just 16 pages with 24 major promises. Again, several new promises like the allowance of Rs. 3,016 to the jobless youth were promised and none of them were fulfilled, he said.

“Having realized that he won’t be able to cheat the common people again, this time, KCR confined his manifesto to a single page with just 16 promises. However, people won’t trust him as they have been deceived twice,” he claimed.

Reddy said that there has been a tremendous public response to the six guarantees titled “Abhay Hastham” announced by the Congress party. Furthermore, he stated that all sections of society were covered in the Congress manifesto, addressing the special needs of women, students, farmers, youth, SC, STC, BC, and minorities. He mentioned that 37 different topics have been covered in the manifesto, specific needs were identified, and assurance has been given to resolve them.

The Congress leader said that all six guarantees would be fulfilled by the next Congress government within six months after coming to power. They include Rs 2,500 monthly financial assistance to women, gas cylinders at Rs 500, Free travel for women in TSRTC buses across the state, and Rs 200 units of free electricity for all households.

“The Congress party made all realistic promises, and unlike KCR, we will fulfill all of them,” he said.
