Telangana caretaker IT Minister KT Rama Rao lashed out at Congress President Rahul Gandhi and asked the party to first get its facts right before it criticized the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) in the state. Meanwhile, when asking Rahul Gandhi to read history before speaking publicly, KTR told reporters at Telangana Bhavan on Saturday evening that the Congress President only spoke half-truths and lies.
Furthermore, Gandhi said it was only KCR's family which "cornered" all the benefits and said only Congress could build a Telangana which is free from corruption and farmers' suicides. Meanwhile, on his first visit to Telangana after the announcement of the poll schedule, Gandhi later addressed public meetings in Kamareddy and Hyderabad later in the day.
Moreover, he also alleged that KCR insulted B.R. Ambedkar by changing the name of an irrigation project in the state to Kaleshwaram. Hence he claimed that KCR was resorting to corruption in irrigation projects by redesigning them to benefit his family and friends. He said "This project was named after Ambedkar and was to be built at a cost of Rs 38,000 crore but KCR has revised the cost to Rs 1 lakh crore. Moreover, other irrigation projects were also redesigned to hike their cost". Hence KTR denied both the allegations and asked Gandhi to check his facts.
