Launching a blistering attack on Opposition parties including the TRS, Congress, TDP and AIMIM of perpetuating dynastic and family rule, PM Modi on Monday said that hese parties were becoming a "threat to democracy".
Addressing an election rally in Hyderabad, PM Modi said that of the five parties contesting the Telangana Assembly election, only the BJP was being run democratically.
"In Telangana, what we are seeing is dynastic politics. Out of all the parties which are contesting these elections, only one party, the BJP, values democratic ideals," he said.

Prime Minister Modi further claimed that the Congress and the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) are "two sides of the same coin." "Before elections in Karnataka, the Congress was repeatedly saying the Janata Dal-Secular is the BJP's B team, but we all know what happened after elections. The same thing can happen in Telangana," he added.
Targeting TRS chief and caretaker Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, he said, "Nobody has given one family the right to loot."
Modi recalled that Rao was earlier in the Youth Congress and had his first "apprenticeship" in the TDP, noting that he was also a minister in the UPA-I government.
Lashing out at Congress President Rahul Gandhi, PM Modi said that he always "forgets what he says, as he delivers his speeches with the help of notes provided by his aides."
The prime minister said; " Naamdaar (Rahul Gandhi) always fails to remember what he had said earlier. He also fails to recall where he has said a particular thing and in which context. He is handed over the chit and he reads from it."
"The Congress party is tolerating Rahul Gandhi till he attains some talent. The party has no internal democracy and four generations of one family have ruled the Congress," added PM Modi.
Telangana Assembly elections are due on December 7, while the counting of votes will take place on 11 December.
