Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday inaugurated several vital infrastructure projects, emphasising the sectors of power, rail connectivity, and healthcare in Telangana. While addressing a public rally the PM revealed how BRS leader and Telangana CM KC Rao wanted to join NDA but was refused.
"When BJP won 48 seats in the Hyderabad Municipal Corporation election, KCR needed support. Before this election, he used to welcome me at the airport, but later suddenly he stopped doing so. After the Hyderabad Municipal Corporation elections, KCR met me in Delhi and said he wanted to join NDA. He also asked me to extend support to him. I told him (KCR) that due to his deeds Modi cannot be associated with him..," the PM said.
In a scathing attack on the Congress, PM Modi said, "My sisters from Telangana have been part of a big revolution, created history. A few days ago the Nari Shakti Vandan Adhiniyam was passed in Parliament. Congress and its INDI alliance - this 'ghamandiya' alliance- had stalled this bill for the last 30 years. Due to the collective power of women, this alliance has to support the passing of this bill," he added.
One of the major projects which was inaugurated was the first 800 MW unit of phase 1 of the Telangana Super Thermal Power Project by the National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC). This project is set to provide the state with access to cost-effective power, which is expected to fuel its economic development. "Today, I got the opportunity to give the present of over Rs 8000 crore development projects to Telangana. These projects include a modern NTPC plant which will give new speed to the industrial development of the state. The majority portion of the electricity produced by this NTPC plant will be used by Telangana which will help improve ease of living," he said.
