Telangana: Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Saturday released Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) manifesto for Telangana Assembly election saying this (manifesto) is about guarantees by PM Modi.

"Today, we are releasing the BJP manifesto for Telangana Assembly elections. The manifesto is about guarantees by PM Modi," said Union Home Minister Amit Shah.

"Prime Minister Modi has done a lot of work to help strengthen and empower the state of Telangana," he said.

"The Congress Party, during 2004-14, released only Rs 2 lakh crore as devolution and grant-in-aid for 'Sanyukt Andhra Pradesh', whereas the BJP government under PM Modi's leadership released Rs 2 lakh 50 thousand crore in just 9 years for this state," Amit Shah said.

"This manifesto is PM Modi's guarantee. We have always fulfilled the promises we have made, kept our promises and fulfilled our promises after getting full majority. Congress had never supported the separate state and when the hasty division was carried out, it gave Telangana in an unnatural manner," he said.
