For the last few days, Telangana Rashtra Samithi leaders and Majlis-e-Ittahadul Muslimeen president Asaduddin Owaisi have been making a big propaganda that chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao could as well become the Prime Minister of the country, if the TRS gets 16 MP seats in the Lok Sabha elections.
Their argument is that regional parties would get bigger number of seats than the BJP and the Congress party and therefore, they could form the government.
Since KCR with 16 seats would become a big force and he has been pushing forward the national agenda for development, all the regional parties will elect him as the Prime Minister.
This was ridiculed by BJP national president Amit Shah. Addressing a meeting at Shamshabad, Shah sought to know how winning sixteen seats in Telangana would make KCR the prime minister of the country.
“There is a Modi wave sweeping across the country. People of the nation want Modi as their prime minister one more time, only Modi can give a strong leadership to the country,” Shah said.
He said as long as KCR rubbed shoulders with the descendants of Razakars, he would not be able to make it to the national politics.
“KCR has no guts to celebrate the Telangana Liberation day, as he is afraid of antagonizing MIM. KCR could not even expand his cabinet for three months even after winning the early elections with comfortable majority,” Shah criticized.
