KCR acting like king instead of CM: Rahul Gandhi; rules out Congress-TRS alliance in Telangana

Ruling out any alliance with the TRS in Telangana Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Friday launched a scathing attack on its president K Chandrashekar Rao, saying he was acting like a “king” instead of a chief minister.

Addressing the ‘Rythu Sangharshana Sabha’ — a farmers’ rally organised to highlight their plight — Gandhi said as soon as the Congress forms its government in Telangana, farm loans up to Rs 2 lakh will be waived and farmers will get right MSP (minimum support price) of crops.

In an apparent swipe at Rao, popularly known as KCR, he said that while the dream of Telangana’s progress remained unfulfilled, only one family had “benefitted immensely” after the state was carved out of Andhra Pradesh.

He asserted that going forward, the Congress would have no truck with the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) and that the assembly polls next year will be a direct fight between the Congress and the KCR-led party.
