NOTWITHSTANDING strong anti-incumbency against the ruling party’s lawmakers and very high public expectations from the government post-statehood, Telangana Rashtra Samiti leader Kavalkunthala Kavitha asserts the TRS headed by K Chandrasekhar Rao, popularly called KCR, will be re-elected for the second term. People know that it was because of his “strategy” and “tenacity” that they got a separate state. “The population of Telangana is about 3.5 crore but over 6.5 crore people have benefited from the government’s welfare schemes. “Asked to comment on the opposition parties’ allegation that KCR has not created two lakh job opportunities as promised by him before the last assembly elections, she said they were confusing the people.TRS has never mentioned any number of jobs to be created. The opposition parties keep confusing people about the commitments made by TRS.It was promised by Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Nara Chandra Babu Naidu. Kavitha said. “We always said one lakh government jobs can be created. And we have delivered on it. 87,000 jobs have been notified, of which 32,000 jobs have already been given. “Asked about media report of TRS joining hands with the BJP post-assembly elections, Kavitha said it was being “planted” in the minds of Muslims by the Congress to win their votes. Incidentally, Muslims constitute around 12 per cent of the state’s population of the Telugu speaking southern state. Answering a query Kavitha said The TDP led by Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandra Babu Naidu has no presence in Telangana. Our people are aware that Naidu always is against the interests of Telangana. How can they forget that Naidu had opposed creation of Telangana? She said. In the 2014 assembly elections in Telangana, the TRS secured 34 per cent of the votes polled to win 63 seats in the 119-member assembly. The Congress had secured 25 per cent of the vote share for 21 seats while the TDP managed 14.5 per cent for 15.
