Besides the rally, Modi will virtually lay the foundation stone and launch several developmental projects worth more than Rs 13,500 crore

With assembly elections in Telangana around the corner, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to sound the poll bugle for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Sunday. PM Modi will address a public rally in Mahabubnagar in the afternoon today, and his speech is likely to be marked by fresh salvos against both the Congress and ruling BRS in poll-bound.

Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao will skip PM Modi’s programme in the state and his minister and Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) leader Talasani Srinivas Yadav will receive the Prime Minister upon his arrival. Yadav will be the one to participate in PM’s official programmes as well.

Union Tourism Minister and Telangana BJP President G Kishan Reddy on Saturday slammed CM KCR, who, according to him, is avoiding the Prime Minister’s programmes with regard to various development activities.

PM’s Telangana Programme

Meanwhile, earlier on Saturday, in a message posted on his social media platform X ( formerly Twitter), PM Modi said the people of Telangana are tired of lackluster governance and equally distrustful of Congress.

“I will be addressing a @BJP4Telangana rally in Mahbubnagar tomorrow, 1st October. The people of Telangana are tired of the lacklustre governance of BRS. They are equally distrustful of Congress. Both BRS and Congress are dynastic parties who have no aim of serving people,” he said in the message.

Besides the rally, Modi will virtually lay the foundation stone and launch several developmental projects worth more than Rs 13,500 crore, party sources said.

The Prime Minister is expected to reach Mahabubnagar district around 2.15 pm and he will dedicate to the nation and lay the foundation stone of multiple developmental projects worth Rs 13,545 crore, in important sectors such as road, rail, petroleum and natural gas and higher education, a statement issued by the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) had said.

Modi is also scheduled to address a public meeting and launch projects in Nizamabad on October 3.

The PM’s visits assume political significance as the state is getting ready to go for assembly polls, which are likely to be held in November-December.

A team of “top officials” from the Election Commission of India is scheduled to visit Telangana on October 3 to assess the poll preparedness and engage with various stakeholders.

Will Support BJP-led Haryana Govt Unconditionally Till End of Term: Independent MLA Nayan Rawat

Published

Last Updated:

Sometimes some issues do crop up but… My support to the government continues as before. It is unconditional and will continue till the end (of the term), Rawat said.

Asserting that his support to the BJP government will continue, Rawat said, “I cannot leave the BJP”

Putting to rest speculation that he might withdraw support to the BJP government in Haryana, Independent MLA Nayan Pal Rawat said Thursday he will back the Nayab Singh Saini dispensation unconditionally till the end of its term.

The Prithla MLA, who was earlier reportedly unhappy with the functioning of some officers, told PTI, “The government has assured to take action in this regard and I am satisfied with its response.” He said over the phone that he had brought to the government’s notice that some officers “were working against its and the public’s interest”.

Asserting that his support to the BJP government will continue, Rawat said, “I cannot leave the BJP.” “It has been my principle in life that if you stand with someone, you don’t run away from there like a coward,” he added.

“Sometimes some issues do crop up but… My support to the government continues as before. It is unconditional and will continue till the end (of the term),” Rawat said.

At present, Rawat and the lone Haryana Lokhit Party MLA Gopal Kanda are supporting the ruling BJP in the state.

Assembly polls are due in Haryana later this year.

If Rawat had decided to withdraw support, it was unlikely to pose any immediate threat to the Saini government.

However, it would have given further ammunition to the Opposition, which has been training guns on the BJP dispensation and calling it a “minority government” ever since three Independents – Sombir Sangwan, Randhir Gollen and Dharampal Gonder – withdrew their support in May.

After the BJP government in the state fell short of a majority on its own in 2019, the JJP and the Independent MLAs extended support to the party.

The JJP’s alliance with the BJP came to an end in March after the saffron outfit replaced Manohar Lal Khattar with Nayab Singh Saini as chief minister.

Another Independent MLA, Ranjit Singh Chautala, who is currently the power minister, had resigned as a legislator ahead of the 2024 Lok Sabha polls and joined the BJP.

Chautala contested the general election from the Hisar parliamentary seat but was unsuccessful.

Independent MLA Rakesh Daultabad passed away in May. Another Independent legislator, Balraj Kundu is also not supporting the BJP.

In the 90-member Haryana Assembly, currently having an effective strength of 87 members, the BJP has 41 MLAs, the Congress 29, the JJP 10 and the INLD and HLP have one MLA each. There are five Independent MLAs in the House.

In May, the opposition JJP moved a petition before the Haryana Assembly speaker, seeking the disqualification of party MLAs Ramniwas Surjakhera and Jogi Ram Sihag under the anti-defection law for allegedly indulging in anti-party activities.

Both these MLAs have openly come out in support of the BJP.

A week ago, Speaker Gian Chand Gupta rejected on “technical grounds” the Congress’ plea seeking disqualification of Kiran Choudhry as a member of the Assembly.

Kiran Choudhry and her daughter Shruti Choudhry resigned from the Congress’ primary membership last month and joined the ruling BJP.

‘Agni Missile Fired by Nagpur’: Cong’s Swipe At PM Over Bhagwat’s ‘Bhagwan’ Remark

The opposition party’s swipe came after Bhagwat said in the course of self-development, a man may want to become a “superman”, then “devta” and “bhagwan” and aspire for “vishwaroop” but nobody is certain what lies ahead

The Congress on Thursday took a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat’s “bhagwan” remarks, calling the comments an “Agni Missile fired by Nagpur” and aimed at Lok Kalyan Marg.

While the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) headquarters is situated in Nagpur, 7 Lok Kalyan Marg is the prime minister’s official residence.

The opposition party’s swipe came after Bhagwat said in the course of self-development, a man may want to become a “superman”, then “devta” and “bhagwan” and aspire for “vishwaroop” but nobody is certain what lies ahead.

Congress general secretary in-charge communications Jairam Ramesh tagged a clip of Bhagwat’s remarks and said, “I am sure the self-anointed non-biological PM has got news of this latest Agni Missile fired by Nagpur from Jharkhand and aimed at Lok Kalyan Marg.” Several people linked with opposition parties also took similar digs on social media.

Addressing a village-level workers meeting, organised by non-profit organisation Vikas Bharti in Jharkhand’s Gumla district, RSS chief Bhagwat asserted that people should work relentlessly for the welfare of mankind, since there is no end to the pursuit of development and human ambition.

“After achieving human qualities, man aspires to become superman with supernatural powers and then attain the status of ‘devta’ and ‘bhagwan’. He then aspires for ‘vishwaroop’ (the supreme power’s all-pervading form). What is beyond that, no one is certain,” Bhagwat said.

There is no end to the development of the inner and outer self and one should work relentlessly for humanity, he said, adding that a worker should never be satisfied with his or her work.

“Work should continue, one should strive to work constantly in areas of environment, education and health…There is no end to it and constant work in different areas is the only solution…We should strive to make this world a beautiful place as is the nature of India,” the RSS chief said.
