Hyderabad: Alleging corruption and dynastic rule of the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) government in the state, the BJP on Sunday claimed that it would come to power after next year’s assembly polls.

A statement was made on the situation in Telangana on the last day of the BJP’s national executive meeting here.

Addressing the media, Union Minister Piyush Goyal said that the ruling TRS government has not lived up to the expectations of the people of Telangana in the last eight years.

“TRS government is now associated with corruption and dynastic rule. A family runs the government. The chief minister and his son, a senior minister, run the entire government,” Goyal said.

Goyal alleged that the state government has failed to implement the central schemes and has also failed to fulfill the original promise of water, money and jobs.

Goyal also said that the BJP will defeat the dynastic politics of TRS in the assembly elections to be held next year.

“No one expected us to win the Dubbaka assembly bypoll, but we fought and won. The results reflect people’s faith in the leadership of BJP and Narendra Modi. BJP will form a good and honest government which will live up to the expectations of the people of Telangana.

Union Minister G. Kishan Reddy alleged that the Chief Minister and TRS are scared of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s popularity.

Reddy claimed that the popularity of the BJP is increasing in Telangana and cited the party’s performance in the Hyderabad municipal elections and the recent by-polls in Huzurabad and Dubbaka constituencies as examples.

Taking a dig at the Chief Minister’s remarks that the BJP should learn from Telangana’s development, Reddy said, “What do we learn? How’s your family governance going? Should we learn from him about corruption and dictatorship?”
