Telangana State’s Chief Minister, A Prominent Opposition Politician, Says Hate Politics Will Take India Back 100 Years
Telangana state’s Chief Minister and prominent Opposition politician, K. Chandrasekhar Rao, has said that India was in a dangerous situation with the politics of hate besieging it.
There was no other discussion or debate in the country other than the religious madness and that people’s needs had taken a backseat, he said in a speech at Telangana formation day celebrations on Thursday.
This politics of “hatred will take the country back by 100 years,” and it will take “another 100 years for the country to recover from this terrible situation,” he added. This attempt “to gain political advantage out of communal conflicts” was a “dangerous agenda.”
While countries that attained freedom along with India were becoming stronger, “we are still fighting over caste and religious differences.”
He warned that if destructive elements were allowed to have their say, the unity of the country would be endangered. “If the violence continues there will not be any new international investment and even the existing investment may fly out. This may also endanger the survival of millions of expatriate Indians employed in various countries.
“People in this country need jobs, employment, projects, water, and electricity. If the country needs to be on the progressive and development path, it needs new agriculture, industrial and economic policies. For this, we need to find ways for a new socioeconomic and political agenda,” he said.
