KCR is at it again. Briefing the press ahead of the inauguration of prestigious Kaleshwaram Irrigation project, KCR's fresh remarks on Modi have become hot topic in political circles. KCR questioned that why Modi should be invited for all the events. It all happened when media asked KCR about not inviting PM Modi for Kaleshwaram Irrigation project. To which, KCR has reacted in his own way. "Should Modi be invited for all the events?" KCR recalled that Modi was invited as the guest for the inauguration of Mission Bhageeratha at Gajwel. KCR pointed out that not an extra penny was granted from the Centre to the state.
"Should Modi be invited for all events? We're inaugurating Kaleshwaram project with a great satisfaction. Aren't you happy," KCR shot back at media. KCR also noted that he is not part of NDA. He recalled how he had fought for Federal Front.
However, KCR said the relation with the Centre will be maintained as per the Constitution. He said nothing more, nothing less.
KCR also recalled how critical he was about Modi when he had merged 7 mandals of khammam into AP to facilitate Polavaram Irrigation project. Even Sileru Thermal Power Plant was granted to AP. KCR reminsced that he had called Modi as "Fascist". He said the state government had sought 24,000 Crore national aid for Mission Bhageeratha and Mission Kakateeya. But he said not a single rupee was released from the Centre to the state, much to everyone's dismay.
On the other hand, it is widely speculated that KCR is "afraid" of Modi and BJP's growing popularity in Telangana. BJP leaders allege that KCR is worried over strengthening of BJP in Telangana after the Lotus party won 4 MP seats in the recent Lok Sabha polls.
Meanwhile, KCR has invited his Andhra counterpart YS Jagan Mohan Reddy. KCR personally met Jagan and invited him for the inauguration of Kaleshwaram project. KCR reiterated that he would maintain good relation with AP and solve all the pending issues with AP.
