Rao, popularly known as KTR, said the BJP wants to continue “day-dreaming” that other parties are scared of Mr Modi’s popularity.
Hyderabad: Looking to regain power in Telangana, the ruling TRS leader K.T. Rama Rao Tuesday said PM Narendra Modi’s popularity is “on the decline” and the BJP leaders are “living in a fool’s paradise” if they feel other parties are scared of the ‘Modi factor’.
He also took on Congress chief Rahul Gandhi, saying it was ironical for him to talk about dynasty and accusing that all benefits from creation of Telangana as a separate state were cornered by “one family” (of the CM).
“But for his surname, I don’t know what else makes him the leader of the Congress party”, said Rama Rao, son of caretaker CM.
In poll-bound Telangana, the BJP leaders have argued that if Telangana elections were to be held as scheduled along with that for Lok Sabha next year, it would have given a huge advantage to the BJP and the TRS wanted to avoid such a scenario.
Mr Rao, popularly known as KTR, said the BJP wants to continue “day-dreaming” that other parties are scared of Mr Modi’s popularity.
“Modi’s popularity is on the decline. The BJP has to introspect what went wrong. They are living in a fool’s paradise,” KTR said.
