Dharmapuri Arvind calls K Chandrasekhar Rao a lightweight CM

Hyderabad: Confident that the lotus will make a mark in the upcoming municipal elections in the state, BJP MP Bandi Sanjay dared Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao to go for direct elections as ‘Brand Modi’ would defeat him.

“KCR promised an easy win against the BJP. The lightweight Chief Minister has asked his cadres not to bother about us, when the truth is the TRS doesn’t stand a chance against us,” Nizamabad MP D. Arvind said.

Taking another jab at Mr Rao, Mr Arvind asked why he was trying to rush the municipal polls if he isn’t intimidated by the BJP or Mr Modi.

“Mr Rao is about to give the municipal counselors’ reservations to chairmen, corporators to mayors, and I believe he wants to wrap up the elections before August 10 with the 14-day notification period. If he’s as brave as he poses to be, then after finalising his candidates’ reservations he should allow 15 days to the people who might want to challenge him in court,” he said.

“Some things that Mr Rao is doing is illegal, but the State Election Commission isn’t challenging or stopping him. Even the voters’ list is in a detestable state. I urge KCR to allow some more time so the election commission can rectify the voters’ list,” MP Arvind concluded.

“If Mr Rao is so confident, then he should participate in direct elections. He has merged a couple of villages in my segments into one or two wards. Due to this, his strength has increased by 3,000 votes, and he will revise reservations accordingly,” Mr Arvind added.
