Hyderabad: Former Chief Minister of Odisha Giridhar Gamang and several other leaders from Odisha joined Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) in the presence of party president K Chandrasekhar Rao, who formally welcomed them by offering a pink scarf here Friday. Giridhar Gamang and his son Sishir had Wednesday announced their resignation from the primary membership of the BJP.
Speaking on the occasion, Rao said BRS party was floated in order to change the future of India and its philosophy and in that endeavour several leaders from Odisha came and joined. According to KCR, despite change in governments and leaders, the fate of the people remained the same as political parties always focussed on winning elections wherein ‘people are losing’. “How many governments and leaders changed, but the fate of farmers and poor people did not change. Why is it so? This is what we should ponder upon. It is because when there are elections parties are winning but people are losing. Serious change is required in the Indian political landscape where not leaders but people win,” KCR, said.
The Telangana CM said though the country is celebrating 75 years of independence, the growth story is different from other countries. Despite having resources in abundance, more than China and USA, India youth prefer to go to other countries to pursue their dreams and people need to reflect on it.
Recalling the farmers’ stir against the Centre’s controversial farm laws in the national capital, Rao said the rulers mocked at the poor people and peasants of the country. “That’s why I called for Ab Ki Bar Kisan Ki Sarkar. Several leaders have become MLAs and MPs, but this time (in 2024 general elections) farmers only should become MLAs and MPs,” opined the Telengana Chief Minister. The BRS will bring about change in Indian politics and ensure that people win in the elections, asserted KCR.
