HYDERABAD: Actor NTR Jr. on Monday accused the Congress of trying to rouse people’s passions on knowing that it had fared badly in the first phase of polling. He urged people to ponder over the consequences if leaders, who create rift among people, were elected.
In a televised address to people, who vote in the second and final phase on April 23, he asked them to take note of those who were promising social change on one hand and “selling election tickets” on the other.
Plea to voters
He appealed to them think carefully as their votes would decide the future.
Making an impassioned plea to bring the Grand Alliance to power for a “golden future”, he said the cash transfer scheme would usher in lot of changes in their lives.
Referring to Chief Minister Y.S .Rajasekhara Reddy’s controversial remarks that people from other regions would have to live as aliens in Telangana, he wondered why the Congress had tied up with the TRS in the last election. He said the State’s future would be in jeopardy if the Congress was not “buried”.
He accused Congressmen of treating people as mere vote banks and alleged that they would stoop to any level to garner votes.
