Telangana, Nov 28: Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday said that after defeating the KCR government in Telangana, will defeat BJP in 2019.

“KCR govt promised 1 lakh jobs. But how many jobs did he really create? He has only employed his family and stole the future of 4 crore people”.
“Every person in Telangana has Rs 60,000 debt on them, but KCR’s son’s income increased by 400%”.
Continuing his attack, Gandhi said that “five years ago, people of Telangana had hoped for a new Telangana. You had dreamt of Neellu, Nidhulu, Niyamakaalu. People believed that CM KCR will fulfil their dreams and this trust was broken by KCR Government.
