BJP President Amit Shah on Tuesday lashed out at efforts being made by Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao to form a non-Congress and non-BJP Federal Front.

Addressing an election meeting on the last day of the Lok Sabha election campaign in Telangana, Shah said, "There are two camps. One camp is of patriots of BJP led by Narendra Modi and NDA allies and the other camp is led by Rahul Gandhi and the gathbandhan."

Referring to KCR’s front, which is expected to be a consortium of regional parties, the BJP leader said, “You tell me can KCR in any way become the Prime Minister?"

Shah said the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS), like the Congress, was a party of family rule and claimed that only the BJP can work for the country's development and make it strong.

Amit Shah also claimed that people had decided to make Narendra Modi the Prime Minister again. He said that during the last five years, the Modi government enhanced the country's stature and its biggest achievement was making the country safe and secure.

He claimed that the BJP-led NDA government provided Rs 2.45 lakh crore to Telangana in five years against Rs 16,500 crore given during 10 years of UPA rule.

He said the entire country was happy when India launched air strikes on Pakistan to destroy the terror camp but there was gloom in Pakistan and in the camp of "Rahul Gandhi and company".

However, hitting back, TRS Working President K T Rama Rao took to Twitter and said, “Dear Amit Shah, stop spreading blatant lies and misleading people. Telangana in the last 5 years has contributed over Rs 4,00,000 crore to the government of India through Income tax, Excise duty and GST. What Telangana got in 5 years is a paltry Rs 1,10,963 crore. Let people be the judge and jury now.”

He also advised Shah to “get the script checked before you speak next time.”
