Telangana CM Revanth Reddy’s friendship with PM Modi became a topic of discussion

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday inaugurated development projects worth over Rs 56,000 crore in Adilabad, Telangana. However, it was not the projects but the cordiality between the Prime Minister and Chief Minister A Revanth Reddy that surprised everyone.

Apart from belonging to both rival parties, Revanth’s behavior was in sharp contrast to that of his predecessor, Bharat Rashtra Samithi founder K Chandrashekhar Rao. When his government was in power, KCR did not participate in almost all the programs of the Prime Minister. He will not welcome PM Modi at the airport and will send a minister in his place.

BJP often criticized the then Chief Minister for not following protocol and not meeting the PM. However, the criticism had little effect on KCR and he stayed away from all programs in which the Prime Minister attended.

That’s why, when Revanth Reddy warmly welcomed the PM and even called him “elder brother”, it became a talking point. “The Prime Minister is like an elder brother. With the guidance of elder brother, the chief ministers of the country can lead their states on the path of progress,” Revanth said.

The Chief Minister made it clear that the Telangana government is choosing the path of cooperation with the Center instead of confrontation.

“We want to participate in the Prime Minister’s vision of a Rs 5 trillion economy. We want to take Telangana forward just like the Prime Minister did in Gujarat,” Revanth Reddy said.

The friendly attitude of the new Congress government towards the Center was evident from the moment it came to power. The previous BRS regime had disputes not only with the PM but also with Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan.
