Addressing the first public meeting of Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) in Khammam, BRS supremo KCR said free power would be provided to farmers across the country if a ‘BRS proposed government’ captured power at the Centre in 2024, following polls to the Lok Sabha. He also said that the Rythu Bandhu scheme will be implemented in the whole country if BRS is given a chance. KCR also demanded the ruling BJP implement the Dalit Bandhu scheme across the country.

Schemes like Telangana’s Rythu Bandhu (for the welfare of farmers) should be implemented throughout the country and it is his party’s slogan and demand, KCR asserted. He slammed the BJP and Congress, alleging that both the parties are responsible for interstate water issues.
