Prime Minister Narendra Modi, during an election rally in Telangana’s Zaheerabad Lok Sabha constituency, declared that he would not allow reservations for Dalits, Adivasis, and OBCs to be allocated to Muslims based on religion. He emphasized, “As long as Modi is alive, I will not let reservations of Dalits, Adivasis, OBCs be given to Muslims based on religion.”

PM Modi pointed out that when the Congress won a significant number of MPs and MLAs in undivided Andhra Pradesh in 2004 and 2009, it extended reservation benefits to Muslims under the Backward Classes (BC) category. He criticized the Congress for not approving OBC status for 26 castes in Telangana while categorizing Muslims as OBC “overnight.”

In a veiled criticism of Telangana Chief Minister Revanth Reddy, Modi alleged that money collected in the state through the “double R (RR) tax” is being diverted to Delhi. He made these remarks while referring to the blockbuster Telugu film titled ‘RRR’, which received global acclaim.

Accusing the Congress of planning to impose a 55 per cent inheritance tax if voted to power, Modi stated that while the rest of the world was progressing economically, India suffered from political paralysis under the previous UPA government. “If Congress comes to power, they will bring an inheritance tax. Congress is planning to collect more than half, 55 per cent, as tax on inheritance,” he claimed.

Taking a jab at the Congress, Modi said that whenever the party is in power, it is associated with five political symbols: false promises, vote bank politics, support for mafia and criminals, dynastic politics, and corruption.

Modi further alleged that after BRS, the Congress is now looting Telangana. Revanth Reddy has repeatedly claimed in his Lok Sabha campaign speeches that the BJP would change the Constitution and abolish reservations.
