According to a post on X (formerly Twitter) by a BRS leader, the newly elected Congress government in Karnataka has initiated the practice of levying a political election tax of ₹500 per square foot on Bengaluru builders, with the proceeds aimed at funding the Telangana Congress.

KTR went on to comment on the Congress party’s history, mentioning its legacy of scams and humorously rebranding it as “Scamgress.” He emphasized that despite the financial resources they might inject, the people of Telangana would not be easily deceived and urged them to reject “SCAMGRESS” in Telangana.

In a previous statement on September 26, KT Rama Rao criticized Prime Minister Modi for his remarks regarding the formation of Telangana and called for an apology to the state’s residents. He insisted that the Prime Minister should address the people and express his apology.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi was scheduled to address a public meeting organized by the BJP in Mahabubnagar on October 1, ahead of the upcoming Assembly elections in Telangana, which are scheduled for this year.

The Telangana Assembly elections are expected to witness a three-way competition between the BJP, the ruling BRS, and the Congress. These elections hold significance as they serve as a litmus test for the BJP-led NDA ahead of the crucial 2024 Lok Sabha elections. Additionally, other states like Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, and Mizoram are also set to hold elections later in the year.
