‘Ram Mandir belongs to Hindus, BJP playing religious politics’: Revanth Reddy | EXCLUSIVE

Telangana Chief Minister Revanth Reddy has responded to the controversy surrounding four Shankaracharyas’ decision not to attend the Ram Temple’s ‘pran pratishtha’ on January 22. He said that the Ram Temple belonged to all Hindus and accused the BJP of engaging in “religious politics” ahead of the Lok Sabha elections.

In an exclusive interview with India Today TV’s News Director Rahul Kanwal, Revanth Reddy expressed a desire to visit the Ram Temple in Ayodhya someday.

“The Ram Temple belongs to all Hindus. This has nothing to do with the BJP. How would this benefit them politically? “If they claim they will benefit from the Ram Temple, they are engaging in religious politics,” he stated.

Recently, four Shankaracharyas stated that they will not visit Ayodhya because the temple is completed. Whoever believes in such things is free to go. “This is neither the first nor the last day,” he continued.

Revanth Reddy stated that he used to visit a Ram temple in Telangana’s Bhadrachalam. He went on to say, “I don’t find any difference between Ayodhya and Bhadrachalam Ram Temple.”

Revanth Reddy, who is making his first visit to the gorgeous Swiss town of Davos for the 54th World Economic Forum (WEF) annual conference, has laid out his vision for luring investment to Telangana.

“My primary areas of focus include education, information technology, pharmaceuticals, sports, and other employment opportunities. My focus is also on 30 lakh young technologists. We wish to focus on organic foods. “I want to establish pharma villages in 10-12 clusters across Telangana and build the best universities in and around Hyderabad,” he stated.

Revanth Reddy stated that he does not want Telangana to compete with neighboring states such as Karnataka, Maharashtra, or Andhra Pradesh, but rather with “the world.”

“We are encouraging investors from around the world to the state. We want to compete globally, not with Karnataka, Maharashtra, or Andhra Pradesh. “For me, the world is one village,” he explained.

The Chief Minister emphasized that investors trusted in stable governance for investments and stated that his policies “were different” from those of the previous BRS government led by K Chandrasekhar Rao.

“Whether it is the BRS or the Congress, we must continue to formulate development policies. The IT and pharmaceutical industries did not start under the BRS rule. It began way back in 1993. “Development has been ongoing for the past 30 years and will continue to do so,” he stated.

Speaking about the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra, which was launched by Congress leader Rahul Gandhi from Manipur, Revanth Reddy said people were looking forward to the yatra and that the effort would create a wave in the run-up to this year’s Lok Sabha elections.

To bring justice to this country, vote for Congress or the INDIA bloc. “The INDIA bloc can do better for our country,” he stated.

Revanth Reddy expressed optimism in “winning 14 to 17 Lok Sabha seats” in Telangana, noting that the Congress’ election battle will be with the BRS rather than the BJP. The state has 17 legislative seats.

“I told you earlier that during the assembly elections, the BJP said it would form the government in Telangana. I predicted they’d finish in third place with single digits. The fight is between the BRS and Congress. “My main opponent in the Lok Sabha is the BRS,” he stated.

When asked if Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP would win the 2024 Lok Sabha elections easily, Revanth Reddy mentioned Atal Bihari Vajpayee and KCR as precedents.

“In 2004, the BJP’s campaign theme was ‘India Shining’. Nobody predicted that Atal Bihari Vajpayee would lose. Then Congress came in and ruled for ten years under the UPA-1 and UPA-2 regimes. In Telangana, KCR believed he could not lose, but we defeated him. So everyone needs to work hard.”
