“KCR ji’s government, which has been ruling Telangana for 10 years, is way past its expiry date. When you buy medicines from medical shops, you look for the date of expiry. The BRS government is way past its expiry,” said the AICC member while campaigning in the state.
She addressed public meetings at Palakurthy, Husnabad and Kothagudem on Friday. At Palakurthy, the turf of seven-time MLA Errabelli Dayakar Rao of BRS, Priyanka Gandhi urged voters to choose Congress candidate Yashaswini Reddy, pointing out that Telangana was one of the states which was high in unemployment. Referring to a job aspirant, Pravalika, who died by suicide, she chastised the government for failing to show compassion and stand by her family and instead resorted to lies and character assassination.

Students will get assistance worth Rs 5 lakh and international schools will be set up in each district. “Congress has a proper vision on how to firm up the future of the youths,” she claimed.
Addressing the women at the rally, the Congress leader said inflation was sky high and that was affecting the women most since they have to run the household.
