Attacking his opponents over corruption, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday said that everyone knows there was a movie named ‘RRR’, but he has been told that the ‘Telangana to Delhi RR tax’ has collected more than the film.

The PM’s speech was a veiled attack on Telangana chief minister Revanth Reddy. Modi alleged that the money collected in the state through “double R (RR) tax’ is being channelled to Delhi.

“Ek ‘R’ Telangana mein lootata hai aur Dilli mein dusre ‘R’ ko deta hai,” PM Modi said during his election rally in Telangana.

The prime minister had made the same attack at his rally in Telangana’s Zahirabad recently. He said that while the film RRR has brought India’s name to the forefront worldwide, the ‘RR tax’ is bringing shame to the country.

“There is widespread discussion about this RR tax in Telangana. It is alleged that industrialists and contractors in Telangana are required to pay a certain percentage of RR tax. It is claimed that a significant portion of the total collection here goes to Delhi as RR tax. I know you all are troubled by this RR Tax. I don’t need to delve into further detail. The public is now questioning: Who is this ‘R’, and where does this R-tax end up in Delhi?” PM Modi had said.

At Karimnagar rally, Modi further said, “For all these years, both these parties (Congress and BRS) have given Hyderabad to AIMIM on lease. If someone has challenged the AIMIM for the first time, it’s BJP. More than AIMIM, it’s Congress and BRS who are rattled by the challenge from the BJP. Both are helping AIMIM to win in Hyderabad.”

At his earlier rally too, the prime minister had called Congress and BRS two sides of the same corruption coin. “This was evident in the Delhi liquor scam, where BRS members were involved with a party allied with Congress. When action was taken against this scam, members of this corruption racket came together in support of each other,” Modi had added.

Earlier on Wednesday, the prime minister offered prayers at Sri Raja Rajeshwara Swamy Devasthanam in Vemulawada in Karimnagar district. PM Modi reached the southern state on Tuesday night and stayed at the Rajbhavan.
