Defending Telangana government’s controversial decision to hold an intensive household survey on August 19, Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao on Sunday said he will be like Hitler to stop “injustice”.

“One says KCR is Hitler, another says KCR is dictator; KCR is definitely Hitler for thieves. I want to be Hitler for the corrupt. I don’t feel shy. KCR is Hitler to stop injustice. I can even be Hitler’s grandfather,” Rao said at a press conference.

Talking about the proposed survey, the chief minister said the exercise is aimed at ensuring that the benefits of government programmes reaches the targeted sections.

Rao dismissed allegations that the survey has been planned with a view to identifying Seemandhra natives.

“It is absolutely wrong. The Telangana Rashtra Samithi government wants to be target specific. It (the survey) is aimed at helping the people and the poor,” he said.

Taking exception to certain comments being made by opposition TDP and BJP regarding the survey, Rao said the parties were raising a false alarm.

      KCR is on the road to a campaign that will tear apart the very fabric of India. He must be closely watched by the Central authorities to make sure he does not overstep certain red lines. Comparing himself to Hitler, even obliquely, shows a mindset that is both narrow minded and astoundingly ignorantdians live in a democracy, albeit an imperfect one. We certainly do not live in a place like Rwanda or the Central African Republic, where your ethnicity can mean the difference between life and death.It is unfortunate but perfectly understandable that 6 decades of rampant political and administrative corruption in the country has eventually produced such "leaders." God save India.
