FM Harish Rao Lashes Out At BJP
Hyderabad, Feb.22 (Maxim News): Finance Minister T Harish Rao today lashed out at the BJP for its failure to keep the promises to Telangana state as part of bifurcation. He stormed the BJP as to why the people will vote for it in the graduate MLC polls or others.
He was addressing a preparatory meeting for graduate MLC polls for Warangal-Khammam and Nalgonda segment with candidate Palla Rajeshwar Reddy and others at Siddipet district here.
Speaking on the occasion the Finance Minister accused the BJP Government of Modi in the Centre utterly failed to keep the promises of Steel factory, tribal varsity and funds to our state. Why will the people vote for the BJP if it denied funds and support for the Telangana government, the minister thundered. Despite repeated appeals the Modi regime is yet to clear Rs 900 cr BRGF funds to our state he fumed. He slammed the BJP Government and local party leaders in Telangana for dual standards on development.
The minister hit out that the women in a village of Karnataka bordering Narayankhed are fighting for drinking water while the farmers are not getting power supply for agriculture production. The Modi government miserably failed to address Telangana issues like Bayyarama steel factory, wagon factory in Warangal, tribal varsity and to release BRFG funds and other arrears, the minister pointed out.
If the Centre is denial mood then why do the people in Telangana vote for the BJP, he asked. Claiming that Telangana achieved 14.2 per cent growth which is more than the Centre at national level, he said that better policies by the KCR regime are giving positive results.
Kalyana Lakshmi, pensions, KCR kits,Mission Bhagiratha, kakatiya, rythu vedika, and other welfare are only being implemented in Telangana state, he claimed. The credit for these schemes will surely go for the KCR Government in Telangana he added. (Maxim News)
