Shabbir Ali Ridicules CM’s Logic on Spending on Welfare
·TRS Govt did not spend even 50% of allocation on welfare: Shabbir
·Congress empowered all communities, but KCR is giving them a begging bowl: Shabbir
Hyderabad, Oct 9 (Maxim News): Former Minister Mohammed Ali Shabbir has ridiculed the logic used by Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao to claim that TRS Govt spent more on the welfare of SCs, STs, BCs and minorities compared to previous Congress Government.
“CM KCR made a statement in the Assembly claiming that TRS Govt has spent Rs. 74,165 Crore in the last seven years on welfare compared to Rs. 21,663 Crore by Congress regime from 2004-2014.
This is a completely illogical, irrational and ridiculous method of comparing spending done in different periods of time,” Shabbir Ali said in a media statement on Saturday.
Shabbir Ali said that the budget figures could not be taken at face value as they depend on several factors.
“The first budget of Independent India, presented by the then Finance minister RK Shanmukham Chetty, was earmarked at Rs 197.39 crore. This year (2021-22) budget’s size is Rs. 34.83 Lakh Crore.
Similarly, the budget of all States in the country was of a few hundred crores in the 1950s and it went on increasing ever after year due to an increase in revenues and other sources.
Therefore, it is ridiculous for CM KCR to compare the figures of 2004-2014 with 2014-2021,” he said adding that the allocations depend on the actual size of the economy, annual budget, inflation and other factors.
“Such illogical comparisons are done by people only when they are in an inebriated condition or they are participating in a ‘chabutra’ discussion,” he said.
