If questioned, they threaten to topple state government; KCR slams Centretext_fields
Hyderabad: While speaking at a public meeting in Mahbubnagar on Sunday, Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao slammed the BJP-led Union Government for their interference in state politics.
He accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of saying that the State government would be thrown out, and claimed that "some thieves have come to split the TRS MLAs" and the perpetrators were put in jails referring to the MLA poaching case.
"The Prime Minister says KCR, I will throw your government out. What is that we should understand out of this? Are we not an elected government like yours? Have we won without people's mandate? For what reason would you throw my government out. Can a Prime Minister go to West Bengal and say 40 of your MLAs are in touch with us. Can he say that?" KCR questioned.
Alleging that the Prime Minister and the Union government are blocking the progress of Telangana, KCR said if anyone questions the attitude, then they say the state government would be thrown out.
"Is it fair for the Prime Minister and the Union government to block the progress of a state? If anyone questions them, they say we will throw your state government out. Is this the way," he asked.
Further he said that had there been cooperation from the Union government the Gross State Domestic Product (GSDP) would have been at Rs 14.50 lakh crore, instead of Rs 11.50 lakh crore.
Indirectly referring to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), he said that the nation's lifeline is being spoiled today for petty political gains and hatred is being spread among the people besides onslaught against opposition leaders.
KCR said the people would decide who should play what role whether to rule or to sit in opposition, and the ruling government should be allowed to work for five years without meddling in it.
Narrating the achievements of his government, he said that Gujarat and Delhi face power and water distribution problems, while both are available to the people of Telangana.
