Modi-led Centre shows "partisan attitude" towards Telangana: KCRtext_fields
Hyderabad: Alleging that the Union government is showing a "partisan attitude" towards Telangana, Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao (KCR) urged his Telugu Rashtra Samiti (TRS) MPs to voice their protests in both Houses of Parliament against the same, Asian News International reported.
He told the same in a meeting of TRS under KCR's chairmanship at Pragati Bhavan on Saturday as the monsoon session of the Parliament is about to begin on July 18.
KCR said that the MPs must stop the BJP's absurd attitude, stamping down their rights, including the promises of state division, in coordination with the opposition MPs. Because of the anti-people policies rolled out by the Centre, the country's development has been stalled in every sector, he said.
He said that the Modi government has never encouraged Telangana but takes part in conspiracies to halt development, though the state is developing with economic discipline.
Further, KCR told the MPs that his state has a good track record of repayment without a single day or a single paisa of default in the eight years after its formation. It is deplorable to see PM Modi turning a blind eye towards Telengana, which progresses unopposed. Modi wants to suppress the state economically in the name of rules, he said.
He asked the BJP leadership to clarify how the decisions taken by the Centre against Telangana are reaching the BJP social media groups. He asserted that the deliberate leaking of information related to the financial affairs of the country and the states is a criminal act. Also, spreading bad propaganda against the Telangana government. The BJP should be exposed before both the Parliament Houses for such bankrupt and stupid affairs, ANI reports.
According to KCR, whatever development happens in the country must thank only the country's GDP. Only eight states contribute largely to the country's GDP, and Telangana is one.
He asked how much Telangana contributed to the Centre in eight years and how much the state received from the Centre. If the figures are analysed, a commoner could understand the injustice the Centre does to his state, he claimed.
