Hyderabad: Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao today again lashed out at the BJP Government at the Centre on fuel charges and politicizing the issues of the development. He addressed a press conference with Ministers T Harish Rao, Niranjan Reddy, and others at Pragathi Bhavan today also and accused the BJP leadership of false politics to come to power like in Karnataka and Madhya Pradesh.
The Centre should cut cess and taxes to relieve the people at cheaper prices, he demanded. The Centre eying the polls in some states and reduced prices to a little extent, he said. The Centre should tell whether it will purchase paddy from the state which produced 3 crore metric tons in the state.
We are ruling the state with people’s mandate and not with support of any other parties, he claimed. KCR hit out at Sanjay for his remarks that he was talking rubbish and failed to develop the state. The CM warned that the government will take serious action against such leaders for derogatory remarks.
We are now implementing a wide variety of welfare schemes which have reached each and every house in Telangana, he said.
During the Corona pandemic our government arranged trains and other transport facilities for coolies and migrant workers of various states to reach their homes, he said. The Centre denied doing so and we asked the workers to get back to work in the state.
The TRS leadership will not give up the fight for protecting our farmers’ interests until the Centre buys or clarifies on paddy purchase, he declared.
The CM stated that he will press in six helicopters to show the central ministers and officials to see whether paddy is produced in about 63 lakh acres of the state. He slammed the BJP leadership for politics and Sanjay for resorting to baseless charges. How we will show wrong details with regard to showing the paddy sown in the state and the Centre blatantly refusing to buy the same from our state, he asked.
I am ready to resign from CM post if the BJP leaders prove that Telangana got monetary help from the sheep program. We took loans and are paying interest to NCDC for that program, he clarified. The BJP leadership is not taking action against those who appease them and forcing the officials for IT raids if anyone talks against them, he fumed.
The TRS got the people’s support for the second time. I became chief minister for a second time. There was a reason why an SC leader was not made Chief Minister. He said that the BJP leaders failed to do anything for the state.
Why are BJP ruled states not implementing the schemes like KCR Kits, Rythu Bandhu, Bhima, pensions the chief minister asked? KCR also stated that the TRS Government gave 1.35 lakh jobs to people and will give another 70,000 to 80,000 posts in future.
The Centre created problems and denied us permissions for zonal act after six months in the state, he charged. Due to the false, bad economic policies and failed policies by the Centre, several states are facing power and water problems. Despite the nation having 65 percent water surrounding our national borders, several states face these problems, he said.
