“Back in 2014, you had questioned the UPA Govt about their indifferent attitude towards Palamuru irrigation projects and asked if they were sleeping for 10 years! Today, after seeing 10 years of BJP’s apathy towards Mahbubnagar, I want to show the mirror to you What assistance did you give to Palamuru irrigation projects in last ten years? A Big ZERO. That’s exactly the the Number of seats your party will be given by people of Telangana,” KTR posted on ‘X’ formerly Twitter.

The minister posted a video clip from Modi’s speech at an election rally in Telangana in 2014.

Last week, the BRS leader had posed several questions to Modi ahead of his visit.

KTR highlighted that the Modi government did not honour the promises made in the AP Reorganisation Act 2014. “Whenever they came to Telangana, they came with empty hands and they should be prepared to go back with empty votes,” he said.  

KTR had also stated that Modi had no right to step foot in Mahabubnagar for the injustices he did to the people of that region.

He recalled how CM KCR, within one month of forming the Government in 2014 reached out to the Prime Minister in New Delhi requesting national status for either Kaleshwaram Project or Palamuru Lift Irrigation Scheme (PLIS). “They gave national status to Upper Bhadra in Karnataka and Polavaram in Andhra Pradesh but ignored the Palamuru Project,” said KTR.

He added that the Modi government was never interested in resolving the Krishna water dispute which was a huge injustice done to Telangana.
