He said Telangana leads in states with high per capita income. Telangana is one of the four highest revenue earning states for the Central government. Many items on the state list have been added to the Central list. The BJP and Congress governments have reduced the powers of the states. The BJP ruled states have opposed the inclusion of petrol and diesel in the GST. The Center is also trying to curb revenue on petrol and diesel.

Hyderabad has been an international city for many decades. The Center has been asked to provide Rs. 10,000 crore annually for urban development. Asked how many times there was no response from the center. Is not Congress the cause of the floods in Hyderabad? why has Congress, which has ruled for decades, not improved the drainage system? rs. 15,000 crore is required to repair the drainage system in Hyderabad, It is wrong to dream of growing Hyderabad like Istanbul, he questioned. Let’s dream and try to fulfill them, he said that he did not say that Karimnagar would be made like Dallas. The river and canals next to Karimnagar are beautiful. I only said that Karimnagar would also look like Dallas if it was reformed, he said.
