Ruling Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) leaders on July 8, Saturday hit back at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for making “baseless charges” against Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao led Telangana government. Addressing a public meeting at Warnagal earlier on Saturday afternoon, PM Modi said that the BRS regime has been steeped in corruption and family rule, besides lack of development in the state.
Telangan State Planning Board vice-chairman B Vinod Kumar led the retaliation saying that Modi appears to have conceded electoral defeat by not announcing any funds to Telangana, unlike what he did in other poll bound states. “Generally, Modi gives funds and promises to states where elections are held, but he stopped from doing so at Warangal because, he sensed poor chances of BJP in Telangana,” said Vinod.
“Modi has no right to talk about dynastic politics or family rule, because, there are around 200 leaders within BJP who belong to different political families. We all know, it is Governor, who is appointed by BJP who is stopping recruitment in universities by stalling a bill for common recruitment board. So, PM has no right to talk about 12 state universities being neglected without jobs recruitment,” said Vinod.
“Modi is copying our schemes”: Harish Rao
Telangana Finance and Health Minister T Harish Rao to lashed out at PM Modi for making wild allegations against KCR government. “We, Telangana government, are getting most of the awards from the Centre for better performance in the last several years, but still, PM is criticizing us. They (BJP gives us awards in Delhi and attack us in “gully” (locally in Telangana),” said Harish talking to media persons at Siddipet.
Harish reminded PM Modi that most of the developmental and welfare schemes launched in Telangana were copied by the Centre, like PM Kisan, which got inspiration form Rythu Bandhu. Harish also attacked the PM for not releasing the funds that are due to Telangana in the last nine years. In spite of Centre’s non-cooperation, we are able to achieve tremendous success under the leadership of our CM KCR,” said Harish Rao.
