Centre releases Rs 450 cr pending funds for Telangana

Vastavam web: Modi’s government’s bias in favour of KCR is further evident from the manner in which the Centre released Rs. 450 crore to Telangana under assistance to backward districts. This is the second consecutive year that PM Modi showed an empty hand to AP which has 7 backward districts and which is waiting for Rs. 750 crore under the Central assistance programme till now.

TDP leaders have termed this as a continuation of ‘ruin AP’ policy adopted by BJP ever since TDP walked out of NDA alliance in March this year and even move a no confidence motion against Modi later. Centre’s total anti-AP policy is evident from how Rs. 350 crore was deposited in AP account for backward districts on February 9. All this amount was taken back by Centre on February 15 saying there was no approval for this from Prime Minister Modi’s Office.

TDP leaders also say that their leader Chandrababu Naidu has his own plans on how to develop state by attracting big industries and NRI investments despite continued injustice and hostility from the Centre.
