Vastavam web: TRS working president K T Rama Rao today accused the BJP government at the Centre of adopting a biased attitude towards Telangana in providing funds and extending various benefits and said the BJP would pay a price for it in the coming Lok Sabha elections. He said the TRS strongly condemns this attitude of the Centre which is because the BJP lacks presence in Telangana. The Centre has readily helped Maharashtra, where BJP is in power, with Rs. 3,831 crore for irrigation this financial year in irrigation, Mr Rao said.
“I humbly warn BJP friends on behalf of Telangana people. If you continue the same biased attitude, your deposits would be lost in all the 17 parliament seats,” Mr Rao said. The NDA government has not responded to the request to grant national status to an irrigation project in the state, paying GST dues, setting up a steel factory in the state according to the AP Reorganisation Act and providing other Central funds, he claimed. Also, the attitude of the BJP is undemocratic and that it would pay a price for it unless its leaders changed their ways, the TRS leader said. “it is unfortunate that they don”t have the thought to support Telangana. In democracy, is he only the Prime Minister for the BJP, not for country. Prime Minister only for BJP-ruled states,” he said.
