HYDERABAD: Firing a fresh salvo at chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, on the last day of campaigning for Warangal Lok Sabha bypoll, Union minister of state for labour and employment Bandaru Dattatreya said KCR has been making baseless allegations at the BJP government at the Centre, just to earn some political mileage in Warangal byelection.
“While the BJP government at the Centre has been taking various steps for development of Telangana, the chief minister has been making false allegations that the Centre is neglecting Telangana.
KCR is indulging in this baseless criticism, as he is scared of the growing popularity of BJP,” Dattatreya said speaking at a press conference here on Thursday, the last day of campaigning for Warangal bypoll.
While the Centre has played a key role in increasing the compensation for farmers in case of crop loss, ensured that more amount of cotton was procured by Cotton Corporation India (CCI) in the last two years, TRS leaders are spreading false news that CCI is not procuring cotton, just to camouflage their inefficiency in dealing with farmers; problems, he further said.
“The Union cabinet has approved to set up National Animal Resource Facility for Bio-Medical Research at Genome Valley in Hyderabad with an outlay of `338 crore. People should vote for the BJP-TDP candidate in Warangal, as continued support by the Centre is needed for the all-round development of Telangana,” Dattatreya stressed.
He further said that only with the support of Union government will a ‘Nava Telangana’ where people from all sections are given equal priority and share in development will be achieved.
Saying that people from all sections especially farmers and youth are severely disillusioned by the TRS government, Dattatreya stated that TRS has completely failed on all accounts in its 16-month rule and will face the wrath of people in the Warangal byelection.
