What has Modi done to Telangana, asks KTR

Even as Telangana Rashtra Samithi president and chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has been going a little soft towards the Narendra Modi government at the Centre citing “reasons which cannot be explained,” his son K T Rama Rao is going all out against Modi.

With the elections to the state legislative council under graduates’ constituencies round the corner, the TRS working president has been going hammer and tongs at the Centre for meting out injustice to Telangana in various sector.

He said though Telangana has been performing well in all the sectors, the Center has never supported the State, nor any funds are being allotted to Telangana projects, while speaking at the CII Telangana State Annual Meeting 2020-21 in Hyderabad. 

“In the past six years, the Telangana Government has received recognition from across the world for its innovative and progressive policies. Though many global companies in IT, Pharma, Life Sciences, Aerospace and Defence sectors have invested in Telangana, the Center never encouraged the State,” said KTR.  

Telangana has been among the top states in the Ease of Doing Business ranks consecutively for the past six years. The state has topped the GSDP growth in the Country. Though Telangana has always performed well in all aspects, the center never encouraged the state in any which ways, he said.

Whenever any union minister comes to the State, he praises the welfare and development of the state but never give funds. Despite repeated requests, the Centre has not been responding in any manner.

KTR gave a lengthy explanation how injustice was meted out to Telangana by BJP-led NDA government.

“Promises made to Telangana such as setting up a steel plant, a railway coach factory and educational institutions have been completely ignored. The Centre has once again demonstrated its opposition to Telangana when it announced that the establishment of the Kazipet Railway Coach Factory, which was mentioned in the latest partition promises, is not even necessary,” he said.

The Centre is not responding to the requests of Telangana to strengthen the railway network which is vital for industrial development.

The construction of 8 railway lines is already pending while the survey of another three lines is also yet to begin. In addition, there is no response from the Center to the proposals for four new railway lines. 

Issues like setting up of Bayyaram Steel Factory, ITIR project, allocation of funds to Pharma City, testing centre for vaccines and allotment of Defence Industrial Corridor to Telangana etc, were completely ignored, he alleged.
