Accusing the BJP-led Union Government of being biased towards states where it is in power, TRS working President K Taraka Ramarao on Saturday hit out at the Centre with regard to the release of funds. Alleging that the Centre is not releasing funds to Telangana for irrigation projects as the BJP is weak in the state, KTR said, â€śWe condemn the Union governmentâ€™s bias, which is being done with cheap and ulterior political interests."
KTR alleged that in Union government has come forward to provide 25% funds for irrigation projects in BJP-ruled Maharashtra while keeping aside Telangana governmentâ€™s share. He said, "In this one year alone, Rs 3831 crores were given to Maharashtra government, while showing step-motherly love where others are in power. In this way BJP has done injustice to Telangana".
He also warned the BJP that it would face the same fate in the Lok Sabha Elections as it did in the Assembly Elections if the Centre continued to ignore Telangana, without having a conscience to treat all states equally. KTR warned that the people of Telangana would refuse to vote for the BJP if they continued to ignore the state in such an â€śundemocraticâ€ť manner. He said, "Your party will lose even the single MP seat (Secunderabad) along with losing deposits in all 17 seats . The BJP had won one seat in the 2014 Lok Sabha Election and had emerged victorious in 5 seats in the Assembly Elections that were held simultaneously that year. However, in the December 2018 Assembly Elections, the TRS swept the polls, with BJP managing to retain only one seat.
KTR also said that his party would expose the injustices that are being done by BJP-led Union government across platforms including in parliament.
