Modi Government has done a lot for State: Kishan
Hyderabad: The Narendra Modi government has heralded changes in agriculture, industrial, foreign policy and infrastructure sectors in the last nine years. It has spent Rs 1.2 lakh crore on laying highways in Telangana,” said BJP state president G. Kishan Reddy.
Addressing farmers at the Rythu Sadassu in Exhibition grounds here on Saturday, he said, “Shortage of fertilisers is a thing of the past now. The Ramagundam Fertiliser factory was reopened by Modi while the only concern of KCR Rao is to make his son KTR the Chief Minister.”
It was the BRS government, which delayed the formation of the Krishna water disputes tribunal, he said, while adding that linking rivers was the only solution to end the water woes of Palamuru, Nalgonda, Khammam, Medak and Rangareddy districts.
BJP national general secretary Bandi Sanjay Kumar said, “The decision taken by the Modi government to constitute a new tribunal will render justice to the state. KCR is trying to swindle Rs 500 crore in the name of paddy procurement.”
Kailash Choudhary, Union minister of state for agriculture, said, “The Modi government increased the budget of farmers from Rs 22,000 crore to 'one lakh six thousand crores. The turmeric board, tribal university and a tribunal for Krishna water were given to the state by the Centre.”
In a separate press conference, reacting to Ponnala Lakshmaiah’s possible move to BRS, Kishan Reddy said, “Ponnala is free to join the BRS but both parties are the same.”
