Bhadrachalam: The BJP state executive on Saturday discussed the issue of party legislators not defending the government at the Centre when Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao criticised it.
BJP leader Nagam Janardhan Reddy said, “At one stage, the CM warned the Centre on RBI guidelines on jewellery purchase by women. He used words like ‘khabadar’, and said he would take on the Centre if it set out to examine the jewellery held by women in the state. No party MLA responded,” he said.
He said the party MLAs were not taking a tough stand against TRS government. This became a talking point at the executive meet. Speaking at the meet, Union minister of state for home Hansraj Gangaram Ahir tried to enthuse party leaders by saying: “Telangana state is not the colony of KCR, BJP has a strong base and the party is in second position in the state.” He pointed out the BJP had won in northeast where the party was weak.
The minister said the TRS government was not using the funds allocated by the Centre; it had not used the `972 crore subsidy for farmers. BJP state president K. Laxman said the cadre should be active on public issues and expose the TRS. The BJP is the only the party to take the country in a better direction, he said.
The policies being introduced by Central government are very useful to the poor and the rural areas will be witnessed a tremendous development in the future.
Congress, which caused for various scams at Centre when it was in power, is making meaningless statements. “No value to Congress among the people and the party leaders are extending support to the black money hoarders”, he said....
