Hyderabad: Condemning Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao’s remarks that the Centre was responsible for the state’s financial crisis, TS BJP president Dr K. Laxman said he should have maintained fiscal discipline instead of criticising others.
At a meeting in the party office on Monday, Dr Laxman said Mr Rao had changed Telangana state from one with a surplus to one stuck in a financial crunch.
The BJP leader said the lack of objectives had forced Mr Rao into such a situation that the government does not funds for welfare schemes. He said Mr Rao was trying to cover up his faults by “rubbing mud on the Centre.”
Dr Laxman accused Mr Chandrasekhar Rao of “playing cheap tricks” to divert attention from public issues and said the government had not cleared the dues of Rythu Bandhu nor paid for cotton purchase yet.
He pointed out that the Centre had stated in Parliament that `95,000 crore grants had been given to Telangana state.
“If there was an objection, why did the TRS MPs not raise the issue,” Dr Laxman said....
