HYDERABAD: State ministers, Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) MLAs and MLCs on Monday lashed out at Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) chief A. Revanth Reddy for trying to hold ‘Rachabanda’ in Erravelli and BJP state unit president Bandi Sanjay for holding ‘Nirudhyoga Deeksha’.

Addressing separate press conferences at Telangana Bhavan here, they said none of the state governments in BJP or Congress-ruled states could match the TRS government's achievements in agriculture sector and in providing government jobs to youth.

They asked the Congress and the BJP leaders to hold protest rallies in states where they were in power, demanding welfare schemes and development programmes being implemented in Telangana.

Agriculture minister S. Niranjan Reddy said Revanth was raising a hue and cry by releasing certain photographs and videos stating that Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao had sown paddy in 150 acres at his farmhouse in Erravelli during rabi.

"The TRS government never imposed a ban on paddy cultivation. It only asked farmers not to sow paddy in rabi. We clearly told all farmers that those who have paddy purchase agreements with rice milers or seed companies can grow paddy as usual. We made it clear that there will be no government paddy procurement centres in rabi. If Revanth has agricultural lands, he too can grow paddy. Who is stopping him? He is just trying to make an issue out of non-issue by announcing to hold Rachabanda programmes in Erravelli and elsewhere in the state," Niranjan Reddy said.

Animal husbandry minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav termed  Revanth's ‘Rachabanda’ and Bandi Sanjy's ‘Nirudhyoga Deeksha’ a mere 'publicity stunt'.

"No one is taking them seriously. Out of frustration, they are resorting to these cheap publicity gimmicks and trying to garner media and public attention. If Revanth has guts, he should show at least one Congress-ruled state which is implementing better schemes than Telangana for farmers and agriculture. If Bandi Sanjay has guts, he should release a white paper on how many jobs the BJP government at the Centre has provided to youth in the last seven years. The TRS government has released a white paper on 1.31 lakh government jobs provided in last seven years," Yadav said.

TRS MLAs Balka Suman, K. Mahesh Reddy, Nomula Bhagat and MLC Bhanu Prasad also addressed the press meets accusing the Congress and the BJP of 'colluding' in Telangana to defame the government and to defeat the TRS.
