The Telangana government on Saturday set a new deadline of April 2 for the Center to procure paddy in the state, while Ugadi warned to intensify its agitation against the BJP government over the stagnation of paddy procurement.
The state’s ruling Telangana State Association (TRS) has taunted the BJP for raising fuel and gas prices after the polls in five states. Telangana Minister T Harish Rao said, “The Modi government is only supporting corporates and businessmen by killing the poor by raising fuel and gas prices after the polls in five states.”
The state’s finance and health minister has accused the corona of resorting to fraud by looting the income of the poor and middle class in the wake of the epidemic. “We are talking about fuel surge after the polls and the Modi government has proved it. It has asked the Center to withdraw prices to save the lives of the poor,” Rao said.
“The rise in fuel and gas prices has proved and exposed the real color of the BJP government,” Rao said, accusing the party of “suppressing and burdening the people through policy failures”.
He wondered why some state BJP leaders, including Union Minister G Kisan Reddy, were failing to talk to the Center about the state’s problems.
“The Center should be asked to take some positive steps to help Kisan Reddy in the interest of the poor and the state. The BJP government is strict in denying subsidies and laxity to the poor, ”Rao said.
