Hyderabad: Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao slammed BJP State president Bandi Sanjay for resorting to personal abuse rather than responding to his questions. He stated that people with poor subject knowledge and lack of understanding of administrative affairs, make such personal abuses.
Speaking to mediapersons at Pragathi Bhavan here on Monday, the TRS President advised the BJP leaders to stop personal abuses. He ridiculed all the personal attacks in the name of criticism. He felt that the BJP leaders wanted to chant the same mantra for all ailments which might boomerang. “They keep resorting to personal abuses. They try to portray me as a drunkard. Did he accompany me or did he mix my drinks? Is it your ‘Sanskaar’ that you learnt from your teachers?” he asked.
Referring to Bandi Sanjay’s threats to plough and even seize his farmhouse, the Chief Minister censured the BJP for constantly raking up the issue of his farm house, which was built after paying the due taxes. “Why do you want to plough my farmhouse? Are you a tractor driver? Try to step into my farm house, and you will be cut into pieces,” he said. He stated that his family had sacrificed thousands of acres of farm land and was compensated with a few hundreds of acres which they were cultivating. “I have around 100 acres of farm land and I am cultivating it. We are not doing any illegal businesses to hide it. Further, it is my constituency and what is wrong to spend some time in my constituency,” he questioned.
He found fault with Sanjay for asking farmers to cultivate paddy during the Kharif (Vaanakalam) season as well as upcoming Rabi (Yasangi) season, claiming that the Centre was ready to purchase entire paddy. He appealed to farmers to not to fall for Sanjay as it could be a loss for themselves. However, he suggested that farmers who have tie up with the seed companies, millers or traders, could cultivate paddy.
“We cannot trust this Central government. The State government does not have necessary mechanism to store such huge paddy yield. We don’t want farmers to suffer losses by believing these BJP leaders,” he said. The State government is ready to support farmers who are willing to opt for alternative crop which is also profitable in the market. They must question the BJP leaders in all villages.
Calling the state BJP’s criticism of the TRS government ‘joke of the millenium’, the Chief Minister pointed out that BJP MPs in the Parliament themselves have praised Telangana. “Be it law and order, economy, schemes, or employment- Telangana stands apart. The Centre has remained a mute spectator due to its bad policies. They are committing mistakes, inefficient, lack of proper delivery mechanism.
He accused the BJP of overthrowing the elected governments in Karnataka and Madhya Pradesh, and assuming power against the popular mandate. He pointed out that the TRS had come to power with public’s mandate for second consecutive term and had secured more seats than the previous term. He felt that the Opposition parties digging up his old promises was like outdated food.
