Hyderabad: Armoor MLA A Jeevan Reddy demanded that the State BJP leadership should first confirm when the Narendra Modi government will deposit Rs 15 lakh into the bank accounts of people as promised during the 2014 elections. He wanted to know how much black money was brought to India after the Modi government came to power.
Jeevan Reddy shot a letter with nine questions to State BJP president Bandi Sanjay seeking his response to the people of the State.
Speaking to mediapersons at TRS Legislative Party office here on Wednesday, the MLA sought to know the status of Turmeric Board in Nizamabad, Tribal University, and two crore jobs as was promised by the Modi government. He demanded that Bandi Sanjay should first ensure implementation of the promises made by the Modi government to Telangana State, before posing questions to the TRS government in the State.
He condemned the derogatory remarks made by Nizamabad MP D Arvind against Minister KT Rama Rao and MLC K Kavitha. He challenged Arvind to get Turmeric Board to Nizamabad or at least a turmeric-based major industry using his ‘so-called influence’ at the Centre.
“The Union government announced Rs 8,000 crore package for sugarcane farmers in Uttar Pradesh. What stops the Centre from extending similar support to sugarcane farmers in the State?,” he questioned. He termed Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana as a failure and stated that even the Parliamentary Committee itself had found fault with the scheme.
Jeevan Reddy blamed Congress and TDP for driving youngsters like Srikanth Chary who sacrificed their lives for the cause of Telangana State. He said leaders like TPCC president A Revanth Reddy should be questioned for his actions as per directions of TDP president N Chandrababu Naidu then and AICC chairperson Sonia Gandhi now.
He dared Revanth Reddy to show his capability in the Huzurabad bypolls rather than making unnecessary allegations and promises in public.
MLC Yegge Mallesham also spoke.
