Warangal Urban: MAUD Minister K T Rama Rao put the BJP leadership on notice on Monday against foul-mouthing Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao or be prepared to be paid back in the same coin.
Taking exception to the derogatory comments made against the Chief Minister by BJP leaders and the party’s so-called followers on social media, Rama Rao categorically stated that patience was wearing thin on the ruling party leadership now.
“This is the last warning to the BJP leaders. TRS will not tolerate such foul language anymore as the ruling party leaders can also hurl the same filthy and foul language at them, and we have mastery over the vocabulary,” he said, in a chat with the media during his day-long visit to Warangal when projects worth over Rs 2,175 crore were either launched or foundation stones were laid for their implementation.
Advising the saffron party leaders not to resort to such cheap gimmicks against a person who had achieved Statehood for Telangana, the Minister said it was deplorable that the BJP was using even young boys to make obscene comments against the Chief Minister. “This is just not acceptable to the TRS,” he said.
Rama Rao, training his guns on the BJP government at the Centre, listed out various projects like the Kazipet Coach Factory, Bayyaram steel plant and Tribal University, among others, that the Union government was not willing to implement despite these being promised in the AP Reorganisation Act.
Coming down heavily on the BJP leaders for their false propaganda on funds allotted to the State in general and to Warangal city in particular, Rama Rao said the State government was ready to release a white paper on the funds allotted to Warangal city by the State government in a week. “If you (BJP) have the guts, release a white paper on funds allotted by the Centre to facilitate a debate over it ahead of the coming elections,” he said.
“The BJP has no right to talk about job recruitment taken up by the TRS government, since it had provided 1,32,899 jobs through TSPSC and other departments since the party came to power in 2014. In fact, it is the BJP leadership that must answer as to how many jobs they had created in the public sector after promising two crore jobs every year,” he said.
Alleging that Opposition parties were provoking innocent unemployed youths to commit suicide, the Minister said that Boda Sunil Naik of Mahabubabad district was a victim of such provocation. “Sunil, in a video, said he wanted to become an IAS officer, but failed to do so. Does the State government recruit IAS officers?” he asked, and added that the State government would soon fill 50,000 more job vacancies.
