Ahead of Amit Shah meet, TRS working president KT Rama Rao questions ‘bias’ against Telangana | Hyderabad News

HYDERABAD: Ahead of Union home minister Amit Shah’s visit to Telangana to address a public meeting in Telangana, TRS working president KT Rama Rao shot off a letter to the Union minister seeking clarification on the issues raised by him during his tour.
“The BJP government has been discriminating against Telangana for the last eight years and spewing venom against the state. The BJP national leaders only know to tour Telangana once in a while and spread hatred amongst people. The party did not fulfil a single promise made to Telangana in the AP Reorganisation Act, 2014 but fulfilled every requirement of states like Gujarat,” KTR said in his letter.
“We will continue to question and fight for the rights of the people of Telangana and demand our rightful share. Telangana people know the true colours of the BJP which has not done any good to Telangana nor will change its step-motherly treatment towards Telangana,” the TRS working president and minister said.
He listed out 27 issues in his letter and sought reply from Shah on a rail coach factory in Kazipet, Bayyaram steel plant, central government institutions and medical colleges sanctioned to state. “The BJP government had sanctioned a rail coach factory to Gujarat and allocated 20 crore, why not for Telangana? Why this discrimination?” he asked. He said Telangana has been the top investment destination for global firms, yet, Telangana is not being given any industrial incentives.
“Scrapping ITIR project in Telangana denying city’s rapid development in the IT sector shows how BJP conspires against Telangana. Why are you not allocating new software technology parks to Telangana whose IT sector is progressing at a rapid speed?” he said.
On the promises made to Telangana earlier, the minister said BJP leader Sushma Swaraj had promised national project status to Palamuru-Rangareddy Project during 2014 election campaign, but BJP did not keep its promise.
