Congress leader and former MP Ponnam Prabhakar today alleged that despite Telangana being meted out "gross injustice" in the recent Union Budget, Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao remained unconcerned.
Speaking to the media at Gandhi Bhavan on Monday, Ponnam said that the government had failed to get the projects promised in the bifurcation act including the Bayyaram Steel Factory and AIIMS to the state year after year in the budgets.
Ponnam recalled that the Telangana Congress leaders in the united state had fought with their own Central government for a separate Telangana outside the Parliament, and now the AP government was getting ready to launch a movement against the NDA government of which it is a constituent for doing injustice to that state, but the KCR government was remaining calm despite having no connection with the NDA government, which only showed that it was in collusion with the BJP, he alleged.
He also pointed out that the Chief Minister had extended his support to the GST but was failing to question the BJP when it did injustice to the infant state.
Ponnam claimed that the reason for KCR's silence was that his corrupt deals had resulted in Prime Minister Narendra Modi having him by the scruff of his neck.
He also criticized the state BJP leaders for not responding to the "injustices meted out" to the state.
"We will prepare an action plan to launch a movement against the Centre to force it to fulfill its assurances made to the state," he said.
