Hyderabad, May 19 (NSS): Senior BJP leader and former Union minister Bandaru Dattatraya today said he was shocked to hear comments of Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao at the NTPC alleging non-fulfilment of promises of the Union government made in the AP Reorganization Act.
Refuting the allegations of the KCR, Dattatraya said the stone for present NTPC project was laid by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and released Rs 11,500 crore.
He said the Telangana CM, instead of praising Narendra Modi for Central assistance, was making baseless allegations that the Centre had not given a single rupee to the State during the last five years. He also said the Telangana State would get the entire 1600 mw of power from the NTPC project. (NSS)
