Hyderabad, April 20 (IANS) Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) working president K.T. Rama Rao has again hit out at Narendra Modi government for its discrimination against Telangana.
The TRS leader slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi for moving to Gujarat World Health Organisation (WHO) Global Centre for Traditional Medicine (GCTM), which was originally proposed to be set up at Hyderabad.
KTR, as Rama Rao is popularly known, took to Twitter to target the PM and central minister G.Kishan Reddy who comes from Telangana.
“Congratulations to Kishan Reddy Ji, Cabinet Minister in NPA Govt on bringing a prestigious national institute to the state. Oh wait!! As usual, the PM of Gujarat decided that it should move to Jamnagar,” wrote KTR, who had earlier described the National Democratic Government (NDA) at the Centre as Non-Performing Asset (NPA).
“The sage of Modi Ji’s discrimination against Telangana goes on unabated,” added KTR, who is minister for industries, information technology, municipal administration and urban development in Telangana Cabinet headed by his father K. Chandrasekhar Rao.
Prime Minister Modi on Tuesday laid the foundation stone for WHO GCTM at Jamnagar in the presence of WHO chief Tedros Ghebreyesus.
