Hyderabad, Aug.24 (NSS): Minister for Tourism & Excise V Srinivas Goud today flayed the State BJP leaders for making false charges against the government. He thanked Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao for announcing to complete Palamur-Ranga Reddy irrigation project by next rainy season.
Speaking to mediapersons here on Saturday, the minister accused the BJP of resorting to malign the image of the government. He recalled that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had appreciated Mission Bhagiratha and took exception to the State BJP leaders for criticizing the KCR government for political mileage. “If Modi appreciated the schemes, how the State party leaders found fault with them, he questioned.
“Several Union ministers, Niti Ayog as well as other States have appreciated our welfare schemes and flagship programs. Though the Centre did not give funds for the State despite Niti Ayog recommendation”, Srinivas charged. The entire credit will go to the Chief Minister for his vision and foresight, the minister said and slammed the BJP leaders, who did not visit the States being ruled by their party, were only making vague comments. Telangana has been making rapid strides in all sectors, including power, he added.
