You wanted photos of Modi, here you are: TRS puts PMs photos on LPG cylinders

Hyderabad: In a video that went viral on Saturday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi's photo appeared on LPG cylinders in a locality in Hyderabad. This comes a day after Union finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman confronted a district collector for not displaying Mr. Modi's posters at a ration shop in Telangana.

In response to this, some people reportedly belonging to the TRS party prepared a video showing Mr. Modi's photos on gas cylinders, taking a jibe at the increasing gas prices. The posters on the cooking gas cylinders carried a picture of PM Modi along with the price of each cylinder—Rs. 1,105.

The viral video was shared on Twitter by Krishank Manne, the social media convenor of the TRS party. He wrote, "You wanted pictures of Modi ji, here you are Nirmala Sitharaman ji."



The minister for industry and commerce, K.T Rama Rao, also retweeted the post.

The Kamareddy incident

On 2 September, during a visit to public distribution system (PDS) shops at Birkur in Kamareddy district, Ms. Sitharaman questioned officials of the civil supplies department on how much rice the Central government was providing. The flustered official was hesitant to answer and Ms. Sitharaman snapped at his colleague who tried to help him. Under the National Food Security Act, the Central government provides food grains at subsidized rates to rice and coarse grains like bajra.

She further said photographs of Prime Minister Narendra Modi must be displayed at ration shops as the Central government distributes foodgrains under the National Food Security Act.

Responding to this, Telangana's finance and health minister Harish Rao asked Sitharaman what was the logic in putting the PM's photograph in ration shops. He said, "I strongly condemn the remarks of Nirmala Sitharaman. It is ridiculous to have a photograph of the PM at ration shops. This will degrade the position of the PM. Why are Union ministers coming to the state and behaving in this manner? The Union finance minister must apologize."
