Hyderabad: TRS MLC K Kavitha lambasted union finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman for questioning the Telangana administration over not putting up Prime Minister Narendra Modi's pictures on ration shops.
"Sitharaman Ji, if you want the Prime Minister's pictures to be put up, we will surely do so. We will put them up on gas cylinders, packets of urea, petrol and diesel stations, oil and dal packets. Wherever the costs are rising, we will put up pictures of Prime Minister Narendra Modi," K Kavitha said addressing a public meeting at Nizamabad. MLC Kavita distributed Aasara's beneficiaries' pensions at Rajiv Gandhi Auditorium at Nizamabad.
During her presence at the Ceremony, MLC and daughter of Telangana Chief Minister slammed the BJP government and Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman amid the recent "photo-op" stir in Telangana.
Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman had questioned the local administration for not putting up pictures of Prime Minister Modi on ration shops. "Union Finance Minister came to Telangana. It is good that she came. We are happy to receive guests. But she went to a ration shop and picked a fight with the collector about the Prime Minister's pictures not being put up. In the country's history, never were Prime Ministers' pictures put up outside PDS shops. Not in Nehru's time, Manmohan Singh or even Vajpayee, no one has had their pictures put up," Kavitha said.
She also accused the BJP government of depriving the poor of their fundamental rights. "if the government at the Centre cannot fulfill people's needs, it should support states so that they can support their people. BJP has no right to ridicule leaders," she said.
Kavitha said that the BJP government is oblivious to the KCR government's flagship schemes. "That reflects who cares for the people," he said.
