Warangal Urban: Telangana municipal administration and urban development minister K.T Rama Rao on12 April claimed that Warangal city would soon take shape as a futuristic city with the help of major projects like Metro Neo, Bhadrakali Geo-Biodiversity Park, and several others taken up by the TRS government.
He said Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao has a special plan of action for the development of Warangal and it will be executed at any cost. KTR was in Warangal to inaugurate and lay the foundation stones for several development projects across the city. As part of the tour, he addressed a public meeting at the Khila Warangal.
"Such a remarkable change in Warangal city was possible only because the Chief Minister loves the people of Warangal and has allotted required funds for the city. Even the promise of providing daily drinking water to every household has been fulfilled today," he said.
Criticizing the Central government for denying Warangal a wagon factory, he said it affected the employment aspirations of the local youth. "My queries regarding this resulted in abuses from the BJP activists but they never gave an answer. The coach factory in Latur in Maharastra was announced in 2018 and has been completed already but what was promised to Telangana in 2014 has not been given till date," he said.
The BJP promised 'ache din' and asked everyone to open a Jan Dhan account promising to credit Rs. 15 lakh each which has remained a ruse to this day, KTR said, adding the prices of fuel, gas, and even fertilizers have been hiked. "If you ask them about this, they say it is for the benefit of the country," KTR added.
Since its formation, Telangana gave Rs. 2,73,000 lakh crores to the Centre in the form of various taxes. However, what the state got in return was only Rs. 1.4lakh crores. The BJP leaders, including Home minister Amit Shah, are deceiving the people of the state claiming that it was the Central government that is providing the funds for the development schemes, the minister said.
Referring to the upcoming GWMC elections, KTR appealed to the people to vote for the TRS keeping in mind the change it has brought to the lives of the people of Telangana.
