IT and Industries Minister KT Rama Rao lashed out at the Congress, saying the party could not even provide potable water in Chhattisgarh where it was in power but was still leveling baseless allegations against the Bharat Rashtra Samithi government in Telangana.
Speaking at the Mulugu Irrigation Day celebrations on Wednesday, the BRS Working President emphasized the stark differences in agricultural policies between Telangana and Chhattisgarh. Despite the fact that both states cultivate rice and cotton, the Congress government in Chhattisgarh only obtains a paltry 12 quintals per acre from farmers, forcing them to sell the remaining produce in the open market, subject to the whims of millers.
He also criticized Chhattisgarh’s lack of government protection and price support for farmers.
Rama Rao also criticized Congress leaders for failing to provide crop investment subsidies in Chhattisgarh. In contrast, the Telangana government, led by Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao, was providing financial assistance of Rs.10,000 per acre through the Rythu Bandhu scheme.
The Minister urged Telangana residents to consider which party truly prioritized their interests, not just in agriculture and drinking water, but in all aspects of development. He drew attention to the lack of 24-hour free electricity for farmers in Chhattisgarh, emphasizing the importance of exercising caution when deciding who to support and endorse.
The Minister emphasized the transformation of Thandas and Gudems into Gram Panchayats under the governance of the BRS as an example of remarkable progress in Mulugu. He stated that the Integrated District Office Complex (IDOC) in Mulugu was being built with a budget of Rs.65 crore to improve facilities for people visiting the Collector and SP with grievances.
Earlier, in the presence of Ministers Errabelli Dayakar Rao and Satyavati Rathod, he laid foundation stones for various development projects totaling Rs.150 crore, including the construction of IDOC. The SP Office, a digital library, a model bus stand complex, and the Sant Sevalal building all had their foundation stones laid.
Five model police stations were also virtually inaugurated by him. Rama Rao also went to Ramappa temple in Palampet village, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
