Telangana’s State Assembly may convene a special session during the last week of May to address the ‘vindictive’ politics and a general sense of apathy by the Union government towards the state.
As directed by the Chief Minister, the officials are making necessary arrangements for the special session.
He will address the issue of “Centre’s discrimination against the State and how it created obstacles even for the State to secure institutional borrowings stating that the government had exceeded FRBM limits.”
The Assembly is likely to adopt a resolution after discussing the issue asking the Modi government at the Centre to stop discrimination and allow the State to raise loans. The government had projected Rs 53,990 crore as open market loans for 2022.
Telangana planned to borrow Rs 4,000 crore each month by selling security bonds through the RBI. Previously, the Union Finance Minister had objected to the state seeking loans through corporations and security bonds.
Further, the Centre questioned the increasing burden of debt on the State government and asked why it had to take large loans on behalf of corporations with government guarantees.
It has been reported that the CM is compiling the data regarding borrowings by the BJP-ruled States and the Centre’s restrictions on non-BJP-ruled States.
A resolution will be adopted in the Assembly to address this issue. Meanwhile, the State Finance department has taken legal action against the Centre on the issue of borrowings. Different options will be explored to find a solution at the earliest, officials said.
KT Rama Rao, TRS working president and minister, also accused Modi of discriminating against Telangana in sanctioning government medical colleges. He was referring to the Prime Minister’s recent interactions with Gujarat government scheme beneficiaries.
Using Twitter, the Minister reminded Modi that he was the Prime Minister of all India and not just Gujarat. He stated that Telangana’s youngsters were being refused access to medical training due to the Centre’s failure to sanction even one medical school in the last eight years.
