Brushing aside Telangana Chief Minister Chandrasekhar Rao’s demand for an apology, BJP national president Amit Shah stood by his statement that the Centre provided over 1 lakh-crore rupees aid to Telangana state.
Addressing the party’s booth level committee meeting in Hyderabad last night, he said, the Narendra Modi government gave over 1 lakh-crore rupees aid to Telangana. It’s a fact we are not doing a favour to Telangana.
It is the right of Telangana people, the BJP chief said. He added, Telangana people have a right over Narendra Modi government and it’s the duty of the Centre to develop Telangana. Union Informationand Broadcasting Minister Venkaiah Naidu speaking on the occasion criticized MIM party and asserted that the BJP can come to power in Telangana and win the Hyderabad Lok Sabha seat.
