Harish mocks visit of Delhi party leaders to seek votes

Finance Minister T. Harish Rao said urged people to question the Delhi party leaders, who are coming to gullies to seek votes for the BJP, about their contributions to Telangana.

We have to prepare a chargesheet against BJP which is questioning the existence of Telangana. The BJP government at the Centre did not respond when floods hit Hyderabad. Why must the people vote for that party, asked Mr. Harish Rao while addressing a press conference at the residence of Patancheru MLA G. Mahipal Reddy on Sunday.

BJP has been responding differently to different States. While assistance was extended to Karnataka ruled by BJP, there was no response even after Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao wrote to the Centre seeking aid. The Union government has cancelled the ITIR sanctioned for the State. Despite repeated appeals, the Centre is not responding, said Mr. Harish Rao, adding that the States Aarogyasri health scheme is better than the Centres Ayushman Bharat.

Meanwhile, at a meeting held with residents of HIG Colony at Bharathi Nagar division on Sunday, Mr. Harish Rao appealed to people to vote for TRS in the municipal elections, promising to address their problems. He said sitting corporator Sindhu Aadarsh Reddy has addressed several problems in the past and the remaining problems would be resolved in a systematic manner once the elections were over.

MLAs Mahipal Reddy, Ch. Kranthi Kiran and MLC V. Bhoopal Reddy also participated in the programme.
