Former MP Kalvakuntla Kavitha today lashed out at the BJP and Congress for speaking “superficially” in support of farmers. She accused both sides of operating as a “syndicate” that deprives farmers of their basic rights while standing up for them superficially.
Daughter of Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao, Ms. Kavitha launched another attack on the BJP and Congress while addressing a party rally in Telangana’s Korutla constituency.
She added that the Congress party was doing nothing for turmeric farmers, while the Telangana government was determined to fight for them.
While poking fun at the Prime Minister, Ms Kavitha said the truth is “Modi hai to Mushkil hai” while pointing to rising inflation and unemployment.
She further lashed out at the central government for not clearing the Finance Commission dues worth Rs 3,000 crore, the Backward Region Grant of Rs 1,350 crore and the pending GST compensation of Rs 2,247 crore.
On the recommendation of the Niti Aayog, she said the center has no response to their “stepmotherly behavior” towards Telangana. Former MP Kavitha further asked the Center why the Modi government has not allocated even a single IIM, IIT, medical university or Navodaya school to the state.
She called the Congress’ Warangal Statement a “paper full of lies” and asked Rahul Gandhi how many times he fought for the farmers of Telangana. She further asked the former president of Congress how many congressional states have kept their promises to farmers.
Ms Kavitha, who is also an MLC, addressed national leaders as “political tourists” who visit the state to score political points. She said that only the TRS government under KCR has assisted the farmers in every step and transferred Rs 50,000 crore as direct transfer of benefits to the farmers of Telangana.
