TDP lashed out at BJP saying that centre has allocated Rs 1500 crores for smart cities across India, however it has not released even a single rupee for it.

 

The constant tug of war between Telugu Desam Party and Bharatiya Janata Party seems to find no conclusive end. After Shivsena, TDP was the second party who have been in a tiff with BJP. TDP chief and the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh Chandrababu Naidu had recently told the party MPs to pressurize the Central Government to pay more attention to Andhra Pradesh’s issues.

However, hitting at the ally Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had listed the provisions Centre made for the state of Andhra Pradesh. However, TDP hitting back at the BJP has refuted Centre’s claim regarding financial support extended to the state. TDP Party knowledge Centre on Sunday released a draft of 8 pages presenting facts to counter the claims of BJP.

The BJP has mentioned that to cover the state’s revenue deficit, Centre has allocated Rs 3,979.5 crore. It also promised to allocate Rs 22,113 crore to the state by 2020. TDP said that balance amount is still due and Centre backing out from its earlier claim is issuing only 120 crores.

To construct the capital city, Amravati– India’s first smart and world-class city, the centre had promised Rs 3,500 crores. However, so far only Rs 1,500 crores had been released. TDP lashed out at BJP saying that centre has allocated Rs 1500 crores for smart cities across India, however it has not released even a single rupee for it. In the 8-pages report, the TDP countered BJP on 25 more issues.

TDP attacked the BJP saying the 27-pages report released by it is misguiding the public. It said the claims made by the Centre are more like a “Cinematic Script”. The report further mentioned that after separation, Andhra Pradesh now needs to build a Raj Bhavan, the Secretariat, the Assembly and other institutional buildings for Amravati. The cost that will be endured is measured at around Rs 42,935 crores. The Party asked whether the 1500 crores released by the Centre is enough when compared to this amount.

The ally is also upset with BJP over Centre’s lax approach towards the Polavaram project. TDP said the centre had agreed to cover the entire cost of the project. However, it has only released Rs 4,662 crores for the project costing Rs 7,900 crores. The party said the rest of the amount is not yet released by the centre.

Bengaluru: Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister G.Parmeshwara on Thursday accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of manipulating the Electronic Voting Machine (EVM) in the recently culminated assembly polls.

“Some of our leaders and I personally feel EVMs have been manipulated by BJP. Many Congress leaders lost at places even where Congress had a stronghold. We will complain to the Election Commission,” said Parmeshwara while addressing the media. “The Congress Party will approach the Election Commision regarding this,” added the newly appointed Deputy Chief Minister.

When asked about the Congress forming the government in Karnataka in coalition with JD(s),he said the party high command took the decision to restrict the “dictatorship of the prime minister”.

He claimed that the Congress- JD (S) alliance will mark the beginning of a new era.

Yeddyurappa accuses Kumaraswamy of ‘arrogant, authoritative’ behaviour

BJP state president B S Yeddyurappa today accused Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy of “arrogant and authoritative behaviour”, claiming that he did not seem to have faith or trust in the Congress, the coalition partner of his party JD(S).

Questioning Kumaraswamy for not allowing Deputy Chief Minister G Parameshwara from the Congress to speak in his maiden press conference, Yeddyurappa said it indicated his lack of camaraderie towards the coalition partner.

“Kumaraswamy’s arrogant and authoritative behaviour makes it clear to the people of the state that he does not have faith or trust in the Congress party,” Yeddyurappa claimed in a statement here.

“What can people expect from such an unholy alliance? It also indicates lack of camaraderie in him,” he alleged.

In addition, his behaviour with a sober politician like Parmeshwara was an insult to the political community itself, Yeddyurappa claimed.

The BJP leader said Kumaraswamy’s remark against Lingayat pontiff Panditaradhya Shivacharya Swamiji, asking the latter not to poke his nose in politics was “unfortunate and unwarranted”.

“Such derogatory remarks from him on first day of his becoming chief minister are both surprising and shocking,” he added.

“Kumaraswamy’s comments about Swamijis who are a guiding spirit for the people are in poor taste and had hurt the feelings of crores of followers and disciples,” he claimed.

Kumaraswamy’s remarks exposed his bent of mind besides indicating his “arrogance of power,” Yeddyurappa claimed.

New Delhi: The Congress Party on Thursday questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his silence on the police firing in Tuticorin in which around 13 people died and more than 100 were injured.

Senior Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi in a press conference criticized PM Modi and said that”The fitness challenge has time enough for the PM to respond. You are all running on a treadmill but getting nowhere. You are fit for a camera but not fit for governance.”


Attacking the BJP, Singhvi said that If a plant is located in an Industrial Zone, it requires no environmental clearance merely cause of the fact that it is situated in an Industrial Zone. This was a major change made by the BJP. There is no requirement of public consultation anymore.

“There has not been a single suspension despite the firings in which nine people have lost their lives, No enquiry has yet been formally called for.” added the Congress leader.

Questioning Chief Minister E Palaniswami, he asked that will the CM explain why he has not visited the site till date? “Who ordered the firing? There is a protocol. Under whose authority or supervision did it happen? he added.

He also stated that the Tamil Nadu Govt. has forfeited the moral right to rule.

On Tuesday, the police fired at the protest rally demanding the closure of the Sterlite Copper’s smelting unit in Thoothukudi. Around 13 people died in the firing while 60 persons, including police, suffered injuries in stone pelting and have been admitted to the Government Medical College Hospital in Thoothukudi.
