Harish Rao - Sakshi Post

Telangana Finance Minister T Harish Rao on Monday criticised centre for making false promises during elections. Harish Rao demanded that the government should release a white paper on filling two crore jobs per year as promised during elections.

Addressing the press meet at Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) Legislature Party office on Monday, Harish Rao said, "The people of Telangana and the country thought that the two-day BJP National Working Committee meeting, would give some directions but people are left disappointed. Nothing was seen except the show of authority of the leaders."

Citing the NITI Aayog’s data, Harish Rao asserted that Telangana is the largest grain producer after Punjab. He questioned, "How can 2 crore 60 lakh tonnes of grain be harvested if there is no water?"

The Finance Minister explained that the per capita income of Telangana is higher than the states with BJP governments. He further stated that "KCR government is a single-engine government but we are making more progress than the double-engine government."

He said that the state government is putting all its efforts into the development of Telangana and today, it is a role model for the country. He asserted that more development will take place in the state if the centre releases funds to the state. 

Harish Rao added, "The BJP Government promised to offer 2 crore jobs every year and in eight years, 16 crore jobs had to be offered but the central government failed. On the other hand, the Telangana Government has issued a notification for 1.50 lakh posts and of these 1.35 lakh posts had been already filled up. In addition to these, the state government was filling up 91,000 vacancies in different departments."
