The BRS parliamentary party meeting on Sunday, 29 January, expressed concern over the constantly deteriorating situation in the country due to unfortunate policies being followed by the central government.
BRS chief and Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao asked party MPs to fight against the anti-people policies being followed by the Centre during the budget session of Parliament.
KCR said the mistakes made by the Centre should be brought to the attention of the nation by acting strategically and raising the voice on the public issues of the state as well as the country during the Parliament session.
He made it clear that the Central government should follow all the possible ways in the parliamentary democratic way and stop the undemocratic policies.
The chief minister, who chaired the meeting at Pragathi Bhavan in Hyderabad on Sunday, said the policies followed by the BJP government at the Centre had become obstacles to the development of the country.
‘Centre favouring corporates’
“This is unfortunate. The Centre is showing love to its favoured corporate forces and cancelling loans worth lakhs of crores of rupees,” he said.
The stakes of the public sector company LIC were handed over to industrialist Adani, and now the country was observing the Adani companies losing lakhs of crores of rupees on a daily basis as the value of their shares suddenly falls, he said.
“It is clear that their profits are not all wealth. To contribute to such financial manipulations, the Centre is making huge losses by privatising all the wealth of the country,” he said.
“Both Houses of Parliament should raise their voices against the dangerous economic policies being followed by the central government by keeping the profits in the private sector,” he added.
Rao asked the BRS MPs to strongly condemn the attitude of the central government which is harming the interests of the people of the country.
“The Centre is undermining the federal spirit and causing trouble to the states in many ways,” he said.
‘Centre misusing Governors’
“The Central government should be made to tell the nation the reason behind the progress of a state like Telangana, which is running on the path of progress, and why the Centre is creating obstacles in many ways,” said KCR, adding that the Central government was also misusing the system of Governors.
“It is undemocratic for the Centre to keep the Governors in their hands to weaken the states. The MPs of the BRS should strongly oppose in both Houses the evil policies of using the system of Governors — who are supposed to be negotiators between the Centre and states while performing their Constitutional duties — for their own political interests,” he added.

“The Governors were ignoring the decisions taken by the highest bodies, including state Cabinets, Legislative Assemblies. and Legislative Council. As a witness in Parliament, the MPs should highlight the undemocratic policies of the Governors and the attitude of the Centre, which is trying to influence the performance of the state governments and hinder the governance of development,” he noted.
“For the future of the country, join MPs from every party to fight against the BJP government in Parliament on public issues. The prices of petrol, diesel, cooking gas and other essential items are increasing exponentially. The Centre is not considering the common man’s burden due to the daily price hikes,” he said.

‘Sufferings of masses should be made public’
He urged the party MPs to bring the sufferings and hardships of the masses to the attention of the people of the country through both Houses of Parliament.
“It is said that unemployment is increasing day by day in the country. Without paying any attention to the youth of the country and without providing them with job security, and by privatising the government institutions, the Centre is causing immense damage,” said Rao.
He also made it clear to the MPs that they should raise their voice on this issue and added that that the Central government was acting like a fool on the promises of bifurcation to Telangana and there should be an outcry in this regard.
The MPs should raise their voice in the Parliament to implement the rights of Telangana, he added.
