Kalvakuntla Kavitha, leader of Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS), escalated the attack on the center over the failed promises to Telangana and today addressed a series of questions to Amit Shah, Home Affairs Minister, who is on a day-long visit to Hyderabad, placed. Ms Kavitha arrives hours after her brother and Telangana minister KT Rama Rao or KTR’s open letter to the senior BJP leader about the “injustice” his party has done to the southern state.
In a series of tweets, which began with the welcome of Mr Shah in Telangana, the TRS asked a number of questions about pending central grants to Telangana, the “high-flying” inflation, “record-breaking unemployment in the country, and also about the high fuel consumption “prices in the country.
Ms Kavitha also questioned why the country is witnessing “maximum common unrest under BJP”.
Shri @AmitShah Welcome to Telangana !! Please tell the people of Telangana when the central government will clean up the following:
Fees of Financial Commission grants: More than Rs 3000 crores
Backward regional allocation: Rs 1350 crore
GST fee: Rs 2247 crore 1/5

She also asked the Minister of the Union to tell the people of Telangana why the Modi government has failed to set up central universities like IIT and IIM in Telangana in the last eight years when it rules.
She also questioned the union government’s ignorance about the NITI Aayog’s recommendation of ₹ 24 000 Cr funds to Mission Kakatiya and Mission Bhagiratha – which inspired the coveted central government scheme of Har Ghar Jal.
Ms Kavitha also accused the center of “hypocrisy” by awarding national project status to irrigation projects in Karnataka governed by the BJP, but denying the same for irrigation projects in Telangana.
Late Friday, TRS leader KTR posed 27 questions to the BJP leader about the stepmotherly treatment given to Telangana by the BJP-led government at the Center and challenged him to answer it during his speech in the public assembly as to whether he really was sincere towards Telangana. “We will fight for the rights of the people of Telangana and demand our rightful share under the AP Reorganization Act,” he said.
The questions by the TRS leader covered topics such as BJP’s ignorance of promises made under the AP Reorganization Act, unavailability of central educational institution / medical college in Telangana and pending promise by late BJP leader Sushma Swaraj’s election promise of national status to an irrigation project in the state.
While trying to step out of his domestic territory and venture into national politics, the TRS began intensifying its attack on the BJP.
Party leaders, K Chandrashekar Rao, recently addressed the TRS plenary in Hyderabad, saying some lawmakers have expressed the view that it is time for TRS to change into BRS (Bharatiya Rashtra Samiti). It was received with loud cheers from the 3000 party leaders who gathered at the Hyderabad International Conference Center, HICC in Hyderabad.
The party has already acquired land and is building an impressive party office in the national capital, Mr Rao said.
