The Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) chief also addressed the press conference explaining the reasons for not attending the meeting and launching a scathing attack on the Centre.

He alleged that due to lack of planning and cooperative federalism, the district is going through its worst phase with unprecedented problems of depreciating rupee, high inflation, soaring prices and rising unemployment coupled with low economic growth.

“These issues affect people’s lives and are of great concern to the nation. But they are not discussed in NITI Aayog meetings. I believe that the Union Government is a silent spectator of this serious emerging scenario and often resort to juggling words to play on people. emotions,” the CM wrote.

He also referred to the irresponsible statements of some leaders in high positions about the use of bulldozers, counter-killing, 80:20 ratio and references with religious overtones. Noting that it was disrupting the communal harmony and social fabric of the nation, besides drawing international criticism, he faulted the Union government for not taking any steps to control the situation.

KCR also criticized the Center for treating borrowing by state-owned PSUs for their capital needs as government borrowing. He said this has hampered the progress of Telangana and many other states. “This discrimination is practiced against the states without any remorse, even as the Government of India resorts to indiscriminate borrowing in the open market,” he wrote.

Recalling that NITI Aayog was started with the objective of cooperative federalism, he said that after seven years of functioning, it is now clear that this clear objective has been observed with greater violation. He argued that the federal structure of India is being systematically eroded by some deliberate actions of the Centre.

“These developments are very unfavorable to pioneering states like Telangana. The flagrant discrimination of some states even in the performance of the legal functions entrusted to them by the Constitution leaves much to be desired.”
