Telangana Industry and Commerce minister KT Rama Rao on Wednesday shared a post on Twitter in which he took a dig at the central government over the fuel price hike. In his tweet, he said that fuel prices have shot up because of NPA central government.

He further said that name-calling states for not reducing VAT even though they never increased it, is this the co-operative federalism that PM Modi is talking about.

KTR then said that Telangana has not increased VAT on fuel since 2014 and rounded off only once.

In his post, he also that his states do not get 41 per cent of their rightful share because of the cess imposed by the central government. In the form of a cess, the ruling government is looting 11.4 per cent from the state and they are getting only 29.6 per cent for Financial Year 2023.

He further requested that the central government should scrap cess so that they can give petrol at Rs 70 and diesel at Rs 60 all over India. He concluded by saying one nation-one price?

Recently, PM Modi held a meeting with the Chief Ministers of all the states through video conferencing and discussed several issues. PM Modi even called opposition ruled states to follow the ruling government’s decision by reducing taxes on petrol and diesel to provide relief to the people from the price hike.

In the meeting, PM said that in order to reduce the burden of rising petrol and diesel prices, the central government reduced the excise duty last November. We had urged the states too to reduce their taxes. Some states reduced the tax and provided benefits to the consumers but some did not do so.

He even named a few states and said that states like Telangana, Maharashtra, West Bengal, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, and Jharkhand did not follow the central government and people in these states are burdened with price rise.

After this, he has been drawing flak over his statement.

Priyanka Gandhi asks for how long will BJP keep blaming Congress

Priyanka Gandhi today addressed public rally in Ramnagar, Uttarakhand, where she asked BJP that for how long they will keep blaming Congress

Published

Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Saturday responded to the Bharatiya Janata Party’s frequently made accusation that nothing happened in the country during the decades the grand-old party ruled, claiming the party is being responsible despite having been out of office for the last ten years

How long will you continue blaming Congress? Priyanka said, the Congress has not been in power for the last ten years, during a public rally in Ramnagar, Uttarakhand.

She said, the BJP has had a complete majority in government for the last 10 years, but they now claim that they want 400 paar, or an even larger majority. They claim that in 75 years, nothing has changed. Priyanka said, in Uttarakhand, the home of IITs, IIMs, and AIIMS, how have these capabilities grown if nothing has changed? Was it feasible that Chandrayaan landed on the moon if Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru hadn’t constructed these? she continued.

Priyanka criticised the Modi government for abandoning youth who put in a lot of effort to enlist in the Army, using the contentious Agniveer project as an example.

The Congress leader said, in his speech, Prime Minister Modi mentioned soldiers, but who introduced the Agniveer scheme? A sense of patriotism drives thousands of young people to dedicate years of their lives to enlisting in the army. They believe that by continuing in their work, they will support both their parents and the nation. But by introducing a plan like Agniveer, Modi ji broke the dreams of the youth, she claimed.

She further claimed that PM Modi and the BJP had abandoned Devbhoomi (Uttarakhand) after the  terrible disaster.

Priyanka took aim at the Prime Minister, by saying that he believes everyone is corrupt while he is not. They have forgotten about jobs and inflation because they are too preoccupied with using the ED, CBI, and IT to win over leaders to their party and overthrow the government. The question of accepting donations and conducting business came to light once the electoral bond was disclosed, she added.

Earlier this month, the Congress party presented its Nyay Patra, or Lok Sabha election manifesto. Among other things, it calls for a minimum support price (MSP) for farmers crops.
