Telangana: Criticizing the Bharatiya Janata Party President Amit Shah, Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao today said that whatever Shah promised in the past three days is nothing but blatant lies and that he should apologize to the people of Telangana.
Rao said he challenged Shah to prove that even Rs 200 crore of additional funds were provided to the state.
He said if the BJP leader could prove so, he was ready to resign as Chief Minister.
“Whatever he said in the past three days is nothing but blatant lies. He should apologize to the people of Telangana,” Rao told the media here.
The Chief Minister said the Centre earned Rs 50,013 crore in taxes from Telangana during 2016-17 while it gave only Rs 24,561 crore under all central schemes.
He said Shah should know that it is Telangana which gave Rs 25,452 crore to the Centre.
