Nirmala Sitharaman reacted strongly to KTR’s tweet. He denied the criticism that the Center is neglecting Telangana. The Telangana ministers were also furious over the comments made by them that they were giving too much to the center in the form of taxes. She made it clear that funds will be given to the states as per the recommendations of the Finance Commission.
The cesses collected by the center also go to the states. We have given more to the states than the collected cesses. Every paisa given will be communicated to the people at the field level,’ said Nirmala Sitharaman.
Nirmala Sitharaman said that if there is more non-budgetary debt, it will be a loss for any state. He said that there is a debt of Rs. 1.25 lakh on the unborn child in Telangana. Schemes should be based on the revenue of the state.. Any state should pay debts by showing the revenue to pay off the debts. He said that there is no proper DPR for the Kaleshwaram project. They objected that Rs.1.40 lakh crores were spent. He alleged that people are still being cheated by not giving DPR. Nirmala Sitharaman said that they are going to the field level to explain the facts to the people of Telangana.
