Hyderabad: TRS MP Nama Nageshwar Rao today lambasted the Centre for not acting on the pending State issues for a long time. He alleged that despite repeated appeals and representations made by Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, the Centre has been sitting on the issues of State bifurcation and other demands.
Speaking to the media in Delhi after attending an all-parties meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi ahead of Monday’ Parliament session, Nama said he sought an opportunity to discuss on the long pending State bifurcation issues. He also said his party MPs will raise the State’s problems and issues in both the Houses of Parliament. “There are several public issues in the country to be discussed once a week in Parliament under Rule 193, he said.
“They are pollution, employment and farmers problems in Parliament”, Rao said, adding that the Centre was postponing the Telangana State issues deliberately instead of extending cooperation even as the Prime Minister sought cooperation of all parties for smooth functioning of the winter session.
