KCR is going to speak to other opposition leaders on boycotting the President’s budget speech as well as the issue of Governors as Telangana, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Delhi and other states have been facing trouble from Governors.

KCR gave direction to BRS MPs of both the Rajya Sabha and the Lok Sabha regarding the strategies that have to be adopted by the party during the budget session of Parliament starting January 31.

KCR suggested that the budget speech should be dealt with according to conditions prevailing at that time. However, a decision will be taken on budget day on how to deal with the budget speech.

During the meeting, various issues were discussed including budget allocations, funds due from the Centre to the state, and promises in the AP Division Act that the Centre has not fulfilled. The Centre will present the budget in Parliament on February 1.

KCR asked BRS MPs to use the Parliament session to expose the Centre’s failures.

The CM directed BRS MPs to ask the Centre to implement the Rythu Bandhu Scheme and to supply free electricity to farmers throughout the country as it is being done by the Telangana government.

He also asked BRS MPs to pull up the government regarding LIC’s investment in the Adani group. KCR directed his MPs to ask the Centre to implement categorization of SC reservations, ST reservations and for conducting a BC census

The BRS Parliamentary Party meeting was held at the Pragathi Bhavan on Sunday under the chairmanship of Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao. The meeting lasted around four hours and it expressed concern about the “dangerous” policies followed by the Centre.

The BRS Parliamentary Party expressed concern at the deteriorating situation in the country due to the policies of the Centre. KCR directed BRS MPs to oppose the anti-people policies of the Centre during the budget session.

The CM said the mistakes of the Centre should be brought to the attention of the nation during the Parliament session.

“The policies followed by the BJP government are blocking the country’s development. People are forced to give their hard earned savings to private companies as loans. The Centre is helping some private companies and writing off their loans worth billions. Public sector companies like LIC are forced to accept as collateral the overvalued shares of companies owned by big businessmen like Adani,” KCR said.

He said the country is observing the fact that some private companies are losing billions in market value every day and that the Centre is “privatising the country’s wealth.”

He suggested that BRS MPs should raise their voice in both the Houses of Parliament against the dangerous economic policies of the Centre while helps the private sector to make mega profits at the cost of the public.
