“The YSRCP leaders are trying to use the Muslim minorities as vote banks, and at the same time, they ignored their welfare. A raw deal was meted to the minorities in the budget allocation for their welfare,” he flayed.
He reiterated that the TDP is committed to the welfare of Muslim minorities. He recalled that many welfare programmes were implemented for the Muslims during the TDP rule, stating that loans on 50% subsidy were extended to them.
