New Delhi, November 18Telangana Chief Minister Chandrasekhar Rao seems more angry with the Center and the BJP. On Thursday, he launched a scathing attack on the BJP. He said that BJP was engaged in creating communal tension during the elections. His intelligence agents are still listening to me. “BJP leaders are threatening to file a case against me. Do they think KCR will be scared?”


CM KCR took part in a demonstration at Indira Park, Hyderabad on Thursday. Addressing the people there, he said that the BJP and the Union government were raising the Hindu-Muslim issue as the elections approached. Apart from this, the whole drama against Pakistan, surgical strike etc. starts. On paddy procurement, on the other hand, he said that BJP says grow paddy but Center is not procuring it. They are playing a political game. If the procurement does not start, his party workers will soon stage a dharna in front of the BJP office.

According to the data, the Center had procured 78 per cent of the crops grown during the monsoon last year. This year the figure is 59 per cent. As far as Telangana is concerned, the state produced 55.75 metric tonnes, of which only 32.66 metric tonnes were procured. The Center had promised to procure 40 lakh metric tonnes. However, the state wants them to get 90 per cent share of the product. Besides, procurement of 5 lakh metric tonnes of rake is also pending.
