Revanth Calls TS Budget Pro-Capitalist
Hyderabad: Telangana TDP leader A Revanth Reddy described the budget presented by TS Finance Minister Etala Rajender as pro-capitalist. He deplored the attitude of the government towards the poorer sections of the society.
While a total amount of ₹ 4,300 crore is required for fee reimbursement only ₹1,900 crore were allocated. In case of waiver of farm loans, instead of waiving the loans at one go the government has been doing it in instalments. While 11,000 crore are needed for complete waiver, only 4000 crore were set apart.
Revanth Reddy and another TTDP MLA Sandra Venkata Veeraiah stood in hot sun while the presentation of the 2017-18 budget in the Assembly. Both of them were suspended by Speaker Madhusudana Chary for behaving in an objectionable manner during Governor’s address to the joint session of the legislatures.
