TRS claims credit for easing note ban curbs
Hyderabad: TRS leader Palla Rajeshwar Reddy has stated that the suggestions made by Telangana Government to the Centre in the wake of demonetization proved handy as they gave a reprieve to the people across the country.
Addressing a press conference at TRS Legislature party office here, on Monday, he claimed that the Centre had relaxed note ban norms for some time at the behest of the youngest state. He recalled Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao’s appeal to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to relax note ban for farmers, agriculture markets, small businesses and petrol bunks and to increase loan amount for the farmers.
He refuted opposition comments that the government is not discussing financial issues in the Assembly. The opposition is trying to talk something on scrapping notes causing problem to the people across the nation. The government will hold the Assembly session in December last week, he said.
Rajeshwar Reddy charged the Congress and Telugu Desam with blaming the TRS government for political gain. There is no content in the allegations being leveled by the opposition parties, he said. Unlike the previous united state, the Telangana Government passed every bill introduced in the Assembly, he said and ridiculed the opposition that it had run away from the House while the government was explaining the schemes through power point presentation. The Assembly session to be held in December will focus on problems of people and not take up issues related to corruption. -NSS
