Hyderabad: Finance Minister T Harish Rao today condemned the comments of Union Minister Piyush Goyal on the state Ministers and MPs. He demanded that Piyush Goyal should apologize to the farmers of the state.

Harish Rao told media persons that on behalf of the 70 lakh farmers our team of six Ministers and MPs went to Delhi only to face insulting remarks by the Union Ministers, he expressed concern. Where the Centre or the Ministers has the right to insult our farmers and Ministers, he asked.

He attributed the failure of the state BJP leaders is a conspiracy against the farmers and the government. Always they want to dethrone the TRS Government instead of addressing the pending rice and paddy issues, he rebuked.

We urged the Centre to increase godowns’ capacity and give powers to states to export and import grains to address the same, he said. However the Union Ministers misguiding the parliament through falsehood, he charged.

The TRS Government priority is to protect the interests of the farmers while the BJP priority is only politics, he alleged.

The Centre is trying to play politics at the cost of the farmers of the state. He accused the BJP led Government in the Centre of indulging in cheating the farmers. When our team tried to meet him the minister made ridiculous comments that the state ministers unnecessarily came to Delhi on the paddy row. How can the union ministers make such irresponsible comments, the minister questioned.

We gave Rs 14500 cr so far towards rythu bandhu, besides giving 24 hour free power which leads to a golden harvest and the Centre is playing games without increasing godowns’ capacity and picking up stocks, Harish Rao fumed.

The team of ministers and MPs went to Delhi to seek clarity on the paddy and rice stocks he said. However the union ministers Piyush Goyal and G Kishan Reddy were talking in an insulting manner. Our priority is farmers’ interests and safety while the BJP priority is only politics, he alleged.

The Ministers hit out that the Centre was resorting to threatening our farmers and state government. He objected that Union Home Minister Amit Shah instructed the State BJP team leaders to fight against the corruption and file cases on the TRS Government.

Such remarks by the union Home Minister are unwelcoming and show only its interest in false politics, he said. We produce huge quantities of paddy, rice and parboiled rice here for more irrigation and farming activities with the support of the state government.

However the Centre talks in an irresponsible manner which is not correct. The BJP leaders failed to ask the union government to take state paddy and rice which were lying at godowns.
