It is a well-known fact in the political circles that whatever KCR does, there is political selfishness behind it. Opposition parties have repeatedly criticized the idea of turning a revolution-based party into a full-fledged political party and for making several attempts to rule the state as the Nizam’s king without any opposition. Critics believe that KCR is currently roaming around the neighboring states to foray into national politics, planning to implement similar formulae there as well. Opposition parties say that not only themselves but also the people of the state are angry over KCR publicizing himself as the sole savior of the nation, and someone who can only work for the welfare of the country and no other.
We are seeing how many difficulties the farmer is facing in our state. We have a dire situation where farmers are desperately waiting for the state government to buy their grains. On one hand, KCR went on boasting that the center is unable to buy, and he will do it himself on behalf of the state government. But in reality, the number of the procurement centers set up is way too less and because of that, the farmers are already losing a lot of grains to untimely rains and weather conditions. Some farmers are simply selling their grains for lesser prices. What should the state government do in such situations? It should start procuring the grains on an immediate basis with no delays. Nothing of that sort is happening in the state, and the opposition parties are hugely criticizing the KCR government regarding that. On the other hand, people are also bashing KCR for thinking of reaching out and helping the farmers of other states while the situation in the home state is getting worse with time.
Earlier in 2021, Dharnas were held on the borders of Delhi against agricultural laws. There is nothing wrong with the respective state governments and the Center paying compensation to the deceased farmers. Opposition parties have said that the Telangana government giving money to Punjabi farmers is not the way to go. They believe that this is the drama being played by KCR as part of PK’s plan to project himself in national politics. If they are hoping to give so much money, “Why can’t the Kalwakuntla family, who earns a monthly salary of Rs 25 lakh, give their own money? What’s the point of people spending the hard-earned tax money of the people of Telangana somewhere else?” such are the questions raised.
The half of the month is already over and the employees weren’t paid their salaries yet. They take debts and clear them as soon as they get their salaries. This is how things are going on in the state. The day before yesterday we saw what kind of conflict took place between the center and state as the center decided not to lend any more money to the State Government. We have seen the state government urging the center to not cause problems with the welfare schemes. Opposition parties are questioning whether it is correct for KCR to go there to take care of the farmers in the state of Punjab with so many problems pending in the state.
