TRS working president and Minister KT Rama Rao on Sunday said Union Home Minister Amit Shah issued an unconstitutional threat by saying that paddy will be purchased in the State only if people vote BJP to power. “If needed, the State government will consider approaching the Supreme Court for justice,” he said.

“We will not bow down to such threats and blackmail politics. We will go to the Supreme Court if needed. The TRS government knows how to get parboiled rice disposed despite the union government’s refusal to our proposal,” he said, addressing mediapersons here.

The National Food Security Act 2013 passed by Parliament made it clear that “the obligation of the Central government is to procure food grains for the Central pool and allocate required quantities to the States.”

The TRS working president said while his party urged Amit Shah to speak out truth (nijam), the latter spoke more about ‘Nizam’. He wondered whether Amit Shah thinks and recalls more about the Nizam than his own family. He pointed out that the union Minister did not utter a word about

anything that was of value to the State.

On BJP State president Bandi Sanjay’s demand to extend Rythu Bandhu scheme to tenant farmers in the State, Rama Rao asked the former to explain why the Centre was not giving PM KISAN benefits to tenant farmers. He pointed out that it was the BJP government at the Centre which was copying the State government’s schemes like Rythu Bandhu which was implemented two years later as PM KISAN.

TRS working president and Minister KT Rama Rao challenged union Home Minister Amit Shah to dissolve Parliament and go for early polls nation-wide. “The TRS is ready for early elections to Parliament, but does not see any need for the same to the State Assembly,” he said.
Telangana under Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao, he said, was a growth model which should be implemented in other States. 

“While Chandrashekhar Rao will create awareness about the “Golden Telangana” model among people at the national level, the TRS will play a decisive role in national politics,” he added.
