On Monday, K T Rama Rao, the working president of the TRS, objected to Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s description of the Telangana government as “anti-farmer” and said that the state administration’s “Rythu Bandhu” investment assistance program is a model even for the Center.

Rama Rao inquired who had shown regret to the country’s farmers after incurring their fury over the since-repealed agricultural regulations and losing over 700 priceless lives.

“The joke of the century is when Amit Shah Ji labels Hon’ble CM KCR Garu as “Anti-Farmer.” Who stole KCR’s idea for “Rythu Bandhu” and turned it into PM-Kisan? “Rama Rao, the son of K Chandrasekhar Rao, the chief minister, tweeted.

Rama Rao said that the Gujarat BJP administration had previously rejected the Fasal Bima Yojana, in response to Shah’s criticism of the TRS government for declining participation in the program.

At a public gathering on Sunday in Munugode, Mr. Shah said that the Chandrasekhar Rao administration was “anti-farmer.” He had forced Telangana into a debt trap despite receiving more than “Rs 2 lakh crore in support” from the Central government.

The former Congress lawmaker from Munugode, K. Rajgopal Reddy, joined the BJP at the event when Mr. Shah announced the start of the Telangana existing government’s downfall.
