The budget presented by the state government was termed useless and misleading by the TDP Legislative Party. It demanded the entire poll promises to be included made by TRS. Exception to the downsizing of martyrs’ list from 1,200 to 459 was strong. The leader of the party Errabelli Dayakar Rao wanted explanation about the circumstances to downsize the list of martys.
In the previous assembly session the CM and the assembly speaker said that around 800 people have sacrificed their lives for the formation of the new state. They wanted to know as to why the number was reduced in spite of the clear picture. Rao also added saying there was no mention of incentives like land or government jobs to family members of martyrs in the speech about budget.
Party MLA Revanth Reddy commented saying that the budget by the state goverment was aimed for the benefit of CM’s son KTR and nephew Harish Rao. Reddy claimed that they would force the promises to be implemented during the budget session itself.
