Hyderabad: Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) termed the 2013-14 Budget presented by Finance Minister Anam Ramanarayan Reddy on Monday as Chittoor budget. The Chief Minister mainly focused on his native district and ensured that it got a lion's share of funds, whether it was drinking water or a new JNTU college, said Etela Rajender, the TRS Floor Leader in the Assembly. In spite of our repeated pleas, the very serious fluoride problem in Nalgonda district was completely ignored. TRS had urged the government to allot at least Rs 100 crore but it fell on deaf ears, Rajender rued. He further stated that not a single penny was allocated for the proposed government medical college in Nizamabad. However, the Finance Minister ensured that Nellore medical college was given a reasonable budget of Rs 350 crore. Even BCs, who contribute half of the population were given just 4,000 crore, he said. Although farmers were resorting to suicides due to many problems, agriculture sector was given only 3.8 percent of share. If this was not enough, Government breached the rules of the House, and even deceived the public in the name of separate budget for agriculture.
