Hyderabad: Union Minister of State for Labour Bandaru Dattatreya on Thursday suggested to the Telangana government to send timely proposals and spend money transparently for speedy approval from the Centre.
Addressing a press conference here, Bandaru Dattatreya hailed the Union budget presented by Arun Jaitley, terming that it was a rural, farmer welfare and development-oriented budget. “After many years, such a farmer-friendly budget has been presented giving importance to agriculture,” said Dattatreya.
He suggested the Telangana government to maintain transparency while spending for various schemes, paving way for speedy development of Telangana. He said that the Centre would approve all proposals of Telangana if the government here sent them in time.
Listing out the allocations by the Centre for various schemes, Dattatraya said the budget had focused on development of villages. He said the Pradhan Mantri Grameen Sadak Yojna was a very important programme by the government.
The Centre would give importance to the proposals of Telangana government irrespective of any length of road stretches in the scheme. He said the main agenda of Modi government was development, development and development.
“Opposition is trying to stop us by going with a special agenda. We are not concerned about this as the development is going to be faster. The main target of Narendra Modi is to remove poverty,” said Dattatreya.
Dattatraya refused to make any comment on the UoH incident stating, “I will not talk on any other issue. My programme is development, development, development. We don’t want to divert our attention. If anybody wants to divert our attention, we will go in our own direction.
We are answerable to the people for the mandate they gave us in 2014. Some people don’t digest the mandate given by the people of the country.” He said whatever he had to say had been reported in newspapers and added that the matter was sub judice and there was no question of debate on that.
He said the Central Ministers would take part in ‘Gram Uday se Bharat Uday Tak' programme proposed to be held between April 14 and April 24. The programme would start on the birth anniversary of Baba Saheb Bheem Rao Ambedkar on April 14.
He said Union Ministers, State Ministers, MPs, MLAs and Sarpanchs would be made part of this programme. The elected representatives would interact with farmers on April 24, the Panchayat Raj day, he said.
