"Centre Creates Communal Tension During Polls": KCR's everybody out Attack

Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao launched an all-out attack on the BJP that started with the festering issue of paddy procurement in the state.The BJP, he said, is only busy creating "communal tensions" during elections. "Your intelligent men are even now listening to what I am saying," he alleged. The BJP leaders were "issuing threats of cases being filed... They are threatening KCR? And they think KCR will be scared?'' he said.
"When there are elections, they bring Hindu-Muslim issue, Pakistan sentiment... During elections, you create communal tension, all your drama on the border, surgical strikes, people are seeing through this," he added.
The protest at Hyderabad's Indira Park, led by the Chief Minister, was attended by his cabinet ministers and other leaders of his ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi.
Accusing the Centre of not purchasing paddy and threatening to dump the grains in the BJP office, the Chief Minister said, "The BJP says grow paddy, but the Centre is not buying. They are playing political games. If you don't buy, we will come and dump paddy in the BJP office".
Last year, the Centre had procured 78 percent of crops produced during the monsoon. This year, the total  is 59 per cent. The state has produced 55.75 lakh metric tonnes of paddy, of which only 32.66 lakh metric tonnes have been procured. The Centre had said they would procure 40 lakh metric tonnes.
The state, however, wants them to take 90 per cent of the produce. Besides, procurement of 5 lakh metric tonnes of Rabi paddy is also pending.
He said about 50 days ago, he had requested Food minister Piyush Goyal to set the target for paddy procurement from the state. But there has been no response from the Centre, he alleged. He said he has also written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday on the issue.
"For 50 days they ignored our pleas. We have thrown away posts in the past during the Telangana struggle. We will take leadership in this," the Chief Minister said, addressing people at a protest site in Hyderabad.
"We started this battle because our farming community may suffer due to the Centre's policies... We say you change your attitude, come to the rescue of farmers, withdraw the autocratic farm laws and change the policy to install metres at agriculture pump sets. This battle is not going to end today," he added.
Highlighting that his party was criticised by the BJP over its recent dharnas on  paddy procurement  despite being in power, Mr Rao said PM Modi, as Gujarat Chief Minister, held a protest for 51 hours in 2006.
"A message is going out from this that pitiable circumstances of CMs, Ministers and MLAs having to sit on dharna prevail in this country," he said.
