Shock on Same Day of Support
On the very same day of the TRS MPs supported NDA's candidate Harivansh Narayan in the Deputy Chairman election of Rajya Sabha, the Pink party received a rude shock from the Lotus party. BJP-led Union Government has ruled out of granting National Project Status to Telangana's Kaleshwaram Lift Irrigation project.
Responding to the query of TRS MP Vinod, Union Irrgation Minister Nitin Gadkari stated that Polavaram Irrigation Project would be the last National irrgation project in the country and hereafter there won't be any such concession to irrgation projects.
Even as KCR and TRS have been repeatedly requesting for National Status to Kaleshwaram, Gadkari's statement in the house has poured cold water on all the hopes of the Telangana.
Soon after Gadkari's statement in Lok Sabha, TRS MPs rose from their seats and tried to protest but Speaker Sumitra Mahajan has moved onto the other question. All this happened on the same day when TRS has supported NDA in the Rajya Sabha.
