Nothing Great About Making India $5 Trillion Economy: Telangana CM


Hyderabad: Hitting out at the BJP-led Central administration, Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao today said that there was “nothing great” about transforming India into a $5 trillion economy by the year 2025. The Telangana Rashtra Samithi chief also said that the Prime Minister or Finance Minister was not required for the country to attain this milestone.

“It is the magic of money compounding. Any financer can tell that. There is nothing great about making Indian economy worth USD 5 trillion by 2025. What is extra effort you are putting in? Nothing,” he said. The CM addressed a media conference at the Pragati Bhavan today.

KCR accused the BJP-led administration of indulging in “false propaganda”, wondering what “extra” steps the Centre was taking. “If you’ve innovative skills, please do something like China and Singapore. That is something great, not USD 5 trillion economy,” he added.

In recent days, the TRS chief has repeatedly hit out at the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Earlier this week, Rao had said that the NDA government would be “chased away” from power if it failed to extend support for the state’s development, noting that he was ready to play a role in national politics to break “Delhi Fort”.

“You don’t give us national project, you don’t give us medical college…If you don’t support us, no problem. We will chase you away from power and bring in a government that will help us,” he said during a public meeting in Jangaon district’s Yashwantpur area.

“Be careful Narendra Modi. Nobody is sacred of your threats,” he had added. (TimesNowNews)
