Stating that the BJP leaders can not dispute the claims of the Chief Minister since the facts speak for themselves, Harish Rao said that everyone has to concede that the state government's claims were true and what Amit Shah spoke was false. "It is the right of the Telangana government to get not just Rs 1 lakh crore but Rs 10 lakh crore", he said. The entire state is discussing it and the people of Telangana have welcomed it, he said.
"Why can't Amit Shah say our government is giving Rs one lakh crore".
Yesterday, questioning the veracity of the figures provided by the BJP national president on the funds given to Telangana, Rao reeled out statistics on the amounts for various schemes the state had received from the NDA government and demanded a apology from Shah.
Rao said his latest survey showed that BJP will not win a single assembly seat as against "five seats won as a fluke in 2014 elections".
Rao also challenged Shah to prove his words, adding that he will not tolerate anyone who would "harm" Telangana's interests.
