Telangana Chief Minister Chandrasekhar Rao has said that he will not participate in the 7th Judicial Aayog meeting.
Telangana Chief Minister Chandrasekhar Rao has written to Prime Minister Modi that he will not participate in the 7th Neeti Aayog meeting to be held in Delhi tomorrow. In this he said:
A judicial commission meeting held without respect for state governments is unnecessary. The State Government has no mechanism to modify the Neeti Aayog schemes as required. There are various states in India. Schemes valid only for Delhi cannot be accepted by all states.
The purpose of forming the Justice Aayog is to build a strong nation through strong states. The views of the State Governments will be valued while the Planning Commission is in place. But there is no such dialogue in the Justice Aayog. Some high-ranking politicians use bulldozers. They kill people. They develop a religious majority of 80:20. This causes unrest in the country. It is noteworthy that the central government has not taken any measures despite criticism of this at the global level.
The central government is working against the federal government. State governments are not consulted even on taxation. It seems to me that this is not going to benefit 140 crore Indians.
Only strong states can make a strong India. Due to the above reasons, participation in the Justice Aayog meeting on 7th August will not bring any benefit. I am not going to participate in this meeting condemning the positions of the Central Government which belittles the State Governments without looking at them as equal to the Central Government.
CM Sri KCR has conveyed Prime Minister @NarendraModi Ji of his decision to stay away from the 7th Governing Council meeting of @NITIAayog as a mark of strong protest against present trend of Union Govt. to discriminate against the States and not treating them as equal partners. pic.twitter.com/V9cCC2Nu2L
