Hyderabad (Telangana) (India), August 6: Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao said on Saturday that the central government has turned a Nelsons eye to the southern state, blaming the Centre for alleged failure in cooperative federalism and failure of NITI Aayog.Chief Minister KCR said today, in a press conference in Delhi, that I am canceling tomorrow's NITI Aayog meeting because the central government and the NITI Aayog administration are effectively establishing a repressive regime and imposing policies that are unsuitable to the states.The GST on handloom products, milk, and crematorium, he said, should be phased out.Because the beedi industry is on the verge of closing, poor beedi workers are harmed.

The government has the right to provide alternative employment to them, but instead, they are increasing GST by 28 percent on beedi industry, according to Rao.People from all walks of life are dissatisfied with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), according to Telangana's CM.People are dissatisfied with their jobs.Farmers are unimpressed.

Inflation is at a all-time peak.The unemployment rate has increased to 8.1%.He said that the formation of NITI Aayog had sparked this reaction but that it wasn't expected.Further, the KCR said, It was not my intention to make it a political issue.

The central government's recommendations from NITI Aayog aren't in question, as I can't see them.He said NITI Aayog strongly encouraged to help very promising initiatives undertaken by Telangana, such as Mission Bhagiratha and Mission Kakatiya.The Aayog clearly recommended sanctioning Rs 24,000 crore for both projects, but the Centre could not be bothered to honour the NITI Aayog's recommendations, according to the KCR.According to the Telangana CM, the government of India has shown Nelsons eye on Sunday's NITI Aayog meeting.
