Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman reprimanded a collector unable to provide an answer.


Telangana Minister KT Rama Rao has expressed complete shock at Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman scolding a district collector for not being able to provide him with an answer on the share of rice provided by the Center and state in fair price stores.

Mr. Rama Rao, popularly known as KTR, said such conduct by people in high office will only “demoralize hard-working AIS officers”.

Mr Rama Rao, in a tweet on Friday evening, said: “I am appalled at the unruly conduct of FM @nsitharaman today with the District Magistrate/Collector of Kamareddy”.

“These political histrionics on the street will only demoralize the hardworking AIS officers,” he added.

“My compliments to @Collector_KMR Jitesh V Patil, IAS for dignified conduct,” he tweeted.

While inspecting a PDS ration store in Birkoor, the Union Minister had also asked Jitesh Patil why Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s picture was missing.

Mrs. Sitharaman said that since March-April 2020, the Center has been providing free rice at the price of Rs 30-Rs 35 without the state government and beneficiaries having to contribute anything.

Ms Sitharaman was in the state to participate in various programs in the parliamentary constituency of Zaheerabad under the BJP’s ‘Lok Sabha PravasYojana’.
