Hyderabad, Aug 19: Refuting the charges levelled against the K Chandrasekhar Rao-led government by BJP working president J P Nadda, TRS senior leader K T Rama Rao on Monday dared him to prove it if he has the courage of conviction.

He also took potshots at Nadda, saying he had never heard his name.

"His name is J P Nadda. I never heard his name. But after listening to what he said, I understood that his name is not J P Nadda, but an adda (place of people) of blatant lies.

He says KCR is pushing the state into abasement. Mr Nadda is the adda of Telangana people. You can play your tricks in Karnataka. But you can't do that in Telangana. Telangana people are not innocents, Rama Rao, the Chief Minister's son, said.

Nadda had on Sunday alleged that Rao was focused only on himself and his family and that the TRS government did not implement the NDA government's 'Ayushman Bharat' health scheme, depriving the people of its benefits.

Referring to the Kaleshwaram irrigation project in Telangana, the former union minister had alleged that the TRS government escalated its cost.

Reacting to Nadda's corruption comments, Rao said the NDA government did not in any way support the world's biggest lift irrigation project undertaken by the Telangana Government.

"I ask Nadda one thing, you spoke as you liked yesterday.

You say there was corruption in government projects, but first crosscheck with your officials before you level such charges.

If you have any courage of conviction, come out with proof, " he said.

Telangana has not received any undue favours from the centre, he said.

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday termed as "historic" the cut in corporate tax rates and asserted that economic announcements made in the last few weeks show that his government is leaving no stone unturned to make India a better place to do business.

The announcements in the last few weeks clearly demonstrate that the government is leaving no stone unturned to make India a better place to do business, improve opportunities for all sections of society and increase prosperity to make India a USD 5 trillion economy, he said on Twitter

"The step to cut corporate tax is historic. It will give a great stimulus to #MakeInIndia, attract private investment from across the globe, improve competitiveness of our private sector, create more jobs and result in a win-win for 130 crore Indians," he said.

Battling a six-year low economic growth and a 45-year high unemployment rate, the government on Friday slashed corporate tax rates for companies by almost 10 per cent to 25.17 per cent to bring them at par with Asian rivals such as China and South Korea, as it looked to boost demand and investments.
