"What right do the BJP and Narendra Modi ji have to seek votes here when we have not been given even a half paisa extra except our share of taxes as per Constitution. BJP leaders should say," Rama Rao said, addressing a TRS preparatory meeting for the coming Lok Sabha elections.
TRS should get 16 Lok Sabha seats and its ally AIMIM should retain the Hyderabad Lok Sabha constituency to ensure that Telangana plays a crucial role post the Lok Sabha polls and the state gets substantial funds and development projects, he said.
The total number of Lok Sabha constituencies in Telangana is 17.
The TRS working president had earlier said neither NDA nor UPA was in a position to form the government at the centre after the Lok Sabha elections.
He found fault with Rama Rao's comments that the popularity graph of Modi was on the wane.
