While addressing the assembly on Thursday, KCR said Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Stalin has written a letter to him expressing concern over the attitude of the central government with the states.
"The central government has taken away the taxes also in the name of GST. Now they want to take the petrol and diesel prices also into GST ambit. Not only us, but even the BJP ruling states have also opposed that," said KCR.
"The Finance Minister recently held a meeting at Lucknow. Uttar Pradesh Finance Minister opposed the proposal of bringing petrol and diesel prices into the GST ambit. There is no difference between both these parties (BJP and Congress) in taking away the rights of the states and in preventing the states from working," he added.
KCR further alleged that both Congress and BJP have been looting in the name of different schemes.
"It was Jawahar Rojgar Yojna in Congress rule and it is Deen Dayal Yojna in BJP rule. Only names changed, but no difference in policy," said KCR.
"We all should hold talks on such controversies. If needed, we will fight with the centre for the rights of the state," he added. (ANI)
