Announcement Event for Chief Minister Dalit Empowerment Scheme
Telangana CM Dalit Empowerment Scheme has been announced by CM KCR at a public meeting which was organised as part of CM’s visit to Nalgonda district. He laid foundation stone for 13 various lift irrigation schemes on Krishna river at a cost of nearly Rs. 3,000 crore. KCR even used the occasion to kickstart the campaign of the Telangana Rashtra Samithi for the ensuing by-election to Nagarjunasagar assembly seat.
The by-election, necessitated due to the death of sitting TRS legislator Nomula Narasimhaiah due to post-Covid-19 complications in December, has become a matter of prestige for the TRS. The political party had faced a debacle in the by-elections to Dubbak assembly seat, followed by Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation elections.
The TRS chief called upon the people of Nagarjunasagar constituency not to get carried away by the propaganda of the Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party but support the party which had been addressing the needs of every section of the society. If people think what CM is saying is true, that it would be visible that the opposition parties lose their deposits.
KCR Attacks on Opposition Political Parties
CM KCR pointed out that it was the TRS government which had driven away fluorosis from the villages of Nalgonda by providing safe drinking water through Mission Bhagiratha scheme. He mentioned that Congress governments in the past had never thought of implementing a scheme like Rythu Bandhu that provides Rs. 10,000 per acre per year to each farmer. Yet, the Congress leaders are shamelessly criticising the TRS government.
The TRS chief also promised to complete all the lift irrigation schemes within a year. KCR even mentioned that “If we can’t fulfil our promise, we won’t ask for votes from you in the next elections. We have that credibility of not going back on what we promised in the past”.
He also warned the opposition parties against creating hurdles in the meetings of the TRS. “The Congress and the BJP, which were responsible for the suicides of farmers in the past, have no moral right to disturb our meetings. Ours is a democratically elected people’s government, not the one nominated by Delhi”.
