Khammam: Minister for Transport Puvvada Ajay Kumar on Tuesday said Rythu Bandhu, KCR kits and now Telangana Dalit Bandhu were great schemes conceived by Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao to help the poorer sections.
The Minister was speaking after distributing Kalyana Lakshmi, Shadi Mubarak and CM Relief Fund cheques worth Rs 1.61 crore to the beneficiaries here. He distributed Kalyana Laskmi and Shadi Mubarak cheques worth Rs 1.32 crores to 132 beneficiaries from Khammam city and Raghunathapalem mandals.
Similarly, Ajay Kumar handed over Chief Minister’s Relief Fund cheques worth Rs 29.15 lakh to around 73 beneficiaries. He informed that so far 1732 CMRF cheques worth Rs 7.40 crores have been handed over to the beneficiaries in Khammam Assembly constituency.
Despite financial constraints caused by the Covid-19 crisis no welfare programme in the State was stopped. The Chief Minister was not only creating wealth but distributing the same to the people from different sections of the society. But some opposition party leaders were not able to digest the distribution of financial assistance to the poorer sections, the minister said.
Ajay Kumar strongly condemned an opposition party leader’s comments deriding Rythu Bandhu Scheme and said the leader’s remarks indicate his ‘broke mindset’. The Chief Minister was aspiring to alleviate poverty among suppressed and weaker sections, he noted.
The political parties which ruled the State in the past had never cared for the poorer sections but were making mindless comments against the welfare schemes being implemented by the TRS government, Ajay Kumar complained.
MLC, B Lakshminarayana, SUDA Chairman, Bachu Vijay Kumar, Mayor P Neeraj, deputy Mayor, Shaik Fatima Johara, District Library Chairman MA Qamar and others were present.
