The Speaker inaugurated 40 double bedroom houses, newly constructed school building, Rythu Vedika and Ramalayam temple function hall apart from laying foundation stone for other government buildings here. Speaking on the occasion, he said the process of constructing 2BHK houses would be carried out in a phased manner.

The State government was constructing 2BHKs to help the homeless people especially women across the State. As many as 10,000 double bedroom houses were sanctioned for the Banswada Assembly constituency, he said adding that Telangana was the only State that was giving Rs 2,000 monthly fiscal aid to each beneficiary as Aasara pension.

The State government was spending Rs 12,000 crore for giving Aasara pensions and the Mission Bhagiratha scheme was launched to supply potable water at doorstep in order to avoid inconvenience to women in drawing drinking water from far off places in villages, he said.

The Telangana government is providing Rythu Bandhu and Rythu Bima to the farmers across the State in addition to 24-hour power supply to the agriculture sector, apart from financial assistance to the newly married bride, Pocharam said.

He said that no State in the country including neighbouring Karnataka and Maharashtra were implementing such schemes, Srinivas Reddy said, adding that the government was supplying irrigation for two crops a year and Godavari water was being brought to the Nizam Sagar project through the Kaleshwaram Lift Irrigation Scheme.

Srinivas Reddy said that the plans have been chalked out to construct function halls at every mandal headquarters at a cost of Rs.30 lakh each. About 40 2BHK houses have been constructed at a cost of over Rs 2.16 crore while Rythu Vedika and school building at a cost of Rs 22 lakh and Rs 48 lakh respectively, whereas the Ramalayam function hall was constructed at a cost of Rs.30 lakh, he added.
