Karimnagar: Finance Minister T Harish Rao on Sunday assured the Rajaka (washermen) community that the government would sanction them loans from the BC corporation.
The State government, which was supplying up to 250 units of electricity to Rajakas free of cost, has allocated Rs 250 crore in the budget to take up various programmes for the upliftment of the community.
BJP leader, Eatala Rajender, who served the Huzurabad constituency for 18 years, has not allocated a single gunta land to Rajaka community.
Harish Rao along with BC Welfare and Civil Supplies Minister Gangula Kamalakar, MLC Basavaraju Saraiah and others laid foundation for Rajaka community hall in Huzurabad town on Sunday. Earlier, the Minister unveiled the statue of Telangana armed struggle leader Chakali Ilamma at hospital chowk in Huzurabad.
Speaking on the occasion, Harish Rao felt happy for celebrating Chakali Ilamma’s birth anniversary officially. Besides allocating three acres of land in Hyderabad, Rs 5 crore was also given to protect the self-respect of the Rajaka community.
The Chief Minister has introduced a number of developmental and welfare schemes to protect various caste occupations. Informing that Chandrashekhar Rao was doing everything for the welfare of BCs, he advised the people not to fall-fray to Rs 40 worth wall clocks, tickly packets being offered by BJP.
Rajender, who reached the present position only because of Chandrashekhar Rao, was talking big, he said and questioned what kind of benefit would be done to Huzurabad people if a BJP candidate was won in by-polls.
State government requested the union government led by BJP to provide reservations for BCs in legislature bodies and constitute a separate ministry for BCs. However, the central government was least bothered about the state government’s request.
Moreover, the union government was imposing a burden on the common public by increasing the prices of diesel, petrol, cooking gas and edible oil. People should decide whether they wanted to support BJP, which was imposing a burden on the public or TRS, which was extending all kinds of support.
Rajender should tell the public what benefit he would do to the people of Huzurabad. How people could get benefit by exercising votes to the BJP leader, who failed to construct a single double bedroom house as against 4,000 houses sanctioned to the constituency, the Minister questioned?
Why should voters give their votes to BJP, which was deceiving the people. BJP would benefit if Rajender was elected. However, people would benefit if a TRS candidate was elected.
Harish Rao assured to construct 5,000 double bedroom houses in Huzurabad after completion of by-elections.
