Karimnagar: BC Welfare and Civil Supplies Minister Gangula Kamalakar said that a ‘jatara’ (carnival) of welfare schemes has been continuing in the State as the Telangana government has introduced several schemes for the welfare of all sections of the society.
The Minister distributed the cheques of Kalyana Lakshmi and Shaadi Mubaarak cheques to beneficiaries at a programme held in the Collectorate auditorium here on Wednesday. Rs 1.4 crore worth cheques were distributed to 103 beneficiaries from Karimnagar Urban, Kothapalli and Karimnagar Rural mandals.
He said no State in the country has done such development since the Independence, which is being done in Telangana only. It was materialised only because of the visionary thinking of Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao.
