Kamalakar said the State government was implementing Kalyana Lakshmi and Shaadi Mubarak schemes to ring happiness in the lives of the poor
Karimnagar: BC Welfare and Civil Supplies Minister Gangula Kamalakar on Tuesday said Kalyana Lakshmi and Shaadi Mubarak schemes were a boon to the poorer sections in society.
Speaking after distributing Kalyana Lakshmi and Shaadi Mubarak cheques to beneficiaries at the District Collectorate here, Kamalakar said the State government was implementing Kalyana Lakshmi and Shaadi Mubarak schemes to ring happiness in the lives of the poor. “No other state in the country is implementing such schemes. Not only these, double bedroom, Aasara pensions and other schemes were also being implemented for women’s empowerment,” he said.
Despite financial troubles developed due to corona outbreak, all welfare schemes have been continued in the state. Aasara Pensions have been implemented to help poor, daily wage labourers, agriculture labourers, beedi workers and single women in rural areas.
Earlier, farmers used to face severe hardships due to lack of power supply. However, the problem has been solved with the supply of 24 hours power to the agriculture sector after the formation of Telangana State. The Telangana government was purchasing paddy crop from farmers despite the Covid pandemic in the State.
The Minister distributed Rs 2.40 crore worth of Kalyana Lakshmi and Shaadi Mubarak cheques to 242 beneficiaries and promised to hand over the cheques to the remaining 622 beneficiaries in the district very soon.
