Hyderabad: Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao reiterated that the State government was committed to implement the Dalit Bandhu scheme on full scale mode and would spend Rs 20,000 crore by next year. He assured that the scheme will be implemented on saturation basis in Huzurabad Assembly constituency where it was launched on a pilot basis during the current financial year, along with four mandals in four constituencies as well as 100 Dalit families each in all the constituencies.

The Chief Minister told mediapersons at Pragathi Bhavan that he would not lie to people of the State with regards to government jobs as well. While 1.35 lakh government jobs were filled in various government departments, another 60,000-70,000 jobs also will be filled shortly. He blamed the Centre for delaying the approvals to the new zonal system which in turn delayed the job notifications. He is scheduled to chair a meeting with the employees associations in a couple of weeks, following which fresh job notifications as well as annual job calender, will be released.

Chandrashekhar Rao also trashed BJP State president Bandi Sanjay’s statements, wherein the latter said that the Centre had built highways and railway tracks in Telangana. “What do you mean you gave national highways and railway tracks? Are you spending it from your pockets? The national treasury has money collected under various taxes and the States have equal right in the tax collections. Otherwise give us our tax money, so that, we build it as per our priorities. Those things have to be done automatically,” KCR pointed out.

The Chief Minister appealed farmers not to cultivate paddy during Yasangi (Rabi) season unless they have pre-agreements with seed companies, millers or traders. He urged them not to fall for the BJP’s propaganda and stay away from paddy cultivation. They were suggested to take up cultivation of alternative crops including cotton. He assured all support to farmers who are cultivating alternative crops.

Meanwhile, Chandrashekhar Rao expressed his dissatisfaction over the absence of people from Telangana among the Padma award receiptients and stated that the Union government was not honouring people of Telangana State with the prestigious awards and that it was ignoring them. He stated that the Centre had little role in getting UNESCO recognition for the Ramappa temple.

Responding to questions, the Chief Minister said there would be a huge demand for electric vehicles in the country over the next five-six years and revealed that he too owns an electric vehicle. However, he slammed the Centre for not utilising 50 per cent of its installed capacity of power stations. He also alleged that the Union government had failed to use even utilise 35,000 tmc of total 65,000 tmc water for providing drinking water and irrigation water to the needy. He emphasised the need for new economic policy and reforms in the country.
