Rajanna-Sircilla: IT and Industries Minister KT Rama Rao said the trend of the slogan — Saru..Karu..Sarkaru — continued to gather momentum in the State.
Stating that a positive atmosphere was prevailing in favour of the TRS in the State, he said people had decided to re-elect K Chandrashekhar Rao as the Chief Minister by casting their votes for the ‘car’.
Rama Rao was addressing people during a roadshow in Vemulawada in support of local TRS candidate Ch Ramesh Babu. The Minister said unable to face a single person, all political parties had suddenly decided to unite. Both the Congress and the TDP, which used to fight like snake and mongoose, had formed an alliance to defeat Chandrashekhar Rao. While AICC president Rahul Gandhi allocated seats to Mahakutami candidates, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu arranged money to be distributed to voters. Talking about Vemulawada Rajarajeshwara Swamy temple, he said a wrong propaganda was spread against the shrine earlier stating that leaders who visit the temple would lose their posts. The State government sanctioned Rs 400 crore for its development. Promising to bring train services to the temple town, he assured people to do justice to Mid Manair land oustees.
Rama Rao appealed to people to teach a lesson to local leaders and asked party workers to take all possible measures to motivate voters to exercise their vote to the TRS.
Besides 24-hour power supply to the agricultural sector, a number of other schemes had been introduced for the welfare of farmers by the State government, he said. In the entire country, Telangana was the only State which was providing Rs 8,000 financial assistance to farmers under Rythu Bandhu and Rs 5 lakh insurance under Rythu Bhima. The amount under Rythu Bandhu would be enhanced to Rs 10,000 after coming to power.
The past governments used to give so meagre amount as pension that the elderly could not even buy enough medicines. However, the TRS government had increased it to Rs 1,000. It would again increase the amount to Rs 2,016 once voted to power. Besides this, the pension amount would be increased to Rs 3,016 to the physically challenged, and the jobless youth would get an allowance of Rs 3,016 every month, he said.
