Huzurabad: Finance Minister T Harish Rao on Sunday said the State government will issue notification soon for recruitment to fill 60,000 to 70,000 vacancies in various departments. So far, the State government has recruited 1.30 lakh people after State formation and has decided to fill all the vacancies in the coming days, the Minister said.
“While the TRS government is providing employment to jobless youth by filling vacancies, the BJP government at the Centre is scrapping government jobs by privatising Public Sector Undertakings. While 50,000 jobs in BSNL were abolished, the Railways has about four lakh vacancies. Instead of filling vacancies, the Union government is planning to sell Railways and LIC,” Harish Rao said, adadressing a campaign meeting in Machanapalli of Jammikunta mandal.
Slamming BJP leaders for trying to misguide the people stating that Centre’s had a share in the implementation of welfare schemes in Telangana State, he said it this was true, then why were the scheme not implemented in other State.
“BJP is spreading falsehood that TRS was ready to distribute Rs 30,000 to Rs 50,000 to voters to win the by-election. The idea behind spreading such baseless rumours is to provoke people into thinking that TRS leaders themselves have taken the money instead of distributing it among the voters,” the Minister said, and explained the the pros and cons of a TRS victory or a BJP win.
All farm loans along with interests would be waived, the eligible age to avail old age pension age would be brought down to 57 years, 5,000 double bedroom houses would be constructed in Huzurabad and people having their own house sites would be sanctioned Rs 5 lakh to construct houses if TRS aspirant Gellu Srinivas Yadav was elected, Harish Rao said, observing that if BJP candidate Eatala Rajender wins, diesel price would touch Rs 150, petrol Rs 200 and cooking gas Rs 1,200 within two months. “So, people should decide which party they want to cast their votes for,” he said.
Stating that Rajender did not resign from the State Assembly to get a medical college sanctioned for Huzurabad or to achieve district status for Huzurabad, he said the resignation was purely for his selfish gains. “Rajender, who constructed a huge medical college in Hyderabad, should have established it in Jammikunta if he has love and affection for the local people,” he said.
TRS party, which was known for its integrity, has fulfilled all promises made to the people during the time of earlier elections. For instance, the pension amount has been enhanced to Rs 2,016 from Rs 200, Rythu Bandhu to Rs 5,000 from Rs 4,000 and Kalyanalaxmi amount increased to Rs 1 lakh from Rs 50,000.
Telangana was the only state, which was providing 24 hours current to the agriculture sector. Besides doing free deliveries, Rs 12,000 amount is being provided to lactation women under KCR kit.
Earlier, farmers used to be scared to sow crops in the Yasangi season due to lack of water facility. However, the water problem was solved with the construction of Kaleshwaram project. Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao completed the project within a span of three years.
Besides Rs 10,000 per acre land under Rythu Bandhu, Rythu Bima is also being provided to the kin of the deceased farmers. Besides supplying seeds and fertilizer, crops are also being procured by providing a minimum support price.
Despite Covid pandemic, Chandrashekar Rao provided Rythu Bandhu to farmers by stalling the salaries of Ministers, MLAs, employees and teachers.
While Telangana government was extending all kinds of support to farmers, the union government was contemplating to fix meters to agriculture pump sets. However, Chief Minister made it clear that there was no question of fixing meters in Telangana.
Rajender, who criticized the BJP government for bringing anti-farmers laws six months ago, has joined the same party.
Though TRS leaders were putting their priority list of works before the public if their candidate was elected in the by-polls, BJP leader was not speaking out openly about his priorities.
