Hyderabad: TRS NRI wing which has opened its units in 33 countries, is planning to spread its activities to nearly 100 countries across the world as part of its attempts to strengthen TRS base abroad and also provide necessary assistance to Telangana NRIs living in the respective countries.
Nizamabad MP and TRS NRI wing advisor K Kavitha unveiled the plans and urged the TRS NRI cells abroad to work as ambassadors of Telangana State across the world.
Inaugurating the eighth anniversary celebrations of TRS NRI Cell-London chapter at Telangana Bhavan on Saturday, Kavitha said TRS NRI coordinator Mahesh Bigala and other Telangana NRI activists were striving for promotion of the State in different countries. She recalled that several Telangana NRIs have contributed their might for the seperate Telangana movement and also started different organisations abroad to support the cause as well as emphasise on separate identity for Telangana people. “Despite being humiliated for their efforts, the Telangana NRIs continued their fight for the cause.
They also played vital role in bringing the TRS government back to power for second consecutive term,” she said.
The Nizamabad Parliament member stated that Telangana State was becoming a role model for other States. “Following introduction of Telangana’s industrial policy, many other States have emulated it. It is a proud moment for us as many State governments as well as the Central government are replicating our popular schemes. The State government is preparing a NRI policy which will be emulated by others,” she assured.
She pointed out that the State government had allocated Rs 100 crore fund for welfare of NRIs’ welfare and will strive to address problems being faced by Telangana NRIs in the Gulf countries as well as other countries.
MLC M Srinivas Reddy, Telangana Beverages Corporation Chairman Deviprasada Rao, TRS NRI Cell founder president Anil Kurmachalam, TRS NRI-UK unit president Ashok Doosari, NRI unit leaders from US, UK, New Zealand, Qatar and South Africa were present.
