25,000 jobs by various Government departments from July: KCR

Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao on the occasion of first anniversary of Telangana State formation on Tuesday announced creation of 25,000 jobs by various Government departments from July. The unemployed youth had a lot to cheer from the launch of the official celebrations of the Telangana Formation Day at the Parade Grounds in Secunderabad.

The Government will issue orders to regularise the services of contract staff this month and the process will be completed between July and December, Mr. Rao said after unfurling the Tricolour and reviewing the parade by police forces. An impressive roll out of floats depicting various programmes of the State Government added colour to the celebrations.

Mr. Rao said that the recruitment process will be put in motion this month and notifications issued in July. The Government will also launch its prestigious programme of constructing two-bed room houses for poor with a budget of Rs. 2,500 crore this year. About 50,000 houses will be constructed with a unit cost of Rs.5.04 lakh.

The foundation stone for the Palamuru Lift Irrigation scheme with an outlay of Rs. 35,000 crore will be laid shortly. Similarly, the Pranahita – Chevella project at a cost of Rs. 30,000 crore will take shape with the construction of a barrage at Kaleswaram.

Mr. Rao also announced implementation of several other measures, including the election promise of the TRS to extend 12 per cent reservation to the Scheduled Tribes. The quota will be implemented as soon as the committee headed by retired IAS officer S. Chellappa submitted its report.

The State owned Road Transport Corporation will be strengthened, if needed, with a government grant.

Mr. Rao began his brief speech with success of the Government in power supply. The Government initially aimed at earning self reliance in the sector, but will draw up strategies for surplus and supply to other States. He promised 24-hour supply to all categories of power consumers by the end of 2018. The Government defied expectations that separate Telangana will face blackout, he added.
