Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao will launch his bus yatra of districts after the conclusion of the budget session of the State Legislative Assembly. He will start his tour from Rajendranagar Assembly constituency.
The chief minister’s bus yatra means that the administration will be on wheels.
“I will start bus yatra after the Assembly session. I will accord sanction on the spot for major works like roads,” Rao said at a public meeting at Myladeverapalli in Rajendranagar mandal on Friday. Rao inducted TDP MLA Prakash Goud into the TRS by offering him his party kanduva.
Addressing a meeting later, Rao announced his programmes. “I am going to Mumbai on March 8 to sign pacts with the Maharashtra government on irrigation projects. After the budget session, my tour of districts by bus will commence,” he said. Rao assured that there would be no power cuts in Telangana in future. “The TRS always keeps its word. The irrigation projects will be completed on time. Every house will get potable water,” Rao said. He recalled that the social security pension, Asara, beneficiaries increased in Telangana state. “Earlier, Rangareddy district used to get Rs 7 crore for pensions. Now, the same district is getting Rs 35 crore.” Rao said welfare would be the top priority and get a major chunk in the state budget for 2016-17. He assured local farmers that the problems arising out of implementation of GO No.111 would be resolved soon.
Nominated Posts to Be Filled Soon
There is some good news to aspirants to nominated posts. The much-awaited filling of nominated posts might take place this month. The chief minister assured that all the nominated posts would be filled soon. Though the CM had announced that he would nominate persons to the posts during Dasara last year, it did not happen due to various reasons including elections to Legislative Council, Assembly by-elections and GHMC elections. Rao announced on Friday that nominated posts would be filled during the Assembly session.
