Amidst hectic schedule, Telangana Rashtra Samithi’s (TRS) Working President and MA&UD Minister KT Rama Rao visited Fluorosis victim Amsala Swamy’s home in Shivannagudem, Mariguda Mandal, Nalgonda, on Thursday.
Mr Swamy was overwhelmed with the Minister’s visit as he did not expect it. The TRS Working President sat beside Mr Swamy, asked about his well being, and had lunch with him.
Mr Swamy was the same person who was placed on the table before the then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee in 1998 to explain the gravity of the fluorosis problem in Nalgonda. Multiple parties formed the government but his life did not change.
KTR came to Mr Swamy’s rescue by allocating Rs 5.4 lakh through government for construction of a double bed room home. Thereafter, the Minister KTR in his personal capacity extended help in completing pending works of the home. Not stopping at that, the TRS Working President has also arranged a saloon for Mr Swamy which serves as a livelihood.
On Thursday, the minister spoke to Mr Swamy at length, had rice, daal, talked to his parents and inquired about their wellbeing. The party’s Working President KTR said that any amount of help extended to Mr Swamy is not enough and assured to look after his needs in the future too.
An overwhelmed Mr Swamy said that the Minister KTR’s visit is a dream come true. It was several months ago that Mr Swamy invited the TRS Working President to visit his newly built home. He recalled the help extended by the Minister – construction of home, arranged a saloon.
The Minister tweeted “In the much maligned field of politics, there are few occasions when the heart is happy. Swamy, a fluorosis victim, invited me for lunch. Was happy that a Dignity House & Livelihood has been provided to his family. More importantly, fluorosis is gone now thanks to Mission Bhagiratha”
