One Nampally Rajender belonging to Sanigaram village of Kamalapur mandal of Hanamkonda district used to work as a daily wage labourer.
He has a wife, two daughters, and a son and it was difficult to eke out a living with his earnings.
The Dalitha Bandhu announced by Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao came like a boon to the family. He immediately went to Haryana and bought two buffaloes and became a dairy owner. Since the quality of milk was good, the Karimagar dairy buys 20 litres of milk from him at the rate of Rs 70 per litre and he sells the other four litres to locals.
“My total earnings per day now is Rs 1,680. I joined a chit worth Rs four lakh now and my whole family is very happy. Thanks to our CM KCR for his kind help,” he said relating his success story.
One Kondapuram Nagesh of Vasalamarri was used to working as a wielder in Hyderabad near Charlapalli factory. As he was among the first to get Dalitha Bandhu money, he said he bought all the welding materials AC, DC, Gas Cutter, and other materials. Once he used to earn Rs 5 to 6,000 per month. Now he set up shop in his village and earning Rs 50,000 per month. “If our village had three-phase power, I can earn Rs One lakh as I am getting a lot of orders now,” he said.
As envisioned by Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, the Dalitha Bandhu is yielding expected results.
So far, a total of 38,012 beneficiaries were selected for the Dalitha Bandhu scheme of which 36,405 got the money directly into their account. But A total of 19,495 were grounded fully to date.
