- Promises compulsory free education - 12% reservation for Muslims and Lambadas - Says Eetela would get a top post
Julapalli/Jammikunta : Telangana Rashtra Samiti supremo K Chandrasekhar Rao called on the people of Telangana region to reject the Andhra-dominated parties, as they were not needed here. Addressing a meeting where a sizable number of Congress workers joined the TRS in Julapalli on Thursday, he said 57-year-old misery of the Telangana people could not be undone by just recounting it.
Chandrasekhar Rao devoted major part of his speech for announcing the welfare schemes the TRS would implement after achieving separate statehood. He expressed confidence that there would be a coalition government at the centre and the TRS would come to power in Telangana state after the next general elections. He also predicted that the sitting MLA from the constituency, Eetela Rajender would occupy higher position in future.
The TRS chief said in the Telangana state, compulsory free education would be introduced. Every poor family would get a house built at a cost of Rs. 2 lakh. Twelve per cent reservations would be provided to the Muslims and Lambadas among the Girijans in education and employment. Old age pension would be enhanced to Rs. 1000 and physically challenged persons' pension would be hiked to Rs. 1500. The farmers loans up to Rs. 2 lakh would be written off, Chandrasekhar Rao added.
Earlier, KCR, addressing the training programme for TRS workers at Jammikunta in Huzurabad constituency,said the Telangana region did not need Andhra leaders and called upon the people to defeat the parties headed by Andhra leaders in the next general elections. About 500 workers from various parties joined the TRS in his presence. While welcoming them, he said with the entry of Kadiam Srihari from the TDP, the TRS was further strengthened.
Kadiam Srihari, who joined TRS from TDP on Wednesday, said he realised that the Telangana was more important than the political party, which gave him political life and decided to join TRS to fight for separate Telangana. He said he was convinced that separate state would be possible only under the leadership of KCR.A About 10,000 TRS workers attended the training camp. MLC P Sudhakar Reddy, MLAs Eetela Rajender, Gangula Kamalakar, S Satyanarayana, Koppula Eswar and several party leaders spoke at the camp.
