Khammam: The representatives of the Kula Vivaksha Porata Samiti (KVPS) tried to lay siege the Collectorate demanding the government to fulfill its poll promises here in Khammam on Monday. After staging a dharna at Dharna Chowk in front of the Collectorate, the representatives of KVPS tried to lay siege the Collectorate.
However, the police foiled their attempt. Soon a heated argument ensued between the leaders of KVPS and police officials, which ended with the arrest of KVPS leaders’ T Skylab Babu and Nandipati Manohar along with 30 other representatives of the Samiti. They were all shifted to Two Town police station.
Addressing the representatives after their arrest, State Secretary of KVPS T Skylab Babu alleged that the government was deceiving people of Telangana with their hallow promises. The government assured the unemployed youth that it would sanction loans on subsidy. But by keeping certain restrictions like bank consent and proposal of village panchayats, it was not allowing the youth to get loans, he allged.
The TRS government boasted that it will distribute three acres of land for about three lakh Dalit families, but it had distributed the land to only 6,600 Dalit families across the State. The government declared that it will allot Rs 10,000 crore every year under SC Sub-plan, but it had allotted only Rs 17,200 crore till date, he pointed.
As per GO 1234, for every Dalit colony present across the State, two acres of land must be allotted for burial ground but there are no burial grounds for Dalits in about 8,000 villages present in the State, he alleged. District Secretary of KVPS demanded the government to take immediate action against the officials who are delaying in sanctioning loans to the unemployed youth.
He demanded the government to fulfill its promises made to the people of Telangana of three acres of land, employment opportunities and double bedroom houses for eligible homeless poor.
