Hyderabad: Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao is completing six months in office on Tuesday. Though the government is claiming that it launched several welfare schemes for the benefit of the poor, the opposition says that the actual test for TRS has just begun. If the government does not pull up its socks and work according to aspirations of people, the day would not be far when public would revolt against the very government it voted to power, warn political rivals.
KCR, who was sworn in as the first Chief Minister of Telangana State on June 2, launched various schemes and initiatives in the last six months that includes land distribution for Dalits, marriage assistance to SCs, STs and Muslim families at time of wedding of their daughters, modernization of policing in state capital, single-window policy to woo investors, health cards to government staff, SHE teams to protect women. A few schemes like ‘Mission Kakatiya’ to revive water bodies in ten districts, development of Yadagirigutta in over 2,000 acres and Drinking Water Grid, which received wide appreciation from several quarters.
On several occasions, KCR highlighted the bottlenecks being faced by the Telangana government on administration front due to delay in distribution of AIS officer and government employees. He firmly said that he would put the administration on a fast-track mode once the allocation process was completed. He announced ambitious plans like building skyscrapers, including world's tallest building around Hussainsagar besides cleaning the polluted lake by emptying it completely in a phased manner. In the just-concluded Assembly budget session, the TRS government introduced its maiden budget that was over one-lakh crore.
The CM received brickbats for a few of his decisions. The opposition parties latched on quickly to criticize the government’s shortcomings on farmers’ suicides and power crisis issues. Among other issues, Aasara pension, ration cards, intensive household survey financial assistance to martyrs’ families, regularization of contract employees, fee assistance to students and the Gachibowli land issue among others drew flak from the opposition parties.
