Industrial policy fails to enthuse underprivileged sections of society, alleges Congress
Hyderabad: The opposition Congress feels that the government was not favouring the underprivileged sections of the society. Even the industrial policy does not help the entrepreneurs from this section and it does not offer them subsidy, equity or security.
Participating in a discussion on budget, MLC M Ranga Reddy and Komatireddy Rajagopal Reddy said, “How can we expect the government to support the underprivileged when it is yet to form its own infrastructure corporation on par with APIIC (Andhra Pradesh Industrial Infrastructure Corporation.”
The Congress MLC expressed grief that the government had failed to provide loan waiver to the farmers despite having a budget of over Rs 1 lakh crore, he said. The lone woman member in the Legislative Council representing Congress party, Akula Lalitha, demanded the government that they find alternatives to revenue generation from excise as thousands of families were affected due to unrestrained alcohol consumption. She demanded the government that it should provide some relief to divorced woman on par with widow pensions.
MIM MLC Syed Altaf Hyder Razvi demanded the government ensure coordination between Wakf and Revenue departments. He felt that records of both departments should be reconciled and government should come up with some kind of legislation or Government Order to stop illegal registrations and sale deeds of Wakf lands.
He said that the Telangana government, which aims at developing parts of Old city should come to the rescue of QQSUDA (Quli Qutub Shah Urban Development Authority), which was formed about two decades ago. Karne Prabhakar, R Bhupathi Reddy, Patnam Narender Reddy, Naradasu Laxman Rao, V Bhoopal Reddy, Puranam Satish, Farooq Hussain, P Rajeshwar, K Rajagopal Reddy, M S Prabhakar and S Ramulu Naik also took part in budget discussion on Saturday. Finance Minister Eatela Rajender’s reply has been postponed to Sunday.
