Mahabubnagar: How to halt migration from Mahabubnagar district was the focal point of the Dasa-Disa programme organised by HMTV at SVS auditorium in Mahabubnagar on Saturday.
Aimed at evolving a solution to annul migration, the programme tried to debate on lack of employment opportunities, pending projects, failure of education system, lack of committed and dedicated leaders, corruption and most importantly lack of a comprehensive policy initiative by the successive governments.
The programme began with a comprehensive presentation on the various available resources, leading personalities, revolutionists on one hand, while on the other its pathetic state in almost all the sectors.
Nagam Janardhan Reddy, president of Bachao Telangana Forum said, “After formation of Telangana, people of the district expected the present government to compete the existing pending projects, but instead it is taking up new projects spending thousands of crores without completing the existing projects.
This kind of unmindful planning of the government will become a costly affair and may further push the district into dark if it fails to complete them in the intended time.”
According to Raghava Chari, Palamuru District Forum convener, “Mahabubnagar is having more than 40 lakh hectares of cultivable land, however only 12 per cent of this land is under irrigation.
Migration is mainly because of lack of employment opportunities. It is high time that the policy makers and the rulers must come out with concrete policy decisions with committed mindset to bring a change,” he opined.
Rajender, member of State BC Welfare Society, highlighted that majority of people who were migrating from the district belong to SC, ST and BC communities.
The programme was moderated by P Venkata Krishna, Chief Editor, Debates and Discussions. Leaders, who participated in the programme, agreed that priority should be given to pending projects.
