Women Welfare Forum to be launched on May 18 Visakhapatnam: Rajya Sabha member and chairman of Parliamentary Standing Committee on Science & Technology, Environment and Forests T Subbarami Reddy said political power would help service-oriented persons to better serve the society. "Lord Eswar gave me money, capability and health and if political power is included, I can serve all sections of people in need," said he said while addressing a large gathering of women team leaders from all 72 municipal Wards at an interaction meeting before the launch of TSR Women Welfare Forum at his residence here on Saturday. "Getting important projects like Rs 400 crore cancer hospital at Aganampudi, laying of a pipeline from Kakinada to Vizag to supply LPG to domestic and industrial sectors, a superspeciality oncology ward in the King George Hospital (KGH), plantation of 40 lakh saplings to protect environment was possible because I am in power as Member of Parliament and chairman to a Parliamentary Standing Committee," he said. After the launch of TSR SC, ST Welfare Forum, TSR Kreeda Peetham and TSR Medical Service Forum, it was decided to launch TSR Women Welfare Forum on May 18 at a mega function at Port Kalavani Auditorium, he said. "Though there are many 'crorepatis' in the country, nobody is coming forward to serve the society," he pointed out. The RS member further said his other ongoing social service projects include Yuva Drishti, a night shelter for the attendants visiting the KGH, free water supply through tankers and health care through mobile medical units to all slum areas. About the TSR Women Welfare Forum, he said it would not only work as a bridge between the beneficiaries and the State and the Central governments, but also provide sewing machines and cooking material to take up catering service to eke out their livelihood. He asked the women to form groups to get benefits from the TSR Forum. Among others, Gajuwaka MLA Chintalapudi Venkatramaiah and Visakha City Mahila Congress president Pedada Ramanikumari also spoke.
