Congress Govt’s 6 guarantees to be operational in time-bound manner, says Governor

HYDERABAD: Governor Dr. Tamilisai Soundararajan has announced the implementation of all six guarantees in a time-bound manner.

In an address to the joint session of the Telangana Legislature on Thursday, the Governor reiterated the government's commitment to realising the six guarantees promised during the elections for the welfare and development of the people. "Two guarantees have already been implemented, showcasing the government’s dedication. More than 15 crore trips have been utilised by our women through the free TSRTC bus transportation services under the Mahalakshmi scheme, implemented as part of the six guarantees," she said.

Stating that over 1.28 crore applications were received during the Praja Palana programme conducted in every gram panchayat and every municipality, she affirmed that all six guarantees would be implemented in a time-bound manner.

The Governor announced that the State Government would soon implement two more guarantees. "Under the Mahalakshmi scheme, LPG cylinders will be supplied to eligible families for Rs. 500 only. Similarly, under the Gruha Jyothi scheme, 200 units of free domestic power will be given to every eligible household," she said.

Furthermore, Dr Tamilisai mentioned that guarantees, including the Mahalakshmi, Rythu Bharosa, Gruha Jyothi, Indiramma Houses, Yuva Vikasam, and Cheyutha, would also be implemented.

"Our vision for Telangana encompasses various sectors, from irrigation projects like Palamuru Rangareddy to education, with the filling up of about two lakh jobs by our newly constituted TSPSC. The government is actively addressing land-related issues through the newly formed Dharani Committee," she said.

The Governor stated that the State Government was committed to restoring financial discipline and transparency. Mentioning the white paper on finance released during the last session, she said that at the time of its creation, Telangana was a rich state, but the previous regime turned it into a debt-ridden state in 10 years. "The immediate challenge is to improve the state's financial situation without burdening the people," she added, noting that the budget would be an opportunity to start the path of restoration, responsibility, and accountability in the management of public finance.

Dr Tamilisai said that the Telangana Government had decided to conduct Kulaganana (caste survey) by taking up door-to-door household surveys to elicit the data required to estimate the social, educational, economic, employment, and political opportunities for various castes in general and BCs in particular.

Regarding agriculture, the Governor said robust policies would be implemented to ensure the prosperity of farmers through initiatives like Rythu Bharosa and crop loan waivers. "Our vision is not only to enhance agricultural productivity but also to create a sustainable and thriving environment for our farmers," she said.

The Governor dedicated a major portion of her address to the industries and service sectors, calling them vital for economic growth and major contributors to creating new jobs. She mentioned that the government intended to introduce a new policy based on a thorough study of existing ground realities, feedback from stakeholders, and taking cognisance of global best practices.

She announced that a new MSME Policy would be unveiled, and an exclusive institutional mechanism would be set up to handhold MSMEs and support their grievances.
