Stable government, able leadership bring investments: KTR

HYDERABAD: Seeking an emphatic victory for the Bharat Rashtra Samithi with 100 seats in Telangana Assembly elections to create a hattrick in the coming elections, IT Minister K T Rama Rao has said that the stable governance provided by able leader K Chandrashekar Rao is the only reason why Telangana is attracting huge investments.

Addressing a public meeting at Kongara Kalan after the groundbreaking ceremony of Foxconn Interconnect Technology’s manufacturing unit on Monday, KTR pointed out that investments transformed into wealth thereby allowing the government to implement several welfare programmes in the state.

“Unfortunately, the opposition parties in the state are hellbent on misleading the people. One political party plays communal politics dividing the society and the other, which never did anything for the state, is asking for a chance,” he said.

While making it clear that the government alone could not provide employment, he said that jobs could either be created by private sector or through self-employment. “If Prime Minister Narendra Modi had kept his word and provided 18 crore jobs, the need for the Telangana BJP to organise an unemployment march wouldn’t have arisen,” he said.

Expressing concern over the extent to which opposition parties could stoop, KTR said that while the government had filled up 1.3 lakh government jobs and was ready to complete recruitment of the remaining portion of 2.20 lakh jobs, one party leaked question papers to mislead the unemployed.

He declared that Foxconn electronics manufacturing facility at Kongara Kalan would provide employment to 35,000 to 40,000 people directly and over one lakh jobs indirectly. “The company has assured that they would complete the construction within a year. To help the local youth to secure jobs in the unit, the local leadership must take initiative in helping the company to set up the skill development centre,” KTR said.

“Development, welfare, and interests of the people are the three major planks of development of our governance. Telangana’s welfare schemes and flagship programmes such as Mission Bhagiratha and Rythu Bandhu have been copied and implemented by the union government and other state governments. While villages in Telangana constitute 3 percent of the total number of villages in India, they have won 30 percent of the national awards,” he added.

He asked the party cadre to pay a visit to the Palamuru-Rangareddy lift irrigation project which was under construction. He said that the project would change the face of the landlocked Ranga Reddy district. “Those people who have created hurdles in the construction of the project are asking for a chance to rule the state,” he said.

Minister of Education P Sabitha Indra Reddy and Ibrahimpatnam MLA Manchireddy Kishan Reddy were among other BRS leaders that attended the public meeting.
