Will not distribute liquor or money for votes, will sit at home if defeated: KTR
KTR on Tuesday reiterated that he would not resort to either distribution of liquor or money for the votes but instead seek a mandate transparently
SIRCILLA: Bharat Rashtra Samithi working president and Minister K Taraka Rama Rao on Tuesday reiterated that he would not resort to either distribution of liquor or money for the votes but instead seek a mandate transparently.
He said that he would win if people were happy with his work.
During a check distribution program for beneficiaries under the BC Bandhu scheme, KTR urged the public to question opposition parties about their achievements when they sought votes. The minister took an indirect dig at the Congress party saying what could they do now when they were not able to develop the state when they had ruled for 50 years.
He said that he would not spend money in the next election and would sit at home if defeated. He, however, said that as long as KCR was the Chief Minister, the state would not have any problems. KTR said that the CM would inaugurate a medical college in Siricilla in September.
KTR emphasized that KCR's rule had been a golden era for welfare and said that the government's objective was to empower the poor and lower classes, which was reflected in various caste-based schemes. He said that under the Dalit Bandhu scheme, financial assistance of Rs 10 lakhs was being provided to support the Dalits, and Rs 1 lakh was being provided to BCs under the BC Bandhu scheme. KTR said that 600 beneficiaries had already received Rs 1 lakh and 300 beneficiaries from each constituency would be included in the BC Bandhu scheme. "Additionally, the scheme will be implemented to benefit 10,000 beneficiaries in Rajanna Siricilla district," KTR said.
KTR also highlighted the welfare schemes implemented by the government, which covered individuals from newborn babies to the elderly. He praised KCR for being a pro-poor chief minister and expressed confidence that people would continue to support a leader who genuinely cared for them.
KTR assured that financial assistance of Rs. 3 lakhs would be provided to beneficiaries under the Gruha Lakshmi scheme.
Earlier, he greeted enthusiastic schoolchildren and asked them why they were not studying, as they were peeping through windows to take a glance of the minister.
The kids told KTR that they were his fans and cheered him lustily when he gave them a flying kiss over the compound wall of the school.
