Rajanna-Sircilla: Information Technology Minister KT Rama Rao found fault with opposition party leaders for promising to provide allowance to unemployed youths if they (Congress) were voted to power in 2019 elections.
For the sake of votes, opposition leaders were making impossible promises. However, they have no sympathy for unemployed youths, KTR said after inaugurating ITI, with Home Minister Naini Narsimha Reddy, at Mandepalli of Thangallapalli mandal on Monday.
Referring the opposition’s promise to give Rs 3,000 to Rs 5,000 allowance to unemployed, the Minister said the opposition had no answer to whom and how the allowance would be provided. “Whether it would be given to SSC, ITI, Intermediate, Degree, Engineering or PG holders?” he added.
Stating that people know very well about opposition who ruled the State over 50 years, he urged people not to believe the false promises.
Opposition parties were in dilemma about their winning prospects since Telangana government led by Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao had been taking measures to protect the interests of all sections of the society, he added.
Separate Telangana agitation was started for water, funds and employment. Irrigation projects were being taken up to provide water to one crore acres by diverting Godavari and Krishna rivers water into agricultural fields, the Minister said.
Besides these projects, financial assistance (Rythu Bandhu), fertilizers and insurance facility was being provided for the welfare of farmers. Double bedrooms, Aasara pensions, Kalyanalakshmi and Shaadi Mubarak and other schemes had been introduced, Rama Rao added.
Recruitment for 1.12 lakh vacant government jobs would be continued without any break, he said and emphasised the need to provide top priority for private sector and invite companies to invest in the State to provide employment to maximum number of youths. For the purpose, government had established TS-iPass.
Besides giving training in various self-employment progrmmes, efforts were being made to strengthen rural economy, he said.
There was scope for ITI holders to get employment in construction related field. Local youths would also get jobs in textile and apparel parks. Top priority was being given to weaker section in self-employment training programmes, the Minsiter said.
Over 15,000 youths would get employment in Sircilla textile park. While Warangal is going to get a textile park, handloom parks would be established in Gadwal and Pochmpalli.
Efforts were being made to establish food processing industries in every constituency and agro industries would also be established.
