Hyderabad: Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao on Friday said the Dalit Bandhu scheme will be implemented with the same spirit the way statehood for separate Telangana was achieved. Claiming he will not rest till the last Dalit family was covered, the CM urged intellectuals to take a proactive role and enlighten Dalits on the scheme.

“The scheme will turn into a movement in the country,” he said. At a review meeting on Dalit Bandhu in Karimnagar district collectorate, KCR said the scheme was not aimed at garnering votes during elections. He said his government was viewing implementation of Dalit Bandhu as a ‘maha yagna’.

The government will spend about ₹20,000 crore to ₹30,000 crore on two to three lakh Dalit families a year via the scheme, he said. “About ₹1.75 lakh crore will be spent on Dalits in a phased manner.”

रेड्डी परिवार में छिड़ी रार

अविभाजित आंध्र प्रदेश के पूर्व मुख्यमंत्री वाइ.एस. राजशेखर रेड्डी की 2 सितंबर को 12वीं पुण्यतिथि पर उनकी पत्नी विजयम्मा ने हैदराबाद में एक श्रद्धांजलि सभा का आयोजन किया, जो अब तेलंगाना की राजधानी है. हालांकि वाइएसआर के बेटे तथा आंध्र प्रदेश के मौजूदा मुख्यमंत्री वाइ.एस. जगनमोहन रेड्डी उससे दूर रहे, जिससे रेड्डी परिवार में कलह की अटकलों की पुष्टि हो गई. दरअसल, जगन बहन वाइ.एस. शर्मिला के तेलंगाना में अपने पिता से 'प्रेरित' नई राजनैतिक पार्टी शुरू करने के फैसले के खिलाफ हैं, क्योंकि यह उनकी युवजन श्रमिक रायतु कांग्रेस (वाइएसआरसी) को टक्कर दे सकती है, जिसका बगल के तेलुगु भाषी राज्य में राज है.
