Hyderabad, February 5: Telangana’s Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao has reiterated that the government programmes should be implemented more effectively through the new districts, formed for decentralization of administration, better governance and for the convenience of the people.
The Chief Minister has asked the officials to study each and every family, their living standards, identify the poor among them and design exclusive programmes for their benefit.
He was addressing district collectors here today at Pragathi Bhavan.
Government’s Chief Advisor Rajiv Sharma, Chief Secretary SP Singh, Government Chief Whip Palla Rajeshwar Reddy also attended the meeting.
KCR said that there is a wonderful human resource in Telangana.
“Identify the human resource and encourage it. The artisans from Jangoan-Pembarthy and the filigree Artists from Karimnagar are world famous for their artistic skills. Such artistic skills are there in abundance in every region in the State. Identify and encourage them,” the CM advised the collectors.
“Telangana State stood number one in the country by registering 19.5 per cent growth rate. This is possible due to the uninterrupted power supply being given in the State. We will continue this growth rate in future too.”
KCR urged officials to focus on strengthening the rural economy. He called for identifying human resource through resource mapping.
“In our state’s population, SCs constitute 16-17 per cent and STs 10 per cent. Women constitute 50 per cent. SCs were kept outside the village and STs were confined to their Thandas or Gudems. The women were confined to the kitchen. About 75 per cent of human resource is thus wasted.,” CM said and called for utilising human resources.
He asked collectors to prepare district-wise plans for SCs/STs. “Encourage people in agriculture, self-employment, industries and other fields and prepare plans for empowering them,” he told officials.
Stating that the government is aunching on a massive scale residential schools for the SCs, STs, BCs and Minorities, he directed collectors to identify lands for the setting up these institutions.
