Telangana Animal Husbandry Minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav today said that a public meeting with some 10 lakh Yadavas from across the state would be conducted at Gymkhana Grounds in Secunderabad on April 29.
Talking to mediapersons after holding a meeting with Yadava associations at the Secretariat today, Talasani said that the public meeting, christened the "Golla and Kuruma Prabhanjanam", was meant to be a thanksgiving to Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao, who was striving for welfare of the community.
The event would be attended by the people of the Golla and the Kuruma communities from all the districts of Telangana, Talasani said.
"We will soon also meet Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao to request him to address the meeting of the Yadavas," the minister said.
Wide-ranging publicity would be given to the event through wall posters and wall paintings in the villages and districts, he added. Coordination committees were formed to gather Gollas and Kurumas from all villages, towns and districts in large numbers, and these committees would tour from April 11 to address meetings at the village, mandal and division levels to create awareness among the community members and inform them about the importance of the sheep scheme, he said.
He asked the Yadava association leaders to conduct preparatory meetings in the districts and towns for the state-level meeting to be addressed by the Chief Minister. He said that he himself would also tour the districts in the first week of April.
The state government, he said, had been implementing the sheep scheme for the benefit and welfare of the Yadava community. The scheme had fructified as the 47 lakh sheep distributed to the beneficiaries had yielded another 15 lakh sheep, he said. This was resulting in the Yadavas slowly getting rich and leading better lives, he claimed.
The credit for all of that went to the Chief Minister who had spent Rs 5,000 crores on the sheep distribution scheme, the minister said. Besides, the CM had also granted Rs 10 crores for the construction of a Yadava Bhavan in a 10-acre plot of land at Kokapet in Hyderabad, he pointed out.
With KCR also announcing an MLC post for Kuruma Association president Yegge Mallesham and nominating a Yadava leader for the Rajya Sabha, the future of the Yadavas would change totally, Talasani proclaimed.
Shadnagar MLA Anjaiah Yadav, Telangana Yadava Federation president Rajaiah Yadav and others were present.
