To celebrate the TRS' foundation day on April 27, the state government has decided that it will launch the KCR Apatbandhu scheme, which is aimed at the welfare of the BC community of Telangana.
Speaking on the matter, BC Welfare Minister Gangula Kamalakar told the press that the ruling party had planned several unique programs to generate employment for the state's youth, and that it would also launch the KCR Apatbandhu scheme, under which ambulances would be provided to BC youths to assist people during medical emergencies, on April 27.
The minister stated that Rs 100 crore would be spent on a program for women empowerment while Rs 300 crore would be spent on generating jobs for the youth.
"The government will soon initiate programs which will help all the youth and the marginalised communities in myriad ways in the near future. The TRS Government under the leadership of our visionary Chief Minister, K Chandrashekar Rao, has been taking many steps to ensure that the educated youth have no trouble finding good avenues of employment," he claimed.
Providing a glimpse into the aforementioned programs, Kamalakar added, "Besides providing vocational dress-designing training to women through the NIFT, modern sewing machines and other relevant gadgets will be given to the women for self-employment and economic empowerment. KCR has already sanctioned Rs 1,200 crore for BC welfare in the 2021-22 Budget. Further, we are currently working on a plan that will ensure that at least 50,000 youths get training in repairing works and then find stable employment as AC repairpersons and two-wheelers repairpersons."
Stating that 17 castes would soon be included in the BC category, he promised that the community would be given all the necessary support for its development. He also said that 119 new BC gurukul colleges would be started in the course of this year.
