On the last day of campaigning for the upcoming MLC elections in the graduates' constituencies of Warangal-Nalgonda-Khammam and Hyderabad-Mahabubnagar-Rangareddy, today TRS working president and Telangana IT and Industries Minister K T Rama Rao made a final plea to the voters of the six districts to vote pink.
Addressing an employees' Joint Action Committee, he said that the ruling party had an inseparable bond with the employees, the advocates, the journalists, and the youth of the state, and promised them that it would always work to resolve the issues being faced by them.
Rao added that Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao would even announce a revised fitment, of about 29%, an increased retirement age, and various other sops for the employees during the upcoming Budget session of the Telangana Assembly.
"Our government has and will always support you, and will work to help you. We have already addressed the problems of water and power shortage in rural Telangana, and will soon address other problems in the state as well. We know how critical the role of the employees, the educated youth, the lawyers, and the journalists was in the Telangana movement, and will honour your contribution to the same. So, we would appeal to you to support us as well. Please give our candidates, Surabhi Vani Devi and Palla Rajeshwar Reddy, the chance to serve you," he urged.
"Telangana is the only state that has a journalists' welfare fund worth Rs 100 crore. Our regime has, so far, filled 1.33 lakh government job posts, and will fill 50,000 more after the elections. The BJP and the Congress, on the other hand, have only spread misinformation and hate in the state. You must think carefully, and then cast your vote for development and welfare," the minister said.
Referring to the saffron party's "anti-people" inclinations, Rao brought up the issue of the privatisation of Andhra Pradesh's Visakhapatnam Steel Plant and told the people that the BJP worked not for them but for the already-rich corporates, and encouraged them to support the "pro-welfare" TRS instead.
