Telangana IT and Industries Minister K T Rama Rao inaugurated a new TSRTC office, reportedly built at an expense of Rs 25 crore, in Khammam today.
Speaking on the occasion, he said that not only was Telangana experiencing rapid development under the TRS regime but that Khammam too had been witnessing speedy growth. He also promised to establish two more integrated markets, modern cemeteries and several other facilities in Khammam soon.
The minister exhorted the local leaders in the other districts of the state to follow the lead of Khammam and to implement the welfare schemes and development programs of the state government properly. He assured them that the government would continue to give adequate funds for the growth and welfare of the people.
"Despite the significant economic losses incurred by Telangana during the Covid-19 pandemic, our government did not stop its welfare schemes. However, we need the support of our local leaders to ensure the proper implementation of the same. I would urge all the local-level leaders and administrators of the state to emulate Khammam district in this regard," he said.
KTR also revealed that the government was working towards making high-speed internet freely available to the people of the state. He added, "Broadband internet connections will become freely available to the people once the T-Fiber project is completed. We will also soon set up IT companies in second-tier cities and towns as this will generate employment for many educated youngsters and locals in the state. IT is a fast-growing sector in Telangana, and we are already providing employment to many through the sector. We hope to be able to continue to do so."
Not one to pass up an opportunity to flay the Centre, he then launched a bitter attack on the latter and criticised it for "ignoring" the bifurcation promises made to Telangana in the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act despite the "repeated pleas" of the state to implement the same.
Citing the Centre's biased attitude towards the state as the reason, he charged that it had refused to sanction the promised rail coach factory in Kazipet, the steel factory in Bayyaram and the much-coveted ITIR project besides denying developmental funds.
"The Centre has done little to support India's youngest state. It has not even bothered to implement the promises made to us during the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh. However, despite this, we have been able to achieve high growth and rapid development. The credit for this goes to our Chief Minister, K Chandrashekar Rao," the leader asserted.
While in Khammam, he also inaugurated over 1,000 double-bedroom houses in Tekulapalli, and laid the foundation for the works of the second phase of the district's IT hub.
