Hyderabad | 21st February 2021
Telangana has won yet another national award by meeting a target set by the Centre last year on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti.

A release from the Centre revealed that the Telangana government had won the award for installing taps providing potable water to all the schools and anganwadi centres of the state.

It was among a small handful of other states that had won this unique distinction. Other states that achieved similar records include Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Haryana, Goa and Himachal Pradesh.

While the deadline to meet the 100% tap coverage target was initially set at 100 days from October 2, 2020, it was extended till March 31 following the appeals of various states and union territories.

Speaking on the occasion, Panchayat Raj Minister Errabelli Dayakar Rao said that the state had consistently worked towards such developmental outcomes, and had won several similar awards due to its commitment to progress.

He also said that the Mission Bhagiratha program, a flagship scheme of the KCR government, had helped the state achieve this record.

"Telangana is among the first few states to provide tap connections in all the schools and Anganwadi centres. This is all due to the efforts of Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao and Minister K T Rama Rao, who had held the Panchayat Raj portfolio earlier. The vision and hard work of the KCR government have yielded these positive results - our award and the success of our Mission Bhagiratha program are both proof of this," Dayakar Rao said.

"Seeing the success of our various welfare schemes and initiatives, I hope the Centre sanctions funds To Telangana more readily in the future," he added.
