CM's Review Meeting
Our Hon’ble Chief Minister, Sri Kalvakuntla Chandrashekhar, has shown a great interest and inclination towards developing the welfare societies. The vision he had for the marginalized communities has been witnessed in the society after the inclusion of many programmes and initiatives for the children belonging to various welfare societies – be it SC, BC, ST or Minorities.
It was indeed a moment of pride when our Hon’ble Chief Minister, on the occasion of 125th Birthday celebrations of Dr. B. R. Ambedkar, announced the establishment of 51 New Residential schools in the 10 districts of the Telangana State, with high priority given to the ST Constituencies and ST population.
The Government of Telangana has very clearly declared that it would focus not only on the education, but also on the good school infrastructure and governance. The government also intends to provide nutritious and wholesome food for the children. The CM had also instructed the officials concerned to spend more funds over and above the allocation in the budget for SCs and STs based on their population figures during a recent review meet on SC/STs Sub-Plan, Welfare and Development at Pragathi Bhavan. It was also decided to concentrate more on the SCs and STs who are economically backward
Reiterating the government’s commitment to the welfare of the SC, ST, BC and Minority communities, KCR said he had personally reviewed functioning of these departments to strengthen the welfare schemes to ensure that the downtrodden are benefitted by the activities. The CM also remarked that by imparting quality and high standard education the future of SCs and STs younger generation will change for the better.
