KARIMNAGAR: The Telangana government was working hard with the aim of developing the weaker strata of society, said backclass welfare minister Gangula Kamalakar, adding that with the construction of two-bedroom houses, the long-term dream date of the poor to have their own home had come true in the state of Telangana.
Speaking after distributing double bedroom houses to around 40 beneficiaries, along with an additional district collector, Shyam Prasad Lal, here at Mugdumpuram village of Karimnagar rural mandal in Karimnagar district on Monday, Kamalakar said that even after completing 74 years of independence, any prime minister or chief minister had ever thought of building two-bedroom houses for poor homeless families.
In Mugudumpuram village, out of a total of 52 beneficiaries, 2 BHK houses were distributed to 40 members and soon the pattas would be given to the remaining beneficiaries, he assured.
After the formation of the state of Telangana, under the leadership of K. Chandrashekar Rao, the government of Telangana strove to uplift the oppressed. Within this framework, the government has introduced various social protection programs for several categories of people and has been implementing them successfully, he added.
Up to 1,400 double room houses have been sanctioned for the Karimnagar Assembly segment. Most of the construction works of 2 BHK houses have been completed and some are in the final stages of completion.
Due to the coronavirus epidemic, the construction works of the 2 BHK houses have been delayed for the past two years. After completing the construction works of the remaining 2 BHK houses, apart from providing basic facilities, they will be distributed in a phased manner to all eligible homeless poor families, he said.
Later, the Minister and the Additional Collector enjoyed meals with the recipients while participating in their housewarming ceremony.
MP T. Lakshmaiah, ZPTC Devanapalli Pushpa, MPTC Anjireddy, PACS Chairman Anand Rao, Srinivas, Sampath, Jakkanna, Narasaiah, Tahsildar Venkat Reddy and Banda Tirupati were among those present.
