Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) MLA G Lasya Nanditha died in a road accident on the Patancheru outer Ring Road in Telangana's Sangerddy district on the outskirts of Hyderabad on Friday early morning.
New Telangana Chief Minister Revanth Reddy has hit the ground running immediately after swearing-in on Wednesday and approved the six poll guarantees his Congress party promised.
On the very first day in office, CM Reddy signed two key files – one approving the implementation of six poll guarantees made by the Congress party before elections, and the other providing a job to a differently abled woman, TK Rajini, who had met him during the campaign and expressed her difficulty in finding employment.
Rajini has been given a job at the district collector’s office of her choice. She had met the Congress leader during the poll campaign in Nagarkurnool.
The six poll guarantees, dubbed the “Bangaru Telangana Guarantees” (Golden Telangana Guarantees), aim to improve the lives of various sections of society in the south Indian state.
What are the six gaurantees CM Reddy approved today?
Mahalakshmi: A scheme that will provide financial assistance to women belonging to families below the poverty line.
Rythu Bharosa: Under the Rythu Bharosa gaurantee, the state government will prove annual financial assistance to farmers.
Gruha Jyothi: The Congress party has promised to provide housing for the poor under the Gruha Jyoti scheme.
Indiramma Indlu: Named after former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, Indiramma Indlu scheme will provide safe drinking water and sanitation facilities to rural households.
Yuva Vikasam: Under the scheme, the state government will focus on skill development and employment generation for youth.
Cheyutha: Last but not the least, the Cheyutha scheme will provide financial assistance to unemployed youth to start their own businesses.
Earlier, Reddy began his first day in office with a traditional chanting of Mantras by Hindu priests.
