Reviewing the flagship programs of Mission Bhagiratha and Mission Kakatiya, Minister for Irrigation T Harish Rao today asked the officials concerned to complete the works on time to ensure that Sheep Rearing scheme proves handy. Harish Rao said the government was reviving the caste and professional communities by giving financial aid on time.
The Minister was participating at the prestigious “Sheep Rearing” Scheme at Narsampet in Warangal district along with Deputy Chief Minister Kadiam Srihari, Tribal Welfare Minister Ajmira Chandulal and others.
Speaking on the occasion, the Minister wooed the Yadava community to make use of the sheep being distributed among them. The aim of the Sheep Rearing scheme was to empower Yadava brothers by giving them sheep units with 75 per cent subsidy, Harish Rao said and accused the previous Government of neglecting the caste-based professions and farm sector and irrigation sector which forced the farmers and workers to migrate to other places for livelihood. “Now that the TRS was at the helm of affairs, we are reviving the community and caste based professions in a big way”, he claimed.
The distribution of sheep units, pressing in mobile veterinary vehicles to offer timely health services to the cattle will give positive results in the days to come, he hoped. “Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao strongly feels that the growth of rural people will be the real growth of the State. KCR is scheming out programs on time-bound manner to empower the rural-folk”, Harish said.
Srihari said the sheep rearing scheme was the brainchild of the Chief Minister, who was dreaming big to empower the Gollas and Kurumas in the State. Now it is for the poor and other communities to get timely benefits from the government and support the government to usher in a new era of rapid growth and fast development.
Chandulal said Chief Minister KCR knows about the problems of the farmers and poor class in villages and hence coming up with various schemes to help them. He said KCR was giving equal priority to extending similar financial help to the Dhobhis and Barbers and other professions by providing some financial assistance. The people should support the State government in its efforts for welfare scheme reaching the needy and unreached, he added. (NSS)
