600 beneficiaries get houses in Erravelli, Narasampet villages
- KCR spells out 3-point rural growth plan
Hyderabad: Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has wished that all villages in the State become self-sufficient, self-governed and self-reliant. He said Erravelli and Narasampet villages under Siddipet Assembly Constituency are moving towards this direction and all the other villages in the State should take this as an example and achieve an all-round development.
Participating in a combined house warming ceremony of double bed room houses in these two villages at 7.30 am on Friday, the Chief Minister also inaugurated a marriage hall at Erravelli village. He visited the houses of Tondur Ramachander in Erravelli village and Bhookala Parvathalu Yadav in Narasampet village and congratulated them.
The Chief Minister moved around both the villages and interacted with the people and personally enquired about their well-being. KCR, who declared Erravelli and Narasampet villages as cashless transaction villages, distributed swiping machines to the people. With this, the TRS Government has taken the first step in fulfilling the promise made by the Chief Minister to provide two-bedroom houses to the poor living in slums in the State.
The Chief Minister handed over about 600 houses with all facilities to the beneficiaries at a mass house warming ceremony. While 330 houses were given away to the beneficiaries in Erravalli, 159 were handed over in Narasampet. He also inaugurated a pylon at Erravalli and a community hall.
Addressing the public, the Chief Minister said both Erravelli and Narasampet have been declared cashless transaction villages. He said for the first time, under the leadership of Minister T Harish Rao, in the Siddipet Assembly Constituency, Ibrahimpur was declared the first cashless villages in the State. Taking inspiration from Ibrahimpur, Erravelli and Narasampet villages have also become cashless, he added.
“This cashless model should extend to all the villages in the State and Telangana should become No 1 State in the country in cashless transactions. “I urge people to make this experiment a success. Erravelli and Narasampet villages are on the path to become model villages. They will become self-governed, self-sufficient and self-reliant in all aspects. These villages will not be dependent on anyone and the people should make this as a reality. People in these villages should help to make these villages as a training ground for achieving our dream of Bangaru Telangana. We have achieved unity among the people. Persons, who refused to budge an inch from their lands have sacrificed hundreds of square yards to make the double bed room house scheme a success. They have sacrificed their piece of land for others’ benefit. There is a lot of awareness among the people now. We will organise a mass lunch one-day where we all meet and discuss other issues.
“This is only a small step forward. We have finished the village construction. There is a need to construct more houses. There are some leftover works to be completed. We will work hard and do Srama Daan (voluntary labour) to complete these works. I once again, thank people from Erravelli and Narasampet villages and representatives of these villages”, the Chief Minister said.
Ministers T Harish Rao, A Indrakaran Reddy, Deputy Speaker Padma Devender Reddy, ZP Chairperson Rajamani Murali Yadav, MPs K Prabhakar Reddy, P Srinivas Reddy, Principal Secretary (Housing) Chitra Ramachandran, District Collector Venkatram Reddy, Joint Collector Hanumanth Rao and others participated in the event. –NSS
