BRS Govt. insulting minorities in the name of subsidy loans: Congress

  • BRS Govt sanctioned only Rs. 50 Cr to help 15 Lac jobless youth: Sohail
  • Targetted beneficiaries in 21 out of 33 districts are in double digits: Congress

BRS Govt. | Hyderabad, December 19: The Congress party has accused the TRS/BRS Govt of insulting the minority communities in the name of providing subsidy loans.

Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) Minorities Department Chairman Shaik Abdullah Sohail, in a media statement on Monday, said that the TS Minorities Finance Corporation has recently invited applications from candidates belonging to the minority community to provide subsidy loans.

However, he said a small amount of Rs. 50 crore has been earmarked to provide loans to just 5,000 jobless youth across Telangana State.

“The minority population in Telangana (as per the 2011 census) is 45,59,425 and it has increased significantly in the last decade. There are at least 12-15 lakh jobless youth among all the minority communities like Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Jains, etc., But the government intends to provide a loan of about Rs. 1 lakh to just 5,000 jobless youth. This is nothing but an open insult to all the minority communities in the State,” he said.

BRS / TRS Govt.

Abdullah Sohail said that the TRS Govt did not provide a single rupee loan to minorities in the last eight years. He pointed out that nearly 1.53 lakh jobless youth had applied for a loan when TRS Govt sought applications in the year 2015-16.

He said not a single application was cleared and then the TRS Govt stopped receiving such applications. He said despite several assurances given by Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao, nothing was done to implement the economic empowerment scheme.

“TRS Govt has invited loan applications after a gap of seven years. Instead of allocating a big amount to help a large number of jobless youth, Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao sanctioned a small amount of Rs. 50 crore only to cheat the minorities.

Now the KCR Govt will turn loan disbursals among 5,000 beneficiaries into a big event and use those pictures to create an impression as if it eradicated unemployment and poverty among minorities,” he said.

Telangana State

Abdullah Sohail said that the targetted beneficiaries across Telangana State have been classified into two categories and the number has been fixed based on the minority population in each district. He said the number of targetted beneficiaries in 21 out of 33 districts is in double digits.

The highest number of intended beneficiaries is 1,919 in the Hyderabad district where the minority population is 17,47,608. The lowest figure is just 10 in Jayashankar where the minority population is 9,492. Category-wise, the number of targetted beneficiaries is in single digits for several districts, he said.

CM KCR must stop this humiliation of minority communities. We are not beggars and we are not seeking any alms. We want our deserved share in the development.

TRS Govt is sending the wrong message to all minority communities by allocating mere Rs. 50 crore to provide loans from the annual budget of nearly Rs. 2.50 Lakh Crore budget,” he said while demanding that the State Government sanction at least Rs. 1,000 crore to provide loans to at least one lakh jobless youth.
