Release Unemployed Youth Data: Uttam To CM
Hyderabad, Feb.28 (Maxim News): Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) President N. Uttam Kumar Reddy has asked Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao to release the data of unemployed youth in Telangana State.
Reddy was addressing the meeting with States heads of TPCC Frontal, Departments and Cells at Gandhi Bhavan on Sunday in connection with MLC elections for two Graduates constituencies of Warangal-Khammam-Nalgonda and Hyderabad-Rangareddy-Mahabubnagar. The meeting was attended by Balamuri Venkat (NSUI), Shivasena Reddy (Youth Congress), Preetham (SC Dept), Shaik Abdullah Sohail (Minorities Dept), Vinod (NRI Cell), Jagan Naik (ST Dept), Mettu Sai (Fishermen Cell) and other senior leaders. He urged them to activate the cadre at all levels in those six districts to ensure the victory of Congress candidates Ramulu Naik and G. Chinna Reddy.
Addressing the meeting, Uttam said that the unemployment rate has more than doubled ever since TRS came to power in 2014. He said as per the latest figures, as many as 19,43,783 qualified educated youth have registered themselves with the Telangana State Public Service Commission (TSPSC) alone. Further, there are over 10 lakh skilled/unskilled youth who are unemployed across Telangana State. This does not include lakhs of people who lost their jobs during the lockdown period, he said.
Reddy said that the Chief Minister should release the district-wise figures of unemployed persons in Telangana State. “TRS has cheated nearly 30 lakh unemployed youth with the promise of giving Unemployment Allowance of Rs. 3,016 every month. Despite winning the elections for the second term in December 2018, CM KCR did not fulfill the promise till now. Since Minister K. Tarakarama Rao has been giving an assurance that this promise will be fulfilled soon, he should ask his father CM KCR to officially release the district-wise data of unemployed persons along with guidelines for giving Unemployment Allowance,” he demanded.
The TPCC Chief said that the TRS leaders forget all the promises after winning elections. But when they face any by-election, they repeat all those promises or make new ones and cite the Model Code of Conduct as the reason for their non-implementation. He said people have understood the pattern of cheating and deception by CM KCR and his party leaders. Similarly, he said that the BJP Government at the Centre, headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has been cheating the unemployed youth since 2014. He said PM Modi had promised to give 2 crore jobs every year. By now, the BJP Govt should’ve created 14 crore new jobs. Instead, he said more than 18 crore people lost their jobs due to the wrong policies of the Modi Govt. Further, he said Modi Govt was taking away lakh of jobs for SCs, STs and BCs in reserved quota from the Public Sector companies by selling them away to private companies.
He said that the BJP has no moral right to seek votes in Telangana as it had dropped the Information Technology Investment Region (ITIR) project. He said this project was sanctioned by the previous Congress-led UPA Govt to create over 50 lakh jobs in Hyderabad and its neighbouring districts. (Maxim News)
