The Telangana NRIs today profusely thanked Chief Minister for the funds allocated to them and also for treating them very well at the plenary. They were overwhelmed with the response that they got in Hyderabad. They assured that the NRIs would strive for the development of Telangana in a big way in the near future.
CM Chandrashekhar Rao has announced the creation of a special Cell with Rs 50 Crore fund to help Telangana NRIs in case of any need. In this context, he said the state government would render any help for the Telangana NRIs in case of any need in any country. The CM instructed that an IAS officer would head this cell and Telangana NRI representatives from all the countries would accommodate in the Committee.
He has instructed Minister KT Rama Rao, MP K Kavita to prepare guidelines, an action for the NRI Cell and the Committee. The CM wanted the proposed NRI Cell and Committee should work for the welfare of the NRIs and find solutions to their problems. He said Rs 100 Crore was allocated in the State’s Budget for the NRI welfare and Rs 50 Crore from this would be transferred to the NRI Cell.
CM said if need be, the government is ready to give more funds to the NRI Cell and Committee. The CM has urged the Telangana NRIs to launch a debate and discussions abroad on the qualitative changes that he is speaking of and making attempts in the national politics.
KCR wanted them to explain the efforts being made by the Telangana leadership to set a national agenda in the country. He gave them a call to extend support and cooperation to the qualitative change in the country as children of the land as they did during the separate Telangana statehood movement. He wanted them to become stakeholders in the attempt being made for future of the country.
“Our country is very backwards when compared to other countries on several parameters. Both the Congress and BJP who are in the power are responsible for this state of affairs. If there is an opposition against Narendra Modi, then Rahul Gandhi will become the PM. What difference will it make to the country and what benefit it will have? If we get angry with one person, we elect the other. Whoever wins, there will not be any sea change.
There is a need to being in a qualitative change in the country’s politics. People’ agenda should be formed. There needs to be a guide on what the country’s people need and which direction the country should head. Right now I am on the job. I am preparing an Agenda for the people in the country. The whole country will adopt the agenda.
It will be possible if every political party chalks out an action plan based on this agenda. I am not thinking about national politics, not for any post or position.
I have taken this decision as I as a citizen of this country wanted to do something for the country. I took the decision and started working on this. If I thought why should I bother, do you think we would have got Telangana state? Is there any change possible if everyone in the country says what should we bother?
The beginning should be made at some point. We have made the start and when we work sincerely it will be possible. NRIs should discuss this issue globally. During the separate Telangana Statehood movement, I have explained why we launched the agitation and reasons. You help and cooperation had held the movement. Put an extensive debate on the qualitative change in the national politics which I am talking now,” the CM said.
