After Congress leading comfortably in the Telangana assembly polls, Bharat Rashtra Samiti (BRS) leader K. Kavitha said on Sunday that, with or without power, the BRS is the servant of the people of the state.
“Jai KCR !! Jai BRS !! Dear BRS family, thank you for all the hard work! Special thanks to all the social media warriors for the fight you put up! Let us not forget that, with or without power we are servants of the Telangana People. Let us all spiritedly work for our MotherLand”, Kavitha said in a post on ‘X’.
Crossing the majority mark of 90, the Congress has secured 63 seats in the 119-member Telangana assembly, while the incumbent BRS has secured 40 seats, as per the latest trends.
Congress dethroned the Chandrasekhar Rao-led Bharat Rashtra Samiti (BRS), which has been in power since 2014, when Telangana was granted statehood, by crossing the halfway mark.
Revanth Reddy, arrived at the party office in Hyderabad after it became clear that Congress was winning the state with a clear majority.
After a sweeping victory in Karnataka, Congress’ guarantees in Telangana have proved to be a game changer for the party in Telangana, India’s youngest state.
The guarantees covered cash transfers, pension schemes, free electricity, cylinders, and land for a wide base of voters, from women and farmers to students and martyrs’ families. These include the ‘Mahalakshmi’, ‘Rythu Bharosa’, ‘Gruha Jyothi’, ‘Indiramma Indlu’, ‘Yuva Vikasam’, and ‘Cheyutha’ guarantees.
Following the ‘Karnataka model’ of campaigning after its massive win in the state, Congress has promised to provide free bus travel for women in Telangana while also providing Rs 2500 to women every month under the Mahalaxmi Yojana. An LPG cylinder at Rs 500 is also among the promises under this scheme.
The party has promised to provide 200 units of free electricity to every household and a pension of Rs 4,000 per month to the elderly.
The Rythu Bharosa (Farmer’s Investment Support Scheme) guarantee pledges agricultural prosperity to the state’s 58.33 lakh farmers, promising Rs 15,000 annually to farmers and tenant farmers; Rs 12,000 for agricultural labourers; and a Rs 500 bonus for farmers growing paddy crops.
Under the Yuva Vikasam scheme, a Vidya Bharosa card worth Rs 5 lakh for students’ education will be provided and Telangana International Schools will be built in every division of the state.
Land and assistance of Rs 5 lakh for the houses of homeless people in the state have been promised under the Indira Amma Indlu scheme.
250 square yards of land for workers involved in the Telangana movement are also included in the scheme.
The Telangana election results are important for the Congress as it heads into the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. A win in Karnataka and Telangana would further cement its presence in the South
