Congress promises farm loan waiver upto Rs 2 lakh

KARIMNAGAR: The Congress has held out an offer to waive farm loans upto Rs 2 lakh per farmer if it forms the next government in Telangana.

“We will do this in one go and decrease the price of cooking gas per cylinder to Rs 500, sanction Rs 5 lakh for construction of house to the homeless and fill two lakh posts in the first year of the next government, the party’s Husnabad assembly segment in-charge Praveen Reddy said on Thursday.

“The people had given a chance to the BRS party two times. This time, they must elect the Congress that gave us a separate Telangana state,” he said while participating in the Gadapa Gadapa Ku Congress party programme in Sriramulapalli village of Koheda mandal in Husnabad constituency.

He said while BRS party MLA Satish Kumar was close to chief minister Chandrasekhar Rao, he did not take any step for development of the constituency. Whatever development the constituency had was thanks to the previous Congress governments, he claimed.

The Congress leader visited various villages to distribute pamphlets and explain to the people what the Congress party can do if it returns to power.
“When the BRS government completed the Mallanna Sagar project, why was it showing discrimination and not completing the Gandipallu project in Husnabad constituency,” he asked.

“KCR had boasted that he took up the separate Telangana movement for the sake of water, jobs and funds (Neelu, Niyamakalu and Needulu), but he betrayed the people after he formed the government. The various welfare schemes that the BRS government implemented had only benefited its party cadre, he alleged.
