HYDERABAD: Contrary to popular perception that Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao’s adopted villages were better off than others, they were actually the most backward, TPCC chief and Malkajgiri MP A Revanth Reddy alleged on Tuesday. 

He was speaking on the first day of the two-day Dalita-Girijana Deeksha (hunger strike) at Moodu Chintalapalli in Shameerpet. Revanth said citizens in these places were mute witnesses to hollow promises. “Where is the development in the villages for which funds of Rs 28 crore were earmarked,” he wondered.

The Laxmapur village is yet to be identified on maps and details of lands remain unavailable in the Dharani portal. Schemes like Aasara pension, Shaadi Mubarak and Kalyana Lakshmi have been reduced to mere advertisements, he alleged. 

“Most residents aged over 57 in this village are not getting Aasara pensions. Instead of providing housing to Dalits, authorities have razed 247 houses. In Chinnamulkanur, it has been six years since demolitions took place and it is still uncertain if they will ever get houses,” he pointed out. Revanth cautioned SCs and STs that the Rs 10-lakh Dalit Bandhu Scheme was a poll ploy.
