KT Rama Rao: KT Rama Rao: The Price of Not Publicising Schemes in Polls | Hyderabad News | Hyderabad News



Hyderabad: Former IT minister KT Rama Rao said despite the previous BRS government implemented 10% reservations for Scheduled Tribes, distributed pattas on podu lands and offered several welfare schemes, people did not vote for BRS in assembly constituencies falling under Mahbubabad Lok Sabha limits.
“We lost in the polls because BRS focused on implementing welfare schemes and instead, it should have also focused on publicity of its schemes,” he said at Mahabubabad party leaders’ meeting here on Thursday.
He said people fell for the ‘false promises’ made by Congress, which rode to power by carrying out false propaganda on BRS during the assembly elections.
“Congress alleged that BRS did not give one new ration card in the last 10 years. But in nine-and-a-half years of our governance, we issued 6.47 lakh new ration cards. We filled up the highest number of vacancies in government departments and Telangana is the only state where government employees have been getting highest salaries. Increments of 73% were given by KCR. Even the number of Aasara pensions has been increased to 46 lakh from 29 lakh,” he claimed.
KTR said the party would bounce back by taking corrective steps in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.
