HYDERABAD: Telangana government’s prestigious Dalit Badhu scheme will be first implemented from Vasamalamarri from Thursday.
Chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has announced that Rs 10 lakh would be deposited in the accounts of 76 Dalit families in Vasamalamarri village in Turkapally mandal in Yadadri-Bhongiri district.
“The state government will be releasing Rs 7.60 crore for the village and the funds would be deposited in the accounts of 76 Dalit families from Thursday onwards. Dalits Protection Fund will be created in Alair assembly constituency. Vasalamarri will become a role model in Dalit Bandhu scheme and will see development on the lines of Erravelli village,” the CM said during his visit to the village on Wednesday.
The CM had earlier announced that scheme would be launched from Huzurabad assembly constituency and even held an orientation programme for about 412 people from the constituency a couple of weeks ago. He was supposed to launch the scheme officially on August 16 in the Huzurabad assembly segment.
But later he changed the location to Vasalamarri village.
There is about 100 acres of surplus land in the village which will be assigned to Dalit families, he said.
He also said 2-BHK houses would be sanctioned to the homeless in the village.
The CM also directed Yadadri district collector to sanction pensions to the eligible.
