Two bedroom houses for weaker sections, Rs 50,000 crore for Dalit welfare and Rs 25,000 crore for backward classes are among the slew of promises made by TRS in its election manifesto released on Friday.

TRS President K Chandrasekhar Rao, who has ruled out an alliance with any party for the general and Legislative Assembly polls in Andhra Pradesh, said his party, if voted to power, would work for the welfare of poor and marginalised sections.

The “reconstruction” of Telangana, post its formation on June 2, would be possible only with TRS in power, he stressed.

“We have to take steps to fill power deficit. Congress and TDP Governments have failed miserably on Dalit welfare. About Rs 50,000 crore will be spent for Dalit welfare in the next five years.

“About Rs 25,000 crore will be spent for welfare of backward classes in five years,” he said.

Alleging that previous Governments did not do enough for Muslims, the TRS President said “a Rs 1,000 crore-budget” would be earmarked for their welfare.

Congress and TDP have been accusing the TRS President of going back on his promise to make a Dalit leader the first Chief Minister of Telangana.

TDP, trying to regain its glory in the region, has announced it would make a backward class leader the Chief Minister if voted to power in the soon-to-be created State.

Rao said the habitations of tribals would be recognised as Gram Panchayats and special measures taken for employees of Telangana Government.

“A TRS Government would be employee-friendly. A special Telangana increment would be given to celebrate the formation of separate Telangana. They will get salaries on par with the Central Government staff. Retired staff would be given pensions on par with Central Government staff.”

“Two bedroom houses would be built for weaker sections and given to them free of cost,” he said.

Memorials would be installed in honour of those who “sacrificed their lives” for formation of Telangana and their families provided assistance, the TRS President said.

Other promises in the document include regularisation of contract staff, Rs 1,500 a month pension for disabled and Rs 1,000 for widows.

    I am a Telangana resident and these are the changes I saw after KCR came into power.lt;br/gt;1. Public transportation system became pretty much useless. He igned all the buses to Medaram, Yadagiri etc. Even if these buses run empty, they don't let you board unless you are going to Medaram or from Medaram to Hyd. They run empty most of the time.lt;br/gt;2. He is moving our state towards Tamil Nadu type politics by giving Muslim quota etc.lt;br/gt;3. Spending money on Vaastu, gifts to temples, donations etc. Public Money.lt;br/gt;4. Thousands of acres of fertile land is going to be destro due to his plan of building "the biggest reservoir", which is expensive.lt;br/gt;The people who voted for him in the last elections will not be so kind to TRS this time.
