"In line with the promises we made on the eve of the elections, welfare will be top on our agenda. In the next five years, the TRS government will spend Rs one lakh crore for the welfare on SCs, STs, Backward Classes and minorities. Of this, Rs 50,000 crore will be spent on SC welfare alone," KCR announced. "We will not leave scope for even a single rupee corruption in spending the welfare funds," he promised. (Source: PTI)
