Telangana Dalit Bandhu:  Business licenses, financial assistance to make marginalized sections self-reliant

Hyderabad: Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao said Telangana Dalit Bandhu Scheme is being implemented to remove economic disparity and social discrimination of marginalized sections of society.

He said with the financial assistance given under the scheme, the Dalit community can foray into business.

During an interactive session with a select group of SC villagers from Huzurabad, KCR spoke about utilization of the funds from the scheme.

''Dalit Bandhu is not only a programme but also a movement. Everyone should take firm decisions in this regard. Telangana statehood agitation was started by one person. Later we put pressure on the country's political system and became successful. There will be some adverse forces away. We will achieve success when we travel on the right path and believe in ourselves," he said

KCR said the state government will extend reservations to SCs in allotment of licensed business like rice mills, fertilizer, medical and liquor shops.

The eight-hour-long meeting was also attended by MLAs and MLCs of TRS belonging to the SC community. KCR said the government will extend financial help to Dalits to foray into power tiller, harvester, Paddy planting machine, Autos, tractors, Poultry, tent house, Dairy, Oil Mill, grinding mill, cement and bricks business, industry, hotel, steel, cement and building material, photography, videography, mobile phone, Mobile Tiffin, Hotels, Cloth emporium, furniture shops, etc.

KCR said the beneficiaries of Dalit Bandhu will be provided ID cards that will have barcoded electronic chips which can be used to pass on information about the implementation of the programme

"It is very unfortunate that the Dalits who have the talent and skills are being discriminated against and kept away from the productivity sector. They are being treated as untouchables. It is also unfortunate that women are confined to unproductive sectors due to gender bias. This is a foolish act," he said.
