Hyderabad: During the Assembly session on Thursday, Telangana minister for municipal administration and urban development K.T Rama Rao asked the people who do not believe Chief Minister KCR's job announcement to apply for the two crore jobs 'promised' by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

He said that the TRS shows results in actions, not words.

He pointed out that Mr. Modi had said two crore jobs would be announced for youth in a year. "But it has been seven years since the announcement. He owes 14 crore jobs to the country's citizens," KTR said.

He pointed out that a journalist had questioned Mr. Modi regarding the jobs in the past. "To this, Modi responded that there is someone selling pakodi outside the TV studio and that is considered employment too," he said.

He added that the Central government only makes announcements but their actions are like the pakodas. KTR assured that the TRS will show results.

KTR further said that Telangana's IT sector is developing at a rapid rate. "People doubted the IT industry's survival when the state was formed. Now, we are top in terms of IT jobs," he said.

He added that Rs. 50 crore has been allotted for the development of the textile industry in the state and the first phase of the state road development programme has been partially completed. "The second phase will begin very soon. It will have 12 projects at a cost of Rs. 3,115 crore, including a flyover in Uppal, Khairatabad, and Jubilee Hills, a multilevel underpass at Rethibowli and Nanalnagar, a flyover in Bandlaguda, one near the Omar Hotel junction, an RuB (road under bridge) from Manikeshwar Nagar in the Secunderabad constituency, an RuB in Chilkalguda and two in Aramghar," he said.

On Wednesday, with an eye on polls, Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Reddy announced to provide over 91000 jobs to the youth of Telangana.

Around 91,142 job vaccines will be filled in the state. Of which 80,039 posts will be filled by direct recruitment. Contractual employees will also be part of a new scheme. Around 11,103 contractual employees will be regularised.

The financial implication for the posts would be Rs 7,300 crore per annum. "Upper age limit for unemployed will be relaxed by 10 years. So now the age limit will be 44 years for OC, 49 years for SC, ST, BC, 54 years for differently-abled, and 47 years for ex-servicemen", said KCR.

Telangana Government has notified 1,56,254 posts for recruitment after the formation of the state. Of which 1,33,942 posts have been filled up. The remaining 22,312 posts are under different stages of the recruitment process.
