Sangareddy: TRS cadre and members of general public across Sangareddy, Siddipet and Medak districts hailed the TRS manifesto that was released on Tuesday. Since the TRS chief K Chandrashekar Rao announced to increase the pensions to Rs 2,016 and Rs 3,016 for elderly and physically challenged people respectively besides introducing allowance to unemployed, the erstwhile Medak district, a stronghold of TRS, erupted into celebration.
TRSV leader from Gajwel, Mada Srinivas said that elderly people from across the Gajwel constituency welcomed the decision since they felt that the existing Rs 1,000 pension was not enough to meet their needs as the prices of essential commodities were increasing every day. He said that the unemployed youth also welcomed the TRS decision to extend allowance to them.
In Dubbak Assembly Constituency, supporters of Soilipeta Ramalinga Reddy organised a programme where they performed palabhisehkam to the portrait of Chandrashekar Rao. In Siddipet town, the supporters of Irrigation Minister T Harish Rao burst crackers at his residence to celebrate the TRS President’s decision on Tuesday night.
However, the farmers have opined that there was a serious need to consider increasing the loan waiver to Rs 2 lakhs since the district is facing drought conditions this year. The mood of the TRS cadre is upbeat as they started campaigning vigorously in the villages. However, a TRS worker, P Ramesh has said that people were expecting more sops in the manifesto.
