Telangana leader Rashtra Samithi made the announcement during a speech at the ‘tribal athmiya Sammelanam’ at the NTR stadium in Hyderabad on Saturday.

“I am very happy today. Congratulations and best wishes to all Tribal and Adivasi tribes. We have launched Kumram Bheem Adivasi and Sewalal Banjara Bhavans at a cost of Rs 60 crore at Banjara Hills in the heart of Hyderabad city for the tribals and the Adivasis,” the CM said.

“SEND A TRIBAL INVOICE TO PREZ”

“To increase reservations for ST to 10%, a resolution was passed at the Telangana assembly and sent to the central government. Prime Minister Modi, why don’t you accept it? I ask you with folded hands. Pass our tribal bill and send it to the president. The president is also an adivasi child, so she will not stop this bill. says KCR.

He added that there were many tribal workers, intellectuals, poets and writers who spoke about tribal issues.

“For 58 years of fighting for Telangana without caste or religion. We have reached the state. The tribal population was 6% in the old state and the tribal caste only got 5% reserve. But in Telangana, their numbers have increased according to the population,” KCR said.

He added, “To increase reservations for STs to 10%, a resolution was passed in the Telangana Assembly and sent to the central government. We made Tandas as Panchayats for the tribal brothers. They govern themselves in the Tandas and the tribal dwellings.

ESTABLISHED GURKULS

“We provide three-phase power and have established gurukuls. We offer 20 lakhs study abroad scholarships. We are very proud that 200 students who studied in gurukuls showed great talent and became doctors and excelled in other branches.

He further questioned the central government and asked if they had done anything good for a community in this country in 8 years.

Talking about the preservation of tribal culture, KCR said tribal festivals and fairs are organized by the government with hundreds of crores. Concluding his speech, KCRS said, “I will shed my last drop of blood to improve the lives of the poor and needy in this country.”
