Hyderabad: Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao announced on Tuesday that the notification for recruitment to fill 25,000 State government posts would be issued in July. In addition, the government would initiate the process of regularising the services of all contract employees with effect from May 2015 itself, he said, during his address at the Parade Grounds on the occasion of the maiden birth anniversary of the State. During his 11-minute address, the Chief Minister unveiled his government’s vision for all-round development of the State.

Although certain post-bifurcation problems were yet to be sorted out, the State government had decided to start the recruitment process. “The allocation of employees is not yet completed. We are still facing many obstacles in the allocation process. Despite these problems, we have decided to fill 25,000 vacant posts.

The notification for the recruitment process will be issued in July and we will also take up the contract employees’ regularisation issue and complete it before the end of this year,” he observed.

The Chief Minister said that they had successfully disproved the claims of anti-Telangana leaders and groups by delivering many wonderful promises within a short span. "Many people have said that the formation of Telangana state would create many problems for its residents.

But, we have successfully disproved these claims in hardly six months. We have succeeded in overcoming the power shortage problem and illuminated the entire State. Buoyed by our achievement, we have now unveiled grand plans to turn the state into a power surplus state, beasides becoming self-reliant. We also have plans to supply power to other states,” he said.

The Chief Minister promised to ensure uninterrupted power supply by the end of 2018 to all segments in the State. He said that Rs 91,000 crore funds had been successfully mobilised to generate 24,076 MW power in the coming days.

Mentioning the commencement of power plant works at Manuguru and Kothagudem areas, the Chief Minister said that he would soon lay the foundation stone for the construction of India’s biggest -- 4,000 MW, ultra-mega power plant at Damaracharla in Nalgonda district.

Greeting the public on the first anniversary of the formation day of the State, KCR said that the State government was spending Rs 2,800 crore for the welfare of various sections of society by implementing Kalyana Lakshmi, Asara pension, Shadi Mubarak, Arogya Lakshmi and other schemes.

On the issue of 44 percent fitment to RTC employees, KCR said that the State government was committed to transforming the corporation into a profit-making entity. An annual grant would be given to state-owned organisation if required, he said.

Commenting on the provision of 12 per cent reservation for STs and minorities in the State, KCR said that the State government had set up two commissions to make suitable recommendations for the provision of reservation.

Steps would be initiated immediately after the submission of the reports of the commissions, he added. The Chief Minister said that his government had allocated generous amounts in the budget to various departments for the overall development of the State in order to fulfil pre-poll promises made by the TRS.

"We have waived off Rs 17,000 crore farm loans and given Rs 400 crore for the modernisation of police force. No government in the country has allocated so much funds for the modernisation of the police force. We have also allocated Rs 20,000 crore to Panchayat Raj and Roads and Buildings Departments for the overall development of road network across the State," he said.

Commenting on the State government’s flagship program Mission Kakatiya, KCR said that the project had been taken up to restore 46,000 tanks across the State and to bring back the glorious era of Kakatiya rulers. The Kakatiya rulers had set an example for the entire world by successfully implementing the watershed program and conserving more than 75,000 tanks.

The government had also implemented several promises which were not part of the manifesto of TRS, the Chief Minister said. On the Haritha Haram front, KCR said there were plans to sow 300 crore plants across the State, and urged people to take part in the program scheduled to begin in July.

The Chief Minister said that the government had decided to construct the Palamuru lift irrigation project to address the fluoride-related problems of the residents of Mahabubnagar and Nalgonda districts. A sum of Rs 35,000 crore was being spent towards construction of the project, he added.

The Chief Minister also said that he would lay the foundation stone for the construction of another massive Kaleswaram lift irrigation project this month. An amount of Rs 30,000 crore would be spent for completion of the project, he said.
