100 days of congress government

Must read

An aspirational journey
For a government to complete a hundred days speaks of its initial successes and reassures it about the journey ahead. It is something like crossing a milestone with renewed commitment and endurance. From day one to the hundredth day, Chief Minister Revanth Reddy has exhibited his multi-tasking abilities by tightening his grip politically and administratively and finally coming out in flying colors, leaving a trail of many welfare measures in his people-centric governance. On this occasion, The Pioneer  takes an overview of the Congress government’s journey so far what could be in store in the days ahead, and how the administration can be better by being more effective and result-oriented.  For any leader, to be in touch with realities constantly ensures his relevance and assures his ascendance. For the  Congress government, it is an occasion to celebrate the fulfillment of promises given to the people of Telangana, the state it has created and is presently nurturing.

One had to be a member of the elite to enter the Pragathi Bhavan just 100 days ago. On last December 7, immediately after taking oath as Chief Minister, Revanth Reddy demolished the Pragathi Bhavan’s fencing and turned it into Praja Bhavan.

Praja Vani is being conducted twice every week, on Tuesdays and Fridays, even if it is a government holiday. Now around 1,000 complaints are being received each day. Around 4.9 lakh complaints have been received during the Praja Vanis conducted so far. Around 1.25 crore Praja Palana complaints were received. This itself indicates the confidence the public has in the government, the authorities said.
Within 48 hours of coming to power, the Arogyasri cover of Rs 10 lakh and the free bus travel scheme for women were rolled out.
The Congress had announced six guarantees containing 11 promises in toto. Five of the promises have been implemented. Under Cheyutha, the Rs 10 lakh medical assistance available under Rajiv Arogyasri has been implemented. Through the Mahalakshmi scheme, two of the three promises have been implemented. Every day 28 lakh women passengers are utilising the free bus travel scheme. Around 25 crore women have used the service now. Based on data received from praja Palana applications, 40 lakh women will get LPG cylinders for Rs 500. The Mahalakshmi scheme which gives Rs 2,500 per month to women has not been implemented so far.

One of the major guarantees, the Gruha Jyothy scheme, has been implemented. The 200 units of free power scheme was rolled out and it benefitted around 40 lakh people. As Praja Palana is continuous, nearly 45,000 zero bills of Gruha Jyothi have been issued after revision.

The Indiramma Indlu scheme was also launched for which the government sanctioned 4.50 lakh Indiramma houses valued at Rs 22,500 crore.

The Congress government cleared the minor hurdles in giving jobs and within three months issued 28,942 offer letters. About 13,571 women got jobs under various categories. The government issued a notification for filling up 11,062 teacher posts through a Mega DSC and 563 Group–1 posts.

The Telangana government re-joined the Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana (PMFBY) scheme in the interests of farmers.

The government agreed to 21 per cent fitment for TSRTC employees. This costs Rs 418 crore every year for the government. A Caste Census Bill has been tabled in the Assembly. The Indiramma Housing Scheme has also been launched.

All three promises under the Rythu Bharosa Gaurantee scheme have not been implemented. The government is however releasing Rythu Bandhu funds to farmers.

Another guarantee of Yuva Vikasam remains to be implemented. Chief Minister Revanth had earlier said that these guarantees would be implemented phase-wise. One major achievement that the Congress government claims is crediting the salaries of government employees on the first of every month.

Deputy CM Bhatti Vikramarka said the Congress government paid salaries to 3,65,262 regular employees and pensions to 2.85 lakh retired employees on the first of this month. This is the first time since August 2019 that TG government employees got salaries on the first day of the month.

After his first trip to Davos, the CM bagged investment worth Rs 40,000 crore including capital from people like Adani.
