The Congress is making a golden offer to brides to counter the ruling BRS party’s ‘Kalyana Laxmi’ and ‘Shadi Mubarak’ schemes. The Congress is going to give 10 grams (Thulam) of gold to all brides along with Rs 1 lakh. The lone Congress MLC T. Jeevan Reddy proposed this idea to the party’s Manifesto Committee and requested it to include it in the Congress TS election manifesto.
Jeevan met TPCC Manifesto Committee chairman D. Sridhar Babu on Friday and appealed to him to include his proposal in the party manifesto. When ‘The Pioneer’ contacted Manifesto Committee chairman D. Sridhar Babu he said that the party will definitely include it in its manifesto.
It may be recalled that Sridhar Babu has been stating that the Congress will implement whatever they have mentioned in their manifesto after coming to power. The Congress will give 10 grams of gold to all brides apart from Rs 1 lakh under the ‘Pasupu-Kunkuma’ custom.

Now the Congress is planning to give 10 grams (one Thulam) of gold additionally to the Rs 1,00,116 grant.
