The Telangana government will provide Rs 1 lakh under the 100% subsidy scheme to deserving Muslim candidates, said Home Minister Mohammed Mahmood Ali.
He said that all arrangements for the distribution of cheques have been completed, but due to bank holidays, the programme to hand over cheques of Rs 1 lakh will be held on August 19 instead of August 16 at the exhibition ground in Nampally.
The Minister said that cheques of Rs 1 lakh each will be distributed to 3,600 people chosen from all the 15 Assembly constituencies in Hyderabad as per this programme.
He said that for those selected from districts cheques of Rs 1 lakh will be distributed in the first phase to around 10,000 people. He said that cheques will be distributed in other districts in coming days.
The Home Minister said the Telangana government is working for the welfare of all communities and that a lot of things are being done for the welfare of minorities in Telangana, especially Muslims.He said that under the 100% subsidy scheme, the beneficiaries need not pay even a single Rupee.
A resident of Mahbub Nagar, a student of the Minority Junior College, Mohammad Asrar, secured the 158th rank for AME at the national level in Intermediate, but due to poor finances, it was not possible for him to join the pilot training course.
As per his request, Chief Minister KCR issued instructions to the Principal Secretary of the Minority Welfare Department, Mohammad Asraf, to release Rs 35 lakh so that Asrar can become a pilot.
He said that the Telangana government gave Rs 30 lakh to Salvi Fatima to undergo pilot training.
The Home Minister said that during Congress rule, the development of minorities, especially Muslims, was not supported. He said that the BRS rule of nine and a half years is better than the 48-year Congress rule.
The Home Minister said that the Telangana government spent four times more funds for minorities in these nine and a half years and will soon start a special subsidy scheme for Muslim entrepreneurs.
