Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao’s recent decisions have more or less neutralised the weapons the opposition was planning to use against the government.

BRS Ministers are elated over the announcements and are referring to them as their “weapons.” Health Minister Harish Rao termed the announcements by Chief Minister as ‘astras’ and the crop loan waiver as the Brahmastra.

Sharing a similar view, Minister Singireddy Niranjan Reddy said that with the announcement of the crop loan waiver, the opposition has been completely neutralised.

“The CM is also making sure that the opposition doesn’t have any issues to raise and that’s the public mood. In the first phase, Rs 16,144 crore was released to waive the loans of 35.31 lakh farmers. In the second phase, 5.42 lakh farmers got Rs 1,207.37 crore. Now, 31.91 lakh farmers will get Rs 19,000 crore. These are debts created by Congress governments. We are just clearing it,” Niranjan said.

Nearly, 24,000 VRAs will get appointed in government posts and 43,000 TSRTC employees will be absorbed into State government service.

BRS leaders said that due to Podu land title distribution, the party’s vote share has increased by 2 to 3 per cent as per an internal survey.

The events started with Atmeeya Sammelanams which bridged the gap between the BRS leadership and its karyakartas.

Then during the 21-day decennial celebrations, instead of politicians giving the government’s progress report to the people officials did it.

The Podu land title distribution benefitted tribals significantly as they not only got land but also Rythu Bandhu Rythu Bhima sops and free 24-hour power. Police cases against them were also withdrawn.

This BRS government has already increased the reservation for tribals to 10% and made tribal thandas gram panchayats.

“First, we organised party programmes. Now, we are releasing our weapons. In the Assembly we have the upper hand. Generally, the opposition decides the agenda, but now the government is deciding the agenda,” Harish said.
