BRS AP general secretary Telkapally Ravindranath Choudhary demanded that the Haj pilgrims from Andhra Pradesh be given some subsidy. Choudhary pointed out that the additional burden on every Haj pilgrim from Andhra Pradesh was Rs 83,000 when compared to those who are undertaking Haj Yatra from Hyderabad.

Haj pilgrim’s expenditure to be brought down to Rs 2.40 lakh, but after the YSRCP came to power the expenditure increased to Rs 3,88,580 while the expenditure for each Haj pilgrim from Hyderabad is only Rs 3,05,000,” Choudhary said.

This clearly indicates that each pilgrim from the State has to bear an additional burden of Rs 83,000, Choudhary said and demanded that this amount be given as a subsidy for the Haj pilgrims.

During the interaction with the Haj Pilgrims Choudhary said that there was no security and no welfare schemes for the Dalits under the Jagan’s regime. He described that an anarchic rule was prevailing in the State wherein cases under the provisions of the SC, ST Atrocities Act were being registered against the Dalits.

Choudhary promised the OBCs, Minorities and Dalits that once the BRS comes to power in the State, stringent action will be initiated against those who filed false cases against Dalits.

The welfare schemes discontinued by the YSRCP government will also be revived, Choudhary assured. The Study Circles too will be re-launched, he said, adding that agricultural implements will be provided on high subsidy.

Choudhary government have not been taken up the works for the roads in the village after the YSRCP came to power and the underground drainage system was very bad.

Stating that CM Jagan was totally neglecting the rural development, Choudhary said the BRS government will take up repairs to the damaged roads and improve the underground drainage system.
