Telangana government orders probe in KLIS:- Putting an end to the suspense, the state government has made the decision to establish judicial commissions in order to investigate the alleged multi-crore scams related to the construction of the Kaleshwaram Lift Irrigation Scheme (KLIS) and the Yadadri and Bhadradri thermal power projects during the previous BRS government's tenure. These two commissions will be required to provide their reports within a period of 100 days. Justice Pinaki Chandra Ghose has been appointed to lead the investigation into the alleged misappropriation of funds in the construction of the Kaleshwaram LI scheme, while Justice L Narasimha Reddy will be responsible for examining the construction of the two thermal power projects. The previous BRS government had invested over Rs 2 lakh crore in these projects.

The Chief Minister, A Revanth Reddy, made the announcement regarding the establishment of these judicial commissions during a Cabinet meeting held on Tuesday. The judicial commission for the thermal power projects will also be investigating the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that was signed by the previous government with the Chhattisgarh government for the purchase of power. The government has already obtained information regarding the diversion of funds that were meant for the power purchase and were instead given to intermediaries immediately after the agreement was made.

The previous government's corruption in the Irrigation and Energy sectors is expected to be further exposed by the judicial commissions. In another significant decision, the Cabinet has approved the formation of 16 corporations for different castes, including Reddy and Vysya corporations. Additionally, new white ration cards will be issued, aiming to empower backward communities socially, politically, and economically. The objective is to extend the benefits of the scheme to deserving sub-castes of SC and ST as well. The segregation of white ration cards and Aarogyasri cards will also be reviewed, with Civil Supplies authorities tasked to propose a solution. Furthermore, the Cabinet has ratified the allocation of 25 to 30 acres of land at the ORR for women Self Help Groups. This move aims to provide marketing facilities and promote their products internationally, thus empowering women entrepreneurs.

In 2008, individuals who met the requirements of the DSC were eligible for the allocation of 3,500 Indiramma houses for every Assembly constituency. Additionally, the state Housing Corporation was being revitalized. P Prabhakar, the BC Welfare Minister, assured that the Rythu Bandhu benefit would be credited to everyone within a span of two days. As of now, approximately 84 percent of farmers have already utilized the agricultural input assistance.
